Fashion can be either totally predictable or the complete opposite. Do you agree? Sometimes we can predict what trend will rock the runways next season, and sometimes we can be thrown a curveball. Who would’ve thought that sports and fitness wear would become such a popular casual look? But with so many different options, designs, and ways to wear this type of clothing, athleisure is a thing, and it isn’t going anywhere. So I thought I would share with you some of the ways you can wear this trend.
Stick with classic brands
There are certain items of athleisure that you should go for classic brands. This will ensure you get both the quality and desired look you are going for. There are recognizable styles that have just stood the test of time. I would say Adidas would be one of them. From the signature tracksuit pant design to the classic sneaker, the combination not only looks amazing, but it’s a design that has been around for quite a while. Rocking this look is all about longevity, and not something that you are going to need to replace in a few months.
Mix and match textures and materials
Sports chic and clothing styles provide the perfect opportunity to mix and match materials and textures. From the fitted lycra styles to the oversized cotton t-shirts, the trend works well with a mixture of the two. Metallic is huge at the moment, and this is an area where you could incorporate that into your daily activewear. Think motivational motifs or metallic features on your trainer option. Not only do you look good outside of the gym, but you also will look awesome when working out as well.
Don’t be afraid of color
We have seen a real increase in color when it comes to sportswear, and I think designers are not afraid of being quirky and eccentric with the overall design. Of course, you don’t have to be too crazy and consider fluorescent styles. But don’t be afraid of adding some form of color to your athleisure outfit. It’s the time to experiment with color and see what works for you.
If there were ever a time to ditch the heels, this would be it. Embrace sneakers and give your feet a break. Sports chic doesn’t mean you have to be wearing leggings or tracksuit pants, rocking a sneaker shoe with a pair of skinny jeans and oversized hoodie is the ultimate in relaxed clothing attire, but still with a maximum effect in this particular look.
Comfort and style go hand in hand
Finally, athleisure means you have an element of comfort to your style, which can mean it’s the perfect choice of outfit when you have plenty of errands to do or shopping to get done. The comfort isn’t just in the footwear but the fit of the clothing.
I hope this has offered you a few tips on how you can rock the sports chic look.
