How To Master This Season’s Most Laid-Back Trend


If the term “athleisure” is new to your vocabulary, allow us to elaborate: As the hybrid moniker would imply, the trend encompasses any number of comfortable, casual looks suitable for sporty or leisurely activities. Though perhaps slightly contradictory (running a marathon and strolling your neighborhood shops are not comparable athletic pursuits), think of it as an all-inclusive way to define the comfort-first uptake in how modern women dress for daytime (hello, yoga pants at brunch). With bold-faced names collaborating on sportswear collections and ready-to-wear lines like Theory getting in on the action, this trend looks like it has legs (likely ones decked in some sort of track pant). So whether you work out or just want to look casually cool at all times, allow these outfits to bring a sportswear-minded approach to your ensembles this season.
