Athleisure Clothing Pieces to Add to Your Closet
Crop tops have been the fashion staple for quite some time now. Come fall, we’ll need a warmer version of them, right!? A crop hoodie is sexy, daring and great to create effortless outfits with. Throw it over your sports bra after a workout and you’re already in the trend bandwagon. It is literally as simple as that. You can team this with a pair of high-waisted ripped jeans or even jogger pants and yoga leggings. The most daytime appropriate look would be with matching high waisted bottoms to create a co-ord set. Pair this with sneakers or booties for the transition season!
Karolina Kurkova mastered the athleisure look from head-to-toe! She made it look like she just walked off a runway with the leather slit skirt. Adding the comfy jacket to this look makes it more wearable. Add a leather piece to your active wear for another smart yet bold choice. Other good things to try with the bomber jackets are ripped jeans and leather pants.
Leggings to the rescue. Leggings in a neutral color can be teamed up with crop tops and sweaters. Throw on a long buttonless jacket or coat for instant style. Heels or platforms both work with this look.
This one is bit more on the tomboy side and Riri sure did it right. Who would have thought someone could teach us to pair basketball shorts with heels? Pick a knee-length black pair or one that falls just below the knee. Pair it with a crop top, jacket or hoodie with either heels or white sneakers! Accessorizing is key here, go in for some fun trendy pieces like chain link necklaces, chokers or a single statement earring.
If pairing athleisure pieces with ready-to-wear fashion gets too tricky, you can always try co-ord sets. You cannot go wrong with this trend. Experiment with your hair and shoes to make a statement. For a casual daytime look, wear a top knot half up half down hairstyle. or try a top bun.
