I don’t know what it is lately, but I’ve been a little obsessed with the sporty chic, athleisure style in general. I’m loving how comfortable yet stylish all of these workout-inspired items are, and the casual pieces fit really well into my usual wardrobe, allowing me to create a variety of effortlessly chic ensembles.
One of my recent favorite purchases is this ribbed crop top from Forever 21. I’ve never been much of a crop top fan until last year (I know, I’m a little late to the party, right?), but ever since I started last summer, I can’t seem to get enough of them! 🙂 They’re just so comfortable yet chic at the same time, and I love how great they look both dressed up or down.
Crafted from a lightweight ribbed knit, this crop top is different from your normal midriff-baring blouse because it features an asymmetrical cut hem that really does such a great job of highlighting the waistline.
Rather than dressing it up, I decided to play up my recent obsession with the athleisure style and paired it with a pair of fleece leggings. I love the vertical stripes that run down the leg because it really helps to streamline the silhouette, making them go on for days.
This look is perfect for a little session at the gym, and by tying a plaid shirt around the waist, the ensemble can even work for a day out with friends. That’s what I love the most about the sporty, athleisure look – the ensembles are not only workout-friendly, they’re extremely stylish and perfect for going out in!
And of course, to finish off the look, I paired them with my Nikes and my current favorite pair of sunnies from French eyewear brand, Polette. If you haven’t heard about Polette, they’re an online optician, offering designer frames from $6.99 to $49.99, and lenses from $9.99 to $75! 🙂 They’re definitely one of my new faves, so if you’re looking for a pair of glasses, be sure to check out all of their stylish frames!
