If you know me well a pair of Keds is definitely not my go to shoe. But I’ve changed my mind! The Athleisure trend is something I am really liking right now! Read on to get more details of this model off duty meets date night look!
The Athleisure trend has definitely picked up considerable steam. With famous supermodels like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Karlie Kloss sporting the look, its popularity has definitely skyrocketed! Now, those are some tall girls and I’m really petite. So I obviously had my doubts. Will it suit me? How should I style it? After thinking it through, I still wasn’t sure. Then I went shopping at Zara and saw this gorgeous pair of metallic plimsolls and I decided I was going to take the leap!
With the plimsolls I was losing the inches my heels give me, precious inches that a five foot nothing girl needs! That’s when it struck me, I was going to pair my gorgeous new plimsolls with a pair of shorts! That gave the illusion of longer legs without actually having long legs 😀
I have paired a bright pink top with a pair of floral shorts, both from J.Crew. The look is cute, casual and oh so comfortable! Perfect for a day date! When paired with the metallic plimsolls, it all comes together forming a lovely day look! The plimsolls are so comfortable, I wonder if I ever want to return to heels 🙂 Carrying a metallic J.Crew clutch added a slight touch of classiness to the look. Completing this look was easy, I picked my beautiful statement necklace from ASOS. I absolutely love this stunning piece!
But like all good things, this comfy trend needs a happy medium. The sportswear-meets-street wear blend is definitely tricky so make sure to keep the balance girls! I will definitely be exploring this trend more during the summer 🙂 So keep an eye out for more looks! In the mean time enjoy this model off duty look for your next OOTD!
