So we all know how to wear activewear in the gym, but styling your cycling shorts, crop top or leggings for a coffee date can sometimes seem a little daunting. We’ve gathered some of our favourite influencer style inspo to help you nail the athleisure trend.

You wanna make the most of that really nice gym co-ord you bought last week? Yeah sure you can wear it to spin, but you can also wear it to casual drinks, lunch with friends or a spot of shopping. By blurring the lines between fashion and function, you can create athleisure looks that are totally wearable for any situation.

The relaxed and cool trend blends sportswear with casual outfits, to give you the best of both worlds. It’s easy to pull off and gives your outfit a lowkey vibe.

How to style athleisure

Team a gym co ord with an oversized black blazer and loads of accessories. Slip into some low open toe mules and a pair of sunglasses for a brunch appropriate look.

Skirts might not be the first item of clothing that comes to mind when someone mentions atheleisure, but tennis skirts are probs Instagram’s favourite trend rn. Find out our top tips for styling a tennis skirt.

The easiest way to transform your outfit from ‘gymwear’ to casual wear, is by accessorising. Add a hat, some jewellery or maybe a jacket, to ensure that your look is 100% inappropriate for spin class and 100% suitable for lunch with friends.

Throw an oversized shirt, gold jewellery and a pair of chunky trainers with a simple co-ord to make it a little less gym-friendly and a little more gin-friendly.
