This is a post from Claire, my regular (and only) guest writer, who always informs us about the latest trends!

From supermodel divas such as the Hadid sisters, all the way to the fitness models boasting their bodies on Instagram, the world has officially become obsessed with infusing their wardrobe with sporty items. This may reflect a more health-oriented mindset, but in terms of fashion, we have come a long way to find and create stylish, yet comfortable pieces that perfectly blend the idea of haute couture with the streets.

If you’re still wondering how on Earth you, a mere mortal, can include these sassy novelties into your look, read on to find your own best sporty picks of the bunch and play with some new outfit combos!

Accentuate your figureathleisure trendsource

The form-fitting trend sure has a long history in fashion. We’ve all worn the timeless LBD and the fine-tailored power suit on occasion, but when it comes to athleisure, there are more ways than this one to make your curves pop. From massive, oversized hoodies we love so much, all the way to those sleek tights and leggings, you can bring out your best features both inside and outside the squat rack.

Almost no celebrity or supermodel can go a day without putting on a pair of silhouette-emphasizing leggings such as those from Eddie Bauer, some high-waisted, others low-cut. Then there are those crop tops that let your belly button enjoy some hard-earned freedom, and why not show some skin in this sunny weather?

Try some pastelsathleisure trend

While black is still a favorite among many fashionistas, and a very safe hue to stay devoted to when you start wearing athleisure, don’t fear the lovely array of pastels you can also wear. They are perfectly creamy for summer and spring, and delightfully bright to cheer up your autumn and winter.

You cannot go wrong with soft pink and baby blue, but some interesting greens and lavender are more than welcome in your wardrobe. On the other hand, bolder looks can be elevated with some color-blocking – try a single prominent shade such as bright red to bring out your crisp white look.

If there’s anything athleisure loves most, that would be simple, clean white sneakers you can wear with practically anything, and feel like you’re walking on clouds. Consider them a staple of this style, and an absolute must-have for your daily errand-running, as well as that coffee with your best friends. You can pick a simple, white pair, or something more colorful for those black leggings and monochrome tops.

What matters most is to go for durable, high-quality sneakers such as Adidas shoes which have been considered a favorite for decades among athletes and amateur sport-enthusiasts alike. They are easy to match with all of your casual wear, and they come in versatile shapes, with fun textures, and accent shades to mix up your daily look.

Whether you’re still transitioning from your own formal look into street-friendly athleisure or you’re trying to bring more elegance into your casual, details are the proof that less can truly be more! Pick according to the occasion and try to add a touch of purpose to the items you select. For example, a single tote can bring a note of sophistication to an otherwise relaxed pair of ripped jeans, while a pair of aviator shades is more than enough to add a touch of sass to your look.

The same can be done with a single powerful ring or a chunky necklace, so you don’t have to pile up all your jewels in a single go in order to be able to elevate a sporty outfit. On the contrary, one prominent and authentic piece will go a long way in redefining your pick of clothes, making your evening look only a few right baubles and the right pair of heels away.

Try funky cutsathleisure trend

Color and accessories are not your only weapons in creating a unique athleisure approach. In fact, even if the only thing you vary in your wardrobe is the pattern (or the texture or the shape) of your garments, they’ll suddenly gain a whole new value. It gives you so much space to play and experiment with different fabrics, as for instance, velvet has found its way onto the fashion scene once more as a favorite.

Asymmetry is a great way to introduce diversity, as single-shoulder, off-shoulder, and garments of different lengths are a top choice for athleisure fans, and the same effect can be achieved with curious patterns such as stripes.

As soon as you put on your comfy sneakers and try the first pair of leggings, you’ll realize that the hype around athleisure is so much more than a passing fad – and in all likelihood, you won’t look back!
