DEBORAH'S STYLE

Colorblock Sweater Has Athleisure Vibe

Athleisure hasn’t been high on my list of new looks to try. But recently I found a classy way to get the Athleisure vibe without having to sacrifice my style.

I’ve never warmed up to the idea of clothing designed for workouts and fitness, such as yoga pants, sweats, and track suits being worn leisurely to work, restaurants and in other such settings. It just feels a little sloppy to me.  However, I do like the thought of a relaxed, sporty look for my on the go lifestyle.

That’s the reason I was attracted to this cute new outfit I just picked up from Michael Kors.

This cute colorblock top with the racing stripe border is right on trend. It has an athletic, modern look, but it’s dressier than true Athleisure clothing.

My soft pullover feels great on because it’s nice and lightweight for this transitional time of year.  I love the body-hugging fit, which is streamlined but not tight. Vivid orange stripes at the bottom, cuffs and up along the sides create bold contrast against the navy and give my sweater a fabulous shot of energy.

Even when I’m sporty, I like a touch of femininity, which is why I added this darling  MK oval crossbody bag with gold chain. The gentle nude/blush color soften things up just a touch.

I’m ready for action! It’s a great look for when I’m on the go. This outfit makes me feel healthy, happy and fit!

The cropped cargo pants have the cutest gold zippers at the pockets and ankles. They are the perfect length to show off my fab sneakers.

I’m a huge fan of statement sneakers.  They are comfy, practical and fun. These are super cool with the white python print and silver trim. I wear them traveling and had three people stop me at the airport to ask where I got them!

The great thing about a sporty look? It’s youthful without making you look like you are trying too hard. Sporty is energetic, and energetic is youthful!

I look pulled together, but relaxed, visiting the gift shop at our local art gallery gift shop in Burlington, Ontario.

Sporty, a little bit tailored and minimalist. My version of the Athleisure trend, with a classy, fresh spin.
