I believe it is not only me who is totally excited about athleisure trend. What can be more relaxing than being able to wear sporty clothes outside the gym or home? Let’s be honest we don’t always feel like glam things up with heels and a dress and if we get the chance to feel comfortable and fashionable at the same time we’re jumping to the roof.
So what is athleisure all about? It is a mix of gym wear and casual everyday clothing. This includes leggings too, whether you consider them as trousers or not. So if you were returning from the gym in leggings, top and a denim jacket already the good news is you can wear this even when you are far away from any sport’s area. Here is how you can make athleisure work for you in your everyday.
Meeting girls for brunch on Saturday? It is a lovely way to spend a weekend but why should you always opt for a jeans and a jacket if you can make it a little more comfortable. After all girls talks can last for hours. Laid back trousers will allow you to sit behind the table and enjoy. Add a bit of glam with shiny sneakers, lovely turtleneck and warm up in chic coat.

As the word already suggest you will be running from one place to another like a busy bee. Make it comfortable as much as you can, including with your outfit choice. Printed leggings can certainly be worn outside your home, especially when teamed with lovely top and trainers for looking good. A leather jacket gives the outfit rocker chic vibes while watch is the accessory that gives the final touch to everything.

Going to work
It might sound odd wearing sporty clothes to work because the office seems the latest place to wear them but it can work really nice. You just have to find pieces that blend into your day at the office outfit. Tank top is a great way to start experimenting. It looks sophisticated when teamed with a midi skirt and elegant flat shoes. On top you can choose a blazer or if your work wear rules are a little more stretchy, even a bomber.
