GAL APPROVED! How To Slay The Athleisure Look!

By   |   August 30, 2019   |   Gal Approved

Athleisure is a trend that just keeps on giving! Check out these great tips — and great brands — that are driving this fashionably fit trend.

WEAR. Brands like Girlfriend Collective and Vuori release new collections that are dedicated to the trend every season. The designers behind their popular ranges really know how to elevate workout clothes and make them stylishly yet super comfortable. If this is a style that you’d like to try for yourself and incorporate into your wardrobe, these are two great ones to start your athleisure fashion adventure

Embracing athleisure fashion doesn’t mean ditching your signature style since it’s actually all about subtly mixing activewear with regular clothes. Think bomber jackets and sports bras paired with sleek skinny jeans. You can try out this concept with one of these The Strategist-approved thermal bras. Pair it with a classic leather biker jacket from Topshop, full-length leggings and your favorite running shoes for an cool, but not too structured look.

ACCESSORIZE. We understand that you don’t normally wear your fancy watch and shiny bangles to the gym, but an important part of athleisure is accessorizing. Less is more, so make sure to choose only the best pieces to set off your look. Throw on a pair of trendy hoop earrings by Sophie Buhai along with a sporty hat and a muscle tee. This creates a nice balance between looking like you’re on the way to the gym and snagging a look straight off the runway.

EXPERIMENT. The best part of any fashion trend is that you can make it your own by experimenting, and the same goes for athleisure fashion. Wearing a long dress with sneakers may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of athleisure, but it works. When you take the flowing silhouettes from the range of different dresses on Woman Within and combine them with something practical like running shoes, every delicate ruffle or cinched waist is highlighted through this contrast. You can also try pairing jogging pants with chic ankle booties from CAT Footwear. And then polish off your outfit with the right accessories. Stick to minimal options like a gold-face watch and a dainty necklace.

TREND. Just because you’re mainly using activewear for this trend, doesn’t mean you can just throw on any old sports bra. Athleisure revolves around seasonality, one of the core ideas of fashion: what you wear in the summer isn’t always appropriate for fall. Additionally, while neon is a hot trend right now, it doesn’t mean that it will be next year, too. You can get ideas by checking out your fave athleisure brands’ Instagram pages to see which colors and designs are in for the season.

All in all, athleisure fashion is an exciting trend to try out and experiment with, and is definitely something that will stick around for a while. There are no real strict guidelines on how to rock it, so as with all things fashion — learn the rules and then have fun breaking them!
