There’s something about a hoodie and shorts that gives me all the cozy feels. Our lives are busier than ever, so feeling cozy and confident in your fall fashion is a must. But being comfortable doesn’t have to mean sloppy or frumpy.
Fall Fashion Athleisure
Retailers and designers have boarded the bandwagon for this trend, making it affordable and accessible. The key to fall fashion, especially when it comes to athleisure, is to make it effortless. Activewear clothing technology has really improved over the past few years, and you can pick so many different styles and materials ranging from polyester to cotton to luon. These improvements make it easier than ever to have comfortable, versatile clothes whether you’re a customer at a designer boutique or a big chain store.
The goal is to be able to go to your wardrobe and pull pieces that can take you from sweat to street. I’ve included 5 essentials you can pick up today below.
Accentuating the waist or lower body area can cause anxiety for many women. My tip is to go for a dark neutral for your tights or leggings. Blacks, navy blues, and even camo prints go with virtually anything and can easily be worn with sneakers and ankle booties.
Longer Sports Bra or Bra Tank:
These are fantastic for maximum support from running to yoga. They provide maximum coverage and can be worn alone for the sweat portion of your day. Post workout, these bras make for the perfect makeshift cami. Rock them under a shawl, hoodie, or tunic for an on-trend vibe.
Long Sleeve Top:
I keep items like this in my bag at the ready. A fresh top is ideal for post cardio coffee dates, grocery shopping, or potentially even workwear. Choose a solid neutral like a gray, camel, or black option. Grabbing one with cut out details on the arms or back create a flirty and fun silhouette, not to mention it’s freeing. They pair nicely with those patterned leggings and provide a pulled together outfit look.
Carry All Tote:
No great look is complete without a great bag. I’m a huge fan of a multi-pocket tote. With compartments for everything, you can stash a few of your favorite beauty essentials and a water for a quick after gym refresh.
Sneakers have always been a staple for me and now more apparel companies are getting creative with street style. A light trainer is ideal for those strength training sessions and will easily transition you to the rest of your day.
