It’s official — workout gear is definitely having a moment. Gone are the days when your spandex and yoga pants were reserved for gym use only. It Girls like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner show us how the sporty look can go from gym to street style with just a few key pieces. Whether you’re rushing to your 9 a.m. class, grabbing coffee or actually going to the gym, Valley will help you look sleek, chic and polished.
Starting From The Top
Trade in that old t-shirt for a form fitting tank or thermal. Keeping your look streamlined is key to appearing put-together. If you’re interested in showing a little skin opt for an active wear crop top.
Get Your Footing
This look is all about comfort, so sneakers are the ideal footwear to pair with your outfit. If you’re going for a true gym-inspired look, stick with a training or running shoe. This type of sneaker gives you maximum comfort while you walk around campus or work out at the gym. If you want to channel some street style vibes, pair your workout gear with a monochrome sneaker. The combination of workout attire with an atypical shoe will look effortlessly cool.
While we will always have love for our classic black leggings, there’s a new kind of leg-wear rocking this town. Sticking to the all black aesthetic, this legging design now includes sporadic mesh cutouts. The mesh panels add dimension to your silhouette, adding a little flair to your ensemble without the commitment of wearing bright colors or a funky pattern.
Over It All
With the spring season quickly approaching Valley is ready to ditch our heavy parkas for lighter jacket alternatives. Bomber jackets have been in the spotlight recently, and deservedly so. This military-esque outerwear is chic and versatile. Throw one over your t-shirt or tank top for an instantly edgy look.
Amplifying any look is easy with the right accessories. Incorporate a pop of color with these fun sunglasses or experiment with logos to make a statement. When accessorizing, pick one piece that you want to highlight and base the outfit around that. If there’s too much color or patterns going on at once, the completed look can be dizzying.
And there you have it — the formula for achieving the perfect athleisure look! This trend fits your demand for comfort and functionality, giving you the flexibility that your busy schedule calls for.
