How To Athleisure

I don't often get super into clothing fads but athleisure is one I can sure get behind... and I think it really speaks to my tomboy style. I'm mainly just happy that me wearing converse & sweats around town is now "cool". I promise I've been doing it my whole life. #imhipiswear
Athleisure is a trend in fashion in which clothing designed for athletic workouts at a gymnasium, sometimes termed activewear, is worn outside of the gym to go to the office or shopping or other social occasions.

For the office, for around town, and for actually going to the gym, I'm gonna teach you how to Athleisure today.

I also added a bulky necklace to class up the outfit.

I paired these sweats with a cropped T, bomber jacket & toque. beanie-athlesuire-2 Beanies, Baby Adding a toque or beanie to an outfit will make any outfit look casual & cool…. as well as hiding any type of greasy hair situation. beanie My good friend Kaitlyn here is featuring how to rock an Athleisure look for the office.
