2016 trends: Athleisure {twinning}

The trends for 2016 - athleisure (twinning)

I’ve been talking a great deal about key fashion trends for 2016 recently and how I have been doing my hardest to seek them out for this season and then add them into my own wardrobe, as a busy Mum of two. There’s been the bomber jacket and the pleated skirt trends; both of which I have adapted into my own style to make work for me.

But one trend that I most certainly can get on board easily and quickly without too much thought (this season) is the ‘Athleisure trend’ – with graphic stripes, bold brights and slogans, with a touch of 80’s retro thrown in too. It can be a very casual and sporty look, which is JUST FINE with me!

I’m thinking weekend leisure and lazy days running errands and pottering around the home.

Once again Next have been super kind and sent Lottie and I some slogan sweaters and some yoga pants for our own take on the athleisure trend. Once again we are twinning! Lottie and I love dressing up in pretty dresses and skirts but we also love to chill out & relax too; wearing comfy clothes whenever possible.

Here we are in our Next slogan sweaters (mine says ‘LUXE’ and Lottie’s says ‘This is my weekend sweatshirt’). Plus our grey & black matching leggings.
