Athleisure 101 – Muted Colours

I have never featured so much grey on my blog or instagram  (@ijaykheavens ) until now . You may have noticed that throughout the Athleisure series I have stuck to muted/neutral colours such as blacks, greys and navy. This gives great flexibility when mixing styles .

From time to time I have inserted pops of colour through my lipstick 💄, trainers etc.

Here am wearing a colourblock sweatshirt.
These are huge this season and would go perfectly with a pair of jeans or a skirt.

Athleisure 101- Hello slim fit joggers

Jeans are so over rated and am always thankful when I find an alternative. My jeans are having a well deserved rest as I am having so much fun with my Athleisure wear.

Who would have thought it …

joggers and heels

I absolutely love the fit, feel and fab look of these brushed joggers from Topshop. By far the best Tall joggers on the high street at the moment.
So so comfortable, I just can’t get over it.

The fact that you can dress your joggers up or down makes it the perfect versatile peice. If your like me and like to get your monies worth from each item of clothing you buy, this could be a good one.🙊

Athleisure 101 – Be on trend!

Guys there are trends and there are teends.This is a trend that I can assure you is not going anywhere anytime soon… so the sooner you jump on board… the better #teamathleisure.

Ladies keep your Athleisure game in fleek.

At the moment mesh panel are on fire. This are perfect for adding a little sexiness, yet it help with ventilation when your doing all that working out, walking or lunching.

I would say move away from the spandex legging but YAASSSSS to great prints and patterned leggings.

Bomber Jacket are quickly becoming everyone’s must have. They are great for these “quick throw something one moment”.
Equally the can can be dresses up for luxe sports looks.

Athleisure 101 – Why you need a maxi coat

As we continue with this ultimate Comfortable yet Fashionable trend.
Am hearing you say …Well how do I pull off wearing my yoga cropped top out to work or to lunch. Well… I can almost assure you that your local restaurant may not turn away given the austere times.

It probably would not be totally appropriate to wear a bralet to a corporate job either.
BUT… this is were that Haute maxi coat comes in handy.

This is fashions greatest cover up and of course it’s keeps the chill away.

The world need not know that your donning an ASOS lounge wear!.  You keep it wrapped up, fashionable yet totally un-bothered.

Athleisure 101- Ultimate Comfy Chic

Hi Lovelies,

So you have probably heard the buzz word “Athleisure”.  Well, if you have not, your in the right place; and if you have, your still in the right place.

Over the next few days I will be breaking down this fashion trend with tips on how to style it.  
Agreed! This look is not for everyone. However, if you have ever wondered how to pull this look off, I will be sharing tips to achieving this great WORK, to LUNCH, to GYM , TO HIM Look.

The trick is to not over think things. Feel free to team your sports wear with smart casual peices as I have done here.

Suprise suprise it works. In all honestly this did seem a little strange at first, but I did not feel out of place. Most importantly I was warm and Comfortable.

My only challenge with this whole Athleisure thing is that Tall sports wear is extremely limited. There was probably about 4 retailers in the UK with a tall sports wear range.
I was able to bag this great top and bottom fem Newlook for under £20.

image

I can definitely see myself wearing this outfit from a light workout to catch up coffee.
What’s your take on Athleisure? I do not see this trend dying out as sports and fits is rapidly becoming part and parcel of everyday life.
