WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

July 8th, 2015 at 2:00am

After a long work week, I always feel like spending the entire weekend in sweatpants and sneakers. Thankfully, activewear has become a prevalent trend in New York City street style this summer. Now that leggings, loose-fitting T-shirts and your favorite pair of Nike sneakers are no longer just for the gym, you finally have an excuse to wear your comfiest clothes all weekend long.

I spotted this Fashionista in SoHo wearing the epitome of this latest activewear meets ready-to-wear trend. She cleverly puts together a black tank top with a pair of black joggers to create the illusion of a jumpsuit. Joggers are great for days when you need a break from those restricting pairs of skinny jeans. They pretty much feel like a pair of glorified pajama pants, and can look incredibly chic. For shoes, this Fashionista chose a black pair of sneakers. A neutral sneaker can easily be incorporated to an everyday look, making it casual without sacrificing sophistication. While walking the streets of downtown New York City for the day, she carries an oversized leather bag that fits all of her weekend essentials. Sticking to an all-black ensemble keeps the outfit looking sleek, which makes these pieces look less casual and focuses on the shape of the outfit as a whole. If you’re looking for an excuse to ditch the denim this weekend, take it from this Fashionista and grab your favorite pair of joggers instead!

One Simple Change: Decided to go for a quick run in between weekend plans? Swap the joggers for a pair of running shorts for an outfit that’s more workout-friendly.
