Introducing Bloomingdale’s Short Hills Athleisure

Looking for a comfortable yet chic outfit to rock at the Komen North Jersey Race for the Cure this Sunday? #HipNJ and Bloomingdale’s Short Hills is here to help!

Maria Falzo joins stylist Felicia Geller to launch the department store’s new Athleisure department. Athleisure is a very popular fashion trend right now; it is clothing that is designed for workouts but can also be worn on a day-to-day basis. This department incorporates the hottest trends in fashion including patches, tropical prints, and denim joggers. Felicia teaches Maria how to pull off the Athleisure look!

Athleisure Look 1

Top and leggings by Sweaty Betty; jacket by Maje, $480.00; Bloomingdale’s

Maria’s first look is a classic workout outfit. She is wearing Sweaty Betty leggings which are reversible. Reversible leggings have a different pattern on each side and are super convenient because you can wear them twice without people noticing that they are the same pair! Maria is also dressed in a loose-fitted Sweaty Betty top. She is sporting a Maje jacket and a pair of brightly colored Nike sneakers.

Next, Felicia dresses Maria in a more fashionable workout outfit. Maria is wearing leggings from FENTY Puma x Rihanna.  Maria is also wearing a Sweaty Betty top, Alo Yoga jacket and Puma sneakers with bows, which add glamour to this athletic look.

The third outfit Felicia picks out highlights the fashion-forward nature of Athleisure trends. Felicia suggests changing from a pair of workout leggings to a pair of Vince Camuto pants. These pants are great because they have a wider leg which gives the outfit more of a professional feel. The bomber jacket is from J.O.A., and is featuring this season’s embroidery trend. Maria is also wearing sneakers by Stuart Weitzman and a gym bag from Adidas by Stella McCartney.

Marc by Marc Jacobs

The next outfit Felicia selects features a jacket by Aqua. Underneath the jacket, Maria is wearing a sweatshirt by Maje. Tropical prints are very “in” right now so the parrots are right on trend! Maria is also carrying a beautiful patch work bag from Marc Jacobs. This outfit is completed by a pair of denim joggers by Sweaty Betty.

Felicia’s final outfit for Maria is a perfect example of how to fuse fashion and function. Maria layers a Theory sweater with a Pho sweatshirt. Maria is wearing joggers by ATM. They are silk so they can be worn casually but if paired with the right pair of heels, can also be worn on a night out! Felicia adds a M.Z. Wallace bag and Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers to accessorize.

To shop these looks head over to The Mall at Short Hills and check out Bloomingdale’s Athleisure department!
