If you’ve been keeping on top of your fashion trend watch, chances are you have come across the word athleisure. Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are deemed the queens of this trend and Beyonce’s new Ivy Park is the brand epitome…. but what is it, exactly?
Athleisure is a designer-meets-workout look, also known as an acceptable way to wear yoga pants all day long. Over the past year or so, athleisure has become a staple of street fashion, and for good reason. After all, what’s better than staying on point with your wardrobe while feeling like you’re in pajamas all day long? Don’t get me wrong, though. Athleisure is not about wearing baggy sweats that hide your figure. Rather, it is just a comfy, sporty, and chic way to dress that is amazing on all body types. It’s all about body positive.
The most common staples of the athleisure look are fitted yoga pants or leggings, sleek running jackets, trendy trainers, and modern-fitting tops. To really complete the look, add a bomber jacket, some minimalistic jewelry, and a casual sweater. By crossing certain items that aren’t considered “sporty” with workout clothes, you’ll be right on track to rocking this trend!

Happy shopping, and remember that confidence is the key to rocking your own unique style!
