Ditch the skinny jeans, there’s a new comfortable trend in town that is taking center stage. Blame it on Beyonce for making us swoon over her laid back look in her latest video or on Alexander Wang for making his sporty looks appear so enticing when the models walked the runway last fall. Regardless who is to blame, Athleisure is a thing and it seems like it is here to stay.
Activewear used to consist of old gym-shorts and your oldest torn tee-shirt you could find, now athletic-wear has taken on a whole new meaning. People are more focused on their health now than ever before. And they are not only paying attention to what they are eating and how they are treating their bodies but also paying close attention to what they are wearing to the gym. Just last year we saw a significant increase from female shoppers, spending 8% more on activewear than the previous year.
Since people are paying so much attention to what they are wearing to and from the gym, designers are finally taking notice and are trying to keep up with the demand. There are so many options now for attractive and elevated activewear that we are seeing it more and more in our day-to-day dress. Fifteen years ago we would be horrified if we saw one of our friends when leaving the gym, now athletic wear is so fashionable and functional that you could meet a friend for lunch right after you leave your sweat sesh!
Love it or hate it, the Athleisure is a trend is a game changer. Whether you are an athlete or a stay at home more, the combination of athletic inspired pieces and leisurewear create the ultimate look for someone that is living an active lifestyle. We love that the trend blends both fashion and comfort and is perfect for a mom on-the-go or a teen hanging out with friends. Regardless who you are or what you do, we promise you will be living in those sneakers, your fancy new yoga tights and that cashmere wrap before your know it.
