So … “athleisure” is a thing, and apparently, it’s here to stay. You’ve probably seen people sporting some athleisure gear even if you didn’t realize what it is. Athleisure clothes are basically workout or leisure clothes that are cute and stylish and that aren’t necessarily for (only) the gym. Think the Lou & Grey collection from LOFT or a lot of the things you see in stores like Athleta and Lululemon. Even designer brands are embracing this trend (and charging a ridiculous amount of money for things like cashmere track pants). While I’ll never dish out hundreds of dollars for Karl Lagerfeld sweatshirt, I have no problem with embracing the idea of comfortable clothes that have some style.
These jogger pants are a great example of athleisure wear. I dressed them up for a post in January, but I thought doing a casual look with them would be fun too. I’ve worn a version of this outfit several times lately. It really is such a comfy option when you’re running errands and just want to be comfortable but not look grungy or sloppy. An outfit like this is also a great option if you’re traveling. I always freeze on planes, so wearing a dress, skirt, or shorts really isn’t an option for me, and who wants to sit in a seat that’s about 12 inches wide for several hours when you’re wearing skinny jeans? No thanks! Athleisure for me please!
