If there’s one-thing jobholders can agree on, it’s comfort at work. I’m talking a relaxed, polished outfit that integrates athleisure clothing in a professional manner. All it takes is the addition or removal of a few key items. Jenna Transtrum, owner of Senita Athletics, an online boutique for women’s active wear shared expert tips on how to rock athleisure in the office.
The right blouse
Start with a dark or jewel tone pair of leggings. Transtrum suggested choosing a coordinating blouse that will catch an eye. Don’t be afraid to wear a bright colored or printed blouse like ones from AOSO, an online fashion and beauty retailer specializing in dresses, jeans, shirts and shoes. “The fit of your blouse should be loose and flowing to offset your fitted tights.”
It’s no secret that in 2017, well-fitted leggings have become the craze yoga pants were in the late 2000s. Transtrum explained how a basic, yet classic, pair of long black leggings lends itself perfectly to boots and heels. “The added height of a heel or depth of a boot will make your legs look like they go on for miles!”
As people transition from the gym to the office, simply adding a structured jacket will instantly dress up their gym attire. It’s light, ventilated and sporty—and fashionistas can put it over damp skin while it brushes away moisture and keeps them looking stylish in the process. Transtrum recommended an embroidered jacket, like this one from Anthropologie or something a bit more edgy like this black leather jacket from AOSO. Try a printed legging with a basic blazer, or vice versa. The length of the jacket can be played with too!
Let accessories be your best friend when making your workout clothes office ready. “Big and bold statement necklaces, light and flirty scarves and adorable headbands will transition you seamlessly from beast mode to boss mode.”
