"Athleisure”: fashion’s term for describing our love of wearing athletic-inspired attire of leggings, tanks and sneakers outside of the gym. It seems like a no-brainer. What’s better than looking stylish without having to compromise comfort? Even if gym-to-street seems to be the new style uniform, for some of us we face a conundrum with athleisure. Yes, we love the comfort of a sneaker lifestyle, but we also have a line of what we will wear when walking out of the house (and we aren’t heading to the gym). For the days when we do want to rock our lululemon yoga pants in a non-yoga setting, enter purplemaroon's Racerback Tank and V-Neck Top.
The Racerback Tank functions well in both worlds of true athletic-wear for the gym all the way across the style spectrum to being a perfect, chic layering piece for any special occasion. This tank with its soft, tight knit and unique back details effortlessly crosses style borders. It is a perfect way to look fabulous inside and outside of the gym.
Then to raise your athleisure looks up another notch, check out purplemaroon’s silk V-Neck Top.
Whereas I might not be wearing this top while working out, slip it over of any athletic attire and Wow! I am ready to hit the world. It is the perfect layer to really spice up the leisure-side of this style trend. It solves the problem of “How do I look completely put-together and chic, even though I just want to run to the store in my leggings?”
So is athleisure only a passing trend or is it here to stay? Everyone from Alexander Wang to Beyonce are influencing this street style. But trend might be understatement. It seems like athleisure is a style that is here to stay. Who hasn’t wanted to ask, “Are you going to the gym, or do you dress that way?”
The next time you are heading out to the gym, errands, and then off to brunch with the girls…..know that purplemaroon has you covered. Pull off “athleisure” in a chic, modern way. The Racerback Tank and V-Neck Top are two perfect items to help you rock your athleisure looks. Comfort, taste, ease, elegance, and style!
