It’s a fast-paced world out there. Really, who of us has time for a break between work and working out, let alone an outfit swap? That’s where athleisure and transitional work-to-play styling comes in. Our favorite athleisure looks are those that stand on out from the crowd, that don’t look exactly identical to everyone else rolling out their yoga mats.
The technique to the perfect work-to-yoga is all about carefully selecting each piece. Find a pair of leggings that speak for themselves, with a subtle, sartorial detail like paneling or a soft design. If you crave a pair that looks as good as it flexes, Sweaty Betty is always a great go-to for leggings that blend style and function. Then once you have your prime yoga leggings, your ultimate athleisure look is halfway there.
The most basic, yet important trick to athleisure styling is to have three main pieces. On top of your leggings, layer a top and a jacket. That’s all you need. We love an oversized sweater with a large, hooded anorak, but this formula works in all ways. Try a cozy tee with a structured jacket. Then, throw on some classic canvas sneakers and throw your hair into a messy bun. Just like that, your look is complete.
