Fall Fitness Fashion Ideas

The arrival of the fall season ushers in cooler weather, cozy evenings indoors, the luscious scent of pumpkin spice, and more. As the days begin to grow shorter, and evenings become cooler, you may find yourself less motivated to want to leave the comfort of home to work out. However, simple active wear style tips will help keep you comfy and warm, allowing you to power through your workout despite colder temperatures.


From the fitness studio to the streets


Athleisure is a simple, versatile and relaxed approach to fall fashion. The ever-popular yoga-inspired looks of leggings and comfy pullovers are multipurpose enough to take any look from the gym to the streets with the addition of simple accessories. A stylish scarf can easily dress up any simple pullover or sweatshirt. Not the mention, adding a shawl or pashmina to your athleisure outfit will provide extra warmth on those cool fall days. A cute pair of shades or a set of bangle bracelets will also help pull off an effortless athleisure look.


Layer up


As the summer transitions into autumn, so too should your wardrobe. Just because your cute sun dresses and tank tops are hibernating in the back of your closet doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on your style. Athleisure allows you to create a layered look which is easy to change up and tweak depending on your style preferences. For example, you could wear a colorful mesh workout tank underneath a flowy yoga shrug pullover. Layering various athleisure items allows you to mix and match different pieces to create a signature fitness look.


Keep it simple


Minimalism in fashion is very much on trend. Monochromatic looks either in a black, white, or various shade of grey give off an uncomplicated, easy vibe. Pulling off a monochromatic look is simple when including various fabrics and textures. Black mesh-insert leggings show off a bit of skin while keeping your legs warm. Pair a chunky cable knit sweater along with sporty sneakers in a similar black shade to pull off a harmonious unicolor look.


Experiment and expand your style


As athleisure has become a staple in the fashion world, many clothing brands now design and manufacture athletic-inspired clothing items in various sizes, fabrics, colors, and designs that appeal to everyone. These days, you will be sure to find everything from yoga pants, sports bras, sweatshirts, and sneakers that will appeal to your style and preference. As athleisure articles are fairly easy to come by, feel free to experiment with new colors, cuts, and designs. For instance, if you find yourself always gravitating towards black leggings, take a fun fashion risk and try out leggings in a fall-appropriate hue such as burgundy or deep navy. Chances are, you will be thoroughly delighted with a little extra (pumpkin) spice to your autumn athleisure wardrobe.
