Screen Shot 2016-03-07 at 12.47.01 PMSome of my favorite things about the Derek Lam 10C x Athleta design collaboration is its ability to be so versatile, stylish and comfortable! I picked some of my favorite pieces from the collection and provided styling tips and ideas on how to wear them.

Keepin’ It Casual

When pairing your Easy Track Short and Velocity Jacket with the Daily Tee (which I like to give a slight front tuck to), opt for a less casual shoe to balance out your look.

On the Daily

Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 12.13.25 PMThe Relaxed Tunic is great because it can be styled a of couple different ways. Instead of wearing it loose, I decided to tie up the waist to add some extra detail to my look. The sleekness of the outfit made it the perfect look to pair with the Athleta and Derek Lam 717 Sneaker by New Balance®.

This look was instantly transformed from something that could be worn day-to-day to something worn on a more special occasion or to work.

I like most of the looks, but I don’t know anyone who works that could ever wear those shorts. The skirt and pants are a possible, but definitely not the shorts.
