Athleisure Wear Over 50 – The Style Edit
Happy Wednesday, ladies. It’s not an overstatement to say that many of us are rethinking our fitness goals this time of year. You’re either thrilled with yours and seeing fabulous results or you fall off the wagon like I do and need to revisit your commitment. For this month’s Over 50 Fashion Edit, Cindy and I are being joined by Rhoda from Southern Hospitality and we’re sharing our thoughts on exercise and athleisure wear over 50.
For many of us, there’s not a big difference between what we wear on a daily basis and what we wear to exercise. I’m not one of those gals so today I’m sharing what I wear for my walks, followed by stretching then some online classes. For me, looking the part, helps me feel motivated.
I have long arms and usually need the regular size in tops, but this hoodie is so long, I had to order the petite which fits perfectly. It’s really cozy and warm. It comes in misses, petite, women’s and tall, sizes XS-XL. The top is a dolman sleeve from the Wearever Collection which is becoming a fav. It comes in a gray snake print pattern or this clear blue which is on sale.
My pants are the Fit On The Go Slim Leg and so comfy. I have several pairs of these lightweight, woven athleisure pants and love that they can take you shopping with a change of shoes and by adding some accessories.
My Apple EarPods are constantly falling out of my ears no matter what size of the silicone tips I use. It drives me crazy so I was thrilled to find these ingenious little ear hooks that keep them in my ears. If mine fall out while I’m fast-walking, how do people keep them in while jogging? For under $13, they’re worth their weight in gold.
I don’t jog, so my shoes don’t need to be super special. I love my All Birds for casual days when I am not tearing up the sidewalk. They’re made from a lightweight, breathable eucalyptus fiber that’s super flexible. The tops are knit so they stretch over my bunion, plus they’re machine washable. White or light-colored sneakers are always a challenge for me unless I can wash them. They come in tons of colors and styles. They even make no-slip water-repellent sneakers.
When I’m going on a fast walk my shoes of choice are these New Balance Runners. They also have a knit top and are really cushiony. When the sun is out, I wear a hat. Lately, it’s been this one because it has a chin strap and we’ve been having a lot of wind. I always wear sunglasses, even when it’s not bright because they seem to help with watery eyes.
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
