ATHLEISURE FASHION STYLE
Athleisure combines the words “athletic” and “leisure” and refers to athletic apparel which you can integrate into your everyday casual wardrobe.
Athleisure is the signature fashion trend of the 21st century driven by wellness aspirations and celebrity endorsement on social media. It became widespread in 2016 when key influencers Beyoncé and Rihanna introduced it to the mainstream.
This fashion trend is characterized by athletic clothing that is comfortable, practical, easy to combine, versatile and aesthetically appealing. Turning performance wear into everyday wear, athleisure is blurring the lines between the clothes you’d wear to the gym and those you’d wear to lunch.
Further improvements like making athleisure apparel waterproof, more breathable, stretchable, rapid drying, wrinkle-free, moisture-wicking, odour reduction, sweat-wicking, UV-repelling and lightweight etc. have also caused a surge in demand for athleisure apparel.
Yoga pants, tights, sneakers, leggings, jogger pants, tank tops, sports bras, and hoodies are the staples of this fashion style. You can pair oversized pieces with body-tight pieces or complete your outfit entirely with form-fitting pieces.
By blending fashion pieces such as jeans, a leather jacket, and graphic t-shirts with activewear pieces such as sneakers, sweatpants, tights or a sports bra, you’ll create an effortlessly stylish, well-balanced look.
