The Fashion Girl’s Way To Make Sporty Work

If you were down with the wear-sweats-in-public trend of 2014, good news, the athleisure look is back and even stronger this spring. While the vibe may not always work in your 9-to-5 life, it definitely can for casual Friday and the weekends thanks to high-concept details like leather collars atop tennis-like jackets and matching sets in luxe fabrics. Below, five of our favorite runway looks, along with similar items to shop. Easy, comfortable, fashion-forward spring style? No sweat.

The Tennis Jacket: Seen At Alexander Wang

The structured silhouette and interesting details (like the leather collar) make this jacket work in real life — not just on the court.

The Sporty Dress: Seen At Antonio Marras This is how you incorporate the athletic trend into your night-out game. The band detail across the waist, color scheme, and sandals give off a sporty look, but the dress' silhouette keeps the overall vibe elegant.

The Fancy Track Pants: Seen At Kye

Leather track pants aren't going anywhere, but they're getting a makeover this season with extra piping details. This accent dresses them up for work or play.

The Matching Athletic Trousers: Seen At Preen

We love the idea of an inverted matching set with track pants and a coordinating top. While super comfy, it somehow feels elevated for more formal occasions.

The Full-On Uniform: Seen At Baum und Pferdgarten
If you want to bring it back to your little league look, opt for an actual matching set. The best part? You won't need to think about putting a full outfit together — throw the two pieces on and you're done.
