With athleisure making waves all over the runways for the past few seasons, it’s hardly surprising to see zip-ups and track pants making waves in the fashion world. As the latest trend in athleisure, the leisure suit is now enjoying its moment on the Fall 2017 runways. Once considered a cheesy fad leftover from the heyday of the 1990s, the look of an athletic zip-up and matching bottoms has returned for the season ahead. If you want to bring casual comfort to your autumn weekend style, try drawing inspiration from the following designer looks.
If the look of sweatpants and a hoodie isn’t quite for you, try drawing your sartorial cues from Versus Versace instead. The look of a sporty dress in a navy blue colour is a perfect fit for a Saturday afternoon of running errands, and can even transition into the evening hours for a casual night out. We are liking the colourblocked, zippered bodice on this dress, along with the thigh-high slit and the wrap skirt.

Meanwhile, pastel blues were all the rage at Fenty x Puma, for an unexpectedly feminine take on streetwear. The oversized velour suit is back, with broad stripes of white and dark blue. For an accent, a colourful collar necklace and gold chain accessorized the otherwise casual cool look.
With bright red tones making a bold impression this fall, the aesthetic on display at Marc Jacobs certainly fits into the theme. With its striking gold zipper, contrasting beige panels on the sleeves and coordinating baggy bottoms, this suit is both edgy and elegant. For a fashionista approach to the trend, try slipping on a fedora and adding a pair of chunky leather loafers.
