How to Style Athleisure Wear Looks + Top Brands

Garage Athleisure Wear

Athleisure wear has been a go-to for everyone – it is especially my go-to during the fall season when I am out running errands or going out for a quick lunch.

Let’s talk about the basics first…

What is Athleisure?

Athleisure is a mixture between athletic wear and leisurely wear. Basically, exactly what the word says. It allows you to be casual without feeling like you’re  total bum that day and dressing completely down. But it doesn’t make you have to put together an entire outfit for that day because you just lack the energy to even think about what you really want to wear that day And let’s be honest, it’s probably Sunday and you’re just running some errands and going to lunch with bae or your friends.

Why wear Athleisure?

There are just days when getting fully dressed up is not in the cards, but you still want to look like you’re ready for that Instagram worthy photo. I used to the girl that just threw on a pair of baggy sweatpants and my worn out moccasins because the effort of throwing on a pair of jeans and figuring out the right top to wear for that day was just too much for me. But with athleisure wear, you’re able to still look absolutely amazing and feel comfortable all day long.

How do you style Athleisure?

The best way to style this trend is to not think about it too much. Leggings are obviously a big go-to because of the comfort and the fact that they go with everything. You can find various types of leggings everywhere in every shape, style, color, etc.

And then depending on what look you are going with from there is up to you. Just like you would with any other outfit, you can pick from just a top and bottoms, a dress, a skirt, or even a pair of shorts. It’s honestly up to you.

Athleisure accessories even help to make the look more athletic, such as a baseball cap, a headband, or a pair of casual sunglasses. It also goes the other way around. If you want to make your athletic apparel look more “dressy” then just add on a dressier piece such as a trench coat over your sweatshirt and leggings combo. It’s pretty simple to style athleisure wear. The main thing is just making the style yours.
