By now, you are probably all too familiar with the term athleisure. For a quick refresher, athleisure is a mix of athletic and leisure clothing, making it acceptable to wear your workout clothing to the grocery store, all in the name of fashion. While I’m all for being comfortable, as a lover of elegant style, I think athleisure can tend to be too casual at times. Do you agree? Thankfully, there’s now a solution for that! Enter Athflow. Pinterest predicts athflow is the next biggest thing and well, they’re rarely wrong. Keep reading for the inside scoop on this up-and-coming style as well as why you need to adopt this in your wardrobe!
What is athflow?
Athflow is where athleisure meets elegance. Athletic clothes and loungewear are not going anywhere anytime soon, but now, it’s combined with a touch of classiness that allows you to wear this style everywhere, even to the office. Instead of bomber jackets and leggings, think oversized sweaters, comfortable jumpsuits, and flowy pants. You can wear this style lounging on your couch or out to an event!
Who is athflow for?
This type of comfortable elegance style is perfect for women that are looking for nice ways to dress at home or for women that want stylish comfort out and about and at the office and are over traditional stiff fabrics and restrictive pieces.
Athflow outfit ideas
So, how do you actually wear this style? Let me show you! Think easy dressing like a cotton jumpsuit, soft fabrics, oversized pieces, and co-ord two-piece outfits. One of the secrets to athflow dressing is finding a tailored look in a sweatpants feel. Polished pieces + comfy fabrics= easy dressing. Get inspired by these outfit ideas!
1. t-shirt dress + relaxed blazer + sneakers + tote bag + sunglasses
An oversized dress in slinky cotton fabric is what home outfit dreams are made of! Throw on a slick pair of sneakers and a supersoft slouchy blazer and you’re ready to hit the streets.
2. sweatshirt + pull-on pants + sneakers
A sweatshirt with an interesting tie detail is just enough to make this casual item look less sporty. Pull-on flowy pants will be your best friend in achieving athflow, and with polished accessories and high-quality shoes, you add elegance back to this look.
3. knit sweater + pull-on pants + mules
A matching set in a comfy, flowy fabric looks elevated and totally worthy of casual elegance. This type of outfit is versatile and can easily be made to look more casual or more dressy. The mules pictured are made with a Cloudlift Lite padding that makes it feel as if you are walking on clouds. Finish off this look with these fancy mules or casual sneakers- choose depending on your mood and occasion!
4. sweater + pull-on pants + sneaker
Polished pieces, comfortable fabrics. This is what athflow dreams are made of! An outfit like this is work-appropriate and you’ll be surviving your 8 hour day in comfort and style. Switch out the shoes for whatever your day and environment requires.
