Athleisure style is in! This is the art of wearing gym clothes all day. It may sound like something only suited to gym fanatics but actually, the athleisure looks can be worn by everyone. It’s a sporty and fun look that is both practical and stylish.
And what’s more, if you fancy building up a bit of a sweat or going for an afternoon jog through the park you’re set up to go for it without having to change.
Here’s 4 ideas for how to rock the athleisure look.
1. Comfy Yoga Pants
Did you know Yoga is such a big thing now there’s even an international yoga day that is celebrated all over the world?
It’s a great activity that can help you connect spiritually as well as work out parts of your body you never ever realized needed working out.
But you don’t have to be a yogi to be able to enjoy a good pair of yoga pants. They are designed for flexibility and can help you feel more able to move as well as enjoying comfort throughout the day.
Yoga pants also come in sparkly and bright colors meaning you can express yourself more.
2. Great Sneakers
A great pair of sneakers helps give you the edge and can round off a nice athleisure look. If you’re looking to shop for sneakers be sure once again to choose a color and style which matches your personality and complements the rest of your outfit.
Also, remember that you don’t have to always think practically when it comes to choosing the colors. If you’re planning on wearing them for everyday use and only some light jogging then you can pick a color like pink or bright yellow and not have to worry about getting them dirty.
Hoodies are no longer just the preserve of those on the way to the gym in the winter nor are they just for sneaking out to the corner shop after a hard night of partying. In fact, hoddies can be worn as part of the athleisure look.
You can rep your favorite sports team or your alma mater on a personalized hoody in colors to match your yoga pants and other parts of your outfit. Personalized hoodies are quite cheap to produce so look out for some good deals or order from your old university or college.
4. Sports Bras
It might seem odd when you say you’re going to walk around in just your underwear but we have finally reached the stage where this is socially possible.
Sports bras can be both really comfy in hot weather and can allow you to feel much more open. Combined with a pair of yoga pants and comfy sneakers, you don’t look out of place at all.
Athleisure Style is In
Athleisure style is the ultimate in comfort and style. No longer do you have to sweat in jeans or tops, you can work out and then head straight into town for a coffee with your friends without having to change and you’ll still look good.
