Incorporating stripes into athleisure

Earn your stripes with a classic sporty look! The concept of athleisure and sports-luxe has taken the fashion world by storm, with its effortless combination of comfort, functionality and style. The trend incorporates elements of classic athletic wear like the sneaker and the baseball cap but makes it fashionable by pairing it with denim jeans or a luxe dress. Foschini’s women’s range showcases the many different ways in which you can be a part of this trend and the key pieces in making this trend work.

Incorporating stripes into athleisure has made a comeback as its versatile pattern allows it to be styled in a variety of ways. It adds a different dimension to the trend, giving it edge, femininity and sophistication – all characteristics of the modern woman. To avoid a pattern-overload, keep the stripes to a minimum and pair it with solid colours. Mix and match with striped culottes and a plain white jersey to keep the look refined and polished.

Knitwear, a winter staple, isn’t often seen as being athletic – its fabric, weight and feel don’t mesh well with the sporting field. However, the athleisure trend makes it possible to transform your knitwear into an inspired athletic look by adding sneakers and a pair of comfortable joggers.

What we love about athleisure, is its ability to have you go from the office straight to after-work drinks with your friends – it’s the ideal look for the modern, woman on-the-go, in search of chicness but comfort too.
