TREND MEMO DAY 2: LUXE LEISURE

    STRIPED FLARE PANTS: Gucci (affordable alternates HERE and HERE)  |  TOP: old, similar HERE and HERE  |   RED HANDBAG: Nico Giani  |  SANDALS: Steve Madden  |  SUNGLASSES: Elizabeth and James

Day two of the Fall/Winter Trend Memo is all about the elevated, luxurious leisurewear that’s been dominating the fashion scene.  Athletic-inspired designs have been hitting runways like crazy for the past few years, and this season, designers were doubling down on the trend.



This season’s twist on the ongoing athletic-inspired trend is the added element of luxury—think more formal fabrics and luxe details—making athleisure revamped, re-imagined, and even better than ever.  And I mean, a trend that lets me wear stunners like these on the daily?  Not mad about it.  I’m also not mad about the fact that this trend allows me to go from a Netflix binge sesh to streetstyle chic simply by sliding on a pair of pumps.



WEAR TO WORK

  • Who said side striped pants can’t make a cameo at the office?!  The entire Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo collection is FIRE, but this lace-up side-stripe pant and this tuxedo stripe trouser are two of my favorites.
  • As you’ve seen me style many times, jogger-style dress pants look great with classic pumps for a day at the office (plus these are under $100!)
  • Thanks to this season’s luxurious twist on athleisure, elevated bombers now fall under office-appropos.  This velvet number from J. Crew would be killer with a satin cami and trousers.
  • Athletic-inspiration isn’t only showing up in literal ways (track pants, side stripe trousers, etc.) but also as a more abstract interpretation, such as the line of a jacket or the stripe of a sweater.
