FASHION: COOL & CASUAL
When you hear the word ‘athleisure’, what comes to mind? A look that says ‘straight from the gym’? Well, you don’t have to go that route – pair your trainers and tees with retro prints, feminine silhouettes and a bit of sparkle for an offbeat romantic twi
With this sporty ensemble you’d usually reach for a pair of pants; instead, go for something a bit unexpected, like a pleated skirt with a bit of movement.
Not sure how to wear a shiny, quilted, multi-coloured bomber? Stick to the same tonal range for the rest of the look and throw in another metallic, just for fun.
A knitted golf T-shirt feels less prim with this playful pairing. This skirt shows off some leg and the two retro patterns seem like they would clash, but the look works!
SET FOR LIFE
The perfect twinset to dress up or down. Wear it with a tee and some dad sneakers for a casual look, or team the jacket with a pleated skirt and a pair of heels for dinner and drinks.
Add a bit of fun to this formal pleated dress by sneaking in a pair of bright orange high-tops.
Sequins get a daytime makeover with this fun tee. Wear it with big, bold hoops and a printed jacket for contrast.
SHOW ON THE ROAD
Running errands? What could be easier than throwing on a breezy dress and a pair of sneakers? Cinch it in at the waist with a colourful belt to give it some shape.
That ’90s nostalgia T-shirt isn’t just for mooching around the house in. Dress it up with a ladylike skirt and some über colourful statement earrings.
IN THE MIX
Don’t be scared to mix your prints – the key is to stay within the same colour family.
