Choose pieces that fuse sporty with sophisticated for a winning result. If you’ve dismissed the athleisure trend as a sloppy excuse for spending the day in sweatpants, it might be time for you to reevaluate. Thanks to storied fashion houses like Versace and Tory Burch joining the conversation, sports-infused ready-to-wear now boasts a thoroughly elevated persona. According to celebrity stylist Anita Patrickson, the trend brilliantly serves women with a busy lifestyle. “Being comfortable and mobile is more important than ever since most women are multitasking every day,” says Patrickson, who has dressed many red-carpet regulars including Emma Watson and Chrissy Teigen. For those who recoil at the sight of spandex and neon, fear not: “The pieces are less literal than they were when the trend first came onto the scene,” Patrickson says. “Tech and neoprene fabrics in sleek cuts and simple silhouettes can be worn to the gym or out to lunch. Style them with statement accessories for a fashion-forward result.” No matter where you’re headed, these stylish ensembles are guaranteed to win you first place.
