â€˜Athleisureâ€™- one of the biggest global trends rocking (literally) the fashion world these daysâ€¦! Itâ€™s nothing but two wordsâ€¦ â€˜Atheleticâ€™ and â€˜Leisureâ€™! Simply put, itâ€™s just about wearing whatâ€™s typically supposed to look like â€˜sports-wearâ€™, to â€˜non-sportingâ€™, casual and social occasions! And itâ€™s been doing the rounds in India as well!
So if youâ€™ve seen people stroll into shopping malls in tracks and tees, wear jogger pants or leggings and sweatshirts to work and boxers and sneakers at cafesâ€¦ yep! Thatâ€™s athleisure for you! The essence of athleisure is in the fact that itâ€™s comfortable and low-key fashion, which reflects a very laidback and chilled-out state-of-mind! Iâ€™ve always maintainedâ€¦ how you feel, reflects in how you dress and visa versa! And this trend is one of those things, that simply â€˜lets you beâ€™!
However, just because it looks like joggers and tank tops, doesnâ€™t mean you should actually wear your gym-wear to work! Athleisure wear, is after-all, a style statement in its own right! You canâ€™t let it look drab! Hence, brands have started making â€˜athleisure-wearâ€™, which is clothes that look like sports-wear, but which have a more sophisticated aura of style around them!Â Theyâ€™re cool and casual, yet fashionable and stylish!
Yet, if you do want to wear your gym wear to the mall, make sure you add a couple of stylish elements like a casual jacket or a sexy sling bag to create that fashionable aura! Wear casual kicks and not running shoesâ€¦ after all, the mall is not a treadmill! ðŸ˜‰
So hereâ€™s a look I put together, wearing these lovely mint green jogger pants and tank top, both from Bewakoof.com! Bewakoof, just as the name suggests, has a lot of fun and funky casual-wear for both men & womenâ€¦ perfect for you to find your athleisure outfit for every possible occasion! ðŸ˜‰
I tried on a couple of jackets, both of which lend a different touch to the look. The Orange short jacket makes it a more vibrant and energetic. Thatâ€™s the look I wore a few days back for a movie afternoon by myself, followed by some books shopping at Crossword! But this is also something that Iâ€™d love to wear when Iâ€™m going out chilling with the girls or even to office on a working weekend! ðŸ™‚
The second look with the washed out denim jacket is more laid-back and instantly makes you feel â€˜like a looong vacationâ€™! Iâ€™d love to wear that when Iâ€™m travelingâ€¦ on a road trip or even to the airport! Itâ€™s just one of those outfits that you can wear, get your music and a book and take off!!
