The Coolest Thing In Fashion Becomes a Model Obsession — 23 Ways to Wear It

BY Sydney Mitchell // 01.19.16

The line between style and comfortability has become blurred, thanks in part to a rise in new sporty designs, labels and collaborations involving some of our favorite luxury designers. Fitness enthusiasts are obsessed, and so are those who haven’t quite jumped on the bandwagon.

Sporty daywear — Adidas tights, ball caps, asymetric-cut crop tops, and designer tennis shoes — are no-brainer replacements for our regular weekend wear looks. They’re relaxed, functional, and, best of all, flattering.

Who doesn’t love pulling off the “started my morning with an hour workout with my trainer” look? We can thank models-of-the-moment such as Hailey Baldwin and athleisure OG Gwen Stefani for regularly showing us how it’s done. This athletic trend has erased whatever is left of the gap between fashion and practical gym-time outfits.

Here’s one look: Pair these Philipp Plein something leggings with The Upside savvy stretch-jersey sports bra. To amplify the look, add a sleek leather jacket over the sports bra and do your hair in a messy bun or ponytail.

Shop our favorites here to upgrade your athletic wear wardrobe.
