Fashion has come a long way – once upon a time super stylist and Vogue Australia editor Christine Centenera was an anomaly, with her norm core meets glamour aesthetic – her love for tracksuit bottoms paired with heels is very well documented.

Now, gym gear aka athleisure is acceptable for everything from the boardroom (see Ann Taylor|Lux Wear), to the red carpet (see Tracee Ellis Ross‘ stellar turn in Valentino at the Marie Claire ImageMakers awards).

Toke Makinwa is well known for her red-carpet glam, but her off-duty looks are just as cool. See how one of our favourite fashionistas on the continent gives us a masterclass on the comfort and ease of athleisure.

Keep it simple in a classic tracksuit, sparkly sunnies and a half up-do.

Take a styling note from Toke Makinwa, and go for gold with a metallic hoodie, like her adidasOriginals St Petersburg City Trefoil.

Style your zip up with on-trend lucite pumps and an of-the-moment bum bag, like  Toke’s Gucci one

How do you feel about athleisure? Would you rock it?
