What is Athleisure?

In simple terms, athletic clothing is a style that is suitable for both exercise and every day wear.

This was more of a style you would pull off at the gym, once upon a time.

Over the years, athleisure has evolved into something more and has become an actual trend!

The difference then and now is that you don’t actually need to workout to follow the athleisure trend.


Athleisure = Comfortable + Stylish!


There are 3 ways to pull-off this style:


Be 100% athletic:


If you’re looking at the style to be more functional and still be casual, you should invest in a couple of cute pieces,

which can be anything from black leggings with fun details or a classy hoodie.



Be 50% athletic, 50% casual


Wear your workout clothes and add in casual pieces like a jacket, sunglasses, cap, beanie, handbag or a bag pack.



Be 100% Casual:


Wear a normal outfit and pair it with an athletic piece. For example: sneakers with dresses, sweatshirt

with a skirt, or a cap with a cute top, or jogger pants with a sweatshirt.
