The "it" trend: Athleisure

23 Sep 2016

The buzz around athleisure has reached a fever pitch. In light of its practical appeal—a trend combining athletic and leisure apparel that transitions seamlessly from gym to post-workout plans—it’s not hard to see why.

Street style queens Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn and the Hadid sisters certainly don’t need persuading: these celebrity icons have already made the trend all their own, working shapely leggings and classic sporty bomber jackets into their everyday repertoires.

MASTERING THE LOOK 

If there's one principle to remember, it's breathability. The last thing you want is to show up at dinner looking in desperate need of a shower, so stick to well-ventilated materials that will keep you dry even after your workout.

Urban details are another must: keep an eye out for pieces enhanced with graphic seaming or sheer accents, for example, for stylish outfits that won't miss a beat as you head from training to get-togethers with friends.

You can even explore mix-and-match collections from KoralAlo YogaAdidas by Stella McCartney and Adidas Stella Sport, which deliver the coveted technical aspects of sports attire while also blending easily into your daily wardrobe.

AN OUTFIT FOR EVERY OCCASION

Ever wish you could sit through meetings at work in your gym wear? Athleisure has you covered: Pick out a dress shirt and chic training leggings, throw on a pair of killer heels and finish the ensemble with a softly curled hairdo to stride into that boardroom with confidence.

Once you’ve made it to the weekend, sacrificing comfort is hardly an option. Turn heads with a master class in casual chic by pairing a romantic dress with sporty shoes.

Planning a Saturday-evening girls night out? Tastefully combined with high-waisted jeans, your strappy athletic bras are the key to a fashion-forward look. 

Athleisure combines the best of two worlds, a way to capture everyday elegance while staying in the comfort of your gym clothes. What are you waiting for?
