Fall Streetwear Staples You Need in Your Closet
Streetwear fashion mixed with sportswear staples to disrupt the global athleisure market with verve. That’s P.E Nation.
If the bolder than ever runway shows and flashy streetwear seen flaunted throughout New York Fashion Week are our starting line for styles we should be embracing, then post-traumatic growth, celebrating big, eschewing constraints and flaunting our individuality are big on the agenda. Colors will be loud. Silhouettes will be freeing and empowering. Our individual expression channelled through style will be larger than life. And we are here for it.
Coined in 2004 by clinical psychologists Richard Tedeschi and Lawrence Calhoun, post-traumatic growth refers to positive changes experienced following a struggle with life-altering events - pandemics included. “We’ve learned that negative experiences can spur positive change, including a recognition of personal strength, the exploration of new possibilities, improved relationships, a greater appreciation for life and spiritual growth,” Tedeschi shared in the Harvard Business Review.
In essence, our rebellious reaction to events that impacted our lives and were out of our control, is to celebrate, to explore, shine bright, be loud and authentic, to demonstrate acts of service, and to express ourselves as individually as possible. As Tedeschi puts it, “The challenges to core beliefs that we encounter in trauma often force people to … design a life worth continuing to live … The possibilities for personal and collective growth should not be squandered.”
The Best Colors to Wear in Fall
With this in mind, it’s little wonder the runway looks and street-style witnessed as the fashion weeks roll out from New York to London and beyond, bring everything shiny and electric, unexpected and uninhibited to the fore.
One of the best colors to wear in fall, hot pink is perfect for Fall workout outfits. A symbol of punk rebellion since the '80s, hot pink is provocative, bold, vibrant and electric. “With many nostalgic for simpler, sunnier and more carefree times, it only makes sense that this ’80s-inspired, unapologetically pink aesthetic is taking centre stage as the ‘it’ style,” Etsy trend expert Dayna Isom Johnson shared in a statement.
Combine the hot pink color code with exercise endorphins and you’ll secure an instant confident co-ord for your activewear wardrobe - whether you choose to wear it head to toe or matched back with black. Lighter shades of pink, white, yellow and light blue are great options to style it with too.
Fall gym outfits don’t get much brighter than teaming the Intuitive Bike Short, Full Time Short or Amplify fall workout leggings with the Amplify Sports Bra. These pieces are cut from breathable fabrics, and you can mix and match them with other colors and styles in the Base Colour collection to create your own cute athletic outfits for Fall.
Another fabric good for Fall streetwear is the organic cotton and hemp blend used to create the vintage look and feel of some of our favourite tees and tanks. Take the Dondi Tee or Rogue Tank from the latest collections. Cut from 70% organic cotton, 30% hemp fabrication, they’re made from one of the best breathable fabrics while giving an instant vintage tee vibe fresh off the rails. It's fall athletic wear done right.
