Essential Athleisure Clothes & Shoes Every Woman Needs in Her Closet 

Athleisure isn’t a fleeting fashion trend; it’s a lifestyle that effortlessly blends comfort, functionality, and (most importantly, in our opinion) style! Whether you’re heading to the gym, running errands, or catching up with friends, the right athleisure pieces can make you feel confident and fabulous. To help you start your athleisure collection, we’ve created a list of essential athletic clothes and shoes that everyone should have in their closet. From leggings to sneakers, these staples will make sure you’re always ready to take on your day in style! 

Versatile Leggings

Let’s start with the obvious: every woman needs a pair of dependable leggings. A pair of solid black leggings is the powerhouse of your closet, perfect for any outing from a trip to the dog park to an evening out. Once you’ve locked down your black leggings, the sky’s the limit for your other pairs! Leggings come in every color under the sun, plus tons of different patterns and materials.  

The Masseys™ Everyday Legging is a great base for dozens of stylish and comfy outfits!

For a sporty look you can take to the gym or dog park, pair your favorite leggings with a graphic tee or flowy top and your comfiest sneakers. When it’s time to get dressed up, trade the sneakers for ankle boots and throw on a long sweater or tunic. With a few accessories, you’re ready to go! 

Chic and Functional Tank Tops

Though tank tops can be worn all year long with the right layers, summer is when these tops really shine! You can layer them during the warmer months too, but if you like to let your shoulders enjoy the sunshine, now’s the perfect time. Flowy, loose-fitting tank tops are great both for working out and hanging out due to their breathability. If that’s not your thing, form-fitting tanks are also a great choice that lets you show off your curves. 

Easily dress up the K. Jordan™ Strappy Knit Cami for special events with the Masseys™ Tie-Front Midi Skirt.

Pair your favorite tank tops with moisture-wicking leggings or athletic shorts for a look that’s sure to keep you cool while working out or working in the garden. When it’s time to dress up, tuck a tank top into a maxi skirt and add some heels to elevate the look. For drinks out with the ladies, try a tank top featuring a bold pattern with faux leather leggings or shorts. Be sure to bring along a jean jacket in case it gets chilly! 

Stylish Sweatshirts and Hoodies

We don’t have to tell you why you need a sweatshirt or hoodie (or both!) in your athleisure collection, but we can offer some unique style options! Though summer isn’t exactly sweatshirt season, you can still get your hoodie love in through cropped styles. Oversized sweatshirts are also a great choice for warmer days since you can easily tie them around your waist if you get too warm.  

The K. Jordan™ Waffle Knit Hoodie is a great lightweight option for summer.

For a comfy athletic look, match your hoodie with a pair of joggers or leggings and some street-smart sneakers. Love a matching moment? Vevo Active™ has a variety of athleisure sets that come with everything you need to create a sporty outfit – hoodie included! Jeans also go great with sweatshirts, plus they give you a reason to break out the retro sneakers. 

Trendy Joggers

Joggers are sweatpants’ trendier cousin, making them a must-have for every comfort-loving fashionista. Joggers are often made from the same soft and breathable material as sweatpants but feature a more tapered fit that elevates them slightly. There is so much we can say about how to style this versatile pant, and we did! You can check out our blog post “How to Style Joggers” to get a more in-depth look at the many ways that you can wear joggers, but don’t worry, we’ll cover the basics for you here, too.  

For a simple yet stylish look, pair your black joggers with a plain white tee and layer a jean jacket or flannel over top. If you’d like to try to incorporate a street style vibe to your outfit, swap in a graphic tee and add a pair of bold statement sneakers. There are tons of different ways that you can wear joggers, and they’re all super comfortable!

Comfy Athletic Shoes

With sneakers on the rise as a fashion staple, it’s not hard to include this athleisure essential in your rotation. What you might not realize is that sneakers aren’t your only option! Athletic slip-ons and slides are always great to have on hand for athleisure outfits, especially during the summer. Having a pair of slides you can slip on at a moment’s notice is an unspoken must-have of the hotter months.  

Add some glam to your look with Vevo Active™ Steffi Rhinestone slip-ons.

You can easily find sneakers and slip-ons in every color of the rainbow, but we’d recommend starting with a pair in a neutral color. Black and white go great with everything, making them super easy to style around. On the flip side, if you often wear neutral-colored clothes, sneakers and athletic slides are a great way to add a pop of color to your look.  

Athleisure Essentials for Everyday Comfort

We all wish that we could live in our comfiest clothes, and thanks to the athleisure fashion trend, we can! Stocking your closet with the right essentials opens the door to tons of stylish outfits for all occasions, all of them comfy! You can find a lot of these must-haves from Vevo Active™ as well as other athletic favorites like Under Armour and PUMA right here at Masseys.
