Fitting in exercise or sports classes around your daily plans often means you have to rush from work or other commitments to the gym whilst ensuring you leave enough time to get changed. Designed to present a functional solution, athleisure wear means you won’t have to change at all. This growing trend blends a relaxed style with functional workout wear and is becoming popular among those looking to fit in daily or weekly workouts alongside other plans.
Made from performance-enhancing, breathable and durable materials, athleisure presents a versatile and time-saving wardrobe addition. So whether you’re lounging or going for a run, this apparel is designed to comfortably see you through most activities. If you’re looking for some athleisure clothing to see you through the day, read on to find out more about what it is, why it’s beneficial for those with active lifestyles and outfits that showcase the latest athleisure trends.
Blending style, comfort and functionality, athleisure is a fashion trend that has grown in popularity in recent years. Essentially a hybrid of athletic wear and casual clothing, athleisure is designed to be worn to any setting; characterised by its suitability for both exercise and everyday wearing.
Whether your plans revolve around heading to the gym or a sports class, working from home or meeting friends, athleisure is well-known for its versatility. Rather than choosing a separate outfit for each occasion; this allows you to wear the same casual outfit throughout the day. Becoming popular during the covid lockdowns where people abandoned the latest styles and favoured more relaxed options, athleisure wear has continued to see a heightened demand ever since.
Hugely beneficial for active lifestyles, athleisure can help people stay active and motivated no matter the setting they are in, allowing them to easily fit their workout routines into a busy schedule without having to change into a new outfit each time. Athleisure wear is also well-known for providing enhanced comfort while wearers go about their day-to-day lives.
The demand for athleisure wear doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. This means, for 2024, it’s strongly expected to continue; centering around comfortable, movable and aesthetically pleasing apparel. This means lounge-focussed clothing such as overlays, hoodies, tops, joggers and leggings all come under this category.
However, as with any trend, athleisure wear has evolved over the years. While this initially focussed on blending comfort and style in equal amounts, today this style places more emphasis on the former.
Whether you’re looking to pair a casual top with leggings, or you would prefer sporting a warmer hoodie and joggers combination, with athleisure trends constantly developing, we’ve listed a range of men’s and women’s athleisure wear trends for 2024.
