It’s 8:00 a.m. on a Monday and you’re not fully ready to start the day, but that 9:00 a.m. class on your mind makes you part away from your sweet, sweet bed. You shuffle out of bed, and think, “Shoot, what am I going to wear? I’ve worn a sweater and pair of leggings every day.” Does this situation sound familiar? Well, fear not! There is a solution to wear your leggings without looking like a bum.
The solution is athleisure, which is the combination of athletic and leisure clothing. It is truly one of this year’s biggest trends, and it’s here to stay. With this trend, you’ll never have to sacrifice comfort for sleekness and vice versa. Everyone from celebrities to models off-duty to fashion bloggers are embracing this trend, because they’ve mastered the look! If they can rock it while completing their errands, so can you.
Take inspiration from this Fashionista that’s heading to class. She transformed her gym clothes to look sporty chic. This is a look that will last all day. For an early class, a light jacket can accommodate the cold weather, and for those warm afternoons, this outfit can surely be delayered without losing its trendiness.
She combines this jacket with staple items: a crop top, leggings and her amazing Nike kicks. This Fashionista was smart enough to know that the power of accessories in athleisure. To accessorize, she wore a baseball cap and a simple watch, all of which are functional for the girl on the go.
One Simple Change: Heading somewhere after class like lunch with friends or taking a stroll downtown? Swap out the baseball cap for some sunglasses and add a cross-body bag to elevate this casual look.
