Athleisure Rock & Roll

Athleisure is a trend that’s been going strong the last few spring seasons, and I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon.  I feel like it started with leggings worn as casual wear for everyday use and now the trend has morphed into something much more encompassing.  Sweat pants, and especially joggers, are commonplace whether you’re working out or running to the store.  They’re even made to look “dressed-up” in a variety of prints and fabrics. Athleisure is a popular trend because, by and large, it’s a comfortable one.  Stretchy yoga pants are a better bet for brunch than your skin tight jeans.  Not to mention there’s a true convenience in heading from the gym to an appointment without a second thought.  Personally, I’m not crazy about the full-on athletic look unless I’m actually working out.  I am however on-board with adopting an athletic piece here and there to incorporate into a fabulous outfit.  Hence, this jumpsuit that I knew I had to have…

It’s from Free People’s “Movement” line and I think it’s technically meant for yoga class (LOL).  Though I knew I’d be able to style it for a different purpose.  I adore the leg wraps but when I tried it on it’s own it felt a little bare.  Given it’s spring and the weather is still breezy, I figured a faux-fur vest was the perfect addition. Because I’m so short I wear heels with pretty much everything, and that definitely perks things up.  I’ve always been a bit loud with my fashion choices, but anything too simple (i.e. minimalist) looks and feels boring.  So this is my perspective on athleisure – find a piece you love and make it your own!  The jumpsuit pictured is unfortunately sold out, but I linked a similar style below!
