By now, you’ve probably noticed that there has been a noticeable style shift taking over the workplace, home, school and just about anywhere else you go. That’s right – it’s athleisure. Beginning with the humble yoga pant and exploding into entire lines, the athletic + leisure movement may not just be a fad, but a trend that’s here to stay. Here are the pieces you’ll need to complete this wardrobe:
The Comfy Corporate – the days of stiff, stuffy and uncomfortable office apparel are behind us, as more and more working professionals embrace soft materials in sweaters and blazers. This look maintains a polished appearance without breaking a sweat.
The Jogger – this is a rising trend spreading like wildfire among the millenial demographic. The jogger is a style of pant that is generally cinched at the waist, loose throughout and cinched again at the ankle. It’s popularly made from sweatpant material, but can also be found increasingly in denim, khaki and chino material. A major reason for its popularity is that by cinching at the ankle, shoes are more visible…so be sure to pair them with a fresh set of kicks!
Dri-Fit Tee – Whether you’re running errands, in the office or just stepping off a treadmill, you can’t go wrong with a stylish dri-fit tee. We especially love this tee not only because of it’s breathable material, but because the color-block pattern provides a contemporary and flattering silhouette.
The Modern Zip – It’s all about the details! An athletic cut creates a clean, stylish shape. The ladies’ version of this style shows a slanted zipper and layered collar, adding an interesting flair that dresses up the look.
Classic Quarter-Zip – this versatile piece looks great on the golf course, at the gym or in the office, and can be layered for the chilly Autumn weather.
Relaxed Unisex – one of the best things about this trend is the emphasis of “leisure” in athleisure. Because this trend embraces comfort, many styles can be unisex rather than offer a men’s and women’s version.This slouchy, relaxed fit looks good on all body types regardless of gender.
