Off-Duty Wardrobe

Off-Duty Wardrobe

Il faut que je vous avoue un truc …

Dernièrement, mes tenues « off-duty » du weekend se limitent exclusivement à des fringues sportswear.

Bon, si je vais à un brunch ou que j’ai un vrai plan – autre que d’aller zoner deux heures chez Sephora avant d’aller au marché bio -, je fais un effort. Mais la plupart du temps, je me balade en legging et en sweat (je ne sais pas pourquoi j’ai autant de mal à enfiler un jean le samedi matin, mais c’est un fait) , l’air de la fille qui sort de la gym (sauf qu’en général, la probabilité que j’en sorte vraiment est de 0,092 %). J’espère que les gens s’imaginent que je viens de faire mes 15 km de jogging (tout ça avec élégance et sudation minimale) et que je passe juste m’acheter un peu de Terracotta avant de rentrer chez moi.

J’aimerais avoir l’air un peu plus cool quand je fais mes courses tout en donnant l’illusion que je suis une une star de l’athlétisme. Mon inspiration ? La nouvelle collection Theory 38.

J’aime les coupes épurées et l’allure un peu sportswear des tenues. C’est vraiment un cran au-dessus de toutes mes fringues informes et j’envisage vraiment de les adopter pour mes virées shopping à venir chez Sephora.

Et vous, quel est votre look off-duty ?

    It consists of leggings and a shirt dress with statement jewelry so I look “put” together. =)

    - Leather shorts from Zara
    - Really cool tshirt from http://www.catchy.fr
    - Aviators sunglasses (even when it’s pitch dark because the sun is on holidays in Paris)

    Mine is a shirt. An extremely oversized man’s shirt. I wear it around the house all day, and if i need to go out to pick up something at the sweet shop, i just put on a pair of tights and some vintage boots.. It make me look like i’m going for an edgy/i don’t really care that much look.. Not the best, but good enough for me..
    I can’t stand sport wear, to the point where i actually exercise in normal clothing… but then again, i don’t do that much sport, so it might be that i don’t really see the need..

    I’m quite into the elegant sport dressing, I am mad about shirts right now, so when I’m not in college using shirts I like leggings (black plain) and a huge cardigan kinda eighties chic…

    Ces looks sont vraiment cool! Quand à moi, mon look of duty c’est un jean boyfriend (j’adore, j’aimerais ne porter que ça) avec un t-shirt et des slippers!

    anything white no matter how over sized or wrinkled or borrowed from your boyfriend always conveys chic!! PS: I’m always totally jealous of how cute and perfect those gym clothes wearing people can look.

    Alors moi le jog j’ai l’impression de pas reussir a me reveiller si je le porte toute la journée ! Jean + Tee quoi qu’il arrive, meme en brunch après j’ajuste les accessoires en fonction…

    J’aime beaucoup Theory 28 !

    LOL love this. I can so relate. Except sometimes I actually did have a fitness class in the morning and hoped people would assume that. But if you have a great wardrobe, show it off!

  • Debbie 16 mai 2013, 3:01 / Répondre

    What’s funny is that good workout gear (I’m talking pants mostly) can double as casual weekend wear – sadly enough. I find myself doing the same sometimes but try to snap out of it and pull myself together with at least a pair of jeans. Just seems lazy otherwise but Sundays……they should be lazy right?

    I like to think that my off-duty wardrobe exudes cool downtown yet uptown Alexander Wang style instead of a rejected Carrie Bradshaw outfit which is what I always fear.

    une robe lacoste et des sneakers “bateau” armistice pour le coté glam tout en gardant le confort !
    l’austerité chic quoi !

  • Newborn Fanatic 16 mai 2013, 4:38 / Répondre

    Guilty too! I’m always wearing shorts and shirts. Preferably gym shorts and I love wearing sneakers every day. I have this weird hatred towards callused feet so I try to not wear heels or sandals. And I hate it when my feet gets dirty so sneakers or boots are the perfect solution! :)
    P.S. I’m really starting to like the black Nike Frees! I was originally planning on getting the neon colored ones but now I’m seriously gearing towards just plain old black. I just feel guilty for getting black sneakers because I own so many black stuff already. Any thoughts or advice anyone? :P

    I ask myself the same question not just on weekends, but weekdays too. How to make comfy look stylish and at the same time an outfit that makes me feel good and not guilty that I didn’t dress up. I also like T by Alexander Wang for just this purpose and I just got a pair of black sequin Toms.

