How to: Athleisure by Kate Kohler featuring JD Sports
Athleisure. It’s the global trend we all aspire to rock effortlessly, so how do trendsetters all over the world always manage to make it look so good?
The beauty of activewear is its versatility – done well, it will take you from a coffee date to the airport, keeping you both comfortable and stylish while you’re at it. However, the key to pulling off an athleisure look is all in the detail; a true balancing act between veering too far into sweaty gym staples versus choosing fashion forward pieces that give you the edge.
Luckily, JD Sports has you covered this winter on the athleisure front, and here we’re about to bring you the trends and products you won’t be able to resist.
KATE LOOK ONE:
For the ultimate gym-to-cafe style inspo, opt for high rise Nike Air leggings, a cropped tee and chic hoodie. If your gym attire consists of mostly black, try adding a pop of colour with this cropped tee; it’s high on my wishlist thanks to being fun yet still subtle against black and grey tones. This look is all about the understated hoodie – a Nike Tech Fleece design that keeps you dry and cosy, while the molded, feminine shape hugs the curve of your back. At JD Sports (a.k.a, the ‘King of Trainers’) will help you complete this look with trainers that demand attention: meet the Nike React.
RHYS LOOK ONE:
Layering sweats will become your go-to this winter. Adidas Originals in crisp white and grey tones will take you anywhere – start with the Street 90 Run Crew Sweatshirt, a rib design complete with Trefoil branding to the chest. Layer with the Radkin Full Zip Hoodie, and without overthinking things too much you’ve already complemented the grey tones in the sweatshirt. Complete this look with slim fit cuffed track pants and the retro Continental ’80s trainers, which are soon to become your everyday shoe.
KATE LOOK TWO:
Nike Sportswear Rally Track Pants are the ultimate for a slim fit. This understated khaki colourway will pair nicely with the Nike Versa Long-Sleeve Training Top (also available in grey), both of which are core essentials for frosty winter mornings. Outdoor kinda girl? Look no further than the Nike Essential Woven Jacket; extremely light weight and weather resistant, it’s also perfect for grabbing coffee on the run. Finish things off with new Nike Air Force 1s – exclusively at JD Sports – the luxe sneakers you’ll want to show off with their slightly higher than usual platform.
RHYS LOOK TWO:
Black on black on black. Let’s start with the core essentials; built with their innovative thermal Tech Fleece, these jogger pants allow for easy movement, irresistible comfort and optimum fit. Layer with Nike’s Dri-FIT F.C Soccer Crew Sweatshirt for ultimate street style with a fully detachable front panel (but please don’t take this off – it’s the showpiece!). Add a statement Nike Swoosh Full Zip Hoodie and Nike Air Max 270 kicks to create monochrome magic. Is it wrong that I want this entire look?!
