5 Essentials for Everyday Athleisure Wear

Fashionable clothing that easily translates from the gym to the city sidewalk -- it's possible! And it's even got a name. "Athleisure" clothing takes the best of style, function and comfort and delivers outfits that can be worn all day; whether you're going to the gym or not. Function, fashion and comfort go hand in hand when you embrace the athleisure wear trend. Update your wardrobe with these 5 athleisure essentials and you'll see why everyone in the fashion industry is talking about athleisure wear.

1. The Perfect Leggings or Joggers


Your first must-have for a fashionable athleisure wardrobe that can go from gym to street is an awesome pair of leggings or joggers. Plain black leggings are versatile, but with all of the fun choices available, why go plain? Women can find leggings with mesh insets, cutouts, colorful prints and side panels that bring comfy, functional leggings to a whole new level. Men and women alike love joggers for their comfy, casual appeal and stylish functionality. Both leggings and joggers look great with low-cut ankle socks and your favorite cross-training or running shoes.

 2. A Lightweight Jacket or Vest


A lightweight jacket or pullover with a unique stylish element to it -- like quilting, an asymmetrical zipper or flattering seaming -- takes your workout top to the next level in an instant. Check out brands like lucy (women's jacket pictured below), The North Face and RBX (men's jacket pictured below) for some promising options.
