Blending fitness and fashion
Every fit girl is a fan of blending fashion and function with her workout clothes, and according to Merriam-Webster, the trend is here to stay.
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?"
