Amanda's Fashion Spot Summer Trends: Atheleisure

Leisurely dressing has seriously evolved over the last few years. Once upon a time dressing casually meant wearing a head to toe brightly coloured velour tracksuit (I am guilty of owning five back in my high school days!) or yoga pants with an old oversized sweater. Now, there is nothing wrong with dressing for comfort especially when you have to run a few errands after that enlightening hot yoga class or if you are meeting your friends for lunch on a lazy Sunday but even during our most relaxed times it's nice to dress up a little.

Enter Atheleisure! Atheleisure occurs when athletic wear meets the luxurious touch of soft, silky fabrics coupled with an everyday wearability. Atheleisure clothing is slightly more dressed up than your typical gym clothes and can be worn while shopping with friends, running errands, to a concert or even work! As long as you pair atheleisure clothing with clean, sophisticated accessories such as a chic pair of sunglasses, a blazer or a handbag with simple lines it can be worn for just about any occasion.

I decided to give the atheleisure trend a try with my white and navy silk striped tank blouse and hot pink silky pants. Each piece hangs off of my body which I love because it makes this outfit so comfortable. To give the outfit a chic twist, I wore my Michael Kors Hamilton Saffiano Satchel, my Michael Kors Wedges and my mirrored sunglasses. For my jewelry, I wore this beaded knot necklace, tiger ring and pyramid colour-blocked bracelet.
