WHAT TO WEAR: Day n' Night

WHAT TO WEAR: Day n' Night

Menswear isn’t great just because you can steal your boyfriend’s hoodie and wear it as a sweater dress, but menswear is great because it is easy to style. Simple pieces with a little bit of layering and accessorizing go a long way. That is what caught my eye with this Fashionisto’s outfit. He is the prime example of the popular athleisure trend and wearing an outfit that easily transitions from day to night.

The athleisure boom is the reason it’s becoming more acceptable to wear the same outfit the entire day. This Fashionisto’s look makes the perfect transition of going from class and running day errands to dinner and drinks in the evening, without looking like he just rolled out of bed.

If you’re going for this type of look, it is best to invest in pieces that work well with fashion and function well too. This Fashionisto one-upped athleisure by wearing black Zanerobe skinny jeans cuffed at the ankle, instead of joggers, and an olive green Zanerobe shirt.

It takes one or two statement pieces that can take your look from day to night, or in the athleisure world, from the gym to the street. This technique works whether it’s sunglasses or tying a shirt around your waist. This Fashionisto wore a black “dad hat,” which gives it a sporty feel that works for daytime and a Calvin Klein denim jacket, which works for the full transition into nighttime.

Activewear lines like Adidas are working hard by creating clothing that blurs the lines between the gym and the everyday look. Sneakers have become a street style staple in pop culture. Shoes that are made for running have now created a name for themselves by being embedded in the street style aesthetic. This Fashionisto completed his outfit by wearing black NMD R1s by Adidas.

From easy transitions to comfortable and fashionable all in one, this trend is perfect for both men and women, and easy to create with pieces that are already in your closet. The athleisure trend doesn’t seem to being going anywhere anytime soon, so add it to the list of trends to try on your next busy day.
