How To Nail The Downtown-Cool Athleisure Look With 4 Key Pieces

Athletic-inspired separates are currently in their golden hour—seen on runways (Chloe Spring 2016) and celebrities (sisters Hadid and Jenner) alike, there’s no time like the present to embrace the casual movement. Comfortable as it may be, though, the style can be daunting—there’s a fine line between looking trend-right and appearing as if you’re headed straight to the gym. Here, we decode how to nail a downtown-cool vibe using four key pieces from Adidas.

Sporty Chic

Hero Item: The Street Sneaker

For an on-trend daytime ensemble, style cool-kid sneakers—such as these Stan Smiths or Adidas' sporty NMD style—with three of spring's key wardrobe essentials: a sleek bodysuit, a bomber jacket and cropped denim.

Hero Item: The Cropped Hoodie

For a night on the town, team a cropped hoodie with leather jogger pants and simple strappy heels. The effect is still a little flirty (thanks to a hint of midriff) while remaining effortlessly cool.

Hero Item: The Track Jacket

A heritage track jacket looks impossibly fresh when styled over a casual LBD. Accessorize with a bright crossbody bag and crisp white tennis shoes, and rock this look to brunch with your girlfriends.

Hero Item: Edgy Leggings

Pull a Kendall Jenner and rely on leggings in place of your go-to skinny jeans—style them with a paper-thin T-shirt and leather jacket to elevate your coffee-run attire.
