Call it streetwear, freestyle fashion or simply mixing it up, fashion lovers are exploring unexpected combinations of athletic pieces with runway style. Whether you decide to go full on old school, combining a head to toe tracksuit, or inserting a few sporty pieces in an outfit, this trend has some serious street cred.
Stripes are a good place to start (remember the Adidas stripes from the 1990s?). Try low slung pants with a single vertical stripe along the outer thigh, worn with a structured button down shirt to ease into the look.

How To Wear A Crop Top
The tummy bearing trend often crops (no pun intended) up in athleisure wear. If the trend has you in a tizzy, don’t worry. Not solely for the ultra young, here, CSL’s stylists show you three wearable ways to rock this trend.
A casual crop can be worn picking up groceries or shopping at the mall on weekends. Wear with comfortable booties, to complete this look.
2/ Wear to Work
Heading to the office? This look is more covered up and sophisticated. The pointed toe pump with ankle strap finishes off the feminine flow of the skirt.
Reserve this look for a fun gallery opening or party. We love the open toe cage booties, with shorts. For a little more coverage, add a jacket.
