Whether you are in fact on your way to the gym or simply like the look of casual athletic wear, the athleisure trend has something to offer everyone from fitness fanatics to fashionistas. While it’s easy enough to rock leggings paired with a strappy top in the summer months, Autumn 2018 means that the winds outdoors have picked up. If you want to update your athleisure looks for the fall months, here are a couple of Instagram approved ways to help you get the sporty chic look this season.

Lady in leather: For October and the weeks ahead, leather and pleather leggings replace synthetic fibres for athleisure street style. We are liking this particular Instagram look, which pairs classic black leather leggings with vibrant, trendy accents. The fitted black knit sweater and black crossbody bag with a contrasting tartan strap help to bring sophistication to an otherwise casual look. Meanwhile, the sharp red blazer and the velvety burgundy sneakers prove that leggings can truly come to life with a pop of colour.

Stylin’ sneakers: If you thought that athletic shoes were restricted to the gym, it’s time to think again. Try pairing classic black and white sneakers (as spotted here) with matching leggings for a sporty take on basic black for autumn. Meanwhile, wrapping up the look with an edgy black motorcycle jacket helps to pull together all the casual elements, and offer a rebellious feel. This athletic chic sartorial statement is a reminder that neutral black and white doesn’t have to be boring- on the contrary, you can look stylish while also staying comfortable!
