Can we collectively vote to carry athleisure into 2017? Sneakers aren’t my usual go-to shoe, but I like to throw them on for lazy days. The key to athleisure is picking the right type of leggings to wear. I am and always will be chairwoman of the “leggings are not pants” committee; however, thick leggings are the exception. The ones I’m wearing are from Zara and they’re a thick yet flattering material so you can comfortably wear them with a top that doesn’t cover your bum if that’s your cup of tea. Personally, I still felt better with a longer shirt over the leggings.
Wearing my black tee from Francesca’s alone felt too casual for my personal taste. To spruce it up a bit, I added an infinity scarf from Target and threw on a fall staple--my H&M denim jacket. There’s something about wearing all black that makes me want to wear a bold lip. Really, I’m always down to wear a bold lip outside of work. With this outfit, I chose to go with a favorite red shade of mine from ColourPop’s Karrueche collaboration called Rooch. The collection isn’t available anymore, but if you missed out you can find a similar shade in ABH’s Heathers liquid lipstick.
As for where to wear casual athleisure looks like this one? Well, you can take a page from my book and wear it out during a long day of shopping! Nothing says serious shopper quite like preparing with comfortable shoes!
