Witnessed on off-duty fashionistas the world over , the athleisure phenomenon is still going strong and the ultimate formula keeps getting re-invented – from sport-inspired pieces to sleek wardrobe staples to stylised sneakers and fashion forward tees and ‘fashion joggers’. The major key to making it super chic and taking it completely out of sloppy ‘ I just rolled off my sofa’ territory? Strategically pair the activewear with key fashion pieces, and keep the outfit coordinated and polished. After all there’s nothing more annoying than hearing someone ask ‘Are you going to the gym?’ when you’re well, not.
Upgrade the classic tee and joggers look by pairing it with a bold handbag and statement sunnies like Veronica Odeka.
Pair a striped feminine blouse with athleisure inspired denim for a preppy feel. Add sleek, statement pieces like Toke Makinwa.
Opt for a cute color-block tracksuit with print detail to travel elegantly but comfortably like Zina Anumudu. Add some oomph with designer luggage for instant It-girl appeal.
Juxtapose feminine and sporty vibes like Idia Aisien in a monochromatic pink Adidas tracksuit and the Puma Basket Heart in pink with a feminine satin bow and a cushioned colorblock white sole.
Doreen Caven’s style pretty much encapsulates the je ne sais quoi cool of her brand Pop Caven. Emulate her look by pairing a comfortable pullover with a metallic pleated midi skirt and swap your heels for statement kicks, a messy updo and an of-the-moment pair of earrings completes the look nicely.
Creative Director of Fiu Negru, Mariângela Almeida & Amanda Du Pont make a strong case for all black athleisure coords.
Fisayo Longe pairs her KAI Collective embroidered tee with athelisure inspired high waist pants.
