There was a time not so long ago when athleisure wear was fashionable! Now it’s become fashion for too many! Seriously, I am tired of yoga pants from the 6am gym class to the 5pm cocktail hour and beyond. I think the sweatpants (leggings, yoga pants, etc.) are here to stay, but I think it’s replacing our fashion creativity and it’s making people lazy in a big-time way!
Athleisure wear is defined as a trend in fashion in which clothing designed for workouts and athletic activities are worn at other settings such as workplace etc.. You get the idea. Really, I for one do not want to wear the same pants I worked out in all day long… sorry not for me. I prefer not to call it fashion but leave it in a league of its’ own. I feel guilty calling glorified sweatpants fashion….
I want fashion and fashion bold back front and center. I love to dress up and maybe it’s an age related phenom! Please do feel free to comment and let us know what you think! The last thing I will comment about along with athleisure wear sales growth is the fact that black tie clothes are also growing in sales numbers. Roughly 4 percent per quarter. So what this says is that people don’t really dress up during the work week, but for the black tie affair, people are “deckin to the NINES!” Now you have my attention……. Thanks for the read, Jackie
