Let’s get one thing straight, wearing activewear as everyday wear is always a good idea.
However, while most of us know how to wear athleisure to the gym, styling your cycling shorts, sports bra or crop tops for a lunch date can be a little less obvious. Well, girls, that’s where we come in.
When it comes to striking the perfect balance between fit and functionality, nobody does it quite like we do. Each of our styles promise comfort, support and style like no other, meaning you can truly make the most of each of your AYBL pieces whatever the occasion.
Discover how to turn your favourite AYBL pieces into on-trend athleisure outfits below.
1. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BASE
Start by choosing your base layer, as this will create the foundation of your outfit, and work your way outwards.
Our Training Crop Vest and Balance V2 Seamless Leggings are wardrobe essentials and are designed to provide comfort and style in equal measure. Not to mention, these leggings feature a beautifully flattering fit that will inspire confidence for whether you’re lifting in the gym or going for casual drinks with friends. It’s the best of both worlds!
2. MIX FASHION AND FUNCTION
The key to styling the athleisure trend is to find the perfect balance between fashion and function and with our everyday activewear, you can do exactly that.
One of our favourite things about athleisure is that you can mix it with your everyday wardrobe for a simple, yet chic aesthetic. Try popping on a puffer jacket or full length trench coat for a layer of luxury. Alternatively, why not elevate your look with a chunky, oversized sweater for a more relaxed, on-trend look? The possibilities are endless.
3. LAYER UP
The best athleisure outfit ideas are those that incorporate layering.
Take your outfit to the next level by slipping on a thick jumper, such as our Oversized Cropped Jumper, and a sleek, staple jacket, like our Everyday 1/2 Padded Jacket, over the top. Not only will you rack up allll the style points, it’ll take you just a matter of seconds to strip down to your co-ord when you decide to hit the gym for a full body cardio workout.
If you want to go the extra mile with your athleisure outfit, it’s important to pay attention to the finer details. Accessorising is a simple, yet sophisticated way to make your outfit look a little less workout-ready and a little more brunch-appropriate.
Pair your everyday activewear with some chunky dad-style trainers, a baseball cap and, of course, our Everyday Ankle Socks. Add a pair of sunnies, some gold hoop earrings and a ring stack for instant transformation.
So, girls, if you’re unsure how to wear athleisure, we’ve got you covered.
The secret to this staple look is quite simply to have fun with it! Don’t be afraid to experiment and don’t let some of your best pieces go to waste, simply upscale. This way, you’ll never be short of outfit choices.
