Are you ridiculously over-scheduled and always on the go? Women have so many activities in a day: a work out, trekking to the office or playground, meeting friends for drinks, a big date or a book club. The list is endless.
The jam-packed nature of every day demands clothing that can be dressed up and down, from day to dinner, without time for a complete outfit change. Peach clothes are designed to be versatile for gym, work and play, paired with different accessories.
Here’s a fashion-insider secret: a change of shoes is the number one way to remix an outfit for an entirely different use. The most stylish people have mastered this simple trick.
As the Peach Creative Director, my job is to style our clothing in an aspirational way, selecting shoes that are fabulous with the clothes and useful suggestions for your seasonal wardrobe and beyond.
Here are six of the best shoes and sneakers with our Fall 2018 athleisure collection, London Calling. Like our clothing, they are all super-comfy. I’m loving these “investment worthy” styles that are not only chic, but work on repeat with your whole closet.
Fall 2018 –The Best Athleisure Shoes & Sneakers
1. APL (@APL) Athletic Propulsion Labs – Tech Loom Pro
APL was founded in March 2009, by then 23 year-old identical twins Adam and Ryan Goldston. The APL tagline is the “intersection of performance and luxury”. This uber-cool brand of performance footwear is a refreshing alternative to the big household sneaker names. I’m loving the Tech Loom Pro to rock the gym. Keep ’em guessing how you are so up on the hottest kicks.
2. Blondo (@blondo_waterproof) – Gatsby Bootie
The Canada-based Blondo brand has been making fashionable, waterproof footwear since 1910. The Gatsby is a rubber-soled bootie with the comfort of a sneaker, but the polish of boot. A little height from the wedge heel elevates your leggings, jeans and dresses from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Perfect for work or play.
3. Vince (@vince) – Vero Sneaker
Vince like their eponymous contemporary apparel brand, is the master of comfortable, minimalist footwear. Their clean lines have a cool sophistication that pairs beautifully with athleisure apparel. The Vero is the ultimate investment in a slip-on sneaker, disguised as a refined shoe. It will be your go-to, to make gym outfits street-ready or elevate your play looks.
4. Greats (@greatsbrand) – Royale Low Top
Born in Brooklyn, launched in 2013 Greats is shaking up the retro sneaker market with its “quality, purpose-built footwear”, made in Italy. Their superior quality and perfected designs are setting a new standard in classic sneakers. The Royale which comes in a range of colors is refined enough for a casual office. I’m loving the sporty-chic vibe of pure white, with dresses, leggings and jeans year round.
5. Tony Bianco (@tonybianco) – Bello Pointy Toe Bootie
Tony Bianco is a street savvy, contemporary Australian footwear brand.
This bootie will easily become your go-to for transforming looks from day to night or play to work.
Restyle a dress with flats to a slick booted-look for dinner. Switch from sneakers with leggings to boots and a jacket to create an elevated work look. The Bello packs a one-two punch in comfort and versatility.
6. Jeffrey Campbell (@jeffreycampbell)– Siren Bootie
OK, this one isn’t the most versatile style in your closet, but this boot by Jeffrey Campbell, is mood altering and potentially life-changing! Every so often, you should invest in a shoe that is pure-play, scene-stealing, fashion fun. You will be surprised how many people will talk to you when you’re rocking red shoes! Wear statement shoes with simple outfits and let the shoes do the talking.
