See how to build up your athleisure essentials!
1. Slide sandals
Warmer weather is just around the corner, so it’s time to let those toes see the light of day! Swap out your strappy sandals for a more sporty slide-on pair. You can go locker-room-chic with plastic slides in black and white stripes, or upgrade a bit with a neutral suede pair. Either way, these shoes are a good choice for any casual look.
2. Colorful tank
A bright tank is perfect for layering, and a great way to add a pop of color to your ensemble. Choose a breathable material so this top can work for the gym or for brunch. Kick up the sportiness by going for a racerback style.
3. Lightweight jacket
Athleisure jackets are ideal for springtime because they’re usually nice and lightweight. We love the styles that incorporate fun accents, like lots of zippers or a drawstring waist. Select one that’s waterproof to keep you covered in case of April showers!
No athleisure wardrobe would be complete without a few pairs of leggings. Invest in at least one high quality all-black pair, and then supplement with one or two in fun colors or patterns. Pro tip: always double check for opacity as you try on. No see-through, please!
5. Crewneck sweatshirt
Crewneck sweatshirts make us feel like old-school collegiate athletes, and we are really into it. This classic piece has made a comeback in a big way! Wear one with your favorite jeans for a casual weekend outfit, or pair with a flirty skirt for a cute date night look.
6. Denim jacket
A denim jacket is the epitome of laid back style. And there are literally thousands of different versions of jean jackets out there, making it easy to find one that’s perfect for you. When your styling a jean jacket, it’s all about fit. Choose a more fitted, cropped style over a dress, but go for a slouchy jacket in an oversize fit for a casual topper to throw on over your yoga gear.
7. Fashion sneakers
There are not your middle school gym shoes. Look fresh in all-white lace-up pair, or incorporate texture with slip-ons in a funky material. Fashion sneakers are a great way to incorporate athleisure into your work wardrobe.
Joggers are the sweatpants that you can officially wear outside the house. Hooray! Shop for a pair in a tailored fit, with a tapered leg that hits at the ankle. Go full Sporty Spice with joggers that have an athletic stripe down the outside of each leg.
9. Drawstring shorts
Drawstring was all over the Spring 2018 runways, and for good reason: it’s super flattering! Show off your figure with a high-waisted pair of drawstring shorts and a tucked-in shirt or, once the warm weather really hits, a cute crop top.
10. V-neck tee
V-neck tees are incredibly versatile, making them a wardrobe essential. Snag one in basic white, plus grab a couple colors to punch up different outfits. The more buttery soft, the better!
With these 10 pieces, your closet will be fully stocked with on-trend athleisure wear.
