When it comes to elevating athleisure, it's all about embracing the mix-and-match mentality, fusing laid-back cuts with refined details. Imagine grey joggers paired with a two-tone heel, knitted dresses matched with colored sneaks, or even the audacious combo of waterproof slides with Gucci socks and a sleek trench coat.

Transitioning from a high-stakes meeting at the corporate headquarters to a front-row spot at fashion week? No sweat; this season, corp-core is where it's at. Think ties, loafers, cocooning coats, and yuppie shirts that'll make you question if you've stumbled onto Wall Street. Take this trend beyond the office by infusing it with unexpected details. Try a pair of cropped shorts or throw on some bold, bulbous sunglasses to keep things interesting.
