One of the cutest, but possibly hardest trends to wear right now is athleisure.

Athleisure wear is clothing that is gym to the office chic.

Top brands like Chanel have kicked off the trend with their Fall 2014 ad campaign that shows models in chic gym clothing.

So how can you rock this trend? Easy!

At Garish Gal we have quite a few pieces that are on trend.

We have a Blank NYC faux leather version that is great for adding edge to this look. These I love pairing with a graphic tee or a fun sweater for colder days.

We also have another style from Jack by BB Dakota that is a french terry sweat track pant. They look great with a solid blouse and our Ganley faux leather jacket.

You can dress these pants down with flats and graphic tees OR you can dress these up with a pretty blouse and heels.

Above are some great inspiration pictures I found for you to play with this look!

Fall Must Haves: French Terry

IMG_5902 IMG_5901

French terry has become a popular fabric with the resurgence of the atheleisure wear trend.

French terry is comfortable, forgiving, and stretchy fabric.

We have a couple of different pieces of French Terry on ShopGarishGal.com.

However, my favorite piece is this above blazer!

I love how this blazer is structured, but still has a draping look in the front. While it looks great with jeans, it also looks great over a black dress (like either this one or this) or over a blouse and pencil skirt as an update for your work wear.

I love how easy it is to move in this blazer due to the French Terry Fabric. I also love the tweed like look with the contrasting pleather detail. It is a great piece to add to your wardrobe.

Fall Must Haves: Fur Vests

IMG_5861 IMG_5864IMG_5893

Fur vests are a great way to add some sass to an outfit. I LOVE to wear fur vests, mainly because I am always cold and they are a cool way to keep warm. All of the fur pieces on ShopGarishgal.com are good quality faux fur.

Pictured are two fun ways to wear faux fur.

The first look is a great way to mix textures and prints. The pastel plaid printed blouse brings color to the ivory vest and solid moto pants. I love this look because it is an easy way to be transitional. You can take this look from day to night by adding a pair of heels or booties.

The second look is a fun 70s mod look. The wine pleather shorts are a great way to add a trendy fall color to your look. The cream blouse works as a neutral between the shorts and the fur vest. Black fur vests are great wardrobe staples because they can be worn in various ways. You can pair them with shorts, leggings, denim, or over a dress as a completer piece.

Fall Must Haves: Pencil Skirt

Pencil Skirts are work wear must haves- not just fall must haves!

This is a great black pencil skirt– it is so comfortable and stretchy.

I love that the quilted stitching adds a new take to the typical pencil skirt.

Cozy and Comfortable, yet still work wear appropriate. This first look is a great way to pair a cardigan with a pencil skirt. You can relax in the office or switch out the cardigan for a blazer when it’s meeting time! The blouse looks great tucked in, or you can tuck in the front and let the pleated back detailing peak out of the cardigan.

The open mouth/lips is a trend from last fall that we are seeing again for this fall. So I thought the perfect way to edge up a classic pencil skirt is to add this fun graphic tee. I love to wear booties in the fall/winter. They are the perfect completer piece. Of course it is fall so I added my floppy hat!

However you decide to wear your pencil skirt, this is definitely a staple piece.

Fall Must Haves: Kimonos

IMG_5898IMG_5904IMG_5899

Kimonos are great because they transition seasons easily!

They not only look great with fall pieces, but also look amazing with summer dresses.

For fall, this first look is a great way to be casual in a kimono. Jeans, graphic tee, booties, and a fun floppy hat is a simple and easy way to rock a kimono. I love the lace and fringe detailing on these kimonos! They are super light weight and breezy. Throwing on a floppy hat is my favorite way to hide day 3 hair!

I really love the kimono dress mix! For Garish Gals in warmer fall weather, I love sassing up this geo patterned dress with the kimono and adding booties for a boho look. The fit and flare structure of the dress is super flattering on any body shape. I am more of a structure girl and tend to stay away from bohemian, but I really love mixing the structured dress with the boho kimono. It’s a fun way to step out of my normal look and play with a new look (at a great price).

This week we are highlighting our Fall Must Haves and offering different promo deals every day!!

Today, we are focusing on Faux Leather Bottoms!

Use promo code Fall15 to receive 15% off of all of our faux leather bottoms!

This first look is one of my favorites! Pairing our Rockin’ Rebel Skater Skirt with this brand new Cross My Heart Blouse in red creates a major statement. The sharpness of the red against the black skirt is stark-I just love the contrast.

These moto pants are edgy, adding a sweater is a great way to bring a little edge to your typical sweater look. I normally don’t like to wear pleather pants, but these are amazingly comfortable and giving! Animal print is a great way to bring a pop of pattern to a minimal outfit. I love the texture elements on the pants and how they contrast to the texture of the sweater. This look is a great way to mix texture with pattern in a subtle way. I also love these pants with the Cross My Heart Blouse (the way we style it on the site)!
