We’ve all heard it before. Athleisure is this year’s fashion fad, and there are a million ways to wear the trend. From long, loose layers to crazy printed leggings, athleisure combines the comfort and ease of sportswear with the style and fit of your favorite ready-to-wear pieces. If you’re new to the athleisure concept, and you’d really like to achieve a look that’s more Kendall Jenner than Britney circa 1990, we’ve got plenty of inspiration for you to get started. Most importantly, athleisure should suit your personality and lifestyle, so no matter what the stars have in store for your busy life, there’s an outfit to match.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You’ve got a creative mind that reflects in your cool, casual aesthetic. Your wardrobe contains a mix of bold prints and chic, body-hugging cuts because you’re not afraid to show off that figure. Give athleisure a go with a matching jacket and legging set in a vibrant print. At the gym, all you need is a sports bra, but bring a tank top along to throw on after for a day of errands, shopping or exploring.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Your favorite piece of clothing is most likely that soft, worn-in pair of blue jeans you’ve had since high school, and you’d much rather feel comfortable than constricted. You’re probably already inclined to jump on the athleisure bandwagon, but you can ease into the trend by pairing those well-loved jeans with a loose tee and a modern varsity jacket. Slip on some sneakers and you’ve got a versatile look that’s functional and fabulous.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Geminis don’t like to be pinned down to one type of look. You’ve got a style that’s all your own, and you favor eclectic mixes of prints, colors, and textures. Luckily, athleisure should be fun and definitely not fussy, so you can easily incorporate some sporty pieces into your wardrobe. Pair a boxy tee with a classic mini skirt and accessorize with funky sneakers, printed laces, and a metallic bag. Geminis love their accessories, so go big and have fun!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
The Cancer girl is all about the classics. You like comfortable, versatile pieces that you can mix and match with a lot of other things in your wardrobe. Invest in a couple key athleisure garments that can be worn a number of ways, like a long, knit sweater and full-length black leggings. A basic tank, printed tee or crop top are all great options to wear underneath the cozy topper.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
The Leo lady is confident, fierce and always colorful. Your buoyant personality translates perfectly to athleisure, where you can go all out with bold prints and bright colors. To prevent your look from becoming too clown-like, pick one piece to be the focal point of the outfit. A pair of vibrant leggings is a great option and paired with a relaxed hoodie, you’ll be the epitome of casual-cool.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You know how to get in touch with your feminine side, but as a Virgo, you also appreciate a bit of edginess in your wardrobe. Classic cuts and neutral colors are amped up with luxe fabrics and metallic details. For a Virgo-worthy athleisure look, mix classically athletic pieces like a sweatshirt or jersey with leather, denim, and other cool-girl favorites. Keep the fit feminine and chic with a crop top or jacket that highlights the waist and curve-hugging jeans.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You’re a master of mixing, and you enjoy combining masculine and feminine aesthetics in addition to prints, colors, and textures. A boxy skirt and basic tee shirt blend the best of the feminine form with the sportiness of menswear. Slip-on sneakers complete the look while a simple cross-body bag makes for easy, on-the-go living. Make one garment, like the skirt in this example, the focal point of the look by choosing an all-over print. The key is to balance your proportions with a fitted waist and flared a-line cut.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Your look is focused, polished and always put-together. While everyone else may envy your easy-breezy style, you know that that the key is picking tailored, classic cuts in black, white and neutrals. Maintain your hint of edginess with sporty joggers and chunky heels, but take the look to true fashionista territory with a timeless black blazer. It’s a look that as comfortable to wear as it is put together, but you’ll still dazzle the most finicky fashion maven with your elegance and flair.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You favor classic cuts, a figure-hugging fit and subtle prints. Athleisure blends with structured sophistication in this take on the modern pantsuit. The Sagittarius girl doesn’t take herself too seriously, and this outfit proves that style doesn’t have to be stuffy. Pick a matching jogger and jacket set to pair with a black tee and sandals for day or pointy-toe heels for a night out. It’s comfy, versatile and completely effortless.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You like to keep things sleek and sophisticated, and classic cuts and streamlined fits are your jam. You may have once cringed at the thought of athleisure, but now you know that it goes far beyond sweatpants and dirty sneakers. Try pairing those trendy ripped jeans with sporty slip-ons, a deep V-neck tee and a long-boxy coat that will take any look from daytime cool to evening chic. For the Capricorn, it’s all about versatile layering for a mix and match wardrobe that’s always accessible, so look for sportswear pieces in a variety of cuts and colors.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Your signature look is fun and flirty, and you dress to make yourself happy, no one else. When it comes to athleisure, you can maintain your flirty flair with a mini skirt and crop top in sportswear inspired fabrics. Pair the look with tennis shoes for comfort and a chic printed coat for a touch of class. A structured bag is the perfect accessory, and you look for a rich, textured material like leather to add a bit of interest and sophistication to an otherwise relaxed look.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You are a true minimalist, and you appreciate style in its simplest form. Keep things clean and chic with a black and white look and only two classic pieces—a great pair of joggers in a rich material and a flowy cropped tank. You could add sandals or slip-on sneakers for a daytime look or go bold with strappy heels for a killer evening ensemble.
