At this point, we're all familiar with the athletic-inspired trend, or athleisure, as some like to call it. And while most of us are fans, we can understand a couple of the conflicting sentiments others sometimes have. Firstly, it's been around for a while, so if you were an early adopter, we can see how by now, you may be experiencing track-pant fatigue. Next, we know it's not the easiest trend to wear to the office. So with this knowledge and a clothing line at our disposal, can you guess what we did about the trend that's definitely not going anywhere? We updated it with our Who What Wear Silky Track Skirt and made it feel fresh, feminine, flattering, and, most importantly, affordable and accessible—coming in at less than $40 in a range of sizes and two colors nonetheless.
As we've done with some of our other favorite pieces from the collection, today we're giving you an exclusive behind-the-seams look at the inspiration for the piece, straight from our co-founders, Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power. Scroll through to read what they have to say, see the sporty skirt in action, and shop it for yourself.
On their inspiration for the skirt:
"Athleisure is unquestionably here to stay, but we're always looking for fresh ways to wear this trend. Enter the silky track skirt! Fabulously flattering, easy to dress up or down, and casually cool, this skirt offers the perfect way to incorporate a touch of feminine sportiness into your wardrobe. Style it with block-heel sandals and a simple, tucked-in sweater for the office, and then wear it with sneakers and a T-shirt for weekend errands. Either way, it's sure to make you look like a winner." — Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power
