What is Athleisure?

Posted on 14/03/20


In simple summation = Athletic + Leisure

According to Merriam-Webster, Athleisure definition is casual clothing designed to be worn both for exercising and for general use. Anyone who likes to wear athletic wear for casual and daily wear primarily has adopted the trend.

Casual clothing meant comfortable clothing, and there was nothing more comfortable than activewear. Giant athletic brands started to become more athleisure wear brands. A new market began to emerge where active clothing can swiftly be turned into casual and leisurewear clothing.

I’m sure we’re all guilty of wearing leggings and a sports top when casually lounging around the house. However, this raises the question on whether sportswear should be worn as an everyday outfit. In my opinion, if its comfy it’s a go ahead for me! The amount of people who wear leggings out even when exercise is not part of the plan is increasing. Sure, sportswear is all about comfort, but is there a certain extent we should stop at when it comes to everyday wear? Either way, I’m sat here typing out this blog in joggers and a sweatshirt, and I’m comfy as ever!
