If you haven’t gotten on board with the athleisure
trend lifestyle yet, what are you doing with your life? It’s like, the best thing to happen to fashion since high-waisted jeans. For every girl out there who’s ever had the post-lunch questionably pregnant pouch, you KNOW how great high-waisted jeans have been for the culture. Anyway, besides being comfortable while looking stylish af, the other benefit of athleisure is the ability to purchase pieces that can be worn for both lounging and going out. (Okay, maybe not like “going out” to the club in Vegas, but “wearing out to a bar that doesn’t require heels” kind of going out.) I mean, a piece of clothing you can wear for both??? Like, talk about financially responsible! That being said, here are the pieces comfortable enough to lounge in, yet stylish enough to wear out.
If you’ve ever worn anything from Free People’s Movement collection, then you know how comfortable their pieces are. This tank is the epitome of effortless style. The ribbed and distressed detailing make this tank more elevated than your basic tank. Wear it when you’re lounging with a cute bralette, or out with some sticky boobs underneath for a little subtle side boob action. Pair it with leather pants and a pair of heels and guarantee your drinks will be paid for all night.
I think I’ve said it more times than Scheana told us last season how quickly Rob can hang a TV, but neon is in. (Oh, it’s seven minutes by the way.) These pants are not only trendy, but also comfy and make for great loungewear. Pair with a loose cropped tee, like the one mentioned below, or with a sleek bodysuit for Kardashian vibes when going out. Either way, these pants are a must.
The best part about the athleisure trend is being able to wear a stylish sweatshirt out, especially in this brutal winter weather when you didn’t want to leave your house in the first place. Note: stylish sweatshirt. Don’t wear your college sorority sweatshirt out, that’s not stylish. Wear a pullover sweatshirt like this one paired with gold hoops, a tight skirt, and over-the-knee boots. It’s very Lala Kent vibes. And no, sorry not sorry for all the Vanderpump references. If you don’t know this about me yet, I’m a #pumprules die-hard, so take me as I am.
This T-shirt is cool, casual, and everything you could ask for from your loungewear. Keep it casual with some jogger sweats, or wear it out with distressed boyfriend jeans and a pair of cool boots. It’s pretty much the only T-shirt you need and, at a mere $30, you can’t go wrong.
I mean, get you a legging that can do both, am I right??? These leggings are chic enough to be worn out and comfy enough to wear around the house. They have rave reviews about how truly comfy they are, so you don’t have to just take my word for it. Not to mention, they come in a multitude of colors. So once you get your first pair and fall madly in love, you can go ahead and order a few more pairs with the rationale of them all being different colors, of course.
I don’t know how long the loungewear trend will last, but as long as the Kardashians are flaunting their absurd asses in comfy joggers, we can confidently say it’s here to stay for the time being. And, like I said, it’s actually responsible to buy these items because they’re multipurpose. So like, what are you waiting for?
