The latest KT fall active wear collection has blurred the lines between locker room and your everyday wardrobe, to create something you can wear comfortably and fashionably anywhere
Follow star stylist and Elle blogger Caroline Skjelbred´s five golden rules for working your active wear into fashion style.
The athleisure trend is a perfect way of keeping comfortable and trendy in a hectic lifestyle. But there is a small catch: While you'll feel relaxed in such pieces, you risk looking sloppy. So, don´t just throw on an old tee and sweat pants. Invest in quality pieces that mix function and fashion. This way, you can go straight from class to the gym while still looking sharp!
A cool way of working the athleisure trend into your everyday wardrobe is to mix more masculine pieces with feminine ones. Throw on a bomber over your favourite dress, or combine an oversized b-friend shirt with a skirt. Leave your heels at home, and go for a pair of sporty, clean sneakers – comfy and cool!
Gold hoop earrings or a thin chain necklace, will glam up a sporty look. Nineties inspiration at its finest! A cap adds a cool touch to your look, and don’t forget your favourite bag! Classy chic and sporty.
You don´t need to abandon your signature style to follow this trend. Investing in a sporty, urban parka jacket will give any outfit an athleisure expression. Tighten the waistband of your jacket to enhance your silhouette and create a more sophisticated look, or add a hoodie inside to go all in.
