Athleisure is a fusion of sportswear with luxe pieces created to fit gym and yoga settings, including everyday routines. It is functional, fashionable and comfortable, creating an experience that enhances my life.
My average day is busy and the need to keep up has become challenging in the demanding society we live in. Thus, the invention of multitasking go-to wardrobe staples is so convenient and lifesaving. I am able to leave the gym to get my nails done followed by a quick coffee catch up with friends, all while looking fashionable.
Here are 3 recommendations for great athleisure finds:
1. Cotton On : If you’re looking for affordable, quality pieces here’s your go-to-place for great durable pieces.
2. Nike : Statement runners are easy to find at Nike stores. The range of colours and designs are trendy, not to mention worth the investment.
3. Adidas : The brand is known for their graphically pleasing prints on legging, hoodies and tracksuits and the designs are quite unique.
Leggings: Cotton On
My advice here would be to try keeping your outfit trendy by adding on pieces that mix function and fashion. Remember to dress for the occasion!
