We’ve all seen that mom who looks effortlessly chic as she drops her kids off at school — the one with the heels and the full face of makeup. Perhaps you admire her from afar and wonder where she finds the time to pull herself together while getting the kids ready. What if there was a way to look just as stylish but with minimal effort? Well, now there is.
Thanks to the athleisure trend sweeping the nation, it’s perfectly acceptable, and even incredibly fashionable, to wear leggings and sneakers just about anywhere. In fact, nearly everyone from celebrities to social media gurus supports the athleisure movement. So, what is athleisure, you ask? It’s athletic-inspired clothing that takes you from the gym to grocery shopping and beyond. Keep reading to learn three reasons athleisure could be your style savior.
- Look Stylish Everywhere You Go
Who says sportswear isn’t stylish? Athleisure consists of clothing designed for both exercising and everyday use. Simply mix and match your workout wear with other favorites from your closet to create an outfit that’s easy, comfortable, and ready for anything that comes your way.
Just remember to keep your look polished and tidy. It’s easy for sportswear to slip toward the sloppy side. Make sure to wear a fitted top if your bottoms are slouchy. Accessorize with scarves and statement jewelry to take your look to the next level. Most importantly, if you sweat in your sportswear while working out, change into something fresh.
- Enjoy All-Day Comfort
Have you ever wanted your workout pants to do double duty throughout the day? Now they can. When it comes to athleisure, comfort is king. Most athleisure pieces contain soft, stretchy materials, such as cotton, Spandex, fleece, and modal. The trend is all about trading zippers and buttons for elastic waistbands to create a cozy, yet stylish, look that you feel good wearing all day long. Have a little one on the way? No need for maternity clothes. Simply toss on an oversized top with a pair of leggings, and you’re set.
- Save Money on Clothes
Versatility is the cornerstone of the athleisure trend. Pair your workout leggings with a sports bra and sneakers to hit the gym in the morning. Take those same leggings and toss on a fleece sweater to run errands in the afternoon. Swap the fleece for a fitted tee, a leather jacket, and heels for a night on the town. Think of all the money you’ll save by using your favorite pieces in so many ways. You’ll also save space in your closet!
If you’re looking for ways to stay up to date with the latest trends without spending a ton of money on new clothes, it’s time to check out the ever-growing athleisure trend. For busy moms on the go all day long, there are so many reasons athleisure could be your style savior. With just a few quick adjustments and layers, athleisure takes your look from the playground to dinner with your friends with ease.
