From one sporty girl to another, I’m sure you understand just how attached we can get to our athletic wear. Thankfully, fashion designers are starting to take note and athleisure wear is becoming a growing trend! Before you hop on the bandwagon, here are the do’s and don’ts of wearing athletic wear.
The Do’s and Don’ts of Athleisure Wear
Models like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Cara Delevingne have helped pioneer the athleisure wear movement. Even celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Katie Holmes and, of course, Kate Hudson are getting in on the fun. Kate Hudson even has her own athletic wear line, Fabletics, which is the second most popular athletic wear brand next to Lululemon.
For active women, the athleisure wear trend was sent from the heavens (it’s finally socially acceptable to wear your workout clothes in public!); for women who aren’t so sporty, casually wearing athletic wear can be the perfect segue into actually working out. If the gym isn’t for you, you’ll at least be comfortable and stylish at the same time!
Before you hop on the athletic wear bandwagon, here are the do’s and don’ts of wearing this year’s hottest fashion trend.
1. Leather & Sweats
Who knew leather jackets and sweatpants looked great together? Edgy, yet stylish; we love it.
Do: Pair your sweatpants with a leather jacket. Wearing leather boots is also a Do.
Don’t: Go to any formal event wearing this ensemble. Strictly casual, y’all!
2. Track Pants & Booties
Ditch the sneakers for your favorite booties.
Do: Wear track pants with calf- or ankle-high boots, but don’t forget to wear a coat to complete the look. Gigi Hadid wore a similar outfit which you can see here.
Don’t: Try wearing pumps or heels with this outfit. It’s all about being chic and heels will not look chic!
3. Half Track
It’s time to learn the magic behind fashionable half-sets.
Do: Get your sporty zip-up or bomber jacket and wear it with denim or skinny jeans.
Don’t: Wear the full tracksuit set. It’s now a relic of the past.
4. Go Dressy
Athletic wear can now be worn on a date night!
Do: Pair your athletic jacket with a sexy blouse and short skirt. Complete the look with stunning heels and you’re all set for your hot date.
Don’t: Wear athleisure clothes that don’t fit you well. There’s no room for baggy or oversized pieces in your athleisure wardrobe.
5. White as Light
If you’re gonna wear it, make sure it’s flawless!
Do: Wear polished and ultra white kicks with a black dress. Your white sneakers will stand out.
Don’t: Wear dirty, old sneakers.
Now you’re ready to wear all of the athleisure wear outfits.
