What is athleisure?

Although many of you have heard of the athleisure trend, you may be confused as to what it means. Simply put, athleisure is a way of dressing that combines sportswear with ready-to-wear.

Think athletic details and sportswear fastenings paired with weekend essentials like denim or chinos.

When to wear athleisure?

Athleisure has grown in popularity over the years and is now an accepted dress code for countless occasions. Where this trend is more at home, however, is on the weekend. Whether you’re headed to lunch, drinks with your mates, a match or even a date, athleisure is a great fashion choice.

Just make sure to keep your sportswear pieces clean, neat and well-presented for a sophisticated look.

Casual trousers

Casual trousers are a great way to rock the athleisure trend. Choose between chinos, which have a streetwear look, and the more sports-inspired jogger pants to nail the look.

Chinos look great with more sporty pieces, such as bomber jackets. Joggers have a strong athletic vibe and should be paired with more ready-to-wear pieces to balance the look.

Crew neck jumper

Crew neck jumpers have long been a staple of training athletes and sports enthusiasts alike. The simple yet sporty look have been embraced on the street as part of the athleisure movement. Crew neck jumpers are both practical and comfortable. Pair one with jeans or joggers for a subtle yet stylish look.

Polo shirts

Polo shirts revolutionised sportswear. The shirt’s stylish design allowed tennis players to feel relaxed and elegant both on and off the court. Today, the timeless garment still offers those benefits, making it a great athleisure piece.

Instead of the tennis court or golf course, why not wear a polo shirt to your next breakfast meeting or night out. You can partner it with chinos or jeans for a casual look.

  • Mix sports pieces with fashion items from your weekend wardrobe.
  • Opt for a bomber jacket instead of a blazer for an athleisure touch.
  • Swap suit trousers with more casual sport styles such as joggers or chinos.
  • Make trainers your go-to shoe.
