Athleisure Picks Wed, May 18, 2016

The incorporation of athletic and casual details into everyday silhouettes has resulted in a revolution for street wear. Think jeans updated with elasticized cuffs, t-shirts with mesh panels, or tanks as long as basketball jerseys. This contemporary style thrives on simplicity. Take a look at some of our favourite pieces!

Hoodies and joggers are the crown pieces for athleisure, given its sporty origins and comfortable fit. Keep your look clean with slimmer fits and modern details. This set of Hive Hood Sweat and Hive Sureshot Jogger from Zanerobe are updated with a cool but subtle print and contrasting elasticized bands. A t-shirt peeking through underneath separates top from bottom to add stylish dimension and avoid a full tracksuit look. 

For a less athletic but just as relaxed vibe, look to bomber jackets, such as this Wings + Horns Honeycomb Bomber, and long line t-shirts, like this Double Scoop Long Sleeve from Vitaly. A number of brands are designing jogger style jeans to keep a classic denim look, but with a cool and comfortable finish.

There’s always compromise between style and comfort!
