Athleisure To Work Out In & Look Great In

Only a few years ago, the term “athleisure” would have been met with confusion, but in 2018, athleisure is proving to be one of the most popular and long-lasting fashion trends since blue jeans. It makes sense – it correlates with an overall shift in lifestyle that has made the world more committed to living better, healthier lives.

The athleisure/activewear trend exploded onto the fashion scene around 2016, blurring the line between clear-cut sportswear and everyday street clothing. The trend, it seems, is here to stay.

The numbers don’t lie. The athleisure/activewear industry took in more than $270 billion last year. Worldwide sneaker sales have increased 2%. Other companies, such as Under Armour, that remain devoted to performance sportswear have begun to suffer due to their lack of versatility – in other words, if it’s not fashionable to wear outside of the gym, people are buying less.

Even more high-fashion houses and beauty brands are adjusting their business models to grab onto the style of athleisure. For instance, Coach just released a line of pre-spring sneakers, and Tarte beauty brand has an entire line of long-lasting, waterproof cosmetics that are good to go while exercising. ELYSIAN looked to our favorite brands to pick some of our favorite athleisure pieces to keep you feeling confident whether or not you head to the gym:
