How I Wore It: Fall Athleisure Fashion

Fall Athleisure Fashion - Janelle Powell

A common theme you will immediately notice in my outfit choices is “Athleisure”. While I love being dressed to the 9’s, and a sexy pair of heels as much as the next fashionista, I also really enjoy being comfortable while looking fashionable. This is even more so important to me now that I’m a mom. A lot of the styles just aren’t always practical for being a mom to an energetic toddler on the go.

For this look, I paired a simple Adidas Originals sweatshirt, a faux leather mini skirt, and a classic pair of Adidas Superstar

The sweatshirt is lightweight enough that it won’t keep you hot on a warmer day but thick enough that it will keep the chill at bay on colder days. This piece is definitely is a classic that can be worn so many different ways – with distressed denim, shorts, midi-skirts etc.

The faux leather mini-skirt I chose because I felt like it added a little rebellious edge to the classic sweatshirt. The skirt also serves up a nice dose of sex appeal by showing some leg. This is a great pairing because on warmer fall days it allows your legs to be open. On chillier days you can opt to pair the skirt with fishnet stockings or any cool patterned stocking for that matter to create a barrier between your skin and the elements. The skirt also lends the versatility of being able to be worn in a plethora of ways. Admittedly, this is an H&M skirt circa 2014 so this exact version won’t be available in stores anymore. However, faux leather mini’s are a fall and winter staple so you’ll surely be able to find an alternate version in your fave store.

Adidas Originals Superstar – Women’s

The women’s Adidas Superstar in white & black is definitely one of my most favourite sneakers to date and was featured on my list of Top 5 Sneakers to add a little athleisure to your wardrobe. It is a classic in every way and a great staple in any woman’s wardrobe – it’s a crisp white shoe, that adds the perfect touch of athletic, and style to your look. They are also extremely comfortable. You can’t go wrong owning a pair of these.
