These Calvin Klein sports bras are everything but a sports bra and that is how I like it! For an athleisure look, I am not looking for a bra that holds everything in while I am working out. I am looking for something comfy and sexy without doing too much. My husband says this bra does the work of God so that's a plus! 

2. Lounging Leggings

I'll just admit it. Most of the time when I am wearing leggings it is for being comfortable and cute when I'm lounging around the house not when I am working out. So for athleisure wear, all you have to do is look for a cute, stylish pair of leggings without worrying about if they will hold up for an exercise! 

3. Stylized Hoodie

You can do so much with a basic hoodie now! Before they were just simple sweatshirts and now you can find them stylized with laces, graphic saying and cut off detail. You can even make your own by going to the thrift store, finding a cute hoodie and making it a cut off yourself!

4. Sneakers

Growing up my dad always got after me for wearing impractical (but might I add fashion-forward) shoes. He would always get me a pair of boring sneakers so that I had them and they would just end up at the back of my closet, barely worn. The athleisure fad helped me toss my sneaker aversion out the window! 

5. Hats

On athleisure days, the goal is to look put together without actually putting myself together so obviously I am not going to do anything with my hair. Adding a trendy hat is a great way to hide the frizz while looking good!
