The Athleisure trend embraces comfort and style and I’m 100% on board. Now, we can step out in trainers, leggings, loose-fitting tees and even jogging bottoms all in the name of athleisure, officially our favourite EVER trend. You don’t even need to go to the gym to pull of this look. From models to celebrities, everyone is embracing this trend. It’s all about styling up comfort classics and basics; Check out some of my top tips to go from slob to sass.

Athleisure Essentials

A bomber jacket – We all know I’m a massive fan of a bomber jacket. I got a little carried away last year and bought a couple. They are great for styling up your sport-luxe ensemble or even just chucking on over a dress on a Summer’s Day – Multi-functional! If you’re wanting a feminine and quite girly look, go for a pastel shade. I have a baby pink one which I LOVE!

Leggings or joggers – I basically live in leggings or joggers but if you invest in a branded pair that are tapered and cuffed for a close fit you’ll for sure earn brownie points in the style stakes. I’ve bought a pair recently from Ivy Park and absolutely love them.

Sports tops – Cropped tops and hoodies are perfect when paired with a pair of leggings or jogging bottoms and bomber jacket. You probably wouldn’t see me in a cropped top so if If you’re not quite ready to show off your tum, opt for a loose-fitting jersey.

Trainers – Of course a great pair of trainers would go perfectly with this trend. Ash trainers are the perfect choice, with a selection of sports-inspired styles to help you effortlessly conquer this look.

If you’re not ready to sport the whole athleisure look, maybe try working them in your outfits. Try some skinny jeans with a Nike top and trainers. The great thing about this trends is that it is so versatile. You can experiment and find a style which works for you. I would say consider and keep in mind these few golden rules.

My Golden Rules

Accessorise! – Dress up your look with a few accessories, think 90s throwback. I’m currently obsessed with gold hooped earrings at the moment. I do wear them with most looks but they would be perfect for the sports luxe trend. Alternatively, accessorise with a choker or layer up on delicate gold necklaces. Don’t go too overboard though!

Cover your bum – Whenever I’m wearing leggings, this is my number one rule. I always make sure my top covers my bum or have a shirt tied around my waist which acts as a super-cool, bottom-covering skirt. It will tie in with your look without cramping your style.

Wear a coat – When taking your look from the gym to the street, wear a jacket or a coat. I love pairing my casual look with an oversized denim jacket or like I previously said; a bomber jacket is the perfect jacket to tie your look together.

    I too am dressed more on the casual side when I’m hanging out around the house. The great thing about these is they’re causal and still stylish. I’m loving the leggings, sports tops, and the bomber jacket! I’ve been wanting one for a while now and may just have to splurge!

  4. I love the athleisure trend, although no one sees me wear it because it is what I wear when I am at home lol. I do like a bomber jacket x
