“It’s a trend. People of all ages are wearing their workout wear all day now, whether it’s leggings with a longer coat and a scarf, or someone younger wearing a cropped T-shirt with a denim jacket and some high-heeled boots. People shop for their athletic wear thinking, How can I wear this from the studio to the street?”
Cofounder of SoulCycle, Julie Rice, perfectly sums up the rise of active fashion with the above words she shared with Vogue writer Rachel Marlowe in, 'The 5 Golden Rules of Athleisure'. The combinations are endless and the ease is almost irresistible when it comes to wearing your athletic clothing from the gym to work, play, and everything in between. We believe you should never have to sacrifice fashion for comfort, and who says you can’t have both? Read our top three Golden Rule-inspired tips to ath-leisurely wear your gym gear all day long.
Amp up your accessories
Choose strong and sport-infused accessories, for a streamlined look. Try our Pipeline Top and Pulsar Legging, throw a bomber jacket over your shoulders and finish with Ray Ban mirrored sunglasses. To add some offbeat elegance to your look, swap the shades for a chic brimmed hat, (we love this one by Maison Michel), and a patent leather bag and hit the streets.
Dare to dress prepared
Equip yourself for any last minute plans when you sport performance wear outside of the studio. Pair your MICHI leggings with an oversized sheer top and jacket. Underneath, layer a sports bra or crop top (we're wearing the Radiate Bra this season), to be ready to take on a sweat session with your best workout buddy! Pack a lightweight high waisted skirt and heels to take you spontaneously into the evening.
Seek style and substance
Integrate pieces into your wardrobe that are specialized for high performance, and made with luxurious fabrics to flatter your form, feel soft on your skin, and activate moisture wicking properties as you move. Free yourself from worry about visible sweat marks, and near-invisible fabrics, and be empowered by the way athletic wear enhances versatility, promotes activity, and looks incredibly stylish before, during, and after a workout.
