Athleisure is not a revolutionary concept in the fashion world. Indeed, the industry has been inundated with sportswear-inspired pieces season after season, with hoodies and leggings becoming mainstays both on and off the runway. But for those of us not quite bold enough to take to the streets in a head-to-toe tracksuit, consider the humble sports tee. No longer relegated to the bottom of your gym bag, this is an easy and accessible way to flex your sartorial muscles while still staying on-trend.
Take inspiration from the streets and keep it playful with mismatched textures. A simple cotton tee loosely tucked into a leather skirt elevates your look from athletic to elegant, while teaming with a cosy cashmere knit and distressed denim keeps it feeling casual and is perfect for day.
Go ahead and take this trend for a spin with our pick of the high street below.
