With a new year in full swing, many of us are incorporating new workout routines. To keep motivated, some new gear can be helpful. Pieces that you can take from gym to the streets is often the best way to go so you get the most out of your wear. Here are some of the best athleisure pieces to add to your closet to keep you stylish this year!
To start your athleisure wardrobe, shop for some staple bottoms that you can easily mix and match. Some good options include leggings, joggers, sweatpants and shorts. To get the most use out of these pieces stick to solid colors that are easy to pair, especially black. They tend to be the most flattering, too. Definitely consider the weather and adding in pieces of varying thickness to keep you warm when wearing out and about.
When it comes to tops for your athleisure look, you will want a variety of sports bras, tanks, tees, long sleeve shirts, sweatshirts and fleeces. Again, sticking to solid, neutral colors is your best bet to get the most use out of your pieces. Don’t forget some great outerwear and considering items that are easy to layer as well.
Some good kicks are a necessity to your athleisure style. Keep with the approach of going neutral to make the most of your sneakers. Also, always go with something that is comfortable, gives you good support and that are easy to take on and off. Often having a pair that you workout in and another you hit the streets in can be a good option. Always be sure to read descriptions and reviews so you pick what’s best for your lifestyle.
Like any other outfit, adding in accessories will complete your athleisure look. A trendy option is a belt bag to keep you handsfree. A good baseball cap or beanie, weather permitting, add a perfect touch as well. If hats aren’t your thing, invest in some hair accessories like soft fabric elastics and headbands. Keep your jewelry minimal with stud earrings and dainty necklaces. A great pair of earphones is never a bad idea either!
Here’s to sweating and running around town in style this year!
