Whenever I hear the word Athleisure, the first thing that comes to my mind is comfort. It is definitely a thing today and does not seem to be going anywhere, anytime soon.
So what exactly is Athleisure? Well, to be precise, it is a fashion trend that entails wearing sportswear/active wear outside of the gym. Although this trend has been around since the 90s, it has never been as popular as it is today. And this is majorly because everyone is moving towards a healthy lifestyle and comfort-oriented fashion. People nowadays are more interested in spending money on clothing that makes them look sporty, comfortable and stylish at the same time.
Celebrities and fashionistas around the world have been seen donning this trend and have collaborated with brands to create both sporty and fashionable products. Some of the most notable ones include Rihanna X Fenty Puma, Kanya West X Adidas and Beyonce Ivy Park X Topshop.
I personally love Athleisure and have put together a cool yet comfy look for you all.

There’s no doubt that our lifestyle today is a major contributing factor towards the growth of Athleisure. With our busy lives, we are always on a lookout for clothes that can be worn everywhere without giving much thought.
The best part about this trend is that its not restricted to just women. Men today are often spotted wearing hoodies, joggers and sneakers at both work and gym.
Few tips that will help you rock this trend:
- Wear your tights/leggings with a loose fitting tee or tank. You could tie it in front for a more chic look.
- On cooler days, pair your tights with a crop hoodie or a cute sweatshirt.
- You could even tie a denim shirt/jacket around your waist to complete your athleisure look.
