One of the most important trends this season is, without a doubt, the so-called “athleisure”. This combination of casual and athletic wear might have seemed ‘weird’ a few years ago, but now all designers and retailers agree that it’s here to stay. Why? Simply because it fits the modern lifestyle, going hand-in-hand with our busy schedules and the sudden boost in health consciousness. There’s no doubt that the modern woman puts comfort first, but that doesn’t mean she’s ready to give up on her style.
Fortunately, designers didn’t ignore this change of lifestyle and came up with practical, relaxed and very fashionable athletic-inspired clothes to fit these needs. Forget about the omnipresent black leggings and midi sport tops usually associated with sportswear. Instead, say hello to streamlined, sexy designs that are blurring the lines between clothes you’d wear to the gym and those you’d wear to lunch. The one rule you must not forget: relax. Find some comfort in this new trend. (No pun intended.)
