Last week, we touched on the importance of being able to hustle and look good in athleisure. Running streets, errands, or with friends can be done with comfort in the right gear. We are always peepin’ the scene and Finish Line gave me life with their @eatrightrun spotlight. Natasha Mufleh is a fitness guru and works as a personal trainer. She is also a mother, so her lifestyle is very active to say the least.
“I won’t sacrifice my comfort, that’s why athleisure fits me perfectly; I get to have the best of both worlds.”
I’m no fitness guru, but Natasha was definitely relatable. Like many of us, we want to look fly, and that does not always entail a dress and heels. Natasha explained that she loves to put together outfits that are comfortable and cute with sneakers being the focal point. There are many ways to turn your everyday casual outfits into head-turning “where is she going” looks. Little details such as a cap, backpack, or light jacket can elevate a look. If you are wearing basic colors like white and black, a pop of mixed patterns or vibrant shoe colorway enhance your whole outfit. Contrasting is key for Natasha’s styles and she has a bold simplicity that I really like.
“What I wear to the gym is not necessarily what I wear out and about, but they usually are quite similar in terms of style and coordination. But of course, the kicks are what tie the outfit together.”
As a mother, I can relate to being on the move and making your accessories work for you. Instead of carrying a huge diaper bag, I opt for backpacks as well. I can still feel comfortable and confident when on the move.
“In my opinion, you can never own too many kicks, leggings, or sports bras. But I don’t like to just throw on any random pair of sweats and tanks, I like to put them together in a very cute, trendy way. I have never been a girly girl, and I cannot walk in heels to save my life. Luckily, I get to have my own style and be comfortable, too.”
“If I’m wearing plain colors, I will most definitely garnish the outfit with a pop. This red jacket is THE definition of pop!”
“When the leggings are dark, the shoes HAVE to pop. What better way to pop than a fresh pair of white Prestos?”
Natasha explains in her interview that by dressing "comfortably-cute", she is always ready while on the move. Her personal style is transitional, liberating, and aligns with her active lifestyle while looking and feeling great.
