There's no denying that all things "athleisure" have taken the fashion world by storm. Suddenly, wearing leggings as pants, hoodies as tops, and sneakers with dresses is the foolproof way to look like a committed fashion girl. If you haven't dabbled in the world of athleisurly outfits yet, we have a feeling the reasoning behind your procrastination might be that you feel like you'll look like you're trying too hard.

To prove it, we scoured the Instagrams of a few of our favorite bloggers to see how they're styling the athleisure trend this season.

Whether you need a go-to Saturday morning outfit formula or want to figure out a way to style leggings that still looks pulled together, the items this blogger chose create the perfect laid-back and sporty outfit that anyone can re-create.

Dress up track pants effortlessly with a crisp button-down. The addition of a metallic slide still plays into the athleisure vibe while also adding an element of polish.

Statement Coat + Graphic Tee + Leggings + Sneakers


Collage Vintage

Nothing makes a pair of leggings instantly look refined like a statement coat. We love how Sara added some crystal earrings to her casual look to show you really can wear leggings with almost everything.

Natalie Off Duty

Another way to make track pants appear more "normal" in real life is to wear them with pieces you would normally wear with jeans like a denim jacket and ankle boots. Once you start treating your athleisure items like any other item in your closet, great outfits will come your way.

Bomber Jacket + Crop Top + Leggings


Always Judging

The simple addition of forward heels to this almost head-to-toe athleisure outfit is what makes it feel more approachable. Maybe you will feel more comfortable swapping the crop top for a white T-shirt, but either way, never be afraid to mix and match sporty items with elevated ones.

On Courtney Trop: Paco Rabanne Glitter-Effect Ribbed Cropped Top ($251); Paco Rabanne leggings.

Lace Top + Track Pants + Platforms


Happily Grey

This outfit combination perfectly juxtaposes the feminine and sporty qualities our outfits should always aim to possess. There is something about mixing the two that consistently results in a killer look. The proof is in the picture.
