Tips to Rock the Athleisure Trend

Top, Pants, Shoes and Bagpack from Adidas
 Gone are the days when you can only wear your "athleisure" clothing to the gym or to jogging/running ovals. These days, you see people wear track pants or dry fit shirts to almost anywhere!

Athleisure refers to “casual clothing designed to be worn both for exercising and for general use.” Along with the popularity of sports brands like Adidas and Nike and them releasing functional yet fashionable pieces, wearing athleisure has become a trend that's here to stay. 

So how do you style these pieces anyway? Here's some tips that might help:
  • Pair athleisure pieces with fashion pieces. For instance, you can pair a body hugging sports top (like the one I'm wearing) with jeans. You can also use your yoga leggings with a long top. Adding a blazer and white sneakers will make it look more polished. 
  • Use Sneakers or Running Shoes as your go-to footwear. I do this a lot actually. Pairing rubber shoes with dresses and even ankle pants can be a life saver for activities that require a lot of walking - like when shopping or sight-seeing/touring.
  • Don't go overboard with color. I know color can bring life to any outfit but with the athleisure trend, it's best to stick with colors that complement each other. Most of the pieces I own are in black, white and blue. If you want to inject color, you can do it but limit to one piece at a time. 
  • Invest in high quality pieces. If you're planning to maintain this style, you'll have to invest in items that will last longer. Aside from that, you'll have to learn proper care instructions when doing the laundry. 
You might have already been doing this trend without knowing it. Personally, I love the trend since I am huge sucker for the Adidas brand and have started to collect track suits/pants, running shoes and even tops. Nothing really beats comfort while being stylish at the same time. 

How about you? Which brands do you prefer and have you tried the trend? Comment away!
