I’ve always had this funny goal to make sneakers look cute or fashionable. It’s no easy feat! A few weeks ago, my bestie and I visited NYC, and I purchased these sneakers for our trip. I knew we’d be doing a lot of walking, so I was determined to figure out how to make these sneakers work. This was my actual outfit for day 2, and one of my first real attempts at the athleisure trend. After some trial and error, I think I finally figured out how to pull together the perfect athleisure look:
2. Add sneakers. The key is making sure they match. For example, if you’re wearing grey joggers and a blush pink sweatshirt, these sneakers would be a good option. Try to stay in the same shade range. Light sneakers with light colors, or dark sneakers with dark colors.
4. Accessories! I think accessories are key for the athleisure look. Otherwise, it’s just loungewear. Add a cute beanie or baseball cap, and your favorite sunglasses. I always reach for aviators, especially for more casual outfits.
How about you? Have you tried the athleisure trend yet? If not, I hope some of these tips will help you give it a go! If you’re a mom, it’s a great way to look chic, while still being comfortable.
Happy Friday! xoxo ~ Alissa
