One of my favorite trends of 2016 is definitely the athleisure look. The "cool girl" trend, as seen on Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, pairs super comfortable pieces like leggings, sweats and classic sneakers with stylish elements to create an ensemble that easily goes from day to night. My go-to piece for the aesthetic is a great pair of joggers, specifically Forever 21's Zippered Moto Joggers. Available in black, charcoal and burgundy, these tapered, skinny-legged sweats with an edgy zipper detail look amazing dressed up or down and are extremely easy to style and won't break your budget — they retail for just $22.90! Read on to see how I styled the Zippered Moto Joggers in 3 ways, featuring pieces under $90.
3 Ways to Wear: Joggers
Daytime Casual: Comfy joggers, easy slip-on sandals and a denim jacket create the perfect look for a laid-back Sunday morning brunch or running errands on the weekend. This look is one of the easiest to recreate since many of these pieces are closet basics that you may already own. I love the fact that this mixes trendy and timeless styles! Plus, the minimalistic look is perfect when you're in a rush but still want to look put together.

Corporate Chic: Rose quartz or blush, whatever you choose to call this shade - I'm obsessed. The perfect pastel for spring paired with rosy gold jewelry, nude tones and bold leopard makes for an essential boss babe outfit that is sure to make you stand out in the workplace. No need to change for drinks with the gals, this outfit has enough glamorous elements to carry you well into happy hour.

Night on the Town: My favorite trend piece to come out of the past year is definitely the cape blazer — it's another versatile power piece that can go from office to happy hour and adds a dramatic touch to any look. I also love the bold pops of royal blue in this outfit, breaking up the monochromatic and neutral aesthetic of this ensemble. I can totally see this being my go-to for drinks with the girls and then, with a quick coat-check for my cape, a night on the dance floor.
