This sporty outfit is my absolute favorite look so far on the blog! For those of you who might not be up on your fashion trend terminology, this look would be classified as Athleisure. In other words, when you wear clothes meant for the gym outside of the gym ( to work, to shop etc). I was a little hesitant when I started seeing this trend because it reminded me of the ladies who walked in their sneakers and dress suits at lunch around my college. But then I started playing around with it (no pun intended… well maybe a little!) and I learned to love it.
The athletically challenged and the girly girls should not be afraid of this trend. It can still be flirty and fun if you pair your funky dunks with a body grazing dress. The easiest way to try out Athleisure dressing is with a bomber jacket. They are in every store this season and can simply be paired with a boyfriend tee and your favorite jeans. Also I am not one to shy away from heels, but another bonus is that the trend is friendly to your feet. Can you say SNEAKERS ?! They come in every style, color, and print you could imagine. So if you haven’t quite used that New Years gym membership, you can at least get some use out of your gear!
