I’m not 100 percent ready for summer to end, but I do love fall fashion. And I’m especially a fan of the athleisure trend that has been popular over the last couple years.
Lower temperatures are beginning to set in, so I decided to incorporate some atheleisure vibes for a casual early autumn look.
Regardless of the weather, I tend to favor full-length leggings over cropped styles. (Is it me, or are they just more flattering?)
So, to make things autumnal, I went for this gorgeous olive green color. It’s muted enough to match almost anything, but it is a nice change of pace from typical black or gray pairs. Don’t get me wrong, though, I still *love* my grays.
White is my favorite neutral, so I paired these leggings with a white cropped tank. Because the fabric is super smooth, this top is perfect for wearing with athletic-inspired looks. But, it also has ultra-skinny straps, so it’s still feminine–not overpowering–which I love.
These two pieces work perfectly together in my opinion. The high-waist on the athletic pants elongates the legs while also compensating for the crop top’s lack of coverage. It’s definitely a silhouette I can see myself rocking all season long and into the next (with various jackets, sweaters and scarves, of course).
When I ordered these Free People leggings, I was a little nervous they may not fit 100 percent because they are only available in two sizes (XS/S and M/L). It turns out, these are some of the most comfortable leggings I’ve ever worn!
I love that they’re impossibly soft and stretch with my body, yet supportive enough to get me through some my fav workouts, including cycling and pilates. They’re perfecting for taking from the streets to the gym, and I cannot wait to get them in another color (or two).
To top off the look I added a pair of classic white vans with a tan sole. These are definitely my go-to shoes when I need something both stylish and practical. I love that the athleisure trend has made supportive sneakers part of a fashionable wardrobe.
I skipped jewelry and accessories all-together, as I typically do with my athletic-inspired looks. My style tends to be minimal most of the time, anyway.