    I have this rule to only wear sportswear when I’m actually working out. No yoga pants if you’re not gonna do yoga. NO NO NO

    I always wear sports clothes. Usually baggy pants and a fitted tee, dancer’s tee or a tank top, a hoodie and skate shoes.

  • Mae 16 mai 2013, 8:23 / Répondre

    These are most certainly edgy and more fashion forward gym clothes, but I can’t justify these prices for sports-like gear…. :T

    In private, I end up in James Perse leggings several times repaired because my favorite ring keeps snagging them and ripping a hole, Spanish espadrilles, a soft tee shirt that is so old it’s reincarnated as lace, and my eyeglasses because they rest my eyes from contact lenses! More importantly, loads of moisturizer (I like Bobbi Brown’s Vitamin E Enriching, it smells edible) and a hair clip I can’t find anywhere but one beauty supply in LA. In public I might replace the leggings with jeans and add mascara and conceal what otherwise leads people to believe I’ve been punched in the face. No yoga or workout gear for me unless I’m workout bound. It’s a mental game, I’m not allowed to wear it if I’m not doing it… although the leggings….are leggings…I don’t consider them pants.

    off duty for me always always include nikes just like those pictured- but with a white check. they are super lightweight with a clean profile that you can clean up.

    and i’m with you on no jeans, as i work for a denim company.

    I alos love T by Alexander Wang, it fits my style. Plus, I wouldn’t know how to look sporty-cool knowing that..um…I’m not…

    Leggings are lifesavers
    Just put them on, a basic t-shirt and keds
    This is definitely my off-duty look for months

    Tu vas adorer la collection Isabel Marant de cet hiver, alors, tout à fait dans cet esprit. Mais gare quand même à la Pyjamite-aigue ! Je dis ça à ma copine qui bosse chez Dior et qui du coup, les jours off reste en jogging toute la journée !

    My off duty clothes are my yoga pants, even though I haven’d done any yoga in 6 months. I now do qigong, but I didn’t think I’d look good in traditional Chinese kung-fu outfit :D

  • kris 17 mai 2013, 7:57 / Répondre

    off duty includes all black comfy clothes and great lipstick!!!! xoxo

  • Rita 17 mai 2013, 12:23 / Répondre

    I am not a big fan of yoga clothes, unless you’re actually doing yoga, but that is just my personal preference. Off duty outfit? Black leggings, ballet flats, slouchy top and a topknot. Maybe throw on a scarf or cropped jacket, if it’s cool weather. :)

    I love this. I have a foot injury and other than the recommendation of Birkenstocks (argh) my podiatrist has given me a carbon foot plate to place in my shoes. Its a bit like a splint. The catch – it only fits in my running shoes. So I am spending the next few weeks only in gym gear. I thought I was doing well with the yoga pants until a girlfriend commented that I look like one if those annoying people that go to the gym everyday. I miss my usual off duty, boyfriend jeans, tshirt and bensimon flats.

  • Costume De Rigueur 18 mai 2013, 10:00 / Répondre

    hmm…american apparel leggings, a grey wool cardigan and a zadig et voltaire leopard fur hood parka, as it still has a veeeery bad weather in London and I can’t just wear a half-zip or a nice tee..and yes, I need to confess that, a pair of pink Uggs! As it’s freezing and I want some color in my life too finally!

    CDR

    P.S. apologies for the burst-out! and I pray that at the end of June that I am coming to Paris the weather is going to be slightly better…otherwise…I’ll just bring my UNIFORM!

    t-shirt, jupe très courte, bottes délacées et gros bijoux bizzares (sont des trucs que je ne peux pas mettre on dutty…). ce qui fait que je me demande en tout temps (tétanisée), c’est quand que mes boss ou mes clients tombent sur moi ET me reconnaissent…
