How to rock the athleisure look

You know that athleisure is here to stay right? It’s now totally acceptable to wear comfy gym clothes to breakfast, dinner and even drinks (maybe?!). And we love it! So here are our simple tips for rocking the athleisure look.

Statement Jacket

If you are looking athletic you are going to feel athletic right? Wearing clothes that are going to help you feel motivated are great for keeping yourself productive and positive throughout your day. Adding a statement jacket will help pull your look together, transforming your style from the gym to catwalk!

Leggings

It may be getting colder outside, but that doesn’t mean you need to wear long johns all season. Nail the athleisure look – and stay warm! – by getting yourself some killer leggings! Check out the latest sport leggings from the high street like Gap, H&M, New Look and River Island for their on-trend collections of bottoms that will totally achieve the ‘off-duty model look’.

Sports Bra

Although athleisure probably isn’t the most obvious partywear, you could get creative and turn your simple outfit into something eye catching by adding a cute sports bra underneath your top. Or even team up your everyday jumper with a colourful bra underneath for a flattering detail.

Footwear

Embrace the athleisure trend by wearing footwear that will keep you comfortably chic all day long. But before you make a dash for your worn and torn gym shoes, it’s important to remember that shiny stylish footwear footwear is what makes the athleisure trend super stylish. Smelly old kicks are a no-go!

Accessorize

Finally, to complete the athleisure look you need a few key accessories. Add a hat, jewellery, or a glamorous gym bag in similar tones to finish up your outfit. But, if you want to keep it simple, a sports hat in black or a muted colour will do the trick.
