Over the past year our day-to-day wardrobes have consisted of a trusty pair of comfy leggings, a staple sports bra, and a jumper. But even after restrictions begin to ease, we’ve noticed our athleisure staples continue to remain a closet essential. It seems the trend of loungewear and athleisure have pushed their way out of our homes and onto the streets. The result? A new blended style emerging with elements that pay homage to each aesthetic.
So, let’s dive into the top emerging athleisure outfit trends you will be seeing all summer long!
Trend One – Stylish Matching Sets
Nothing says sophistication quite like a matching set. Whether it’s a sports bra and leggings or matching loungewear look, sets will be a staple look come summertime. The best bit? It forms a whole outfit that looks intentional and stylish without even having to think about it. You can also create other outfits with each piece individually.
If you’re wanting to pick up a co-ordinated set, try our ‘Superior’ sports bra and matching bike shorts for a minimalist moment. Simply add some staple hoop earrings, your favourite sneakers and an oversized zip-up for a cosy street-style vibe.
Or for a loungewear look, try the ‘Wellness’ set, complete with cosy cardigan, tank and sweatpants. Brush your hair into a slick bun with some gold hoops and layered necklaces for an elevated outfit. When it starts to heat up, switch the trackpants for our ‘Reps High Rise Short’ for a 90s throwback.
Trend Two –Biker Shorts
What once began as a cute lockdown look that paid homage to Princess Diana’s iconic gym look, has quickly become a closet essential this year. Yes, we’re talking about bike shorts.
The rise of the biker shorts is likely attributed to the piece’s versatility and most importantly, they’re super comfy!! If you’re looking to try out this trend, check out our ‘No Ride Booty Bike Short’. Complete with booty support, a phone pocket, gusset, and lightweight material you’ll be living in this come summer. Simply throw on a loose graphic tee and get going!
When you’re not styling them into super cute summer activewear outfits, bike shorts are also a summer workout outfit essential. Pair with your sports bra and hit the gym with style.
Trend Three – Longline Sports Bras
Pre-pandemic, sports bras were reserved for the gym, home workouts and exercise. However, as our lives begin to return to a new normal so has our athleisure wardrobe. Longer line sports bras have begun to emerge in our everyday outfit rotation. They offer the support of a sports bra with the appearance of a cropped tank to create a silhouette that is effortlessly chic.
While they are a great option for workout wear with a pair of high-waisted leggings, they also make fashion statement when worn with jeans and sneakers!
Cut-outs come summertime will well and truly be in full swing. From sports bras to stylish tanks and dresses, it adds a tasteful touch to any outfit. It also taps into the rising trend of minimalism, by utilising shape and unique details to make the ultimate outfit statement, rather than a bold pattern or print.
Trend Five – Retro Washed-Out Pastels
Summer calls for fun colours and pretty pastels to brighten up our days. Retro washed-out pastels will be a big-ticket item for our summer workout wardrobes! They combine childhood nostalgia with happy colours to create an outfit you just can’t help but smile when wearing.
With the weather beginning to warm up, we can’t wait for summer so we can rock these stylish athleisure trends. Think beach days, road trips, sunbathing by the pool, festive fun and more!
