Athleisure wear to my rescue. These are crazy times and because of the devastating pandemic many of us are still home bound. If you’re still working from home and you’re looking to combine home life and work life together then you need to think athleisure wear. In fact the trend “working from home” is up 170% and “work from home outfit ideas” is also up 82% on Pinterest.
Even before COVID-19 our lives were more hectic than ever before so finding comfortable, practical, yet stylish clothes that you can wear all day long are in demand.
I have been wearing this athleisure wear fashion trend for some time now without realizing it. Hey I’m from Vancouver, the birthplace of Lululemon and its fanatical fan base. First, I love comfort and I am busy so when I’m doing my errands this is the style I wear. When I work-out or if I have to go out and meet a friend for a quick matcha or do an errand I slap on a nice sweater or jacket, I got my Louis Vuitton bag, spritz on my Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist and we’re ready to go. I also work from home so this style is perfect for me all year round!
If you checked Wikipedia here’s how they defined it. Athleisure is a fabricated style of clothing typically worn during athletic activities and in other settings, such as at the workplace, at school, or at other casual or social occasions.
The beautiful thing about athleisure is that it’s both practical, chic and completely fashionable. The combination of cool sporty styles along with ready to wear garments is more than just a trend. For me it reflects my overall healthy lifestyle. And I do believe it’s here to stay.
Step 1: You will always have the following basics and then you’ll add additional pieces to this base. These are the essentials you will always need starting with:
Step 2: Layer step 1 with one of these options.
Step 3: Color
I would go with neutral colors first like white, black, grey until you get used to putting the different outfits together and then you can add a pop of color to your outfit to make it more fun.
Be mindful of your body type. There will some pieces that will look better on you than others. For example, short jackets that sit on my waist are not flattering for me because I have a ectomorph body shape. Long coats and cardigans are more flattering for my figure.
Pick up a pair of sleek and chic sneakers and keep them clean.
Combo 1: t-shirt, denim jacket or leather jacket or bomber jacket
Combo 2: t-shirt, sweater or striped hoodie
Combo 3: tunic, hoodie, and a vest
Combo 4: tunic, sweater, and leather jacket
Combo 5: t-shirt, sweater and long wool coat
Athleisure wear is not just for going to the gym. Athleisure wear can be used for a lot of things: functional, “boring”, chic, etc. Whether you’re working out, working from home, or just lounging, athleisure is really coming in handy now as more people are spending their days indoors.
