Fans of puffy v vest, hooded tanks, and run­ning ca capris out­side the gym, re­joice! Mer­riam-Web­ster M just an­nounc an­nounced that they will be adding "ath­leisu "ath­leisure" to the dic­tionary. That's ri right, your love of comfy pants is no now to­tally le­git.

It Itus used to be that your leg­gings were only con­sid­ered ap­pro­pri­ate in the yoga stu­dio, but as the tech­ni­cal cloth­ing got com­fier and cuter, women started to ask why we were lim­it­ing our best gym wear to the gym. The an­swer? No good rea­son! Then when de­sign­ers added slim­ming waist­bands, booty boost­ers, and flat­ter­ing cuts, our ath­letic cloth­ing made us look even bet­ter than our reg­u­lar duds.

In fact, for the first time since jeans were in­vented, denim started los­ing mar­ket share as peo­ple opted for trendy jog­ger pants in­stead of re­stric­tive jeans. And rather than win­ning us back into their indigo arms (legs?), jeans shifted to be­come more like leg­gings... and jeg­gings were born.

And there are no wor­ries about the trend be­ing short-lived. Ac­cord­ing to the Mor­gan Stan­ley re­port, healthy liv­ing can cre­ate a pos­i­tive feed­back loop. "In­di­vid­u­als who ex­er­cise more fre­quently en­joy ap­pre­cia­bly more emo­tional health and well-be­ing. Peo­ple buy­ing clothes, shoes, and gear that helps them stay healthy, fit­ter, and feel­ing good? Why would that ever go out of style?"
