What is Athleisure Wear?

There are two kinds of people in the world—those who are comfortable wearing yoga pants 24/7 and those who despise the trend. While fashion is and always has been subjective, there are general guidelines to follow before stepping outside.

There are two kinds of people in the world—those who are comfortable wearing yoga pants 24/7 and those who despise the trend. While fashion is and always has been subjective, there are general guidelines to follow before stepping outside.

 

Here, Flying Lizard Boutique takes a look at the current athleisure wear trend and how to carefully navigate the do’s and don’ts.

 

Loosely defined, athleisure wear is a broad category of clothing that falls somewhere between athletic and leisurely attire. Think joggers, yoga pants, sports bras, and tennis shoes.

 

Juicy Couture can take partial credit for the emerging trend with its introduction of the velour track suit in the early 2000s. Though it looked more like a pajama set, the design certainly didn’t dissuade women across the country from wearing the get-up to brunch, school, and everywhere in between.

How Much Athleisure Wear is Too Much?

Though the styles have improved, the question still remains: How much is too much?

Athleisurewear Do’s

Stencil Print Athleisure Wear Leggings

  1. An outfit that can be dressed up with accessories or a change of shoes is far more likely to pass as all-day acceptable. For example, the ultra-chic Stencil Print Legging pairs well with a tunic and booties.

  2. Opting for a sturdy, moisture-wicking top and bottom is an absolute must for running errands. See through fabrics, nude colors, and mesh are best for the gym only—and even that’s debatable.

  3. Be as comfortable as possible underneath the outerwear. Rocking a sexy yet functional sports bra like Sweaty I’m Home is never a fashion faux pas so long as no one knows (and they won’t).

 

Athleisurewear Don’ts

  1. Athletic gear should never be worn in a professional or formal setting—work, dinner, parent teacher conferences, etc. There’s a point at which it no longer becomes publicly acceptable to feign a post-workout drop-by.

  2. When committing to a day and night athleisure wear look, skip the bold prints. Python Blue Leggings are a funky addition to a spin class wardrobe, but might be a bit too flashy for an everyday look.

  3. Apologizing for one’s outfit is never good form. Those who choose to sport gym attire all day are better off owning it. Lack of confidence? That’s always a don’t!
