The Athletic Trend: More than just Sweatpants for Casual Dressing

Who knew that sitting around in Lululemon is considered a trend? Well, we’re not saying it isn’t (we love our work out gear, too), but that’s not what we’re talking about this week. The fashion world has really done a great job of taking inspiration from our most comfortable pieces and finding ways to elevate them – without losing any of the casual ease. And now, we don’t have to be embarrassed about leaving the house in our sweats – we can feel confident.
If you want to learn more about wearing the athletic trend for work or after 5, please check out our tips from earlier in the week in Fashion Finds. Let us know what you think. Is it for you? See you next week!

We’ve praised J.Crew for their linen tees and tanks before. This novelty baseball version is a fun twist on your basic tee. Perfect for a backyard barbecue with a pair of shorts or a day of shopping with a casual skirt.

Vince’s comfy and stylish update to a hooded sweatshirt is exactly our aesthetic. It’s a versatile, easy fit in a large array of sizes that is certainly casual, but manages to be polished at the same time. You’ll wear this in the evening with your shorts or cropped pants and into the cooler days later in the summer with your jeans.

Athletic inspirations often give off a cool, tougher edge. But this trend takes on a soft, classic look when done in this rugby stripe linen. While still casual, there’s a bit more of a polished feeling here – perfect for a casual lunch at the club. It pairs beautifully with the Vince hoodie shown once the sun starts setting.

If sweatpants and jeans had a baby – an adorable baby – it would be these lightweight chambray pants from Splendid. Clearly, they are a great casual piece with a white tee for any easy brunch look. But you can also add a fun wedge with a linen top for a dressier, yet still easy, look for dinner al fresco.

Everlane’s high quality at amazing prices is just one of the reason’s we chose this short-sleeved sweatshirt. The fit is great, and we love their policy of full disclosure with their customers – they even reveal all of their costs in creating the item, which seem very accurate to us. This easy fitting sweatshirt is adorable. We wear it with shorts, jeans, or maxi skirts. And we can’t wait to wear it in the fall with a button-down shirt underneath.

Who doesn't love luxurious lounge/casual wear? Persico – an Italy design house established in 1962 – delivers with yummy soft cowl neck sweater and coordinating pants. The elastic trim on the cuffs of the pants and sweater give the pieces a sporty nod, but they are perfect for that casual day of going to the movies and relaxing…any day of the year.

Sure, we’ll throw in a pair of sweatpants…when they’re from Norma Kamali. She’s been a style icon since the ‘70’s, and we love her take on classic sweats here. The wide, looser cuff and slant pockets give them some street style. You don’t have to wear a tee with a pair like this – we love them with a casual mens-inspired button down shirt and a pair of driving moc’s or slip-on sneakers.

Vince does sweaters like no other. We want to buy every one of them in the office. We know you might not be thinking about wool/cashmere cardigans quite yet, but this one is worth planning ahead for. Soft, oversized, and with a sporty-stripe in muted, neutral colors. You will wear this all winter with your favorite jeans on the weekend (or black trousers for work). Note: If you've bought Vince sweaters in the past, you'll know that they are generally cut for an oversized fit. This is no exception - consider sizing down.

How can we talk about athletic inspiration without something from Lacoste? Started in 1933 in France as a tennis line, they bring a high quality, sporty yet classic look to everything they touch – including this tote. It’s has a durable PVC outer, which they’ve actually embossed with a pique texture and the signature croc – so clever…and easy to spot clean.
