Athleisure Wear With A Twist in New York City

January 20, 2018 0 Comments

In 2016, Merriam-Webster officially added the word ‘athleisure’ in its dictionary. According to the dictionary, Athleisure is casual clothing designed to be worn for both exercising and for general use (Merrimam-Webster). Since I am on my way to being the next Rihanna of fashion (kidding, Rihanna is the fashion queen), I am constantly styling myself to create an elevated look. Below, you will see how I created athleisure wear with a twist in New York City .

Technically, you can wear this whole outfit while working out. I can reassure you not every piece of this look was designed to workout in. I am not a psychic but will tell you what will happen if you workout in this look; you will “moon” someone.  Lets prevent that from happening and only workout in my Lululemon runner’s hat featured in this post.

I went shopping in kitten heels one of the first times I explored the busy streets of Soho. A few blisters, band aids, and an unexpected purchase of new shoes later, I quickly learned that shopping around New York requires comfy shoes.  One way to top off your athleisure wear look is with a pair of Nike shoes which is what I chose (pictured on my Instagram).
