STYLE ADVICE: All Black Athleisure

STYLE ADVICE: All Black Athleisure

When it comes to day-to-day style, comfort is always key. I could put together what I think is the cutest outfit ever, but I won’t make it until noon without changing if it’s uncomfortable. That is why I love the athleisure trend so much. Style stars, like Gigi Hadid, have made it trendy to wear leggings and a crop top to places other than the gym, and I’m here for it. Plus, if you do want to go to the gym at the end of the day, there is no need to go home and change!

Now that temperatures are getting warmer, it is finally time to replace those winter garments with your summer pieces. Don’t throw all your jackets in a plastic bin just yet! A light leather jacket, like the one this Fashionista is wearing, works with any outfit for days when it is sunny out, but the temperature just does not match up. It’s one of those pieces than can be worn with any top or bottom, and it still looks cool. What is even cooler is the way this Fashionista matched her leather jacket to her leather sneakers. The sneakers are a cool update from your normal slip-ons and take her leggings and graphic T-shirt up a notch. And yes, you can still wear an athletic department T-shirt, even if the most athletic thing you do is watch from the sidelines with a bag of roasted peanuts.

Of course, no spring or summer outfit is complete without a pair of statement sunglasses. I’ve started wearing mine on cloudy days just because they make any outfit look 10 times more put together. Plus, they eliminate the need for under eye concealer and cover up the bags I’ve gotten from weeknight Netflix marathons.

Athlesiure is something that can be adapted to fit any season–shorts and a crop top in the summer and leggings and beanies in the winter. It shows that being high fashion doesn’t have to be high maintenance all pf the time. Maybe this year we can hope to see pajama pants, old T-shirts, and bedhead coming down the runway?
