ALEX MILL SWEATSHIRT

Fall Athleisure.

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…

RIBBED BUTTON-UP COTTON SWEATSHIRT — COORDINATE WITH MY FAVORITE $25 LEGGINGS (COMES IN TONS OF GREAT COLORS) OR LULULEMON ALIGNS AND APLS IN A SIMILAR COLOR

LOVE THIS $30 MEN’S SWEATSHIRT IN MOODY BLUE — WEAR OVERSIZED OVER LEGGINGS WITH STATEMENT SNEAKS

THIS PALE MOCHA COLOR SWEATSHIRT WITH MATCHING JOGGERS STRIKES ME AS VERY SOPHISTICATED, ESPECIALLY WITH BETH SNEAKERS

THIS EYELET TRIM SWEATSHIRT (MARKED DOWN TO $25!) IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PURCHASES FROM LAST WINTER — PAIR WITH LOEWES
