Walk into any of your favorite clothing stores and you may notice an increase in athletic wear that's versatile enough to also be declared casual wear. That, ladies and gentleman, are what many in the fashion world are calling "athleisure". Athleisure is a fashion mix between trendy, business casual and comfortable. It is something that Deirdre Clemente, a professor of history at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas once told Business Insider is a "weird hybrid" that has created it's own lane as far as categories of clothing go.
My fashion faves do it well! This style not only looks more comfortable but it feels that way, too. Designers focus on creating clothes of this type that look and feel athletic/sporty but have a fashionable twist. Materials such as spandex, Lycra and other synthetic fibers are used to pull this off (Yahoo.com). I agree that these clothes truly fit our culture!
