Although athleisure may be commonly associated with the carefree, balmy days of summer, the sporty chic fashion trend can also be adapted for the colder temperatures. With weeks of snow and sleet ahead, it’s officially time to layer up your athletic pieces. In fact, the addition of leather and quilted fabrics makes this casual trend an entirely wearable one for Winter 2016. We’ve curated a few runway inspired ways to rock athleisure now.
For a low key Saturday, look no further than the Versace runway. Slip into a pair of high-waisted navy blue leggings accented with contrasting stripes, and a coordinating zip-up jacket. To layer your ensemble in style, turn to a fitted leather bomber jacket for a finishing touch.
As the temperature drops, trade in your fitted sheath dresses for looser, warmer silhouettes at the office. We are liking this ensemble from the Lacoste runway, which features a collared blue velour sweatshirt tucked into a matching quilted midi skirt. A drawstring waistband on the skirt adds a cool effect, while knee-high brown pleather boots seal the deal with their contrasting texture.
You may not think a hoodie is appropriate for a night out, but the Anthony Vaccarello runway begs to differ! This sleek black leather hoodie dress shows off an ample amount of leg, with a fitted white turtleneck underneath for warmth. Meanwhile, lace-up and zippered detail on the edgy hooded dress make it a surprisingly glam athleisure look for the evening hours.
