Are you struggling with the athleisure trend? Sure, you have plenty of yoga pants and workout leggings. But, putting activewear pieces together to style a casual outfit is a bit different from going to the gym.
Here, I’ll share one of my favorite athleisure outfits that is comfortable, put-together, and perfect for a casual/weekend outing.
Workout Leggings, Beyond the Gym
I’ve worn some variation of this athleisure outfit all winter, from out running errands to any sort of super-casual outing or get-together. So, I thought it would be ideal to wear for Superbowl Sunday.
Every year we go to a Superbowl party at the home of some close friends of ours, and we really look forward to the evening – it’s always tremendous fun. It’s great to be able to hang out for a few hours and catch up while watching the game, and of course, the commercials and half-time show!
What could be better than stretchy workout leggings and a comfortable top for an easy, fun-filled night with friends!
How to Style an Athleisure Trend Outfit
The most important part of this outfit is the leggings. Not all leggings are created equal. Wearing a well-made pair of leggings that fit well in all the right places makes all the difference in the world! The right leggings will move with you, and won’t bunch or slip or ride up. And most important, the right pair of leggings will be slimming!
These workout leggings are my absolute favorite. I have the crops for working out, and I can tell you they are awesome! I like wearing them so much, this winter I purchased a couple of pairs in full-length (grey and black) specifically for casual-wear.
The high waistband flattens your tummy and doesn’t allow for any muffin-top action. The tights are thick, stretchy, and overall good quality. And yes, they are extremely comfortable.
This racerback tank top is an absolute must-have for your closet! It comes in both white and black, so of course I had to buy both. Trust me, you will want both too.
Some may think it’s a tad expensive for a tank top, but you will get lots of wear from this basic piece. The tank is excellent quality. It’s fairly thick and super-soft, and the long length is perfection. It’s the ultimate layering piece!
Over the tank I am wearing a grey dolman-sleeve top with hi-low hem (similar).
These sneakers are so fashionable and comfortable. I love the marled black texture on the body of this shoe. It’s really a good look, and more stylish than flat black, I think. And since I am crazy about the look of platform shoes, these soles do not disappoint!
In the reviews some folks felt that this style ran small, but I took my regular size 9 with no problem.
I am wearing these sunglasses, which unfortunately are sold out (I will provide similar styles at the end of the post). These are awesome, because they’re so sporty yet a little dressy at the same time.
I love the contrast of the white, and the gold accents. And, you know I like a little bit of bling – that embellished GG logo adds the perfect touch of glam!
3 Steps to the Perfect Athleisure Outfit
Putting it All Together
Follow these three key tips to style an athleisure trend outfit that can go from running errands to a casual outing:
- Wear well-made pieces like quality workout leggings and activewear tops that are both comfortable and flattering.
- Accent the look with simple jewelry that ties the outfit together. Simple jewelry will dress up the outfit just enough, so it doesn’t look like you’re headed to the gym.
- Accessorize with higher-end shoes, handbag, and sunglasses to reinforce the casual athleisure look and further differentiate the outfit from “gym” clothing.
