While athletic style has been making waves for a few seasons, athleisure is clearly enjoying a moment in the spotlight. As we settle into Summer 2017, sporty chic is dominating the runways and also causing a sensation on the city sidewalks. With loose silhouettes, casual fabrics and laidback detailing completing the trend, we’ve curated a few easy ways to rock athleisure this season.
If you want to sport athleisure with a hint of femininity, look no further than Dolce Gabbana. Try slipping into a pale pink athletic T-shirt paired with matching volleyball shorts. While this outfit may instantly bring the high school gym uniform to mind, the pastel colour scheme is a reinvented take on athletic dressing. Add a pair of embellished sunglasses, black and white strappy sandals and a funky checkered handbag.
Try stepping out in a simple navy blue tank dress with a sheer mid-length hem (as spotted at Boss). Finish your style with flat sandals for a casual feel, and accessorize with a punchy yellow pleather handbag. With primary colours being a perfect look for summertime, an inspired outfit can bring you from the beach to your favourite patio.
If bright hues aren’t quite for you, turning to basic black and white is also another way to rock the athletic fashion trend. Take your cues from Dior, and slip into a fitted white sleeveless blouse with strategic side cut-outs. Style your look with cropped black leggings or form-fitting capri pants, pointed toe flats and an ultra thin collar necklace for a finishing touch.
