Showing up in shorts, sporty casual look and sneakers anywhere outside of the gym was once frowned upon, yet today’s street-style icons and professionals alike flaunt their healthy lifestyle on the go by donning limited-edition trainers matched with high-performance or high-end sportswear outfit. In 2018, I can now say that it’s apparent that the athleisure trend is here to stay, or actually allow me to say that “it’s not just a trend. It’s a lifestyle!”
The term athleisure – recently included in the Webster’s Dictionary – refers to casual clothing designed to be worn for exercising and general day to day use, and little by little the world is starting to adapt this trend and accept it. Look around and notice how social conventions on clothing are decreasing! People are freeing themselves from feeling constrained by their wardrobe and want to be flexible to face all that the day brings. Thank you athleisure for making our lives easier, and most importantly, making fashion more active and functional as well as liberal!
