When fashion falls for sports a.k.a Athleisure
Posted on 17 August 2016
Once upon a time there was "Casual Friday." Now, it's more like casual 24/7. In cities and suburbs coast-to-coast, for both men and women, you see it's not just on the street but in offices. ‘’Athleisure’’ has created a buzz in the fashion world, one of those made-up terms that are so ridiculously nonsensical as to be perfectly descriptive. But what is athleisure? Clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as during work, casual or social occasions. Now, it doesn’t really matter if you play sports or not, if you’re fit as a fiddle or your hobbies involve sitting down and chilling out with friends. It’s totally an alternative way of styling your sportswear into a fashion wear. Here’s a breakdown of what are the key pieces you need when it comes to working casual sportswear into your wardrobe: Sweatshirt Forget heavy sweatshirt that you own, think lightweight fabric, mesh panel and slim-fit sweatshirt in a high-tech fabric. This will give a new dimension to your athletic outfit. You can pair them with joggers or event tailored pants. Check out these number of sweatshirts that can be your new buy.
Joggers Athleisure joggers can be featured in many fits and fabrics. Either you choose a well tailored fitted joggers or everyday tapered joggers, it will definitely be the vital part of the trend. If you love experimenting, try different color panel joggers for a vibrant look. Check out these joggers and see which one is you.
Running trainers If athleisure is the reason you're hitting the gym again, you might need a pair of good running trainers. Choose a pair that will not only help you in your sweaty gym training, but you can wear it as everyday wear. Look out for the comfort and performance before choosing your running trainers.
Hoodies They are the major add-ons to your athleisure for multiple reasons. A. Hoodies will protect your precious hair from the wind, rain or any obstruction that comes in between. B. They are also a great way to structure your layering, with a thin tech-material hoody nicely dovetailing with a hoodless jacket worn over the top/vest C. They give a really nice macho look
