Athleisure wear isn’t going anywhere — if anything, it’s picking up steam for the year ahead. Athleisure (ath-lee-zher) is defined as casual clothing designed to be worn for both exercising and general use.
But like all good things, this trend is best pulled off at a happy medium.
If you want to look chic in your yoga pants, the trick is to mix slouchy cashmere pants with a cropped jacket; tuck a silky shirt into cropped yoga leggings outside of the yoga studio; or slip into a pair of sneakers paired with a gear-inspired dress when headed out on a date.
If you want inspiration, look to athleisure wear pros like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and, Gwen Stefani. Let’s take a quick look at six athleisure wear outfits that we highly recommend.
Popular Athleisure Wear Outfits
Wear this outfit as a casual weekend look for grocery shopping or running chores – cool, comfy and oh-so-chic! Pick a long sweatshirt dress that is uber comfy and pair it with white canvas shoes and a cute crossbody bag. The stylish sunnies are a crucial element for this casual yet chic look.
Lunch With The Girls
When you’re having fun with your girlfriends on a typical day out, it’s best to have something comfortable on.

Pair a semi see-through shirt with comfy gym pants and add some color with a bright sling bag. To keep the look from ‘I just ran out of the gym’ vibe, forgo sneakers for some on-trend smoking slippers instead.
For Sunday Brunch
Want to treat yourself to a Sunday Brunch so you can skip breakfast and instead, stuff yourself with delicacies, without compromising on looks. A loose sweatshirt dress paired with sneakers is perfectly comfortable. The added moto jacket amps up the look, so you don’t feel under-dressed even at the swankiest of breakfast joints in town.

A chambray shirt paired with an A-line skirt and sneakers will up the comfort game.
If you don’t have the liberty to dress up that casually at work, here’s another option. A turtleneck sweatshirt, paired with pleated jogger pants and matching jacket will work any day. You can pair this attire with some metallic sneakers to add the glamour quotient to your look.
