What is the Athleisure Trend?
What is the athleisure trend? The athleisure trend is casual, comfortable clothing designed to be suitable both for exercise and everyday wear, styles which you can wear to run daily errands in, do the school run and can also wear to the gym or for an at home workout. This style is perfect for women who have a thousand things to juggle in the space of a day, and do not always have the time to retreat home to change.
This trendy trait is something which has taken over the fashion world, especially during the pandemic. Although a casual and comfortable look, we have seen some designers take this form into their hands and created high end fashion with this look, such as creating a wide leg trouser with a stripe down the side for a sports feel, giving the element of smart casual a new meaning.
When I think of athleisure, I think of leggings, cropped tops, oversized jumpers, and trainers; something which can double up as work out gear, accessorized with a baseball cap and a large handbag for running daily jobs. On Goddiva Marketplace, there are several brands where you can find styles to fit this newly accomplished trend. With brands like Cosmochic, A Postcard from Brighton, Amelia Apparel, Yumi & Saint A all jumping on board the athleisure train.
One brand who I feel got this trend down to a t is Amelia Apparel with their 80’s inspired shell suit tracksuit. This two-piece suit is the true definition of clothing for being on the go. In its classic black colour with pink and white colour blocking for a more girly feel, this suit is ticking boxes. Its over the head hooded top comes equipped with a front pocket, so a bag is not needed for this sporty look, while the bottoms are not joggers as we think, oh no, its leggings. This whole fit is perfect for dropping the kids to school, running to the gym and then off to the local supermarket for a food shop.
Now, when thinking of athleisure, you think of not only comfort, but you also look for style, trend and whether you look fashionable or not, even if you are just going for a jog in the park, you never know who you might bump into. Cosmochic by Goddiva is that brand that gives you it all. Fashion, comfort, and style all wrapped into one. With classically vintage velour styled suits, or crop tops with legging sets which can be teamed with a hoody.
Every girl loves and needs a black jumper. Having a black hoody is the equivalent to having a Little Black Dress in my eyes, never goes out of fashion and is always there as a safe back up. The next best thing these days to having something back is to have something khaki, and its like Saint A read our minds with this one. Their Saint A Billy Loungewear Set is everything. Although this isn’t something I personally would recommend wearing to the gym, unless teamed with a gym worthy t-shirt with the leggings, using the top as a cover up. I feel like this is an everyday solution to every girls daily struggle when wanting to find something cute to wear but trendy and comfy. An oversized hooded top, with frill detailing on the hem and drawstring on the hood giving you sporty chic, and classic fitted leggings you cannot go wrong.
