How to Rock Activewear Outside the Gym
Yep, athleisure is still a thing. It is growing bigger than ever (proof here) since 2015 and we have zero problems with that.
What is athleisure anyway and why is everyone talking about it?
As Millennials are deemed the most health-conscious generation ever, their active lifestyle has made an impact on the fashion world, positively. Athleisure started as a style of clothing that is suitable for fitness activities but also chic enough to be worn for everyday life.
This fusion of fashion and function has now evolved into a way of living, as it continues to blur the line between streetwear and athletic wear. Today, celebrities and fashion bloggers are rocking sweatpants as a high-fashion thing at major events.
How to tap into the athleisure trend:
Sporty-esque clothes can be found everywhere from fast-fashion retailers to luxury designer labels. However, most of the athleisure pieces' are intended for getting things done, or going places and therefore, are not suitable to have a sweaty workout in.
On the other hand, you can also jump on the athleisure bandwagon in a smart way with zero budget by pairing up activewear with your daily wear pieces.
Here are a few A-listers approved key items that you can incorporate into your gym look:
Originally worn by the military air forces back in 50's and 60's for its function, bomber jacket has evolved into a wardrobe staple for every fashionista we know.

A leather jacket is a timeless piece that never goes out of style. It adds an instant edge to any outfit while keeping you warm on cooler days. If you do not own a leather jacket, it's time to invest in one!

You can still join the athleisure club even if you are not a fan of the leggings-are-pants thing.From mini to midi to maxi, celebrities and fashion bloggers are rocking the glam-leisure look by matching a sports bra with a pretty skirt on a night out.
Relaxed Fit Jeans
It's true that they said good jeans are a girl's best friend, one of the reasons being that they are hard to come by.
