Comfortable, athletic and stylish is the mantra of the latest urban fashion trends. Re-invented track pants and sporty shoes are no longer confined to your workout sessions. You can now hit the streets with the latest range of streetwear and combine them with your wardrobe regulars for some eclectic combos. Perfect your off-duty look with these essentials.

Comfortable plus Shape - Joggers
Joggers have taken over the wardrobe. Arguably the most comfortable garment you can get into, these upgraded versions of your track pants are no longer a guilty pleasure but a serious fashion statement now. They go with your converse shoes, giving you that grunge vibe. A short jacket and pumps add some sophistication. Buy tracks online and look for vibrant prints to add more life to your casual wardrobe. Jeggings are a popular choice too for those who love the denim shades.

Leg Time - Shorts
Always keep a pair of comfortable shorts or two around. Skin tight or flowing, there is a timeless charm about this simplest of garments. Pair them with some striking Vans or stilettos, and you are suddenly turning those heads. When you buy shorts online, watch the material, stitching and measurements to ensure that the fitting is perfect.

Graphic Tees
Wear your attitude with the unlimited possibilities of graphic tees. Retro designs and fonts are a cool idea to go with your shorts or joggers. Graphic t-shirts are basically a canvas for art, sub-culture and personality and you can pick up the one that speaks your language. India’s top sites like abof have a host of designs, cuts and fittings that suit women of all silhouettes.

Kick Off with Sneakers
Whether they are hi-tops or low-tops or everything in between, a pair of sneakers is the most comfortable of all footwear. White sneakers are the default base of many urban portraits and will go with your jeggings and athletic jacket like a charm. The skirt and sneaker trend is something that is going to stay on for a while, providing more looks to choose from.

Denim Forever
Denim jackets are making a comeback. Whether it is cut above the waist or something flowing, these will go with your tights and sneakers. Dark jeans are a shoo-in for the casual look any day. Exciting combos to try out include sneakers and a denim skirt.

Accessorise with Bags
Bags come in all shapes and sizes with a burst of colours and materials to choose from. Lino Perros has some enigmatic designs that combine classic shapes with compact elements and minimal hardware, ideal for casual occasions. Puma’s Ferrari range of women’s wallets adds to a sporty and vibrant look. Wildcraft is one of India’s favourite outdoors brands. Their new range of backpacks is also very stylish and functional, adding a rugged layer to your streetwear.

The new trends in casual streetwear speak of spunky and independent styles. Mobility is a big theme with athletic fashion along with comfort. Enjoy experimenting with the amalgamation of countless different looks.  The floor is all yours.
