It's official: the athleisure trend is still going strong.

And the strength of the sport-inspired sartorial movement means that it's basically guaranteed that we all have at least one pair of track pants in our closets.

But, how do you wear such a sporty style in a more formal setting? By following these three simples steps ...

1. Go dressy on top. Skip the denim topper or a T-shirt in favour of a top that sports some serious style. I love an on-trend pieces with frills or an off-the-shoulder cut (or both together!) like the one I'm wearing above. It keeps the look from coming across as too literal — and oh-so on trend. 

2. Find the perfect fit. Too-tight track pants look like a throwback to younger (read: fitter) days, while a baggy pair looks too literal ... and sloppy. I like a style that's slightly loose but with a tailored, slightly tapered bottom. Throw in a cuff and a great pair of heels for extra polish. 

3. When in doubt, go monochromatic. Opting for one hue immediately ups the style factor of any look — even when the lower half of your look is suited for the gym. 

Happy Wednesday and thank you for stopping by!

Garnier Moisture Bomb Hydrating Mask: A quick review

Garnier Moisture Hydrating Bomb Mask: A quick review

What it is: A hydrating face mask that features hyaluronic acid, pomegranate and "a half of a bottle of hydrating serum."

Beauty bonus: This sheet mask packs a powerful punch of hydration to skin at a price point that's well below it's performance level.

Beauty bummer: The masks are recommended for 15-minute wear. Could be a bit shorter, if we're being super picky.

Overall: Sheet masks continue to be a hot commodity in the skincare realm. And it's easy to see why!

The portable masks (these ones are made of natural cellulose) can be applied at home or — anywhere, really — (we love applying them on a long-haul flight, no matter how weird it looks!) and produce some seriously skin-plumping benefits.

We loved this version from Garnier. From the cooling sensation on the skin to the scent, and the feeling of soft, hydrated skin post-use, it's a complete keeper.

Would recommend? Yes! These masks are worth stocking up on.
Price: $3.99
