how to wear basic black leggings

The workout wardrobe recipe of head-to-toe black is getting a bit stale. Shorter, darker days and big New Year’s resolutions require more inspiring options to pair with your basic black leggings. Yet, fitness’ ever-popular brights aren’t for everyone. Stylist Lindsay stepped in to whip up an Edit full of subtler shades and unique details for all your winter workouts. Spice up your go-to fitness look with her purple-hued picks.

Jazz Up Basic Black Leggings

Icy Lavender

Pantone’s color of the year, Ultra Violet, is popping up everywhere, but I love this softer, frostier shade of purple for winter. It feels fresh and feminine and is a low key way to add color to your look. Pair the longline Moderate Crop Bra with a high-waisted legging for yoga or wear the high-neck Elle Tank for high-impact workouts.

 

Jazz Up Basic Black Leggings: Mesh

Mesh Bomber

When the weather cools down, it’s time to turn up the heat on your workout. Head to hot yoga or a steamy spin class—it feels like a mini tropical vacation on a rainy or snowy day. The Mesh Bomber Jacket, available in black and white, is both fashion-forward and ventilating for your post-workout cooldown.

 

Jazz Up Basic Black Leggings: Graphic Tee

Uplifting Graphics

Feel-good graphics are a great way to show a little positive personality and combat the winter blues. The Dave Crewneck Sweater‘s slightly oversized fit and soft sweater knit fabric make this a piece you’ll want to live in all weekend long—not just to and from the gym.

 

Jazz Up Basic Black Leggings: Tie Dye

Bye-Bye Basic

Go a step further and swap out your basic black leggings with a statement color or artistic print. Each pair of Sunset Leggings is individually hand-pigmented using a shibori tie-dye technique, so no two are alike. I wear these everywhere from barre class to brunch—they add a subtle boho touch that’s a welcome contrast to more technical pieces. I also love the lavender color trend for bottoms. The Sculpt Leggings look incredible paired with the Moderate Crop Bra and a neutral-colored drapey tank.

 

Jazz Up Basic Black Leggings: Sports Bra

Essential Support

It’s so important to have the right support for every activity—it can make or break your workout. Current favorites include the strappy, super-feminine Sierra Bra for low impact activities like yoga and pilates and the Full Force Bra (in purple, of course) for cardio.

Tis the season of excess—from gloriously gluttonous Thanksgiving meals to Black Friday shopping sprees. No judgement—we love a great meal and a good deal as much as the next person. Yet, amidst all the clamor surrounding doorbusters and online deals, we choose to see Thanksgiving as an opportunity for gratitude and giving back.

This Thanksgiving weekend, for every Style item purchased, we’re donating a piece of clothing to the Milwaukee Women’s Center,  supporting women in our community that are most in need. Contribute now through Sunday by ordering a Style Edit using the link below. We’ll donate a minimum of 500 pieces of women’s apparel.

 

MWC: Supporting Women

 

Founded in 1980, the Milwaukee Women’s Center provides comprehensive services and treatment for women, men, and children whose lives have been affected by domestic violence, addiction, mental health issues, and poverty.  Their Bottomless Closet provided free clothing, mentoring, and job readiness skills to 442 women and 269 men re-entering the workforce in 2016. For every item purchased from Style Edits placed with this link, we’ll donate an item of clothing to support this mission.

lightweight fitness jackets

We’ve got a case of the fall cozies, wanting to snuggle up and pile on the layers 24/7. To encourage ourselves to make the most of these gorgeous fall weekends (and avoid early hibernation), our laid-back look needs to be on-point. Layer up in style with our favorite active and athleisure fitness jackets and see how we’re wearing them for all of our weekend adventures.

      Active Fitness Jacket

On the Run

Moisture-wicking indoor/outdoor jackets are ideal for your sweatiest pursuits. A streamlined style in sporty heathered gray is incredibly versatile—equally at home on a long run or cooling down after your workout at the gym. Look for an elevated version with extra touches like mesh ventilation, seam-sealed pockets, or contrasting zippers, then take it from basic to bold with color-blocked compression leggings and a trendy-yet-supportive bra in a bright color.

 

           Athleisure Fitness Jacket

Off the Mat

Stay snug and stylish from savasana to coffee with friends in a long, draped knit cardigan. Choose a style with elbow cut-outs or cold-shoulder details for a touch of modern edge and pair it with leggings in a seasonal print like camo or a dark fall floral. A strappy or embellished bra in a complimentary color completes this street style-approved look for any low-impact activity.

 

           Outerwear Fitness Jacket     

On the Go

For busy days running around town, be prepared for the elements in a lightweight, water-repellent anorak. We’re taking this embossed style from sporty to go-anywhere by keeping things tonal. Monochromatic mixed prints and textures are way more interesting than head-to-toe black and look super rich in fall’s sapphire, wine, and deep teal tones. Just throw on your favorite white tank or tee to make your chosen color pop.

