On The Way To Be A Classic: Athleisure

Long ago Lady Diana had already introduced us to this trend. Oversized sweatshirts, colorful tights combined with stylish accessories that would create a contrast in appearance were one of Diana's favorite looks. Athleisure actually refers to the infiltration of the clothes we wear into our daily lives only when we are doing sports. It's no surprise that this style has become popular again and again, especially considering the process we go through and how our choices combine the link between the street and the home.

With the fashion world taking this comfort on its radar, new ones were added to the well-known sports brands, while higher fashion brands kept pace with the times with unexpected collaborations. Of course, we can give the Gucci x The Northface duo as the closest example of this.

Sportswear that used to represent only a certain area, combined with the transformative effect of fashion, also included famous names in the game. In general, athleisure style, which brings us all together in the common area, started to show itself in fashion shows by hosting different patterns and colors.

Speaking of sweatshirts used with skirts and sweatpants with blazers, the first signal of this trend was yoga tights. Yoga tights that served only the purpose before, started to take place in our daily lives with different designs over time. When we look at our surroundings a little more carefully, these style appearances that create the feeling that “he just got out of sports or will go to sports soon” are quite a lot. This trend, which everyone loves to use from influencers to star names, has risen to a higher dimension with the reflection of the advancing technology on the materials. Breathable fabrics, sustainable designs, fast and easy-to-use parts reflect us that Athleisure is not actually a temporary trend.

So how is Athleisure different from the usual casual look?

Using the word hybrid for this style of clothing would be correct at this stage. At first, shirts, jackets, and even pencil skirts, which are considered more formal after the looks that have a stronger sporty side, are included in the work and create an elegance based on comfort. This elegance, on the other hand, does not put you in a circle of certain rules with different accessories and shoes. In summary, Athleisure is a style you direct from your stilettos to your high heels. Thanks to this convenience, you can easily adapt to any situation throughout the day.

At the same time, this style helps us to feel healthier or more active psychologically thanks to the sportive energy it contains. With its absence of physical restrictions and attitude compatible with every body type, it has a power that moves towards becoming a classic, especially among the Z generation.
