Have you ever wondered why so many women in jogging pants are currently walking around the city? The reason for this is called “athleisure”. We reveal what the fashion trend is all about! Those who wear sweatpants have by no means lost control of their lives – as Karl Lagerfeld wanted to make us believe a few years ago. On the contrary, jogging braces do a lot right! Not only that, according to a Harvard study, they are treated better and perceived as more confident – they also demonstrate a sense of style. Because wearing sportswear is very popular right now. And not just in the gym.
The magic word with which you can plunge fashionistas into acute shock love in 2018 is athleisure. The English concept of art is made up of the words “athletic” and “leisure wear” and is one of the most important fashion trends. As the name suggests, the trend describes garments that originally come from the sports sector, but are now also being worn very confidently in everyday life.
Breaks of style wanted: This is how you combine athleisure parts correctly
Whether XXL hoodie, zip jacket, sports bra, track pants, flip flops or functional sneakers – Instagram is teeming with casual sporty styles. Blogger Aimee Song shows what is important in the fashion trend. The influencer wears a sleek white shirt with her classy blackberry-colored pants suit. The eye-catcher of their look are the eye-catching sneakers, which immediately make the outfit look sporty and are a blatant break in style with the elegant suit. And exactly such style breaks are desired in athleisure style.
Ugly sneakers are super hip right now
Caro Daur has also fallen for athleisure and swears by the super trendy Ugly sneakers. The chunky shoes together with the jeans provide a sporty contrast to the otherwise classic-chic look with a blazer. Combined discreetly, the athleisure trend can also be worn on the job.
Combine track pants: This is how the jogging pants look classy
Another part that no one can avoid thanks to the athleisure trend: the track pants. Influencer Chriselle Lim shows how the trendy jogging pants with the side stripes become socially acceptable. She breaks up the sporty look of the pants by combining a feminine off-shoulder blouse and pointed pumps. In this combination, the track pants do not look a bit silty.
Tip: If you want to wear sweatpants in the office, you should make sure that you choose a more stylish model. So choose a slightly shiny, flowing model instead of rented sweat jogging pants and combine chic shoes like ankle boots or pumps.
The sweatpants can also be sexy
The German Instagram star Xenia van der Woodsen is currently crazy about track pants. In her look she combines an exciting one shoulder crop top with the classic sweatpants from Adidas. The red, pointed patent leather pumps transform the sporty look into a sexy night outfit.
Totally easy: athleisure outfits for summer
The athleisure trend definitely convinced us. Why? Because a fashion trend has never been so cozy! Instead of uncomfortable high heels and incisive clothes, we can now slip into super casual outfits without being looked at obliquely. In addition, the sporty look is totally easy to style. In summer swimsuits and shorts are enough and the practical athleisure outfit is ready. Perfect!
