STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Athletic Aesthetic

No matter where you go to school, you are probably at that point in the semester when it feels like you’ve hit a brick wall. Even though it’s still early in year, you’ve spent numerous hours in the computer lounge and countless hours attempting to force yourself to read those awful (and expensive) textbooks. With all this stress, deciding to look presentable for class may be taking the backseat. So what happens when the energy is so no longer there? Luckily, this Fashionista has the answer.

The first thing to pay attention to is this Fashionista’s color choice. Black can do no wrong, ladies. Never be afraid that you’re wearing too much black because it’s impossible. This Fashionista not only looks sporty, but chic too. The lime green contrast of her Victoria’s Secret PINK half-zip offers just the right amount of color (caution: unlike wearing black, too much lime green is possible and should be avoided).

Looking at this Fashionista’s sports bra, let’s just take a minute to think about how the style of sports bras has changed within the last two years. With designers finally looking into more interesting necklines (shout out to bandeaus and bralettes for the inspiration), it gives us Fashionistas/os something to smile about. Finally cute sports bras exist, and there’s no reason not to show it off—subtly that is.

Finally, this Fashionista pairs her outfit with a pair of white Keds. Just because you’re dressed in clothes that you can wear to the gym, doesn’t mean you have to limit yourself to your running sneakers. White sneakers are a huge trend. By adding these cute canvas sneakers, this Fashionista transforms her outfit from “cute-gym-gal” to “ sporty-chic chick.”

When you’re too exhausted in the morning, the easy solution is too reach for the oversized sweatpants and your favorite T-shirt from high school. But with the athletic trend sweeping the nation, this Fashionista proves that there’s a way to be comfy and still look fashionable even while dealing with all the stresses of the day.
