These aren’t your mama’s sweats. In case you live under a rock, athleisure wear is the uniform for pretty much all women—of all ages. With styles like patterned yoga pants, mesh panel racerback tops, tapered leg joggers, and even hoodies that are flattering to your figure, it’s easy to see why everyone loves this comfy yet still cute trend—and why it’s not just for the gym. Elevate your favorite athleisure outfit for errands, lunch with girlfriends, or quick organizational meetings with these simple ideas.
Add a Kimono
Black leggings and a tank can get an instant style upgrade—yet still work with sneakers—with the addition of a kimono. The loose-fitting high-style piece is a fun way to add color and personality with little effort. Try this Golden Floral Kimono for a quick transformation.
Wear Fun Earrings
Jewelry—especially earrings—is an easy way to elevate sweats. Pull your hair into a high ponytail or messy bun, and then put on a pair of eye-catching earrings. If you prefer small studs, we like these Mini Unicorn Earrings.
But if you like a bit of dangle and a slightly larger statement, try these Deep Red Rose Blossom Earrings that are sure to turn heads.
Put a Lid on It
The casual vibe of a hat pairs perfectly with running shorts and a hoodie or a sweat-wicking tee. For moms on the go who want to mix up their everyday uniform—and possibly conceal a bad hair day—we suggest the Carpool Queen Hat.
Tie On a Scarf
The Falling Feathers Scarf is a fun addition to your autumn wardrobe and can dress up your basic running or yoga pants and any top you throw on with them. Loop it around your neck or even tie it around your shoulders for an instant upgrade. Keep it in your car and you can go from the gym to the grocery store without an outfit change.
Find Some Arm Candy
If you’re adding jewelry, don’t forget bracelets. A stack of bangles, or a leather wrap bracelet can make you look less “fresh-from-the-gym” and more like you’re ready to tackle a few errands and mark some items off the to-do list. We like this Warrior Bracelet that packs just the right blend of bling and earthy hues. Plus, it features words like “brave” and “strong” to keep you motivated every time you look at your wrist.
