3 Key Wardrobe Pieces for the Gal Who Lives in Athleisure but Wants to Mix It Up – She.Is.Beautiful & Heart Ping Life

How lucky are we to live in a time where our trusty black leggings are becoming appropriate in most places we go on a daily basis?! With that said, it is easy to get in a fashion rut. We sat down with Erica Brown of Dylan Star to learn about how to feel like we are in athleisure (i.e. comfy as our pj’s), but looking fly:

  1. Leather Leggings

So the secret is out!  Faux leather leggings have the feel of yoga pants, but the sassy outward appearance of Sandy at the end of the movie “Grease”.  Pair them with a long flowy sweater that covers your waistband and bum for maximum style points. We asked Erica the best shoes to pair with leather leggings and she suggested fun casual slip on’s (as shown below), vans and more.

 2. Dressing up the basic black leggings you already own

Denim jackets are here to stay and this look instantly took our leggings from yoga class to lunch.  The key was a long tunic to dress them up a bit and layering the jacket on top for a pop of a different texture.  Add fun accessories like the bun clip shown here and fun sunglasses to kick it up a notch.

3. Long Sweater Skirts 

So what is better than wearing spandex you ask?  Wearing a skirt that feels like a ginormous cozy blanket!  Erica made us try on a ton of sweater skirts and we are.forever.changed!  Pair with a matching sweater (as shown below), a bodysuit or a basic t-shirt for your new favorite winter look.

So keep rocking that athleisure and anything else that makes you feel beautiful girl!  But when you want to change things up while still feeling cozy, we hope these ideas inspire you.