Plaid season is officially here.

Check out this season’s must-have plaid looks, plus our tips and tricks for making them all your own.

fall wardrobe

Leaves are just beginning to crunch underfoot, so we’re taking in the beautiful fall foliage, dusting off our hot toddy recipes, and assessing our wardrobe for the weather to come. It’s time to fill in the gaps and add a few new favorites to the rotation. Full of rich textures and prints, these are the four must-have items to add to your fall wardrobe now.

Fall Wardrobe Essentials: Florals

Fall Florals

The shift from bright blossoms to gorgeously gloomy blooms actually gets us excited for the change of seasons. These dark, romantic prints are especially enchanting for flowing dresses, voluminous statement sleeves, and duster coats. For a more tailored take on the trend, wear a floral bomber or blazer with your favorite denim-and-tee combo.

 

Fall Wardrobe Essentials: Sweaters

Cozy Sweaters

We’ll be wearing neutral-colored chunky knits on repeat until spring shows its face next year, which means a variety of knits, shades, and silhouettes are essential. On our wish list: an oversized crewneck, a long boyfriend cardigan, a cropped cable knit, a trendy turtleneck with ruffle details… let’s be honest, the list goes on and on.

 

Fall Wardrobe Essentials: Suede

Suede Everything

Whether it’s an edgy jacket, sheath dress, 70’s-inspired skirt, or leggings—and don’t even get us started on bags and footwear—this super-soft favorite is popping up everywhere this fall. A suede moto jacket paired with a leather pencil skirt is modern, slightly edgy, and the combination of textures and hardware feels ultra-luxe.

 

 

Fall Wardrobe Essentials: Scarves

Oversized Scarves

Bundle up against the elements or add a colorful finishing touch to an otherwise basic ensemble—nothing says fall quite like a beautifully draped scarf. Earn extra style points with a versatile blanket scarf, which can be worn double wrapped Olsen twin-style or as a cape. You couldn’t ask for a cozier companion for your upcoming holiday travel plans.

ways to wear joggers outfit ideas

Every so often, a trend surfaces that is basically a fashion unicorn, offering both wearability and major style. Joggers are nothing short of wardrobe magic, combining the comfort of PJs in public with the best of urban styling. In fact, this long-time athleisure favorite has gained serious street cred as a fashion-forward front-runner. Check out three versatile ways to wear joggers for any occasion.

 

How to Wear Joggers: Weekend Vibes

Weekend Vibes

Joggers were made for laid-back weekends, and help ensure your downtime is still super-stylish. The key is choosing comfy pieces in luxe fabrics. Start with soft Tencel joggers, add a relaxed linen or slub cotton tee, and top with a cozy cotton plaid or chambray button-up. Grab your favorite slip-on sneakers, and you’re ready for brunch, dog-walking, and anything else your weekend has in store.

 

How to Wear Joggers: Night Out Chill

Night Out Chill

If you’re headed to happy hour or a dinner date, a polished pair of printed joggers is the ultimate choice for street-style cool. Opt for silky, flowy fabrics and a blouse with architectural details like a layered twist-front or ruffled shoulders. Throw on a blazer and you’re also office-appropriate. Heels are an absolute must to keep this ensemble polished; try a pointed pump or open-toe booties.

 

 

 How to Wear Joggers: Everyday Casual

Everyday Casual

Utility-inspired joggers are a great alternative to jeans and lend a touch of edginess, perfect for amping up your everyday style. Pick a pair with cargo details like zippered pockets and cuffs. Wear with timeless off-duty staples—think striped shirts, lightweight sweaters, and denim jackets. Complete your outfit with classic ballet flats or, for a trendier take on the look, choose furry slides.

sports bras impact level

Fall is just around the corner, and we’re beginning to dream of cooler outdoor runs and the crisp feeling of a scarf-encircled post-yoga stroll. The coming change of seasons also encourages self-reflection. We’re reassessing our fitness goals and taking a discerning look at our workout wardrobe–what’s serving us and what leaves something to be desired. Stylist Kasey knows that big intentions require the proper foundation. She shows us the best sports bras for supporting any workout.

The Best Sports Bras: High Support

High Support

Supportive and shaping, Shefit’s Ultimate Sports Bra is the holy grail of workout bras. Designed to minimize bounce during high-impact workouts, it has a completely customizable fit with its adjustable under-bust band and straps. Add compressive capris to support your muscle function, a breezy top with flyaway sides for breathability, and a lightweight moisture-wicking zip-up for the ultimate summer-to-fall cardio uniform.

