According to Wikipedia athliesure is a trend in fashion in which clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as during work, casual or social occasions. Athleisure outfits are yoga pants, tights and leggings that “look like athletic wear” and characterized as “fashionable, dressed up sweats and exercise clothing”. The idea is that gym clothes are supposedly making their way out of the gym and becoming a larger part of people’s everyday wardrobes.
Well, I am pretty sure the fashion gods blessed all of us when this magical ‘athliesure’ trend came to life. It is HONESTLY what I want to be wearing every day. The Lucy, ‘Get Going Dress’ above has not left my body or my suitcase for the entire summer. The magical fabric is a quick-dry and lightweight four-way stretch woven fabric. This fabric packs like a dream and is the perfect piece to throw on over your bathing suit because it drys in seconds. The dress comes in three colors. I suggest you snag them ALL.
Now, let’s talk about the pockets on this ‘Destination Anywhere Long Wrap’ from Lucy. Again, a killer piece for traveling and layering over leggings AND should you actually feel like dressing up one day…it works over a dress!
How do you feel about this trend? Will you be rocking athliesure?
