Sporty Chic: A Stylish Sweatshirt…
The appeal of “athleisure” fashion has mostly been lost on me. I’m not a gym rat or SoulCycle devotee, and for the most part, athletic inspired clothing just brought back bad memories of high school gym class. Sweats especially. Bulky and unflattering, they seemed to me to have no redeeming qualities.
Fast forward to 2020, and with many of us mostly staying at home, comfort takes the wheel. A few weeks ago, I started seeing rave reviews about the Vuori joggers. I ordered a pair on a whim and yes, they were All That. Lightweight, comfortable, and even reasonably flattering.
I loved the color, so decided to try the matching hoodie sweatshirt. Also a winner. It’s lightweight, not bulky or oversized, and is refined enough that I’d feel quite comfortable wearing it out and about with jeans or trousers.
In fact, I even added a silk scarf for a a breezy evening walk recently, and gym class never crossed my mind!
I’m wearing size Small in both the hoodie and joggers.
These pieces are machine washable, and come out of the dryer looking like new. You still won’t find me hanging out at the gym, but I will occasionally be dipping a toe into Sporty Chic, even after we’re released back into the wild.
For those who have asked about budget-friendly silk scarves, I’ve found some nice ones…
Do you incorporate “athleisure” pieces as part of your everyday style?
