All Day Athleisure : Lockdown Looks
Offering an effortless transition from home office to weekly shop, when it comes to the current daily schedule of most of the world, you can’t really go wrong with a solid selection of athleisure pieces at your disposal. Easily combined with the rest of your wardrobe and offering on-the-go comfort, pieces such as the humble hoodie and unassuming joggers have transcended their loungewear shackles and permeated into just about every area of modern day dressing. Perhaps a tad bit over-dramatic but you get the idea, sweats are proper good, and to show our appreciation we’ve put together three looks to prove our point.
After a long time spent indoors you’d forgive us for breaking out the shorts a little earlier than usual and lets face it this Y-3 two-piece ensemble is the perfect excuse to do it. Made from a super soft 100% cotton fabric and cut to fit slightly oversized to enhance their playful proportions, the pair come presented in a subtle shade of, ‘Hope Lilac’. Kitted out with a selection of pockets including an additional zip pocket to the shorts for peace of mind for those important items, tonal Y-3 logos can be found respectively for a covert finish. Further south, Paul Smith’s High Top Kibby Trainers offer the perfect alternative to face covering obscured expressions. Taking influence from vintage athletic shoes and guaranteed to bring some positive energy to your local supermarket, a contrast smiley motif sits to each side whilst a chunky rubber sole ensures ample support.
- Ralph Lauren Polo Bear Hoodie Marina
- Nike Challenger OG Trainers
- Paul Smith Slim Fit Joggers
- Taion Button Down Best
Unintentionally pairing two of the most iconic animals in the fashion industry, our last look is characterised by insulating layers and graphic heavy visuals. Centering around a Ralph Lauren Polo Bear Hoodie, Taion’s down filled, water repellent and fully packable gilet bulks things out for those days when sweats alone just won’t cut the mustard. With Paul Smith’s slim fit joggers adding a more tailored, intentional take on everyone’s favourite indoor legwear, a pair of Nike Challenger OG’s finish proceedings with that certain je ne sais quoi only made possible by heritage runners.
Street Savvy Shopper
For those with a taste for more street orientated clothing, we’re sure this next ensemble will have something to tickle your fancy. Starting with a cotton rich hoodie from Stussy, a selection of ribbing and a kangaroo pocket can be found to the front, whilst the classic script logo in contrasting blue is sure to cast an instantly recognisable shadow for anyone within excess of 2 metres of your personal space. Decked out in a delightful yellow colour which hints at Springs imminent arrival, a pair of Belstaff’s easy going sweats sit below alongside the dad shoe certified New Balance 574. Top it off with the Hayward 2.0 backpack from Nike and watch your left the bags for life at home nightmares fade away.
