Athleisure Trends of 2018

By Alexandra Schmalzer, Personal Stylist
From leggings and joggers to bras and zip ups, everything is getting extra pocket treatment this year!  So whether you’d like to carry your phone, lipstick, or pepper spray, we’ve got you covered.  A lot of designers are also adding pockets to the back of their leggings to give the illusion of lift.  
When it comes to leggings, grey is the new black!  Don’t ditch your favorite pair, but be sure to find a deep heather grey to add to your essentials.  A lot of the grey leggings have darker stitching and pockets to add interest.  For tops, we’re seeing a lot of cobalt blue, bright orange, printed yellow, and rich burgundy.
This is the year of not looking at sizes!!  Instead, try clothes on for fit.  While your leggings should still be tight, your tops and sweaters should be a contrast.  So even if you usually wear a Medium, you might want to go up a size this year to achieve ‘the look.’
For tanks, choose those that cut in above the bust and have a high neckline.  The jacket trend is to have plenty of style lines and asymmetric closure.  Skirts and dresses should fall just above the knee or between the knee and the ankle.
