So you’ve seen the ‘athleisure’ trend pop up everywhere, but you’re still not sure how to wear it. Good news is, myself and 3 other bloggers got together to shoot the trend, and we all had different takes on it too! We ranged from Lauren who was gym ready in comfy brights, to Ashley and Alyssa who took their edgy black pieces up a notch with jewelry and bright accessories, to myself …. who basically just wore sneakers.
Anyway I love this trend because I think it speaks to where we as consumers are headed. Yes, always thinking about the business behind selling style (that is my day job), I think athleisure reflects how our changing culture is gearing toward a more healthy, fitness related lifestyle. We are doing so many things at once, constantly traveling or on the move, that finding a way to wear athletic clothing in an everyday fashion was inevitable. And although I will always be a sucker for a killer high heel, I love that I now have reason to buy chic gym clothes that I can incorporate into my everyday life.
What do you think? What’s your take on the athleisure trend? What pieces from your gym wardrobe do you find incorporating into your everyday wardrobe the most?
