Trend Alert: Athleisure

Posted on

Let’s hope you’re not getting tired of the word ‘Athleisure’ because the trend certainly isn’t going anywhere any time soon. In fact, if anything, it’s picking up steam with every season.
The sportswear-meets-streetwear blend is all about layering your gym clothes in with ultra stylish pieces, mixing and matching for a look that’s relaxed and confident.
Alexander Wang recently collaborated with H&M for a futuristic Athleisure line that was so hugely popular, it sold out almost instantly. Spring 16 Athleisure from Michael Kors has a strong preppy theme too, predominantly in black and white.
There is an art to Athleisure- bringing your favorite sweat pants and hoodie out of the house and looking stylish while doing so, means more than just beat-up UGG boots and messy hair.
Ladies, add a sporty jacket to your skirt and blouse combination for work, or team our Fashion Joggers with a cropped jacket and running shoes. You can even rock this look on date night, wearing a Hoodie or Hoodie Cape with slim leg jeans or a slip dress. Level up the look by putting some ankle boots on with your cuffed sweats.
For guys, the Spring Jacket with Removable Hood is the ultimate transitional piece that looks just as good with sweats as it does with a pair of jeans. If you’re going to wear sneakers, make sure they’re in clean, crisp condition and keep the look sharp with a good watch and a knit hat.
