Athleisure Summer

We all have those days when comfort comes before anything. There is a way to be both comfortable and stylish in an effortless way. What am I talking about? Athleisure of course! This is the trend where sweats, work out clothes and joggers have a little added style and flair. Outfits like this don’t have to look lazy and thrown together. Why not add a little extra swag into your look when you just want things to be easy?

I don’t know about you guys, but those days when the list of things to do is endless and you have to run around everywhere can seem overwhelming. I tend to find myself wearing a simple pair of jeans and top out of convenience. That being said we’re in the full flow of summer and the last thing people want to do is wear heavy clothes. When Pink Clove reached out to me to ask if I would like to try some of their new lines I saw many items that would be perfect for those days.

The first item I saw and really wanted to try out was their Shola Stripe split trousers. The oversized, wide legged pair looked so comfortable. The monochromatic black and white could be worked into a series of outfits easily. I just had to have them. Don’t let the black put you off wearing them this time of year. They are so comfortable, especially on a hot day! These are nice to wear both out and about or around the house.

Of course when it comes to athleisure, t-shirts would be a comfortable and safe option to wear. Neutral colours are always a winner. They work at any given time of the year and can be a staple in the wardrobe which fits into many looks and outfits. This Claire tee in silver was comfortable addition to the outfit. In hindsight I should have selected a larger size for a more relaxed fit. Either way I like how it works with the overall look and feel.

On a hot and sunny day everyone needs a good pair of sunnies. Sunglasses are such an important item to own. Not only are they great for protection but they can be that amazing final piece to an outfit. This pair of Liar Lair milky lilac ones by Le Specs are so nice to wear! Sunglasses shop sent them to me and I knew I could make them work into my looks. Not only have I previously worn them in a nude colour (borrowed by Hanna) but I thought they would make a nice pair this season. Mirrored lenses are always nice to wear and can be good for concealing tired eyes.

Athleisure is a really nice fashion style. It’s nice to have some cool options to wear when you just wanna be relaxed. Summer is a difficult time of year to know what would look and feel nice. All it takes is a little creativity.

    I need clothes like this in my life! Sometimes a pair of jeans just doesn’t cut it, and I really shouldn’t spend as long as I do in my comfy pjs, lol!
