Studio to Street Style: Black & White Athletic Look

athleisure-street-studio-style-5I love that “athleisure” is now a thing. Every major label has an activewear line, and more and more fitness brands pop up daily. Not only are there countless options for styling yourself to workout, but wearing the athletic look outside of the gym is becoming totally commonplace. It’s like all the pieces of my world have come together (ha!).

Since I rock the oh-so-comfortable athleisure trend every day thanks to this wonderful career I have, I thought it’d be fun to start sharing the occasional fitness style post on the blog with some ideas for transitioning workout clothing into an outfit you can wear running errands, shopping, grabbing a coffee with friends—all that good everyday stuff.

When in doubt, black leggings are the easiest to transition from fitness class to streetwear, so let’s start there today.

In the Studio

Doesn’t get any easier than black and white! Tie a white tunic tank into a knot for a flattering and functional look, and pick a pair of black leggings with a fun detail, like the sheer paneling on these Michi tights. athleisure-street-studio-style-1 athleisure-street-studio-style-2 athleisure-street-studio-style-3

In the Street

Untie your knotted tank to its full length and add a button-up tied around your waist to incorporate some pattern (plaid is my favorite!). Add an accessory or two, like a watch, but don’t overdo it with jewelry—too much bling with workout clothing just looks weird. If you’re a little sweaty post-class, use a hat to cover your hair. Throw on some sneaker wedges to add a little edge; add a pop of color with some reflective sunglasses or another accessory; grab your bag, and you’re good to go! athleisure-street-studio-style-6 athleisure-street-studio-style-8athleisure-street-studio-style-7 athleisure-street-studio-style-4 athleisure-street-studio-style-9

  5. killin it Nicole! love that streetstyle look. Unfortunately for me I can’t wear anything that is longer than shorts length at the gym (otherwise i die of heat and melt into sweat pools), otherwise i would absolutely steal this look!

  6. I am really curious about those sneaker wedges. I saw your previous post about different ones. Is it like wearing wedges, but they look like a sneaker? I really like the way those look on you… Just curious. Thanks!