 

 

The Best Sports Bras: Medium Support

Medium Support

A high-neck style like the Cyberia Bra from Shape Active offers extra coverage and support for most cup sizes. For smaller busted ladies, it has plenty of support for any activity, including running and spin. Medium-to-larger busted ladies can wear this style for workouts like interval training or yoga, where less support is needed but extra coverage is a necessity. I love a head-to-toe black ensemble, but lately, I’ve been pushing myself to work a little color into my workout gear. It’s energizing!

 

 

The Best Sports Bras: Light Support

Light Support

Wear a built-in-bra option like Wear It To Heart’s Support Tank for low impact workouts like yoga or barre. A body-skimming fit is ideal for bendy movements and inversions, so everything stays in its place. Not necessarily headed to the gym? No problem! To me, modern casual style is all about what you feel great in, so go ahead and rock that athletic street style at brunch or running errands—really, wherever. A lightweight statement jacket with edgy mesh detailing really completes the look.

summer style basics - easy summer outfits

It’s time to get back to basics. Whether the rest of your summer involves laid-back local downtime or on-the-go travel plans, comfortable style is a must. Stylist Laura shows us how to create casual, curated summer outfits with a selection of elevated, mix-and-match staples. These are her summer style basics.

Summer Style Basics: Light Wash Denim

Light Wash Denim

For summer denim, a lighter wash and distressed finish are key, but the silhouette is totally up to you! Wear with a loose, silky, feminine top with minimalist details. I love tasseled drawstrings, interesting stitching, or an unexpected pleat.

 

 

Summer Style Basics: Stretch Knit Romper

Stretch Knit Romper

This is literally the easiest outfit ever. Be sure to pick a style with a unique construction. This one has a wrapped front, keyhole back, and delicate front strap. When summer starts to wind down, top off a casual romper with your favorite denim jacket.

 

Summer Style Basics: Relaxed Fit Tee

Relaxed-Fit Tee

Finding the perfect-fitting tee is a mission of mine, and a soft, relaxed style is definitely a summer staple. Pair a subtly embellished tee– with contrasting trim, raw edges, or a unique hemline– with well-loved jeans for an effortless, put-together style.

denim trend

Our fail-safe skinny silhouette is feeling a little tired and restrictive these days. If you’re unconsciously nodding in agreement, it’s time to shake up your routine with the year’s biggest denim trend: the straight-leg crop. Whether you love your denim clean, cuffed, distressed, or featuring a step hem, this year, straight cropped denim is king.

 

Denim Trend: Casual Classic

Casual Classic

Tie up or tuck in a crisp white or subtly striped button-down, then add a bright bag, simple jewelry, and nude block heels. Keep this look intentionally casual by rolling up your sleeves and cuffing your lightly distressed denim.

 

 

Denim Trend: Femme Embroidery

Femme Embroidery

Reach for a pretty, feminine tank with embroidery, lace, or ruffled details. Complete your look with beaded turquoise jewelry, a neutral clutch, and bright tasseled heels. Our summer color picks: sunny yellow, fresh aqua, and fiery orange.

 

 

 

Denim Trend: Streetwear Edge

Streetwear Edge

Choose a destructed style to pair with a studded utility vest, striped tank, and metallic slip-on sneakers. For a street-meets-boho take on this look, pair your denim and vest with a gauzy tunic tank and strappy lug sole sandals.

 

 

Denim Trend: Modern Tomboy

Modern Tomboy

Create this easy-to-wear look with a patterned bomber, bright tee, and chunky-soled lace-up sneakers. Remember to keep your denim choice clean so it doesn’t compete with this bold print-plus-bright-color combo.

summer workout

Summer is officially here. Blazing June temps have us looking for ways to infuse a little cool into our summer workouts, whether in the gym, studio, or the great outdoors. Stylist and fitness fanatic Tatjana stepped in with a solution: adding fun pops of color to your summer workout gear.

Stylist Exclusive: Feeling Hot Hot Hot

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot

For hot yoga or a day playing beach volleyball, less is more. A sports bra and short shorts can even double as a swimsuit. No matter your shape or size, the freedom of movement possible in these shorts is so liberating. I encourage everyone to give them a try!

 

Stylist Exclusive: Party in the USA

Party in the USA

I love to up the fun factor with a brightly patterned bottom; they give me an extra boost of energy for spin class and HIIT workouts. (I call them my “party pants.”) These would also be perfect for a low-key Fourth of July celebration–festive and lawn-game-ready.

 

Stylist Exclusive: (Sir) Mix a Lot

(Sir) Mix a Lot

Versatile staples you can rely on are a necessity for days when you’re rushing out the door to your workout. Keep things simple–but still interesting–with a neutral-colored patterned set. You can mix and match the pieces with your other workout gear in every color.
