Activewear is called active wear for a reason. Because you wear it when you are being active.
I don't know about you but having brunch at 11am on Sunday is not very active. Even if you went to the gym before hand you probably had a changeroom to get changed in!
Activewear looks great in context! There's nothing like seeing some bold and colourful leggings run past you around the Botanical Gardens but it's something else to see them at a cute cafe when you are celebrating your bestie's birthday!
Instead of always wearing your favourite leggings and then complaining that you never wear your nice clothes, why don't you actually just wear them! Wear your newest Zimmerman skirt with a tshirt and boots for going to the supermarket, or your favourite night time jacket just for spending the day at uni.
Dressing up makes you feel so empowered, and even if people do think you are overdressed just tell them you have more exciting places to be later!
See below for the easiest outfits to wear to uni or brunch instead of your Activewear!
Jumpsuits are so good because there is zero thought required. Just add shoes are you are ready to go!
Wearing: Zimmerman jumpsuit, Gucci shoes, The Daily Edited bag.
Mini dress + comfy jumper
This combo is perfect for getting wear out of your favourite summer dress, even in the colder months. Playing with proportions is great for this look, the baggier the jumper means the skirt should be cuter and flippy too! Bonus points here if your jumper and dress are in similar colour tones.
wearing: Ralph Lauren limited edition jumper; Juicy Couture strapless mini; Adidas superstars
Logo tshirt + skinny jeans
This is probably the easiet outfit to recreate, and in fact used to be the "it" look before Activewear took over the world! This combination can literally take you from day to night as long as you have the right footwear, like some classic pointed toe boots!
wearing - tommy Hilfiger tshirt; topshop Leigh jeans; Jeffrey Campbell boots.
Favourite "going out skirt" + comfy jumper
The best and most effective way to wear investment pieces like statement skirts is by getting the most wear out of them as possible. If that means wearing a comfy jumper and sneakers then why not!? You'll be the belle of the brunch table this weekend with this look!
wearing: ray ban sunglasses; Ralph Lauren jumper; Sass and Bide skirt; adidas superstars; Louis Vuitton neverful.
Blue jeans + white shirt
Theres reason this look is so iconic- because you can literally wear it year round and fits in perfectly anywhere! Bonus points for having on trend details such as lace or frills.
