Athleisure

Mar 7, 2017

Athleisure has effectively swept the nation, and the rest of the world, too. How else would you explain seeing people wearing sneakers with pretty much everything on a daily basis?

It definitely took me awhile to warm up to the whole sneaker trend, but once I started exploring it within my own wardrobe, I thought it was time I styled an athleisure look for one of my models, too.

Brittany is the definition of gym rat, so with her athletic build and generally laid back style, I knew she was the perfect candidate to explore an athleisure (so apparently athleisure doesn’t follow the i before e, except after c rule and it’s bugging me) look with.

This look is comfy, casual, chic as day, totally in-trend, and still athleisure as can be.

I also wanted to bring as much femininity as I could to this look. I didn’t want to do your average sneaker look, and these Ted Baker leather sneakers did just the trick. I’ve talked about how much I love Ted Baker before, and these sneakers only increased my love. I took the color of the floral on the sneakers and made it the base color for the look, and contrasted it with a navy blue duster coat.

Duster coats are insanely lightweight, comfy, and will leave you feeling like you just stepped out of your mansion. The length of dusters also elongate your body, making you appear taller.

And I finished the look with a simple Ted Baker cross body. There’s no such thing as too much Ted Baker, right?
