Mastering the Athleisure Trend

The 90s tracksuit is something we just can’t ever seem to get rid off, and it must be for a reason; it’s here to stay. The funnel neck is one of the main ‘throwback’ looks if you wanna go back to a time when you wore the tracksuit as part of your day-to-day wear and not just for exercise of any type, but that way to wear the tracksuit is coming back to life and who couldn’t love the mix of athletic wear and leisure wear to create the trend ‘athleisure’.

To those who threw their tracksuits away thinking that they would never really ever come back into style well you are going to regret it, as they really are on the verge of a major comeback for AW17. For anyone who is into fashion you will know that whenever a trend comes around it’s usually recycled from a different year and is slightly remastered in a way that makes it different from before.

Seen on the runways of Gucci and Astrid Anderson it’s no denying that the look has now transformed into a much more sleek, high end trend whereby designers are styling them with smart trousers, over shirts and polo shirts and with smart shoes.

The trend isn’t just worn by men though and is actually supported by many of the fashion socialite such as Patricia Manfield and Alexandra Spencer who have shown their love for a trend that couldn’t be any more comfy and casual if it tried. Also seen on  the runways of Chloe, Gucci and Louis Vuitton it’s clear that it’s a highly approved look.

For women the look is different, whether you want to go with a logo or no logo; a drawstring trouser can go a long way and take you from what could be a sit at home and lounge around piece to something you pair with heels and a shirt to transform and work it into your everyday outfits…maybe even to work. Throwing on a leather jacket over a hoodie can take you away from plain and simple and turn your outfit into the edgy ensemble it so utterly needs.
