Athleisure wear. These days it’s here, there and everywhere. Keri Russell donned a Ragg & Bone tuxedo with a tracksuit vibe to it to the Met Gala. Katy Perry wore a black sports bra to a Chanel Dinner. Gigi Hadid has been rocking the sweatsuit look on countless occasions. And everyone from Kendall Jenner, Jennifer Aniston and Victoria Beckham has been spotted on the streets donned in stylish track pants. What’s not to love about the sporty look? Athleisure is both comfy and stylish at once and it seems the trend is here to stay. Whether matching a top with something fancier on the bottom, or vice versa with sporty pants and a dressier shirt or jacket; or embracing the look in full, there are lots of athletic looks to embrace. Here are a few of the athleisure brands and styles we’re embracing these days.
We absolutely love the Union Blush Snake Legging and BrooksBlush Snake Bra by Varley. What better way to up the ante than with a snake print? The V-style front on the sports bra gives a more sophisticated vibe to a traditional sports bra. This is so cute, we’d even pair it with some high-waisted, flared trousers or a high-wasted skirt if you’re feeling a little daring.
Carbon38 never disappoints with their fashionable and fitness-forward pieces. The Rebel Pullover is a great throw-on over a tank or sports bra post-workout. Even if you’re not hitting the gym, it’s still a great go-to to pair with jeans or jean shorts for a casual, didn’t-try-too-hard, but look-great outfit.
Mira Rae’s Kali Vest is the perfect option to cover up after a workout, or coordinate with a pair of jeans for a casual look for weekend brunch. The flowy, oversized hood, which was inspired by an Indian Dupatta scarf can be worn up, down or to the side for multiple uses.
The French Terry Romper from Terez has got us craving the warm summer months already! What’s easier and more stylin’ than throwing on a little romper for a hot day? The terry material makes for uber comfort too.
The trick with athleisure is to make sure it’s both that: athletic and leisure. In other words, fashion and function combined. Otherwise, what’s the point of wearing a look defined by comfort and style?
