header2

Athleisure, activewear, what-have-you.  All we know is that the trend is in AND it is comfortable.  It’s a win-win situation that will have you adding to your collection on the reg.  However, if you are unsure of how to pull off this style, we are here to show you where to start!  Keep reading to check out some of our activewear styles from Mono B Clothing.

The greatest thing about active wear clothing is that you can go from brunch, to class, to running errands, and to the gym all in one outfit! Or if you’re like us, trick people into thinking you are headed to the gym when in fact you are headed home from class to watch 8 hours of Netflix…  You are totally capable of looking put together in leggings and a pullover without looking like a bum.

First things first: leggings. You can NEVER have too many pairs.  Anyone who tells you otherwise, well, they’re just plain wrong. We have recently gotten in so many cute and trendy pairs of leggings and you definitely need one of each pair! These leggings are made with a comfortable stretch fabric that is perfect for lounging or cardio. With different designs, lengths, and colors, you will easily be able to mix and match with your wardrobe day to day.

If you want to be SUPER trendy and put-together, buy an active-wear set! These sports bra crop tops are perfect for the warmer months coming up.  They come in cute matching prints as some of the leggings we carry and feature a comfortable, padded construction. Not comfortable with wearing only the crop top and leggings? Throw on a basic tee or tank over the sports bra and you’re all set.  For chilly or windy days, invest in a neutral windbreaker or athleisure pullover.  With muted tones and a simple design, your look will go from bleak to chic in no time.

Last, but certainly not least, you will need to invest in a neutral, comfy, and dependable pair of tennis shoes to complete your look! These shoes will be able to take you through the day in style from your morning coffee runs to your gym workouts at night.  Also, try Boho Bandeaus or Teleties to pull your hair back in a messy bun when you decided to hit snooze for the fifth time before class that day.

Look Ahead: Mens Trends for Spring 2015

Let’s take a look ahead to upcoming mens trends for Spring 2015.

Americana

Americana seems to be a reoccurring trend pulling from past generations of the hard working American man with a love for his country.

Prep and Nautical

Both Prep and Nautical trends will be seen this Spring.

Brands including Vineyard Vines, Southern Shirt Company, 1897 and Sperry Top Sider will be leading this trend in menswear at Glik’s. The Preppy look isn’t just long sleeve pastel pullovers or gingham button-downs paired with flat front khaki shorts and Sperry Top-Siders. This trend has expanded to include patriotic graphic tees (Rowdy Gentleman) worn with chinos and Vans.

Both styles are clean-cut with an emphasis of a preppy lifestyle.  Watch for plaid button downs or polo shirts with bright pops of color in red or mint.

And as the Nautical trend sets sail, it’s going to find its home within the Preppy lifestyle. So be on the lookout for anchors and stripes (particularly navy and white) within this trend. But don’t be afraid to think outside the yacht, Hawaiian printed shirts, cardigans and blazers are a fun way to switch things up a bit.

Activewear

Fitness is booming right now, so it should come as no surprise that activewear has become huge in the fashion industry.

Must-have accessories to beat the heat

Shades and croakies are for the active man. Whether it be a round of golf with the boys or a game of volleyball at the beach, you won’t lose your cool with these accessories.

After your fun in the sun, fire up the grill and crack open some cold ones with a koozie in hand and, of course, a beeracuda to keep those brews ice-cold.
