6 Ways To Amp Up Your Athleisure Looks (The Hadid Sisters Edition)

Because we’re not ready to let the trend go just yet.

Thanks to the street style phenomenon, the sport luxe trend is definitely not going anywhere anytime soon. But the question remains: just HOW are we gonna elevate the style and steer clear of the unkempt road? This week, we’re getting our style inspo from one of the most stylish (and popular) sisters around – Gigi and Bella Hadid. Here are six ways to tune up the volume of your oh-so comfy ensembles – not only reserved for day offs!

#1 Bling it up

When in doubt, add bling! Both Gigi and Bella manage to add a touch of glamour into their sweatsuit looks with shiny embellishment, without forgetting to flaunt their toned abs while they’re at it too.

#2 Go monochrome

Wearing the same colour head to toe may seem like a fuss-free option, but sometimes, it requires even more effort! We love how Bella finished off her casual look with a pair of ankle-strap heels and cool sunnies.

#3 Sex it up

You can always flaunt skin to break off the covered up look; bare your décolletage with an off-shoulder knitted top, or flaunt your toned midriff in a tube top- they add a polished factor to your baggy trousers!

#4 Matchy-matchy

For a fail-proof pairing, choose a set of printed separates (or two pieces in similar prints) for added interest. Figure-hugging pieces keep things streamlined!

#5 Too cool for school

Inject your personality into the athleisure trend! For a feminine feel, pair your hoodie with flow-y skirts or girlie hues, or go down the edgy route with a pair of cool booties and distressed details.

#6 Mix and match

The easiest way to tune things up is to incorporate different materials. Bella’s velvet co-ords is a cool (and even comfier) alternative to your basic sweatsuit, while Gigi’s long shearling coat adds a luxe touch.
