From couch to coffee: Athleisure looks in minutes


From couch to coffee: Athleisure looks in minutes

Finally! Gyms and classes are back and the weather is getting cooler... You know that winter feeling – it’s wet outside, but the girls are waiting, and that coffee isn't going to drink itself. Here’s how to leap straight from the couch to the coffee shop effortlessly, armed with nothing more than athleisure and a dose of flair.

‘Fashion’ track pants are officially 'in'. The latest styles are cropped, elasticated at the ankle or feature retro button-down accents that you can instantly dress up with the right footwear. Tie-die? It's an absolute vibe and Athleisure tights are also more than acceptable to wear with casual, non-gym attire these days.

Sweater weather

Ahh, the humble sweater... These last few months have meant that comfy clothing has replaced anything else we're wearing at home. Need to up the ante? Throw on a chunky knit or cashmere sweather.

Shop the look: Glassons, Max & Portmans.

Fresh kicks

Keep things comfortable by adding next-level sneakers to your café style. Crisp white sneakers are a classic go-to, and fancy high-tops work just as well for that something extra.

BYO cute side piece

And by side piece, we mean an adorable teeny-tiny side bag! You’re heading out for a casual coffee, so all you’ll need is some cash, lip balm and maybe sunnies if you’re sitting outside.

Shop the look: Strand Bags, Kmart.

Top it off with a coat

The perfect coat is all you need to make your outfit look fabulous! The beauty of it is, whatever you have going on underneath – which could be a dinosaur-print flannel onesie for all we know – it won’t matter, because your killer coat conceals all, making your outfit instantly street style-worthy.

Shop the look: Dotti, Decjuba & Max.

Voila! That's how to get away with not changing (too much) out of your comfy home clothes. Comfy vibes all winter long, we say.
