As our busy and hectic lives brings us a higher demand for comfortable and practical clothes, how do we combine fashion and function together to create a stylish yet totally wearable look? 

Turning ‘work-out’ wear into everyday wear, work-leisure is the answer to your headache. Blurring the lines between the clothes you wear to the gym and those you’d wear to a team lunch, work-leisure can do it all.

With no need to drag around a big bag containing a change of clothes or struggle in heels during a long day, work-leisure is the latest trend you should keep a lookout for.

As this trend is fairly new, we are here to give you a few tips on how to rock this new trend!

1. Defining Work-Leisure

The beauty of work-leisure is its ability to both be practical and completely fashionable. The relaxed and cool style blends activewear with ready-to-wear seamlessly to create styles that are chic and comfortable. More than a simple trend, work-leisure goes hand-in-hand with an increased consciousness for personal health, busy schedules and relaxed standards of dressing. 

2. Mixing Functionality and Style

While work-leisure is most probably not the first style you think of when you are curating an outfit appropriate for a job interview or a wedding, the dresses under our #GetOffYourAss (GOYA) line begs to differ. 

A well-fitted dress that accentuates your waist, our Quin Dress helps maintain a sharp silhouette while looking professional and being functional. ade with our technical four-way stretch sweat-wicking GOYA Lush fabric, the Quin Dress is the perfect balance of comfort and elegance. In addition, we also made getting in and out of the dress easy with a zipper that ends halfway through the back, and a button closure at the top.

Similarly, our Elle Dress enables you to be at the peak of effortless elegance and utmost comfort with its body-con fit made from GOYA's Lush Skin Fabric. In addition, the Elle dress also features four-way stretch, moisture-wicking capabilities and gentle pleats across the abdominal area that smartly sharpens your silhouette. 

Unlike any other dress, the Elle has been designed with a subtle capped shoulder that softens your look while making a bold statement of its own. 

Besides Sage, our Elle Dress also comes in other colour variants such as Black, Wisteria and Night.

4. Accessorising
