Let’s get technical: workleisure looks



Wearing sweatpants to work still is frowned upon, but thanks to the new "workleisure" trend, the comfy, breathable fabrics that characterize workout and sports gear meet laid-back yet office-appropriate tops and bottoms. Pair reflective panels and dry-weave materials with structured touches like blazers and minimalist accessories to complete the gym-to-work-to-lounge look.

Start with a racer-back tank, $45 at Bayou Bicycles and add a cotton-blend blazer, $149, and beaded rough-cut gemstone necklace, $68, both at Swoon Boutique; pair that with faux leather leggings by Spanx, $98, suede booties by Lucky Brand, $128, and a water- and stain-resistant watercolor print tote by Go! Sac, $45, all at Fini.

Comfort and style come together in a vented moisture-wicking shirt by Columbia, $64; pants made for rugged activities, $68.99; hemp moccasins by Merrell, $79.99; and a weather-resistant backpack by Herschel, $74.99; all at Massey's Outfitters.

Stay dry in a merino wool sweater, $160, and shorts with reflective panels, $80, both by Shasta; sport shoes by Specialized, $100; and a tweed messenger bag, $65; all at Bayou Bicycles. Finish the look with a black leather belt by Mission Belt Co., $34.99 at Massey's Outfitters.

A sleeveless white tunic, $58, and ruched windbreaker vest, $164, top mid-rise stretch cotton pants, $118. The look is refined with a gold vermeil and stone choker, $34, and knotted silk and crystal necklace, $38, all at gae-tana's. Suede-capped metallic tennis shoes, $119 at Fini and an attache case by Stephanie Johnson, $88 at Swoon Boutique take the outfit to work and beyond.
