This week on Trend Spotting, we’re transitioning our activewear into ready-to-work outfits for the ultimate athleisure swap. The key to making this trend work is subtle detailing like herringbone print and glossy textures that allow basic black yoga leggings to take on a more sophisticated aire. To make this trend work in a professional setting we made sure to layer on a long cardigan and soft draped tops from Joah Brown that add a little modesty allowing the leggings to make their way into a casual office setting.
These printed leggings from Zobha feature a classic herringbone jacquard fabric that works as a neutral basic from afar with a cool look at a closer view. This legging is paired with the Live In Slouchy Tee and the Soleil Cardigan from Joah Brown. We added the Arrowhead Leather Necklace from Frasier Sterling and a high platform ankle bootie to polish the look.
The Onzie Long Leggings in Cocodrillo have a super subtle crocodile print that adds a chic element of sleek and sexy to the basic black legging. We paired these leggings with the Alexa Tank from Alo Yoga and the Charcoal Soleil Cardigan from Joah Brown. Having an all black legging affords a little more modesty, so the long cardigan covers the back, but the front is left shorter without sacrificing modesty. This look is then polished by adding the Low Rider Choker from Vanessa Mooney Jewelry and black ankle booties.
A Closer Look
A close up view reveals the uber cool textures and subtle patterns that make these leggings transitional from gym to office. Soft loose layers pair nicely with leggings for a feminine silhouette.
We get pretty spoiled here at Evolve, seeing as how we are not only allowed, but encouraged to wear activewear to the office. We even started an occasional Fancy Friday to dress up a little bit. However, seeing as how we live and breathe everyday in our stretchy pants, we’re all about making activewear work for any event! How do you style your activewear when you’re out and about?
