Attention fashionistas, in honor of Fashion Week just wrapping up in New York City, we’re talking FASHION on the blog! A huge trend that we’ve seen again and again the last few seasons dominated the runways once again: athleisure. This trend is not going any where… and we couldn’t be happier. What makes us love the athleisure trend so much is how easily wearable and versatile it is. It’s like taking your gym clothes to the streets… and having that be OK! Let your workout pieces get twice the mileage as they do double duty: both in the gym and out.
The Cute Workout Bag:
Check out this bag by Adidas. This bag gets a touch of flair with a lacy floral print on a luxe snakeskin-embossed background. The detachable shoulder strap adjusts for a comfortable carry, making it perfect for toting around your gym clothes or doubling as your purse. Pair it with this super comfy jumpsuit and it’s drawstring waist by Michael Kors, grab your Paige denim jacket just in case Mother Nature can’t make up her mind, and throw on your favorite classic Reeboks.
Long gone are the days where your sweatshirt is meant to be worn only at home, when you’re chilling with no make-up on. Athleisure has stepped up the sweatshirt game, and given it style that needs to be seen! Check out this tie-hem sweatshirt by Daily Look, styled with Spring’s hottest denim trend, the undone hem, by 3×1. Pumps elevate this look to make it more flirty than sloppy, and accessorize with a great handbag and color coordinated wrist candy!
The Lifestyle Sneaker.
If and when the fashion industry starts introducing stilettos that are as comfortable as sneakers, we’ll start rocking them every single day. After all, we love what a pair of heels does to our legs and bum! But until then, we ladies are either silently wishing we are wearing sneakers, or trying to come up with an excuse to wear them out of the gym and into the office. And then then fashion gods made that task simple, by gifting us this gift of Athleisure. Below, we’ve styled a sleeveless midi dress by Michael Kors, with a never-goes-out-of-style leather moto jacket by Wilson’s Leather. (Seriously, EVERY girl needs a leather moto jacket in their closet arsenal!). Throw on your fav shades, in this case our Ray-Ban’s, make a statement with a killer cross body bag, like this one (also by Michael Kors), and slip into your sneaks. Your feet will thank you, and your Air Max’s have totally stepped up this street style.
So there you have it: embrace the comfort that is athleisure wear… but know your style is on fleek with these looks!
