Sneaker Heads, Unite
When I was 12 years old I scored a paper route solely to fund a pair of purple suede Etonics. Two decades later I still love a fresh pair of sneakers. It's no surprise that the Style Archetype (discover yours here) I most identify with is Athleisure.
The term "Athleisure" emerged a few years ago as a way to excuse ourselves from wearing yoga pants. Today, Athleisure isn't about looking like you just came from the gym - it's a mash up style that melds ease of movement with sharp, tailored lines, a cool minimalist vibe and - most importantly - a dash of that certain je ne sais quoi.
The Athleisure 2017 Outfit Formula
After extensive Pinterest research, I have nailed down the 5 ingredient recipe for nailing Athleisure in 2017.
Athleisure 2017 Essential #1: Throwback Sneakers
Throwback sneakers are a given. Extra points if they have thick white soles and white laces. Resist the urge to buy Adidas Superstars or Stan Smith's with the green tab.
Athleisure 2017 Essential #2: Knee Hole Denim
You aren't killing Athleisure in 2017 unless we can see your knees.
Athleisure 2017 Essential #3: Oversized Sweater
Cold knees, warm heart, as they say.
Athleisure 2017 Essential #4: Fishnet Socks
Nothing says "street chic" quite like sweaty feet.
5. Athleisure 2017 Essential #5: Minimalist Watch
You've got a mighty big face for such a minimalist watch.
