Influencer Bea Marin makes the athleisure trend seem so easy—her Instagram account is brimming with OOTDs you can take from the gym to the mall! Here's what we learned from scrolling through her feed, though: With just 10 key items, you can have a stylish yet comfortable, athleisure-friendly wardrobe. See how she does it below.

1. Overalls are made to be worn with pastels.

Give your overalls a second chance as an adult. Teamed with a candy-hued sweater, they'll give you a hip, comfy cool OOTD.

2. Neon should be your closet staple.

Brighten up your closet with bright pops of neon. Fluorescent hues may look a tad overwhelming at first, but you can easily incorporate them if you choose pieces that come in simple, familiar silhouettes like a cropped top or a hoodie. Balance out your look with neutral hues.

3. Bucket hats are a versatile accessory.

Loose tees paired wide-leg pants and styled with a bucket hat make for a laidback look that you can wear on a casual day out. Meanwhile, you can also dress down your LBD with the same hat—don a pair of white sneakers with it for a relaxed vibe.


4. Cargo pants easily add edge to an outfit.

If you're looking for an alternative to your denim jeans, consider cargo pants for an easy upgrade to your look. Add some chains to fully imbibe that tough-chick persona.

5. Chunky sneakers are a must-have.

Of course, what's an athleisure capsule wardrobe without a pair of chunky sneakers? White, thick-soled kicks are a good choice if you're looking for beaters that will match all your outfits.

6. Don't get rid of denim jackets just yet.

Go for oversized pieces that you can wear from summer until the cool weather rolls in.

7. Skin-tight tops are double-duty friends.

Show off your best assets with body-hugging pieces that also double as a good layering base when the weather or occasion calls for it.

8. Consider shorts your new go-to.

Be it bike shorts, denim cut-offs or athletic micro shorts, these pairs are versatile pieces you can easily dress up. See how Bea pairs hers with a structured denim jacket, or a blazer, or some tight tops.


9. Belt bags

A fanny pack is a staple in your athleisure wardrobe, too. Be sure to invest in a casual bum bag you can wear every day, and a dressier one which you can take to a night out.

10. Don't be afraid to accessorize.

Don't think athleisure wear falls short in the accessories department. In fact, gilded accessories can take sporty outfits to a whole new level while cute barrettes can inject a dainty twist to an otherwise super casual lewk.
