If you’ve been on Instagram, blogs or the Internet at large within the past year, then you already know the athleisure trend is a major, major thing.
Throughout the months, we have seen it in various style icons like Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss, who work it both on and off the runway. And I think the answer to why they wear it so much is clear: who wouldn’t want to be comfortable and be viewed as stylish at the same time?
You know who else wants to be comfortable and be viewed as stylish at the same time? Me.
That is precisely why the other day I paired these awesome color-blocked leggings with an outfit that would have gone just has good with jeans. I threw on a cropped jean jacket, a Rebecca Minkoff purse and some (fresh) Report slip-ons to complete this workout-to-coffee look.
To successfully pull off this trend, it’s important that you pair your piece of activewear (my personal favorite are leggings) with accessories, shoes and jackets that you would also wear with a classic pair of jeans. The way this can elevate a pair of leggings meant for the gym is what this trend is all about.
The more fancy your other pieces get (like a tailored blazer or waterfall coat that ties at the waist), the more trendy you will be.
