Addicted To Athleisure? Here Are The Hero Pieces You Need Now

It’s the trend that most of us used to love to hate. But if you haven’t jumped on the Athleisure bandwagon by now, it’s definitely time you did. Simply put, it offers comfort and style conveniently packaged up in one wear-anywhere outfit. Here are the hero pieces on my wish list right now.

I adore this sports-inspired jacket by Victoria Beckham’s diffusion line, Victoria Victoria Beckham. It’s elegant and smart, despite the strong sportswear vibe. At 70 per cent off, it’s a fantastic buy, as it really is a wear-anywhere piece.

Oversized striped satin jacket, Victoria Victoria Beckham, €266 (reduced from €855) at net-a-porter.com

Cos always adds a level of interest to the simplest of pieces. The draping combined with an irregular striped print adds a strong point of difference to this otherwise simple piece. The subtle sportswear reference makes this top feel very modern. It works as effortlessly with trainers as it does with heels.

Striped top with draped neck, €55 at Cos

Made from a silk blend, these gorgeous jogging-style pants would be wasted if worn only to walk in. Styled with a killer heel, they look modern and chic and offer a fresh way of approaching summer evening wear.

Harem style jogging pants, Fendi, €750 at farfetch.com

The simple graphic stripe in athletic green on the side of this black dress gives it a strong athleisure vibe. To freshen it up for spring, wear it with a white T-shirt and white trainers.

Black midi dress, €86 (reduced from €215) at bimbaylola.com
