I’ve never really been into athleisure until recently. I find myself wearing workout pants and Nikes almost everywhere. I don’t know why, but I feel so cool and chic when I do haha. Plus, motivates me to go to the gym more because I’m already dressed for the occasion- it’s a win/win! So today I’m wearing what I think is my coolest look yet!
I don’t typically wear hoodies or windbreakers, however when I saw this on Forever 21, I was sucked in because of the print on the front and because it’s black and white, which is right up my monochromatic alley. I love the inspiring words on it. When I tried it on I was shocked with how well it fit considering it doesn’t have any stretch(except at the bottom). Also note: I’m wearing a 3x. My first concern was the arms. I have big upper arms and I’m always worried about tops with no stretch, but this had PLENTY of room for movement. Since it’s windbreaker material, it’s super lightweight and roomy.
The pants are your classic black workout pants, but these have slits in the thigh and shin with black mesh inserts. I’m wearing a 3x, however I could have sized down. These are extremely high-waist, which I LOVE in a workout pant. The fabric hasn’t pilled between the thighs yet. I’m saying this because I’ve worn them every day since I got them (don’t judge me) and I’ve washed them 3 times. They hold up pretty well!
Since this is a sporty look, I passed on any major accessory and stuck with pink sunnies and Nikes.
