If there’s one trend that’s reigned supreme over the last few seasons, it’s athleisure—we’re talking sneakers, track pants, hoodies, and everything in between. Looking for new ways to test out the look? That’s where athleisure enthusiast Anaa Saber comes in. In her new column for Who What Wear, the fashion girl behind @oursecondskin will offer up her best styling tricks for those of you looking to inject this cool trend into your everyday lives.
Compared to previous years, Copenhagen Fashion Week proved to be one of the buzzier occasions of the season. Especially with brands taking new creative direction—as in the J.Lindeberg showing and, of course, heartthrob brands like Ganni, Saks Potts, and Cecilie Bahnsen—Copenhagen Fashion Week became the sort of occasion nobody wanted to miss.
If Scandinavian fashion has taught us one thing over the years, it’s that floral dresses and softer silhouettes reign supreme. But this year, Copenhagen Fashion Week was one to remember, and not just because it was my first time attending the burgeoning, trend-forward scene in person. As an athleisure enthusiast, what with the trend at its utmost height, I wanted to see the influence it would have on the Scandinavian design scene firsthand, and let me tell you: I was more than impressed.
Between noteworthy street style moments—picture Haviannas with fancy printed dresses—elaborate set designs, and warehouses to waterfront views, what really stole my heart were the combinations of beautiful silhouettes paired harmoniously with edgy hints of sport and athletic influences. With all that said, behold my most noteworthy athleisure takeaways from S/S 19 Copenhagen Fashion Week. Considering how much hype this fashion week created, it’s safe to assume the six athleisure trends ahead will be everywhere come 2019, so get ready.
