Spring x Athleisure

It seems people are turned off from athletic inspired looks because they assume it requires head to toe sportswear. I prefer, though, to think of athleisure as the art of incorporating bits and pieces of items typically associated with athletics into every day outfits. Here, five ways to rock the look this spring.

One | Sneakers, sneakers, sneakers. Update the look for spring by swapping out heavy layers for basic pieces like this loose fitting shirt dress. The leather jackets adds structure and sophistication, while still maintaining the comfortable, sporty look.

Two | Try out athletic inspired pants. These semi-fitted, pale colored joggers are effortless for spring, especially when paired with a flowy white tank.

Three | Rocking the athleisure trend doesn't mean throwing out all shoes besides your sneakers. Try sticking with some colorful heels and simple black pants, adding in a touch of the sporty with an athletic graphic T.

Four | Go subtle. Even something as classic and chic as a pencil skirt can dip into the athleisure trend when it features a varsity stripe down the front. White sneakers add an extra dose of that "inspired by athletics" feel.

Five | If you're looking for just a touch of the casual, sporty look, a baseball hat is your answer. Try out an unexpected combination, like this super feminine dress with the hat, for the perfect mix of athletic and boho.
