Hey loves! Today I am sharing how to wear a casual street style, or as some like to call it “Athleisure”. I’m so excited about this post because this is my most worn style during the week! It’s super comfy and causal, yet cute enough for me to wear to work or running errands. I have worn all of the looks included in this post over the past couple weeks in my everyday life (the reason why they are phone mirror selfies lol). But first, I am going to share 3 key tips when styling Athleisure, then link each of my outfits.
- Invest in a good pair of leggings. A good pair of leggings is a staple piece that is essential to your wardrobe. I consider a staple piece something that will easily mix and match with other pieces in your closet. Because good leggings are better quality and longer lasting, investing in a pair forces you to take good care of them. My favorite places to get them are Lululemon & Spanx! Both supply amazing leggings made to flatter your figure. Also, I love anything that makes you feel secure and sucked in yet still comfortable!
- Don’t be afraid to mix sporty & glam. A lot of people seem to struggle with the fact that you can pair sneakers with a dress, or a leather jacket with tennis shoes and work out leggings. That’s what I love about this style! You can break usual “rules” while still looking cute and trendy. So don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone a little, and mix and match pieces you don’t think you can.
- Accessorizing is KEY. Your accessories make the outfit! When styling Athleisure, you are essentially dressing up very plain and/or basic pieces. Your accessories can change your look from plain to chic using pieces such as hats, cardigans, flannels, jackets, shoes, bags, jewelry, etc. If you have basic leggings and a tank top on, throw on a ball cap, wrap a flannel around your waist, and pair it with some cute sneakers to make the look cute n’ fun as well as put together. It’s so fun to be able to switch up accessories, giving you endless outfit options, all with pieces you already own! Now that I have given you my personal tips for how to style Athleisure, I am going to show you different outfits I have put together along with links to everything!
I put this outfit together to wear on the plane to NYC! Athleisure is the perfect travel look because you are comfortable but also cute!
This outfit is a typical work outfit for me. These faux leather leggings by spanx are so flattering. I highly recommend that everyone gets them! I threw on a nike work out tank, and layered it with a cute camo jacket. Oh and these slip on shoes are my absolute new favorite for spring!
This is an outfit I threw together about 15 minutes after I got home from the gym when Blake said he wanted to meet some friends for burgers. I only had 5 minutes to get ready so I threw on a hat to help cover my sweaty pony tail, wrapped a flannel around my waist, & put on some cute sneakers! Luckily the place we were going was super casual.
Another work outfit! I love dressing down dresses because in my opinion, wearing a dress is so comfortable. I never thought I would have pair converse with a dress… But when done right, it can look so cute!
