STYLE ADVICE A WEEK: Embracing Athleisure

If there’s one trend to adopt this summer, it’s athleisure. What better way to stay cool, confident and comfortable when it’s nearly 90 degrees outside than to rock breezy joggers or a sporty T-shirt dress?

The athleisure trend is simple and versatile. This look can be worn for class, errands, coffee runs or even lunch or dinner dates. The best part of the athleisure trend is how personalized it can be. Dress it up with a trendy bomber jacket with high-rise legging, or keep it casual with some joggers and cropped T-shirt or hoodie. With a staple pair of trainers, an athleisure look is easy to create. And for the Fashionistas that hit the gym on a daily basis, it’s quick and convenient to go straight to the gym from class or errands without changing your entire outfit.

This Fashionista is more than pulling off the athleisure look. Her look features all the key pieces of a well executed athleisure look. With staple accessories, this Fashionista lets her adidas T-shirt dress be the star of the show. She added a black bomber and gray Converse to keep the look simple. Also, I am slightly obsessed with the faux fur pom-pom keychain on her Tommy Hilfiger backpack—it’s just too cute!

What’s your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Athleisure shouldn’t be taken too seriously. It’s a trend that a lot of people overdo, but the best looks are the ones that are effortless. I love putting a quick look like this together on the mornings when I don’t feel like spending a lot of time on my outfit.”
