How much of your wardrobe has changed since you’ve started working remotely? Has your blazer slowly shifted into a hoodie? Or, has your blouse transformed into a t-shirt paired with sweats? I’ll be the first to admit I’m guilty of a change of attire from my days of dressing up for the office to kicking it on the couch or at my at-home desk setup. However, people have been sporting this type of comfortable aesthetic since the early 2010s into what we know it as today: athleisure wear.
This effortless, active-meets-urban style married the functionality of athletic clothing with the comfort of everyday, causal clothes. It was once seen as the newest fashion trend and quickly became a lifestyle to many people and has been welcomed by those who now living a hybrid work life of in-office and remote work. So, there isn’t a better time for Threads to launch the Rocket Athleisure Collection. And, to help you master the art of athleisure, Threads has a few ways to help you style the collection with the help of some team members!
1. Get Comfortable Outside Your Comfort Zone
Long gone are the days of wearing a thick, stiff suit to the office. In the world of athleisure, more and more people are prioritizing comfort in their style. T-shirts are no longer too causal for the office, sneakers are often paired with suits, and leggings are finally acceptable as pants.
Threads talked with Sharleita Robinson, Product Owner at Amrock, about how she views athleisure. “The best way to describe athleisure is comfort but aesthetic,” she shared. Whenever she puts on a good, comfortable outfit, Sharleita is ready to conquer the day. If you haven’t tried an athleisure look, or if you’re browsing the new Rocket Athleisure Collection and wanting to try a new piece you usually don’t wear, Sharleita shared, “Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone.” By trying something new from the collection, you’ll know you’ll be comfortable in it!
2. Elevate Your Look With Layers
Athleisure is often a minimal, simplified style that avoids overly bold colors and crazy patterns, so how can you still add your own flare? Threads met with Leticia Ferreira, Executive Assistant at Pophouse, for her take on the best way to enhance your athleisure look.
“You can enhance an athleisure look with jewelry, accessories and shoes to change the look of an outfit,” she shared. Leticia often accents her looks with different accessories depending on the occasion she’s wearing it for and enjoys incorporating trendy pieces to make her style pop while also being able to feel comfortable with simpler athleisure pieces. So, elevate your look by accessorizing, layering and playing around with the overall look – you’ll be surprised by how many outfits you can make by switching around pieces or accessories!
3. Confidence Is Your Best Accessory
No matter the occasion, the best accessory that goes with any look you choose is confidence! Threads learned the impact of a good outfit on one’s confidence and mood from Ali Sobh, Regional Vice President at Rock Connections. He shared, “For me, if I really love what I’m wearing I know for a fact I am in a good mood that day. If I get up and I don’t feel great, a nice outfit will brighten up my day. I truly believe that a nice outfit can boost someone’s day and bring them the energy to have a great day.”
Ali is looking forward to pairing a nice pair of kicks with some of the collection’s t-shirts as well as wearing the joggers on his days off for a sportier look, both paired with a fresh boost of confidence.
Now that you know how to master the art of athleisure, head over to the Rocket Athleisure Collection to get your new looks!
