The thing we love the most about the athleisure trend is the fact that it’s so laid-back. That’s exactly what makes it look cool. All it really requires are a few of your gymsenntials mixed in with a couple street basics, a bucket load of confidence, and some attitude. Below are the pieces you need in your closet if you want to give the trend a go.
1. It’s all about the jacket.
Whether you’re a denim kind of girl, into the cozy hoodie, or all for the kawaii-printed bomber variety, the most important factor in any athleisure look is the jacket.

2. Invest in sports bras.
These should satisfy both your sartorial and athletic needs.

3. Go for tights made with thicker material.
This will give you the compression you need sans the panty line.

4. No athleisure look would be complete without some badass kicks.
But you already knew that, right?

5. Master the art of how to mix and match.
The key to making your gymwear look street-ready is by adding a component that’s not made with spandex. You can alternate the tights with shorts or jeans, and the sports bra with a knitted crop top.
