The great thing about sporty clothing and the “athleisure” movement is that it’s crazy comfortable. I’ve always been a fan of clothing with a bit of a sportswear influence, especially when it comes to dresses (it’s hard for me to go 100% girly). However, there’s a fine line between looking stylish and put together and looking like you’re just a slob who was too lazy to change out of her gym clothes. The trick is to mix sportswear with other items that are definitively not sporty.
For this look the athletic elements took the form of a plain white tank top from Gap and an American Apparel red nylon bomber jacket (no longer being sold, similar style here). I suppose the converse sneakers could also count if you wanted them too.
I combated looking like a gym rat by pairing these items with a pair of skinny jeans and bold glamorous accessories. The denim’s light wash keeps them casual enough to fit in with the nylon jacket, while the giant studs and oversized sunglasses elevate the whole look and help give it purpose.
What do you guys think? How do you rock the athleisure look?
