3 Ways to Ace Women’s Athleisure Outfits



As its athletic aesthetics exude, these sporty basics require skill in giving them a glamorous twist.
One must know who to consciously experiment with fashion -mixing cuts and playing with proportions,
juxtaposing formal and informal elements with complete abandon. It’s about multipurpose style and a
multifunctional lifestyle. It’s about turning the trend into a platform for personal style. From flashy
tracksuits to sweats and jumpsuits with unstudied sex appeal, we explore how elevated sporty basics can
take you from business meetings to brunch dates.




Clean lines and minimalism are key to making women’s athleisure outfits look elegant, sophisticated and even
work-appropriate. And while women’s athleisure outfits focuses on comfort and less on performance, never overlook
creating a sleek silhouette. Part of the trend’s allure, anyway, is its inherent capacity to be mixed
and matched. Counterbalance a slim-line structured sweater with a relaxed pair of track pants. A side
stripe will even elongate your figure. Experiment with standout colors and prints, or layer on a bomber
jacket or leather hoodie to refresh your wardrobe this season.





Forget casual Fridays. Everyday can now call for a casual dress code. Simply pick up sporty details that
will add a contemporary touch to your everyday look. Keep in mind that women’s athleisure outfits ensembles are not
reserved for just sweaters and sweat pants. Go ahead and play up feminine colors and shapes by way of a
pink sweater paired with a modern-edgy skirt, embellished with zipper details and geometric folds.
Complete the look with your trusty pair of white sneakers, and you’re ready for brunch with the girls or
a romantic lunch date for two.





Head-to-toe sporty will require some tailored structuring in order to make the ensemble worthy of the
streets rather than the gym. Try jumpsuits with drawstring details. The sporty detail adds a playful
touch to the otherwise basic onesie. It makes a fabulous layering piece as well –throw over a blazer
during the day to achieve an urban, smart and subtly androgynous vibe at work, then slip on your white
sneakers for errands in between meetings. And when the clock strikes happy hour, switch to a leather
jacket and heels.
