THE STYLE EDIT – THE RISE OF ATHLEISURE
Athleisure: casual, comfortable clothing designed to be suitable for both exercise and everyday wear. Here are a few rules to nail the athleisure-wearing look.
Take your sportswear to the street by adding a loose-fitting jumper or bomber jacket.
Best foot forward
Comfort is key when choosing a pair of sneakers and it’s worthwhile to splurge and buy a pair that will look chic and last a few seasons. A sneaker-alternative is a sports slide or the classic tennis shoe.

Mix and match
Take active wear from the gym to the weekend by mixing with your regular wardrobe. Add a denim jacket or a pair of casual drop crotch pants for the ultimate ‘casual-cool’ look. Wear a longer t-shirt or tie a denim shirt around your waist when wearing leggings to disguise any lumps or bumps.
