Up your athleisure game this winter

Baby, it's cold outside!

We're all about comfort at LükBook, so we're living our best, cosy lives in athleisure wear this winter. 

ICYMI, athleisure is basically an elevated version of activewear - and will take you effortlessly (and comfortably) to brunch, school pick up, or a cheeky shopping trip.  

So, how can we rock athleisure in the colder months? Here are our five tips to help you rock athleisure wear throughout the winter season, keeping you warm, comfortable, and on-trend.

TIP 1 - Embrace luxurious-feeling layers

When the temperature drops, layering becomes essential. You don't want to find yourself shivering in the early morning breeze, or overheating in the middle of the day.

We recommend starting your athleisure look with a moisture-wicking base layer, such as thermal leggings or long-sleeve tops, to keep you warm and dry. Moisture-wicking basically means the fabric is designed to move moisture away from your skin. Next up, add a cosy and oversized hoodie or sweatshirt. For extra warmth, top it off with a lightweight down jacket or a stylish puffer vest. 

In terms of the colourway, you do you, babes! Monochromatic tones, pops of colour or earthy neutrals all looks fantastic. 

TIP 2 - Invest in winter-ready leggings

Upgrade your comfort level with winter-appropriate leggings or tights. There's nothing worse than freezing your derriere off on a metal cafe bench because you donned light-weight, summer leggings. 

We suggest aiming for thick, compression-style leggings, but if you're a southerner you might want to go all in on thermal or fleece-lined leggings that provide extra insulation. Experiment with different textures and patterns, like faux leather or knit leggings, to add interest to your outfit. 

TIP 3 - Accessorise your athleisure with flair

Accessories can elevate your athleisure outfit while keeping you warm. We recommend opting for a chunky knit beanie or a trendy slouchy hat to protect your ears from the chilly breeze. Don't forget to add a cosy scarf. 

Still feeling the icy chill? Complete your look with fingerless gloves or touchscreen-friendly mittens to keep your hands toasty while staying connected.

TIP 4 - Top off your look with stylish outwear

Make a statement with your outerwear while staying cosy. A teddy coat can add a touch of elegance to your athleisure ensemble. Alternatively, opt for a sleek bomber jacket or a quilted vest for a sportier vibe. 

Choose outerwear that allows you to move comfortably and has functional features like hoods, deep pockets, and adjustable waistbands.

TIP 5 - Up your footwear game

Your choice of footwear can make or break your athleisure look. For winter, opt for sneakers with a touch of insulation, such as high-top or shearling-lined sneakers. 

Classic white sneakers are the eternal classic, but also experiment with different colours and textures, like metallic accents or faux fur detailing, to add an element of fun and style to your outfit.

Our pick of stores and websites for finding the perfect kicks are Platypus Shoes, Bared Footwear, and Superga.

The wrap-up (pun intended)!

Don't let the winter chill dampen your athleisure style. By layering strategically, incorporating winter-ready leggings, accessorising with flair, choosing statement outerwear, and rocking stylish sneakers, you can create fashionable and functional athleisure outfits all season long. 

Embrace the versatility of this trend and play with different textures, colours, and patterns to showcase your personal style. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your favourite athleisure pieces, stay cosy, and let your winter athleisure fashion game be on point!
