Here's How to Do Athleisure Without Looking Sloppy (Promise)

When the temperatures lower, the stakes get higher in the wardrobe department. Let us explain: Sure, it’s plenty easy to dust off your rotation of cool coats, cozy knit sweaters, and heavy-duty boots once winter officially clocks in. But if you pay close attention, the options start to feel a bit stale, your layers start feeling sloppy, and you notice the energy you put into outfits of previous seasons (where well-mannered weather reigned supreme) may be starting to wane. But fret not! These are the times where you can really put your styling ingenuity to the test and bang out awesome results.

Our search for seasonal outfit inspiration often takes us to unexpected places, and it occurred to us that we had an amazing and up-and-coming resource at our disposal—Grace Rosson, an aspiring stylist who recently had the opportunity to apprentice under fashion editor Zanna Roberts Rassi as part of the #SORELStyle mentorship program. “The idea is to create looks that mix high/low elements so you feel like you could literally throw on the outfit and be set for whatever the day throws at you,” explains Rosson. She continues, “By using contrasting pieces, these looks are visually interesting and express your style.”

Today she’s showing us how to flip the script on two winter outfits that elevate athleisure and street-chic trends by incorporating interesting shapes and elevated pieces.
