2016 had seen Athleisurewear tip-toe its way into the mainstream donned by celebrities, followed by a quick adaption by pop culture.
The casual-meets-fitness clothing style has accelerated in popularity, enticing brands, product lines and the market to match demand.
But like all fashion, trends tend to fade, and the ideas within them eventually hit a stand-still.
Here are three ways to bring back your Athleisurewear game by adopting a fresh perspective on it.
Get your colours on point.
The colour appeal can be everything when it comes to fashion, and Athleisurewear is no different. Selecting colours that complement each other is one of the most alluring elements you can work on.
You can base your colour scheme on themes or a mood, for example, and try avoiding a monotone that saturates your entire outfit with one shade.
Dressing in two colours that contrast ideally is generally key, with the exception of a third if it’s an offset of one of the others.
Add that extra piece (even when in doubt)
Slinging on a jacket or hoodie can style up your regular Athleisurewear combinations. Adding just one extra piece, ensuring it’s in conjunction with our above colour tips, is the easiest way to make the outfit stand out.
Don’t worry too much about the weather forecast or how a jumper will suit your high-intensity workout – remember, you can always take layers off if you need to.
Besides, the whole idea of Athleisurewear is its ability to be versatile, right? It might get chilly hitting up your favourite post-workout coffee shop later on; you never know.
Effortlessness is in
Although their Athleisure products are associated with a price tag most can’t afford, celebrities have a way of making popular styles look appeasing and simple to throw together.
Adopting this attitude to your own Athleisurewear style places you comfortably in sync with the latest trend – effortlessness.
Leggings with a t-shirt and trainers could be your go-to summer set-up. Then it can be as easy as swapping for some thicker bottoms or adding a hoody or long sleeves to the mix come winter.
While the idea behind a trend is to be part of it, individuality and originality still very much rules the roost. The creative fun you can have with Athleisurewear is virtually endless now compared to its first introduction, with thousands of impressive style options available.
Jump on the bandwagon and grab yourself some in-trend threads while showing off a newfound style.
