The Top Athleisure Trends for Fall 2017

While the sunny days of summer are officially behind us, our favorite athleisure trends are getting a fresh face for fall. This season, we’re incorporating new styles into our activewear arsenal – from bold prints and feminine fabrics to sporty accents and cool color palettes. Whether you’re sweating it out in spin class or hitting the streets post-shavasana, these athletic-inspired separates should be staples in your autumn wardrobe.

When deciding what to sport for your regular sweat sesh, it’s important to opt for activewear that’s both trendy and practical. The mesh details on these leggings and workout tee are eye-catching, but they also provide ventilation to keep you cool during your exercises. A printed legging with an accent color adds extra interest to your look, while supportive (and cute!) New Balance sneakers complete the outfit in style.

We know feminine florals are a huge trend for fall, so why not incorporate the print into your athletic attire? These printed leggings look great when paired with a solid, tunic-style tank – especially when the top complements the pattern’s bold hues. Finish off your outfit with a colorful, distressed baseball cap for a casual vibe that’ll take you from the treadmill to the coffee shop.

Want to rock a sporty look while sipping cider at the apple orchard? Opt for the street-style version of this fall’s athleisure trend. Light wash jeans with a side stripe give off an instantly athletic vibe and this lacy crew neck sweatshirt is active-inspired through and through. It’s the perfect juxtaposition of dressy and casual, so you can finish the look with fall booties, flats or everyday sneakers.

Whether you’re dressing for a cozy weekend or hitting the farmer’s market downtown, this hockey-style hoodie is an active-inspired essential. Go the full-on athleisure route by adding leggings and your favorite sneakers, or make the outfit more runway-ready by adding skinny jeans and ankle boots. No accessories are needed when it comes to this sporty look – the detailed lace-up neckline does the job all on its own.

Ready to “up” your athleisure game more than ever before? Check out the best ways to style your everyday sneakers for fall.

The 5 Best Ways to Wear Camo Print this Fall

As fall transitions us to cooler months, we’re partnering with our favorite style bloggers to show us how they wear this season’s hottest trends. From fashion tips and makeup trends to hairstyles and home décor, we’re excited to see how these stylistas gear up for fall weather. This week, we’re welcoming Candace of Live Love & Read to share the five best ways to style camouflage – the trendiest print of fall 2017.

With New York Fashion Week (NYFW) behind us and summer making its official exit, I think it’s safe to say that we can officially focus on all things FALL. After all, for the budget-conscious fashionista, it is important to wait and see which trends get the most love from the NYFW street style scene, so you know which ones you need to invest in for your autumn wardrobe.

From the boldest of reds to couch print florals to velvet, there’s a lot of good stuff happening in the fashion department this fall. You may or may not be ready for this, but one of the most notable trends of the season is CAMO. The renaissance of this pattern started making its way down the fashion pipelines last fall and made an impressionable impact, which explains how and why camo is an IT trend for 2017.

I know, living on the “wild” side and wearing bold prints (like camo) can be scary. The good news is there are a variety of ways you can approach styling this trend without looking too “avant-garde.” Also, for my classic-natural gals who are currently thinking, “I would never wear camo,” I’m happy to report that this is your PERFECT print, as it combines all those great natural colors you love!

Ok, enough shop talk, let’s get some visual inspiration. Here are 5 ways you can rock camo for fall 2017.

#1: CAMO WITH A TOUCH OF FEMININITY

As a stylist, one of the complaints I’ve often heard about camo is that it feels too masculine. Trust me, I get it – it’s hard to disassociate camo print from military toughness. But here are two things to remind yourself:

1. Incorporating masculine-esque pieces is totally okay. In fact, it’s encouraged to create some contrast in your look.

2. You can also add ultra-feminine pieces to soften a look or trend.

For this look, I’ve paired a silk lace-trimmed top with camo denim. Nothing screams femininity quite like silk and lace. Coordinating supple fabrics with a bold camo print is a great way to approach this must-have trend. For finishing touches, I incorporated a gold statement earring, another big trend for fall 2017, and a soft brown lip to help balance the overall tone of this outfit.

#2: MONOCHROMATIC  CAMO

One of the things I love most about camo is the richness of neutral colors. Shades of green, tan and brown all combined are a neutral fashionista’s dream. Considering the colors that make up camouflage, another great way you can approach this trend is monochromatically.

For this tone-on-tone look, I paired an embellished camo pocket tee with a complementary colored silk textured pant. The great thing about this look is that the camo is confined to the pocket detail, which is a great option for those of you who prefer a subtler approach to bold prints.

Another great about this look is that I’ve incorporated a more pajama-like trouser, which allows you to capitalize on two trends at once: the camo trend and the pajama trend.

With a monochromatic concept, it’s important to add a pop of color to your look. You can do that by adding a bold lip color!

#3: CAMO COLOR CHANGE UP

Not everyone is crazy about the rich green that is often found in the camo print. If that’s you, then I want to encourage you to do a camo color change-up. You can opt for a lighter shade!

This camo printed tee combines green and blue to create a lighter shade, which makes it the perfect option for those who want something bold, yet soft and approachable.

To complete this look, I paired the printed tee with black skinny jeans and brass gold statement earrings that have a touch of light blue to further accent the shirt’s base colors.

#4: RELAXED CAMO MOTO

Looking to approach the camo trend in a more relaxed way? A camo moto legging is an easy way to achieve both comfort and style. Considering that this particular camo print is smaller than the type from Look 1, I opted to layer with a solid colored tunic. For a touch of feminine flare, the ruffle detail on the sleeve is a great way to pull everything in.

To complete this look, as well as bring in a little extra color, I finished it with a rose gold double layered hoop.

#5: ATHLETIC-INSPIRED CAMO

Continuing with the relaxed approach to camo, making an athletic-inspired look is another suitable way to tackle this trend for fall. Rather than opting for an athleisure pant, go for a printed camo dress and layer it accordingly.

This long hooded cardigan is the perfect pair for this skater dress. With trend colors in mind for fall, go for the dark green layering piece rather than tan or light brown.  As you would suspect, darker greens are a big deal this season.

And there you have it, 5 solid ways you can own the camo trend this fall. As you navigate this trend and incorporate it into your wardrobe, remember that there’s nothing wrong with living a bold and stylish life.
