Keep your Sweatpants on! Athleisure is here to stay, but there are some rules you need to learn about first:
Guest writer: Malin Lagerqvist
It’s safe to say Athleisure has passed the stage of being a ”current trend” and become its very own category of clothing – finally! Did I hear an Amen 🙌 For Spring/Summer 2017 you want your sweatpants to wave with the wind and let the ruffles take them from cross trainer comfy to catwalk ready! Inspired by the Costa Rican model and blogger Leonora Jiménez, photographed at Trussardi during Milan Fashion Week we are giving you some easy tips on how to take your sportswear out of the yoga studio and on to the streets!
Not being too thrilled about the Frills
But seeing how Leonora took on the Athleisure trend with these chic sweatpants really got me excited about rocking the ruffles. The key here is contrasts – giving the girly ruffles a sporty edge! Then choosing a bold color instead of the usual gray, or black pants will help to step up their fashion game. These green ones from Top Shop are definitely on my wishing list!
Sneakers vs. Heels
This is not a question! Leave your sneakers in the gym bag and put on a sharp heel 👠
Last but not least, let your hair down! Grab a clutch and swap your wind runner for a furry coat and you’ll soon be running the street style tracks as well as the treadmill!
