Style Statements Fall and Winter 2019: Layer Customized Athletic Wear
The athleisure wear style trend is not going away anytime soon! Stylish, comfortable, and functional, customized athleisure clothing sales have grown by double-digit percentages for 4 years (16 seasons!) in a row. To sport the look and look like million bucks, the key is layers, layers, and more layers.
Layering Customized Athletic Wear for Ladies
Start with a super cute, colorful tank layered below a scoop or V-neck long sleeve tee. This will show another pop of color at your neckline and draw eyes to your best feature—your face! Next, choose a custom graphic for your custom long sleeve t-shirt that is simple and distressed to give it a vintage SoHo vibe. Finally layer on a cute custom ¼ zip hoodie or custom full-zip hoodie that sports a complementary graphic. New hoodie styles, inlcuding short crops and faded finishes are still popular this season. Look for hoodies and tees made from super-soft tri-blend fabrics or, if you live in a cool climate, consider a plaid flannel shirt or Sherpa vest instead of a hoodie.
For pants, opt for super cute custom flannel fitness pants, like these ones shown above from Bella+Canvas. The slightly flared leg opening looks great on lots of body types! For a super cute retail vibe, add a custom graphic down just one leg.
Layering Customized Athletic Wear for Men
Guys look great when wearing a layered look, too. A simple rule to follow (to make sure you look good and feel comfortable all day long) is layer thin to thick. Start with a bro tank or T-shirt made from a stay-dry sports fabric and layer on a light-weight hoody or crewneck fleece sweatshirt adorned with a cool custom graphic. If its cool outside, top it all off with a light-weight jacket adorned with a custom logo on the chest or sleeve, like this stylish piped track jacket from Bella+Canvas.
For men especially, hoodies are a must-have staple for fall! The go-to colors this fall are gray and grayed browns, but army green, teals, and black are safe bets, too. To prevent sending passers-by straight to the other side of the street while wearing this sportswear staple, keep the hood down unless it’s raining or very cold outside. Finish off the look with your favorite sparkling clean kicks and slim jeans, and you’ve got some street swag.
