How to Wear Athleisure for Summer

Casual & Comfy for Summer?

I think, yes! I am deciding to keep the cozy vibes all summer long. Since we have all been in quarantine for the first half of 2020, we are used to being in no-fuss outfits that keep us casual and comfortable. 

Even though restaurants and stores are opening back up, there is no reason to ditch your sports bra and sneakers if you don't want to. 

Athleisure combines comfort and practicality and now, it is acceptable to wear performance clothing to brunch and not just the gym or around the house.  

So how can you achieve a chic and functional look without looking frumpy? 

It's simple: Accessories, Layering, Fit and a fresh face are all you need to pull the look together. 

Start building your outfit with well fitting pieces as your base. If the gym wear you thrown on looks, well... thrown on, it will make your outfit look less tailored. Selecting pieces that compliment your body type is key in making this style work. 

Layer Up
Grab a short jacket to throw on over your outfit on a cool night. Tying the jacket around your waist can nice dimension to your look. 

Bold statement jewelry, an over-the-shoulder bag and shades are all you need to elevate your look. Wearing shades is always a simple method to add mystique to any outfit - adding to athletic wear is no different. 

Fresh Face
My preference for this look is to have a full face of make up! #extra I know. I like the juxtaposition that having a fully beat face and a causal outfit creates. But if you prefer the no make up look, that of course, works too. Just make sure you put on your sunscreen to protect your skin. 

Do's and Don't of Wearing Athleisure

  • Do mix fabrics, like denim and leather, with high-performance sports fabrics 
  • Don't wear clothing that has holes that aren't supposed to be there
  • Don't wear Athleisure to formal events or job interviews (duh)
  • Do mesh your performance wear with your own personal style 
  • Do use layering to add depth to your look
