Athleisure- The best fit for the Fit!
It is amazing how we have started to measure years in terms of trends, ranging from outrageously zany to overly glamorous. Your wardrobe must have been stuffed with utterly comfortable clothing and footwear in the past year. Your gym wear can now multitask as your casual wear and even party wear.
Cool, confident and comfy could it get any better? Shun the heels and pick up some Dad sneakers, pair it with sexy high waist leggings with doubles up as booty enhancers, a sports bra, and throw over a form-fitting jacket. Isn’t that as sexy and comfy as it could be?
The crossover of fitness and fashion has been a huge success and is being loved by people all over the globe. Major sports brands have been collaborating with athletes and models to bring out various lines of performance wear. Fashion is changing, it’s more adaptive and practical, it is great to see how “Fashion” now actually makes “sense”.
What are the clothes that you can do a casual date/ gym/sleep in? Yes, that is the level of comfort we are talking about. One set of clothes serve multiple purposes. Here are a few things you ought to keep in mind while styling up your fitness wardrobe.
Now this is being stressed upon because for the genre we are looking for, the fabric come under the no compromise list. The usual gym fabrics that you must have heard of are quick dry or bamboo or nylon, these are the kinds of fabrics you are looking for. As the word suggests its Athletics + Leisure we need to pick only those clothes with breathable fabric. All your t-shirts and pants and gym lowers will be available throughout the vast variety of fabrics available all across the market. Brassieres and jackets and what not all the garments are available in different kinds of fabrics which have one sole purpose, to provide apt fit and comfort.
Wearing oversized and baggy is all comfy but to perfectly pull off the athleisure look is to make sure that the clothes you are picking fit you nicely. Your shoulders should not droop or your leggings cannot be too long that you need to fold them at the bottoms. A perfect fit makes any kind of clothing look amazing, same goes here. You are working out at the gym wouldn’t you want to flaunt those ripped abs? A t-shirt tight just at the hem of the bicep looks oh so hot! Or a form-fitting sports bra would do wonders. So make the pick wisely and not just go all plus because it is comfortable.
The best thing is it is a no-nonsense no-drama clothing style. Consists of three main things you have to focus on while you go shopping for the fit.
The essentials for women include a wide range of sports bras, and t shirts and hoodies or crop tops. These go by various names like performance wear, gym wear, active wear etc. The ones that are absolutely must haves are bras which come in various shapes with super cool detailing which more so act as crop tops a little too short and pair it with a zipped down meshed jacket or a cute hoody. Other things include funky cropped tops and even cropped hoodies which aren’t exactly warm (even if they were cropped hoodies are definitely not going to save you from any cold).
For men it’s even simpler and guess what apart from bras everything is mostly unisex and come in solid colors. Hoodies, fitted t-shirts and jackets work best with joggers and trainers.
Joggers, trainers, sweat pants and leggings were there earlier as well but now we have a little more than what and how these were used. For the ladies black solid leggings is a must have rather mandatory. Sure you can go ahead and add colors to your wardrobe but the trendiest ones you will see on the streets are black, blue, white or grey. You can go ahead and experiment with prints and colors which is entirely your will.
For men on the other hand an addition are the sweat shorts which go well with any upper wear and basically suit the not so chilly weather.
Yes these make an essential part and should be something that not only completes as well as compliments the entire look. The huge range of shoes that are available in the market from all the colossal sports brands have reported a huge increase in sales in the past year and hence are working to bring new designer lines in active footwear for every need. Sneakers or runners or what is in trends the ugly not so ugly Dad sneakers are all back in business.
The brands you should have a keen eye on, which rather is no surprise and have been coming up with new lines and collaborations with models and sports stars like Gigi Hadid’s recently launched the Reebok X Gigi collection which has just hit the markets and is gaining much attention. Reebok, Nike, Puma, Adidas, Lululemon, Foo and Foo, Yeezy, the list has just started.
We hope you have a comfortable shopping experience and have your favorites picked out so you can slay the athleisure look at all times.
