Athleisure is the New Streetwear

Athleisure is all about sportswear meets streetwear. We can all agree that athleisure-wear has become quite a staple in our wardrobes lately, right?

Whether you put workout clothes on with the best intentions of working out later in the afternoon only to find yourself running errands all day, or you actually have the opportunity to hit the gym, workout-wear has become a serious essential for women on the go in South Florida. Just like anything in fashion, athleisure-wear has seasonal trends too.

Align Your Life

Lululemon

What can we say about Lululemon’s Align Pant that you probably haven’t already heard from everyone you know? In our opinion, these are the BEST leggings you can get your hands on. They’re smooth as butter, fit and flatter your curves, and grow with you not against you. If you’re someone who lives in athleisure, they’re worth every penny. Lululemon at Town Center, 6000 Glades Road Suite 1148C, Boca Raton; 561/392-6022; lululemon.com

Get Matchy-Matchy

Fabletics

If you’re looking for a sports bra and leggings combination outfit, look no further than Fabletics—this is our favorite place to get matchy-matchy. Not only do they have styles to fit any personality, they have very affordable prices to go with it. Co-CEOs, Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg, launched Fabletics with Kate Hudson after they saw a gap in the activewear marketplace: there were plenty of luxury brands, but none that offered stylish and high quality gear at an accessible price point. Starting off as an online Membership Program only, Fabletics is starting to grow their retail presence with locations in malls and shopping centers—including Town Center at Boca Raton!

Our Favorite Sneaks

Adidas Ultraboost

What is athleisure-wear without a pair of accompanying sneakers? For two girls who pride themselves on comfort and style, we have been through it all when it comes to fashionable yet sporty sneaks. We have to say that hands down, the Adidas Ultraboost shoe is our favorite. You feel like you’re walking on air when you wear them, and that’s probably all you really need to know in order to purchase them now. Added perk: these shoes are a game changer when traveling because they are so easy to slip off and on in security at the airport. Dick’s Sporting Goods, 20429 S.

Look Like You Tried, But Don’t

This one goes out to all the ladies who have every intention of working out when life just gets the best of them. Built for speed and comfort, if you will. Believe it or not, tying a long sleeve shirt around your waist and calling it a day is a trend, and a good one at that because it can easily bring together a look without trying too hard. Whether you’re decked out in head-to-toe athleisure or you’re sporting a comfortable t-shirt dress, tactile comfort is key.
