Athleisure for Winter
Now that winter is right around the corner, is it time to revamp the wardrobe. Considering that we have a lot of holiday and travel plans coming up, Athleisure is one of the best choices. Activewear has definitely seen the upward curve in recent times.
Athleisure is one crazed over option because of the comfort it offers and the ease with which it can be styled, paired and carried off. Here are some of the must-haves to create your best Athleisure style statement this winter.
While a scarf can be worn in many ways, it can be used to create an athleisure look to your pre-existing sets. You can match your scarf with jeans, sweatshirts and sneakers to create the Athleisure look. Wrap it around your neck tastefully to feel warm and cosy as you turn heads.
Layers are the key to making up your Athleisure outfit. Layer up with vests, spaghettis, jackets, shrugs and scarves. While layering up, you may want to consider colours and themes based on the occasion. You can go for monochrome with black, white and grey or choose to contrast brighter colours. You can also layer up with matching colours and choose one item of highlight. For instance, you can layer up with black and then choose a scarf or vest of red or blue colour (or your favourite colour for that matter). Here’s a small tip that could make a big difference. You can match your sneakers or loafers to the colour of that bright vest or scarf. It creates a stylish athleisure look.
Being the highlight of the winter, it is time to bring out those woollen apparel. Sweaters can be a great alternative to sweatshirts. You can throw over a sweater on your vest and inner wear to keep you warm and stylish at the same time. Try to wear contrasting stretch pants or jeans. Monochrome in the shame shades would look good too.
Athleisure is not just about clothes. Accessorize with mufflers and winter caps. Not only do they complete your athleisure look but also protect your hair from dryness and frizz.
Socks are a must wear to keep you from getting cold feet, literally. Absorbent socks not only keep your feet warm but also sweat free. If you are heading out for a long day in cold weather, it is wise to use full-length socks. If you are out to take a stroll, ankle socks serve the purpose. Matching socks with your scarf or muffler is a good option to keep your look fresh and trendy.
Some sneakers and athleisure footwear can be bought at Nike, Adidas and Reebok showrooms across the country in any city.
Pro tip: If you are going on a winter adventure to a cold place, do not forget to carry your gloves and thermal wear.
