More than ever our busy and hectic lives demand comfort and practical clothes. We need to combine function with fashion to create a chic day off look.
Athleisure has gone from a trend to a movement. When my style crush Christine Centenera launched her brand WARDROBE NYC with total sweats the world took note. The rise of the uber cool PE Nation and forever my muse Jodhi Meares. The upside. Athleisure is here and I want to help you to throw it together. You will be grateful for the comfort and cool you will enjoy.
Many of my clients have hit menopause and struggling with not only fashion but with a change in body size. They are no longer wanting to run and sweat like their former selves. For me, I combine yoga @powerlivingadelaide and do a weekly class with a woman who is an expert on creating a strong woman's body,Christine Vandenberg (@christine_vandenberg, she is Adelaide’s version of Tracy Anderson. You only need to join one of her classes to see the result of the many women she trains. She is an expert in the field and equally rocks the athleisure class in class out.
Now, with the increase of people working from home due to Covid-19 athleisure styles are booming. Loungewear, leggings and sweatpants are quickly replacing work out wear as people lean to more comfortable styles they can everything in - from work, to work out to lounging around home. My top brands are:
- LuLu Lemon
- Alo Yoga
- PE Nation
- The Upside
While I still rely on leggings for a yoga class or coffee run, it occurred to me recently that fashion girls aren’t wearing this athleisure staple as much…. the tracksuit bottom is eclipsing the legging. Much like the suiting trends this year… where bigger proportions have been winning out over body skimming shapes. - athleisure has been growing more relaxed and pyjama like with jogger silhouette replacing formfitting leggings. So what are the best ways to wear sweat pant outfits? Taking some notes from fashion insiders, there are plenty of choices. Blazers, trenches, longline coats.
Here are some chic ways to wear the sweatpant.
