5 Outfit Ideas: How To Wear Athleisure Style Outside the Gym
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.)
