What is Athleisure? Discover Summers Most Comfortable Trend!
Some trends can be a huge hit or miss but the Athleisure trend is definitely one I can get on-board with! Other than a very clever play on words – what exactly is Athleisure? Well to put it simply athleisure means wearing comfortable athletic clothing is now not just for the gym but for everyday wear.
Trainers have always been the most comfortable option when it comes to footwear and now thanks to celebrities like the Kardashians and brands such as Nike jumping on the Athleisure bandwagon, they have never been more stylish. If you are still unsure, here we show you our 3 favourite Athleisure footwear styles.
The Uberknit Ballerina are a great option for a more dressed up look. The stretch, knitted upper is incredibly comfortable and FitFlop have designed a cushioned pressure diffusing footbed for even more support. The classic ballerina style and bow decoration give it a smarter look ensuring you can style it with anything from dresses to trousers. Here I have styled them with my favourite lightweight spotty culottes for a work look that doesn’t compromise on comfort.
Ecco are a brand known for the quality of their shoes and are always ahead of the fashion game. The soft 7 range features stylish lace-up pumps which will become the focus of any outfit. I love to t style these trainers with a summer dress for a relaxed and cute summer look. For days where the weather may not be quite as good, they will look just as good paired with your favourite jeans and a casual T-shirt.
The most sporty of the styles, the Skechers You Pure trainers feature a sock-like knitted upper which is amazingly comfortable. You can literally just slip these shoes on and you are good to go. You could easily style with gym leggings for a relaxed look or I personally love to wear them with a pair of jeans to dress them up a little bit. Skechers are one of the best brands for comfortable and stylish shoes and this year they even have Camilla Cabello promoting their ranges.
With the heatwave continuing and this being such a warm Summer, being comfortable should be your number one priority. Why not try and style athleisure for yourself? You can shop our Full Athleisure Collection Here
