According to Merriam-Webster, athleisure is casual clothing designed to be worn both for exercising and for general use. Athleisure has become an integral part of every fashionable girl’s wardrobe and we’re here to make sure you’re rocking it in the best way. Here are 3 different ways to pull it off, and be super comfortable while doing so.
Athletic all the way
Wear your workout clothes from head to toe, and remember to choose cute, yet basic pieces. Tiffany Diana chose a simple active look with black yoga pants and white tee that never goes out of style, while Quynh Anh decided to mix all of the hottest trends this year together in one look.
Half casual, half athletic
Wear your workout clothes but mix them with your favorite casual pieces such as a denim jacket, puffy bomber, sunglasses or leather jacket.
Wear your favorite basic outfit and pair it with one or two athletic pieces. For example: sneakers with a feminine dress, a sweatshirt with a skirt, or a hat with a feminine blouse.

If you’re just getting started on the athleisure trend, try combining 2 or 3 of the items below and you should be good to go.
Hey ladies, it’s time to re-do your wardrobe! No more looking at a closet full of clothes and saying, “I don’t have anything to wear today.” Follow these steps and start building your closet around a few basic items that can be mixed and matched and worn year-round.
Step 1: Empty your closet
Throw out everything in your wardrobe. Yes, everything. And no, not in the trash bin.
Step 2: Select all of your favorite pieces
Don’t say that you love ALL of your clothes. We all know in that big pile of clothes, we actually only wear a few of them. Choose your favorite pieces that you truly enjoy wearing, and don’t waste your closet space for clothes that you will never wear.
Step 3: Choose a color palette
In other words, choose your own style. You can go wild with bright patterns or prints, or simply go back to basics with neutral, muted colors that can be mixed and matched easily. We have a few suggestions of neutral basics below.
Step 4: Ensure you have basic pieces
Basic pieces will save you precious time when you wake up late and don’t have time to put together an outfit. Just grab random basic pieces, put on your attitude and bam! You are ready to head out the door.
Step 5: Add some interest pieces
Remember to go basic, not boring!
Step 6: Select shoes and accessorize
A white tee is a basic piece that most women own, but it won’t make your outfit basic if you know how to style it well! We’ve found the clothing and accessories you need to make it casual, chic or something in between.
With Skinny Jeans
How does one get ready in the morning in just 5 minutes and still look fashionable with a white tee? Just throw on your favorite skinny jeans and some accessories and you are ready to go.
