The Fashionista’s Guide to Athleisure

overland

How important is comfort for you when you dress every morning? 

Before, you had to choose between fashion and function. Now, there’s athleisure.

This word is a portmanteau of the words athletic and leisure, and has officially been added to the dictionary to represent casual clothes designed for both exercising and general, everyday wear.

For those working from home, athleisure has become a way of life. We’ve forsaken formal officewear for what not only feels good and comfortable, but also looks trendy and fashionable. And that is how athleisure is also the new streetwear. Whether you’re walking the dog, doing a grocery run, or just getting things done on the daily – you can do it while enjoying the variety of life. Cable & Co. has always strived to offer a solution for every occasion and lifestyle. 

Here are some of the staples for your athleisure wardrobe as we phase out the traditional look in favour of the future of fashion:

How to make it work

Nail the look by mixing sporty pieces with your regular wardrobe.

  • G.H. Bass brogue sneakers with a linen pants and simple t-shirt
  • Joggers with a bomber jacket
  • Cat Intruders with a feminine skirt or dress
  • Swimming shorts with a Hawaiian shirt and Sebago boat shoes
  • The colourful Merrell Nova paired with your most comfortable jeans and sweatshirt 

Feel free to accessorise how you usually would, pairing earrings, timepieces, sunglasses, scarves and more as you see fit. Get creative as you find your mix of function and fashion and master the benefits of athleisure. 

Psychologist and personal trainer Susan Rudnicki puts it perfectly when she says: “Your clothes represent your inner motivation and feelings. It’s a feedback loop—I feel good, so I’m going to wear the things that make me look good."
