The 'Athliesure Trend' Is Why Sports Jerseys And Baseball Hats Are A Thing

So we know athliesure is kind of a confusing name, since the trend is dressing up athletic apparel, but we’ll go with it. Basically, athliesure is taking things you’d wear to play sports: hats, running shorts, sneakers, etc. and making them un-sporty. We’ve seen the trend on the runway with Herve Leger baseball hats, and street style stars are getting in on the action too with their dressed up Nike free sneaks. But you don’t have to be a model to pull-off this trend, it’s actually pretty easy (especially if you saved your old sports jerseys over the years). Follow these easy tips to nail the athliesure trend:

1) Pick one part of your outfit that you want to be athliesure.

Whether it’s throwing on a crop top mesh jersey, or a leather baseball cap, that should be the one part of your outfit that reflects the trend. Everything else should be what you would normally wear.

2) Pair your athliesure pick with feminine pieces.

The structured shapes against the feminine pieces is a nice contrast and completely unexpected. For example, dress-up running shorts with a clean-cut blouse and heels, or wear sneakers with a tight pencil skirt and leather vest.

3) Accessorize with anything statement making. 

This one isn’t a must do, but wearing a stack of chunky bracelets, or carrying a rhinestone encrusted clutch elevates the athliesure look for more of a sports luxe vibe.

If anything, you should try this trend because it’s WAY more comfy then squeezing into a bodycon dress and heels. Plus, we’re sure the guys will take notice if you’re wearing a sports jersey from their favorite team.
