Athleisure is everywhere these days, and it’s no wonder. A genius amalgam of functionality and fashion, it’s all about looks that will take you effortlessly from studio to street, making it the OOTD for soccer moms and CEOs alike. Here are 5 of our faves this fall:
1. Lightweight Sneaks:
This season, look for lightweight sneakers that can be dressed up or down. Whether you pair them with cropped leggings for the gym or skinny jeans at brunch, a wide variety of color and pattern options will suit any taste.
Our pick: Nike Free RN Flyknit Sneaker, $130
2. Compression fabrics:
Looking for an option that will keep you tucked in in all the right places? Check out this fall’s compression fabrics, like Athleta’s new Sculptek line, billed as the Spanx of workout pants. Higher waists and strong support that sucks you in make muffin tops a thing of the past.

This fall is all about bold, eye-catching patterns adorning our leggings. From geometric shapes to animal prints, your stems will definitely get some attention.
