Athleisure Chic: Look cute AND comfy

Ready for more #CommunityClosetChallenge??? My guest Elia, a 30-something personal chef from NYC, asked me about the best picks for athleisure chic. There is no other style more important right now than comfy fabulousness. We may be stuck at home, but I refuse to give in to dirty pajamas everyday. Be cute for yourself, it is the most important way of staying sane. Dress up for you, doctors orders!

 

“ARE JEAN JACKETS STILL COOL?”

Always. Whether you are an athleisure junkie or just dipping your toe in the pond, this is your perfect layering piece. You should have multiple colors (and styles if you get really into it). This is the perfect topper to any look if you want to look cool and casual.

 

“HELP! MY LOOK HAS BECOME LIKE A UNIFORM.”

You are not alone. It’s tough to change up your look everyday, but there is hope! The key to switching it up without re-inventing the wheel is jewelry and shoes. Having a simple base outfit (or uniform), but changing out your “flare” everyday is the answer. Learn what silhouettes and designers are best for you first so your “uniform” fits well and flatters your figure. Then all you have to worry about is your fun factor!

 

“NO SHOW SOCKS ARE MY NEMESIS!”

Girl, the world hears you. Digging into the back of your shoe to lift up your no-show sock might be the most annoying thing in the world. And, if athleisure is your thing, no-show socks are essential to this sneaker-bound style. My favorite brands are Bombas and the Gap. Designers have yet to create the perfect pair, but these come close.
