Athleisure Outfits You Can Actually Wear to Work

May 19, 2019

Who says you have to choose style over comfort. Not us! These athleisure outfits are both comfortable and stylish enough to wear to a 9-5.

 

How much do you know about athleisure? The trend is popping today, but it’s nothing new. The New York fashion industry coined the term “athleisure” 20 years ago.

More people are living a healthier lifestyle. They go to the gym after work, practice yoga on their breaks, and engage in many different physical activities. Athleisure is not only stylish but it’s also convenient for these reasons.

This is also why more people are wearing athleisure to work. How can you pull it off? Take influence from these athleisure outfits.

Business Casual

If you have a business casual dress code, you can throw in some athleisure staples and mix them with traditional business clothes. This creates more versatile options while achieving the comfort and convenience of athleisure wear.

Here are a few ideas.

Athletic Jacket and Sneakers with Blouse and Trousers

For colder days, don’t feel ashamed to get out the athleisure jacket. You’ll insulate your body heat, helping you stay warm.

If you find yourself on your feet all day, your workout sneakers will support your feet all day (just ensure you clean and freshen up your shoes).

It’s best you keep your athleisure choices to solid and neutral colors, such as white and black. This will help them look sleek and match with an assortment of business outfits.

Blazer Over Yoga Pants and Athletic Top

Do you plan on heading to the gym immediately after work? Put on your favorite gym top and yoga or athletic pants. Throw on a blazer on top of the ensemble.

The blazer hides the athletic nature of your outfit, looking more like a traditional work outfit.

Finish off the outfit with your comfy sneakers and your favorite work bag, filled with your gym necessities.

Keep in mind, your pants and top should be solid colors. Ensure they don’t have any visible graphics or logos. In addition, it’s best to keep the colors neutral, such as black and gray.

Yoga Pants and Sneakers With Blouse and Denim Jacket

For the casual Friday business days, do you have to wear jeans? Instead of throwing on the same jeans every week, throw on a denim jacket — especially if you plan on hitting the gym afterward.

Pair the outfit with a pair of yoga pants and sneakers (again, no graphics and solid, neutral colors) with a nice blouse and your favorite work bag.

Casual Office

Do you have a casual “wear anything” work environment? Don’t be afraid to go athletic all the way! However, you should ensure your athleisure pieces are stylish, cute, and everything is clean and fresh.

Here are a few outfit ideas.

Hoodie, Yoga Pants, and Sneakers

Do you get cold in the office? Wear your favorite athleisure hoodie or sweater over a gym shirt. Wear a comfortable pair of yoga pants.

For a casual office, don’t be afraid to wear yoga pants or sneakers with graphics. Your hoodie can even have graphics or a logo printed. As long as it’s office-appropriate.

Pair the outfit with a work purse or even a casual purse, filled with your gym essentials.

Gym Shirt and Sneakers With Slacks, Denim Jacket, and Baseball Cap

Do you love the sporty look but have an off day at the gym? You can still wear athleisure. Find a cute pair of slacks or leggings that look similar to yoga pants.

Pair them with a non-athletic pair of sneakers. Stay comfy by wearing a gym shirt and wear a denim jacket over it.

Finish off the outfit with a baseball cap for an extra-sporty look.

Patterns or Bright Colors

Remember when we said to be safe and stick to neutrals colors?

This rule doesn’t apply to a casual office environment unless you prefer neutral colors. Athleisure comes in many different fun colors. Feel free to show off your personal athleisure style in the office!

Wear a pink gym top of a hoodie with white or gray yoga pants and pink sneakers. Wear a blue gym jacket over black top, slacks, and sneakers.

You’re also not limited to colors. Have fun with patterns! Choose a patterned gym jacket or sneakers and pair it with solids.

Business Formal

If you work in a conventional and formal office, you may think you can’t wear athleisure pieces. In reality, you can add in an athletic piece or two and still rock a lovely business formal outfit. You just have to keep it minimal and classy.

Here are some examples.

All Black

The easiest way to mask your athleisure wear in a business formal environment is by sticking to all black. Wear a black blouse, ideally a tunic. If it’s not long-sleeves, wear a suit jacket or blazer over it.

Underneath the tunic, wear yoga pants. Since the tunic is so long, your yoga pants will look similar to traditional slacks. Do you hate high heels? Unfortunately, you can’t grab for your sneakers, either. Stick to boots or flats.

Colorful Blazer With Gym Shirt

Does the thought of all-black bring you down? You can still add a pop of color to a business formal outfit and still rock the office. Opt for a blazer in a subtle pink or olive.

Underneath the blazer, wear a neutral-colored gym shirt. You won’t be able to distinguish a blouse from a gym top with the blazer, especially if the blazer is buttoned. Finish off the outfit with a nice pair of slacks and flats.
