Oh, how we wish we could wear sweatpants to the office on a daily basis. Wait, we might be able to pull this off with athleisure! To create the look, you just need athletic-inspired pieces—think trouser style joggers, sporty sneakers, lace-up tops and bomber jackets.
Read on for more tips on wearing athleisure to work:
Swap heels for sneakers
The trick to making athleisure work at the office is to don a fresh pair—so don’t bring your hiking or go-to running shoes for a spin at the 9-to-5. If you office is more buttoned-up, go for a low-profile sneaker in a more neutral tone like gray, tan or crisp white. If your office is on the creative and casual side, try a monochromatic look with a pair of bright, patterned sneakers.
Jump into a jumpsuit
When Monday morning rolls around and you’re not quite ready for the week, try a sleek jumpsuit for the office. This nod to athleisure is a one-piece wonder that you can wear all day at the desk and then for a happy hour event. If you want to look more meeting ready, layer on a contrasting blazer and a watch.
Go for gold with sleek knits
If you rely on a classic button-up as your workwear staple, swap it in for a knit top like a tightly woven three-quarter sleeve sweater or a sleeveless sweater, otherwise known as a shell. Plus, if you’re a fan of hitting up the gym, this is your chance to show off your hard work!
