How To Rock Athleisure


Athleisure has been a growing trend within the past few years. Ever since Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner started wearing their statement leggings and oversized sweatshirts out in public the whole world has pivoted around the idea that wearing comfy gym clothes can actually be cool.

But throwing on just any old gym shirt (like the high school one you wear on your lazy days) isn't exactly the trendy athlesiure we're talking about. We're talking that model off-duty, fashion forward athleisure - that makes all of us say "goals".

Now, we understand how difficult it can be to master if this is your first time taking a stab at it. So in order to help you achieve the athleisure look while staying in trend with SS18, we've got our top 6 tips to rocking this sporty and highly popular trend:

Incorporate bold and fun colors

Athleisure for spring and summer 2018 means a lot of color. On the runway we saw a lot of bright yellows, blues, and pinks incorporated with athleisure, so adding it into your athletic pieces is a necessity. We suggest adding a bright sweater or jacket to a neutral pant.

Throw it Back

What's more trendy than athleisure?? Throwback athleisure. Whether it is on the runway or on a celebrity outing, we're seeing a mix of the 60's, 80's and 90's with athleisure. When putting together your look try incorporating a piece that has that "retro vibe", like a nice pair of flared track pants or a bright nike windbreaker (Hello thrift shops!!!).

Wear crisp shoes

With the athleisure look, crisp clean shoes are a definite necessity. It's time to say good bye to your trainers from high school and elevate your look. When choosing your shoe, try adding a pop of color or go for a high top for a more trendy and edgy look.

Incorporate patterns

Patterns made a huge entrance for SS18 athleisure. We saw it on dresses, pants, sweaters, and shoes, so incorporating it into your athleisure look is a must. We suggest mixing bold color and pattern together such as a bright pink floral shirt with a more neutral pant. Or if you're adventurous try pattern on pattern - a look we loved on the runway.

Try Co-ords

Co-ords are the best invention - seriously, they make putting together an outfit so much easier. What's more the incorporation of co-ords into athleisure makes you look more bad ass than ever before. If you're looking to be bold with this look try a bold colored co-ord.

When in doubt! Leggings.

When in doubt always opt for a legging. Leggings are the perfect way to turn any outfit from office or glam to every day athleisure. Sporty and fun, we suggest grabbing either a neutral (if you have a bold top) or bold print (if you have a neutral top), depending on the look you want to achieve.
