The Athletic Trend: Cool Style for a Night Out

This whole “Athletic” or “Sport Luxe” trend is really about looking effortlessly cool. Really, isn’t that always the idea? We want to look pulled together, but not overly so. And we want to look good, but not necessarily for any one particular reason. That’s why this style works so well for an evening out.
Tomorrow, we’re talking about Casual options. And they have nothing to do with sweatpants (well, almost nothing).

Everlane does casual style with ease. And if we’re talking about athletic inspiration, of course, we’re going to include a sweatshirt – especially one that can be worn over a sport shirt to dress it up, just as easily as it can be worn with a t-shirt and shorts on a cool evening. This one is such a great price – and even better quality – we couldn’t pass it up. Everlane keeps their costs down by only selling online, and they even share what the cost of producing their product is right on the product page.

This Vince modern fit, slub cotton henley adds the right amount of updated style and comfort to a hooded sweatshirt.  The 3-button placket and the open hem make this much more interesting than your average pullover  - great for a casual night out.  The dark navy is a favorite, but it is also available in white and grey, which are perfectly versatile summer colors, too.

Feel like an urban cowboy, and we mean that in the best possible way, with this cool denim shirt from 7 For All Mankind. Expert tailoring and a modern fit keeps this shirt modern. While you can certainly wear it with a pair of dark wash jeans, as shown, we really like to pair it with color chinos or twill jeans for a casual evening look - that doesn't require a trip to the rodeo.
