Once upon a time, sportswear was just reserved for the gym. Now, things are changing, and we have seen the rise of a trend which goes by the name of athleisure fashion.
Of course, such a relaxed trend can tempt some big mistakes by those who don it. Today’s article will hopefully help you safeguard against these, as we now take a look at four of the most common ones.
Mistake #1 – The tired trainers look
There “may” have been a time when wearing those old, tired trainers was completely acceptable. Now, we’re not too sure.
In fact, scrap that, it’s completely out. This is one of those examples of someone pushing the trend too far and rather than relying on footwear that has served you well for the last five years, instead consider turning to something like this Emm low top trainer from Head Over Heels.
Mistake #2 – Your underwear is visible to all
It sounds crude, but trust us, this is a common mistake. There’s no doubt that leggings and jeggings are pretty big on trend right now – and rightly so.
Unfortunately, this opens up one of the worst mistakes known to the athleisure fashion industry. It now becomes all-too easy for your underwear to be visible through the main garment – usually because you have chosen the wrong cut, fabric or colour. The worst offenders involve contrasting shades of the latter; with white leggings and black underwear being pretty noticeable to anyone who ventures by.
It might not be something you consider for most outfits but when it comes to athleisure, make sure you think about this as soon as you get out of bed in a morning.
Mistake #3 – You mix things up with your gym wear
On first glance, it might seem as though athleisure is the same as gym wear. However, this doesn’t mean to say that you wear the same gear as you’ve just been in through your gym workout.
Put bluntly, sweaty gym clothes don’t resemble any sort of fashion trend. It’s a definite no-go area, and that’s the end of the story.
Mistake #4 – You’re too comfortable
Following on from the previous point, let’s talk about the comfort-factor briefly. There’s no doubt that athleisure is one of the most comfortable trends going; with some people eating, sleeping and even working in such garments.
However, there is a line, and you need to be careful not to cross it. In other words, wearing the same tracksuit every day is pushing things too far. You’ve also got to really jump into this trend; there are completely individual athleisure lines and it’s no longer about shopping in the sports store. It means that you need to treat this as a trend and not just a comfortable way of living.
