Think of athleisure wear as more of a street-style look: activewear that looks more polished and put-together rather than a typical t-shirt and jogging shorts. If you want to incorporate pieces into your wardrobe, here’s a great starting point with the essentials.
· Comfort is key. When shopping for athleisure, it’s all about finding fits and materials that feel comfortable and flattering for your body. One easy tip is to look for pieces that can be worn from the gym to errands out (or even to the office in some cases!).
· Balance out proportions. Fitted garments look more polished. Instead of baggy attire, shop for pieces that balance out and complement other pieces; for example, a fitted shirt with loose pants or fitted pants with a loose-fitting button-down shirt.
· Minimalism enhances style. With men’s athleisurewear, simple and minimalist is better. Shop for garments in neutral colors and simple construction – this makes it much easier to pair new pieces with items already in your closet.
· Show off with brands. Showcase some of the top brands in athleisure by wearing t-shirts, hats, or pullovers with a brand’s logo. Keep things fresh and on-trend by balancing logos with simple and classic pieces where you can.
Grab a backpack. Since you’re on-the-go, store all your must-haves in a minimalist-style backpack or cross-body bag.
