What is “Athleisure”?

Athleisure is a growing phenomenon of incorporating laid-back, sportswear style into your everyday wardrobe. If you’re a baseball lover, what better way to embrace the beginning of Major League Baseball season than by embracing sporty styles? Even if you’re a sleek sartorialist by day, you can embrace athleisure at the end of the day, over the weekend or to wear at that all-important baseball game. It’s impossibly comfortable, chic and perfect for both men and women.

The Sports Bag

Athleisure at its finest just wouldn’t be complete without a premium quality, preppy sports bag. Whether you choose a robust, sporty canvas piece or a sleek leather duffle bag, the sports bag is a welcomed addition to any athleisure ensemble. We’d fully recommend The Giovane M for a lightweight, luxury holdall that is guaranteed to turn heads. With a blue canvas and tan leather exterior, The Giovane will complement almost any outfit.

The Dino M is also a popular choice – choose from a dark chocolate design with contrasting green stripes, or sleek black with red stripes. Super sporty, yet still remains true to our much-loved, signature, full-grain Italian leather designs.

The Polo Shirt

Kate Middleton

Even the impeccably-dressed British Royal, Kate Middleton, is partial to a polo shirt. A popular piece for both office wear and athleisure wear, the polo shirt is lightweight, sporty and fresh. Perfect for the office, the school run or a sporting event, the polo is incredibly versatile and is a staple athleisure piece that we could all do with adding to our capsule collection. From the long-sleeved, baseball inspired jersey to the capped sleeve, traditional polo shirt, there’s a sporty top that is suitable for all, making for an easy introduction to day-to-day sportswear.

The High-Top Sneakers

Shake off those heels or smart shoes and substitute them for a pair of comfy sneakers. Although high-top sneakers may be more basketball than baseball, they’re essential for rocking the athleisure trend. Seen on many A-listers, often paired with denim jeans or cropped sweatpants, they’re comfy and super stylish. Opt for a style with stripes as a homage to baseball uniform staples, and you’re good to go.

The Baseball Bomber


Whether you call it a baseball jacket, varsity jacket or sports bomber, everyone loves a baseball-inspired bomber jacket. Popular with fashion influencers and celebrities, and as a resurfacing piece on the catwalk over the years, you can’t go wrong with the varsity bomber. The epitome of athleisure wear, it exudes confidence, a laid-back attitude and effortless style. Looks great with chinos, cropped pants, jeans or sweatpants. For him, team with brogues for a sartorial twist, or sneakers to perfect the dressed-down ensemble. For her, mix and match your sporty bomber with cropped pants and heels, for a fun, feminine look.
