A Day For “Athleisure,” (or Just Loungewear) If Ever There Were One

Every so often, the opportunity arises for me to discuss my love of one of the words of 2014–“athleisure,” and New Year’s Day is a fresh opportunity. 2015, in my eyes, you are just as ripe for athleisure opportunities as your just-departed predecessor was.

With this category’s burgeoning popularity, the options are only getting more whimsical, more wild, and more fashion. And since you are likely too spent, or as my sister put it in her 5:17 a.m. text to me, “deaded,” to do much of anything, let’s discuss how to spend a day in bed so chicly you don’t even think to question your own decisions.

First off, even though you might not need sneakers today, I feel it’s important to address the fact that these here (aforementioned) Mary Katrantzou for Adidas Originals are now shoppable and I am considering working a night shift to bring them into my lazily-attired life.

As for bottoms, allow me to first suggest these Satin Track Pants by Clu for two simple reasons: 1. I love pretty much everything Clu does, 2. Why wouldn’t you want your weary legs encased in satin?

Also a fan of these chic Rag & Bone sweats which know that a subtle “tuxedo” stripe makes everything better.

If you live alone, in a heated environment I recommend ditching all underpinnings and flying free on this first day/opportunity of 2015. KAIN tank tops are unabashedly sheer (why not?) and feel like baby skin.

Alternatively, you can project your good vibes and intentions into the world via your chest with this “NAMASTE” tank, or really anything from Spiritual Gangster.

Should you need a conservative, or simply warmer look, why not fuse the glam and “it” factor of two icons, Marilyn and Beyoncé with this crewneck sweatshirt.

Let’s also vow to start the new year with fewer callouses because that is always a glam resolution and these are less than $10.00 and deliver aloe directly to your tootsies.

Finally, treat yourself to the fastest route to luxury I’ve ever discovered which is a thick, luscious faux fur blanket.
