Spring is here, and it is all about the track trouser pant for me. I am all about mixing athleisure trends with unexpected pieces, and this season the track pant has become even more elevated. You are seeing this trend for nights out, and to make it even cooler, pairing it with a crop top and a denim jacket makes it funky and unique. I received this Wrangler jacket this past fall, and I love that it is two tone and cropped. It is the perfect length to go with these high-waisted trousers.
Whether you leave it open or closed, you can pair this piece with a pretty skirt, dress, or even make into a cool denim on denim look. I picked up this bandeau top at a flee market a few years back, but any fun crop that you can find from Topshop to Nordstrom will work!
Not only are these pants dressy, they are fun and loud. They can go with a blouse as well, and definitely a killer heel will make them great for a stand out date night. I wore them with my favorite CK slides from DSW, another big trend. These slides are perfect for after yoga or for a day out.
Some of my other favorite athleisure trends are below, and remember play them up for a night out, and keep them simple for the day!
Yes it is the winter, and yes I am on a pastel sneaker kick right now! This time last year, I was buried under the snow in NYC wearing my snow boots and rain boots all over the city. I do admit, we have had our fair share of winter days in Cali, but really, we can usually wear sneakers year around. To switch it up, I love to find fun and girly athleisure pieces, and right now we are seeing a big trend of pastel sneakers. This I am totally okay with, that small pop of mint or pink makes me smile, and pulling a whole look together just feels happy at this time of the year.
First things first, these Nike Air Max 95 LX kicks are just really dope. I found them at the NIKE X Nordstrom pop up, and they are quickly becoming one of my new favorite sneakers yet. You know that you have found a gem when you get stopped on the street frequently with these on. My birthday is coming up, and I am contemplating wearing them out dancing! Thoughts? As we all know, throwing on a baseball hat is easy for me, and this two tone denim number from Nordstrom feels so 90’s to me.
I have kind of been living in sweatshirts because this cool girl trend makes me feel like it is totally okay. Whether it be from adidas or Nike with a logo, or just easy and plain like this piece from Topshop they are fully on trend. Again, in the spring it will be perfect with my denim shorts and these same kicks.
I am quickly becoming a big fan of changing my leggings from plain jane to having logos or a fun print all over them. These Nike joggers from Macy’s are not only super comfortable, but are kinda just perfect for lounging around the house at night as well. For errands, we know I cannot deal with a big bag half of the time, and this cute and simple gold purse from Nordstrom is under $30 and looks just as great with a little black dress.
Now go out and find a pair of pastel kicks that you love, my recommendations are below!
Yes, the weather is frigid around the country, and I certainly cannot complain that California is much more mild than anywhere on the East Coast. For us, there certainly has been a dip into colder temps, which call for much more layering finally! This season, I am all about showing you how to make your athlesiure look a bit more fancy. I mean, this trend is so fun in so many ways, and being able to funk it up and dress it up, is what fashion is about.
I am all about pairing a cool and on trend sweatshirt, like this one from Fila with a fun leather skirt. This one is from Zara. What I love about this top, is that I wear it with jeans and sweat, but it instantly turns into a night out with the edgy skirt. Try something different and add some fishnet tights to your look. They are cool and fun. This purse from Nordstrom is under $50 and can take any look to the next level.
I have been playing around with the faux fur trend, and this coat is simply fun! I wore it on New Year’s Eve and over the holidays, but that doesn’t mean it cannot carry over. The subtle mix of the whole look, will make people take a double take, and it is perfect to make into a night out look. This one is available at Lulus and is under $100 as well!
Gem crusted kicks! Check and check. Who would have thought that Puma would make a shoe so dancing ready. Jewels on sneakers are big for 2018, so make sure you try out a pair!
Well 2018 is off to a big start, and the athleisure trend is nowhere near going away. For me, the comeback of lines such as adidas originals, Fila, and Champion have taken this to an even more cool girl level. I love the idea of pairing an edgy winter coat with some throwback track pants and cool kicks.
This coat from Guess is one of my favorites that I have purchased all year. It is not only on sale now, but you can take the pink fur on and off, which makes it playful and fun or super simple and clean. I love the faux fur mixed with olive green. I also like wearing it with my track pants from adidas for an edgy athleisure look.
The pull apart track pant is hot for 2018 and you can wear it all year long. Both adidas and Nike have some fun pairs. These are so unique as the white adidas stripe is a show off, and you can mix them up with so many different color ways. For winter I will be wearing them with my coats, but come spring a simple crop tee is perfect with a ball cap.
We all know that any throwback sneakers I can find I want! These rose gold Nike’s I found at their outlet mall on major sale. If you have one in your city, it is a must. They have tons of harder to find pairs. I love that these can be dressed up because of their shine, or paired simply with the track pant. The FORCE logo makes them pop even more. I linked a few pairs that are similar because the metallic trend isn’t going away!
FINALLY, it is cold enough here in Cali to put on a cool coat and rock some fishnet tights with boots. I do not know about you guys, but I have a huge crush on outerwear and probably own way too many jackets, just like my sneakers. This season, besides faux fur, I love a fun leopard print. This one is from J.Crew and right now is totally on sale at 30% off! My other top picks are from ASOS and Topshop. You are even seeing leopard fur on army jackets, and in the linings to add a bit of a funk.
I have also kind of fallen in love with hats this season. I’m usually in a baseball cap or my favorite straw summer hat, so I decided to branch out and purchase a fun beret this season along with a lieutenant hat. I have to say, it totally makes for a fun gift for the on trend girl, and adds a hint of cool girl factor to a look. The one above is only $40 at Nordstrom. If you are feeling frisky, their Brass Plum section has all kinds of bright colors.
I have partnered up with Daniel Wellington this season, who offer some of the best timepieces out there. Not only that, they have all kinds of amazing deals and bundles that they offer. The price point is great, and makes for the perfect gift. From now until December 31st, when you use my code “SUZIG” at checkout, you will get an additional 15% off. Oh, and there are additional discounts, free shipping and returns, and gift wrapping. I mean, it is a one stop shop for everyone on your list!
I also have to say, that the sporty T-shirt dress is here to stay, so why not continue to wear it by layering it the way I did here. Both adidas and Champion have my favorites. The way to make it funky for this season, is definitely with a coat like this and some jazzy fishnets. I love tights, and for me, I always try to find pairs that make my look sparkle.
Yep, these boots were made for walking, dancing, and just about anything this winter. If I am not in kicks, I turn to block style boots, and these have that utility feel to them with a bit of feminine edge. These are from Sam Edelman at Nordstrom, but you can find some amazing deals as well on Zappos. My other favorites right now are Timberlands!
