With so many fun and trendy athletic pieces out there, it’s not fair that we only get to bring out our sports bras, leggings, and workout tops for 1 hour a day. Fortunately, athleisure has crossed over to become a legit fashion trend. So how do you wear your workout gear to make a ‘grammable fitness fashion statement? Check out these easy tips to help you create fun athleisure outfits that are cute and comfy enough for all-day everyday wear.
Sweatpants + Cardigans (Enough said.)
For the ultimate comfy athleisure look (and one of my favorites), combine a cardigan with your favorite sweatpants. With such a cozy look, feel confident showing a sliver of skin with a cropped sports bra. PSA: you don’t have to have abs of steel to pull off this look, loves. All you need is confidence!
When in doubt, add a jacket.
Whether it tied around your waist or simply worn, a jacket is a great way to take your athletic look from the gym to coffee with girlfriends. To make a basic jacket pop, pile on the textures with a mesh tank and glossy leggings.
Get pretty in pastels.
Not all gym gear has to be a crazy color. Instead, pick a pretty hue like blush to wear with chilled out grays. If you’re choosing pieces with technical features like moisture-wicking materials, you can wear your outfit during the day and take it straight to the gym in the evening. (Which creates less laundry too. Win-win!)
Printed leggings + A funky top
The easiest way to take your gym wear outside of the gym is by pairing your favorite printed leggings with unique yet neutral tops. Black is always a strong color choice to tone down and class up a crazy print. Asymmetrical silhouettes and subtle mesh panels add a little sass.
This look works perfectly for right after a workout too! Find a patterned pullover such as this of-the-moment star print sweatshirt and throw it over almost any legging for an effortlessly stylish look. (Bonus points for adding color blocking or mixing your prints.)
