Although you may not be exactly sure what athleisure is, you have probably seen it all around you. Athleisure is wearing activewear-inspired pieces in an everyday setting, usually in juxtaposition with more tailored or formal pieces.
There are many brands introducing athleisure lines, including designer brands like Tory Burch and Cynthia Rowley. Fashion moves to represent the contemporary ideals held in high esteem; the movements of each generation. Athleisure is in sync with the contemporary cultural identity, namely our obsession with health and fitness. Why not, then, make fashion inspired by sportswear? Why not wear carefully styled but comfortable clothes to the office or in your everyday life?

In order to try out the athleisure trend, pair contrasting pieces and always include a comfortable element. Here are some ideas on how to style pieces you may already own into athleisure outfits!
