Copy Eva Chen’s Cool Girl Style with Athleisure Trend #ZapposStyle

by Kéla Walker

This month Zappos challenged me to create a look around the hugely popular athleisure trend.  Despite my lack of love for workouts and anything athletic, it really wasn’t a much of a challenge considering all I had to do was channel my Kloset Krush and “It” girl Eva Chen for inspiration.  

For those of you who are just cluing into this whole athleisure trend, it’s a real thing and from what I can tell, it’s here to stay. Simply put,  athleisure is a fusion of sportswear and fashion. Think skirts with sneakers or sweatshirts and heels- its the best of both worlds as comfort meets chic.  It’s Tomboy CHIC!!  You’re probably rocking the trend already and just haven’t realized it. Eva Chen is pretty much synonymous with it- she’s like the queen of athleisure. She rocks a a skirt and sneakers like no other.  Gaze over her style and you’ll notice how it starts out all feminine and chic, by the time your eyes reach her footwear you’ll notice the comfy cool kicks. Check out one of my recent favs of her looks.

So when Zappos challenged their influencers  to create an athleisure look this month – it wasn’t difficult for me.  I actually love the trend and have incorporated it into my style roladex.  It so simple to do and I love the downtown cool girl vibe it gives off.

This tie waist skirt is so something Eva would wear

I’m not much of a sneaker girl but slip-on sneakers have changed the game for me, along with visions of Eva’s awesome sneaker collection in her daily #EvaChenPose on Instagram


In fact I’m posting athleisure looks for the rest of the week showing you different ways to pull the trend off with ease. If you’re anthing like me, you’re going to love it and be inspired to try it more often in your style.
