While watching Super Bowl 51, Falcons Rise Up (Home Team), why not be comfortable, yet chic, with the latest and trendy Athleisure Wear. Now more than ever, you'll see women wearing workout gear as a casual outfit. It's becoming more acceptable to wear workout gear all day versus solely at the gym. Whether it be at the movies, waiting in line, grocery shopping, lunch date, grabbing coffee, and/or drinks, athleisure wear is one of the hottest trends from young to old. Athleisure wear is defined as leggings, hoodies, graphic tees, sneakers, sports bras, tanks, etc., anything worn comfortably, is pretty much IT. If wearing gym clothes is not "your thing", then pair your athleisure wear with a street styled piece such as a leather jacket, a plaid shirt tied around the waist, or even aviator glasses to give your outfit some pop. Another great thing about athleisure wear, is that it can worn any season. In a recent Vogue article (I love Vogue), it expressed The 5 Golden Rules of Athleisure, which are the following:
Keep up with seasonal trends - Mesh is out, while patterns and color blocking are in.
Invest in pieces that mix function with fashion - Focus on buying performance fabric and pair it a with a graphic tee or hoodie or cool adidas to turn your outfit from athletic to athleisure.
Accessorize Appropriately - from gym wear to street, add a Nike Zip-up wind breaker or Adidas Hoodie, Pea Coat, or a nice handbag.
Dress for the occasion - know when and where to wear the athleisure look, its not for every occasion.
When in doubt, stick to neutrals - stick with more geometric prints, black, gray, blue to pair with more pieces of clothing. But if feeling bold, introduce some colors into the leisure wear.
Take Away Message: It is okay to wear you leggings all day, but IT is HOW you wear them!
