We all have those days where the very thought of getting up and putting on “real world clothes” is something we dread. Lucky for us, "Athleisure Wear," is one of the newest trends taking the fashion world by storm… and lucky for us, we can stay comfortable while looking stylish in one of the hottest athleisure wear trends, joggers. More form fitting than a normal pair of sweatpants, joggers allow us to feel the comfort of pajamas on the inside, but look sophisticated and trendy on the outside. Celebrities like Kendall Jenner prove that the key to fashionably rocking a pair of sweats is to accessorize accordingly. Throwing on a stylish jacket, or adding a structured handbag and a cool pair of sunglasses, can quickly take a pair of joggers from lounging on the couch, to brunching with friends in seconds. {SHOP Joggers left}

In the past comfort and versatility were unheard of for being a main concern of any fashion designer. Wearing the same outfit for a multitude of activities seemed horribly wrong, but just as corsets have turned to Spanx, and skirts have turned to pants, active wear has now turned into a high fashion, trendy, every day look. Stores like Lululemon have paved the way for the Athleisure craze. The whole idea of athleisure wear is that workout clothes are no longer strictly for the gym. It’s all about taking the easy way out, in the most fashionable way possible. Athleisure has opened the door to a more casual lifestyle of wearing leggings for a night out, sneakers for a board meeting, and almost everything in between.  

Celebrities like Kate Hudson {Fabletics} and Beyonce {Ivy Park}, and fashion designers such as Tory Burch {Tory Sport} are all revolutionizing the way we wear active wear with their new and trendy active wear brands. With punchy prints, sporty graphics, and "tech-knits," these three active wear lines are transforming "work out clothes" into fashionable pieces that can be worn beyond the gym.

In addition to joggers, another athleisure wear trend that's been making a big statement this season is matching colors and patterns together. Pair the matching pieces together for one cohesive look or wear them separately to create two entirely unique looks; mixing and matching is easy with co-ord athleisure wear sets! They effortlessly take you in and out of the gym and to and from anywhere else your day may take you.

Here's how to wear these athleisure wear trends; instead of styling in a casual way, wear a pair of joggers or funky work out leggings with strappy heels and a sleek blazer. Finish the look off with fun statement accessories such as a necklace or shoulder grazing earrings, or even an embellished bag to achieve a full chic athleisure wear enemble. 

We beloieve athleisure wear isn’t just another fad. According to NPD, in the past year Americans spent $1 billion more dollars than the year before on shoes and clothes specifically from athleisure departments. As the athleisure market continues to adapt and evolve, it makes us wonder what other funky combos might be in store for us in the future of fashion? Perhaps black tie casual will be all the rave next season!
