Athleisure has gradually made its way into my wardrobe. I tend to prefer to get fully dressed most workdays — i.e., skirt/blouse/jeans/dress/shoes/accessories — because it puts me in a solid headspace to greet and power through my day, but there are pockets of time and occasions where athleisure has become a welcome alternative of more formal dressing. I’m thinking specifically of slow Saturdays bathing the dog and handling chores around the house, or downtime before/after a formal event, or running out for coffee, or morning drop-off. One styling approach that has helped me feel pulled together even when in leggings is going monochromatic or tonal, i.e., wearing a similarly hued sweatshirt and leggings. Below, a few favorite moments in the athleisure category…
