“Athleisure” has been my favorite style as of lately; it is the newest aspirating lifestyle! It has evolved past the T-shirt & yoga pants combo and into chic and colorful pieces.
rag & bone is a new favorite brand that I have been following for the past couple of seasons. They are known for their mix of sport and street therefore remained focused on athleisure for their spring 2016 ready-to-wear by offering a mix of sneakers and sporty sandals. They also mastered the art of simple layering by incorporating bomber jackets and sweaters over slip and tank dresses.
Taking inspiration from “athleisure” and rag & bone, I created my look based on functionality and everyday comfort. I have always wanted to try pairing a midi dress with sneakers. The round hem in my dress made the look casual enough to wear it with my current favorite sneaks. To make my ensemble warmer and to complement my olive dress, I topped off my look with a pastel pink T-shirt. I made this outfit less frumpy by tying a knot to the front of the shirt–a subtle detail that completely changes the silhouette!
For Fashionistas/os in cooler climate, layer your attire with a crewneck sweater, a bomber jacket for sportier look, or an oversized denim jacket.
It takes one piece to transition from athletic to a more sophisticated street style look such as “athleisure”. A bomber jacket, a graphic T-shirt or your favorite casual dress—the key is that this piece has a sporty feel and most of all, be comfortable.
