Next on the agenda is Athleisure.
I know, a strange amalgamated word. What does it even mean?
I first heard this description in New York some years ago and I guess it makes sense. Athletic wear turned into comfortable dressing wear. My only reservation is when it becomes “everyday” wear as opposed to “weekend” or “taking it easy wear”. Which is not to say I don’t like feeling comfortable and cosy, I do but I also like to keep it for when I really need it. That’s not every day.
I’m a fan of the cosy after a long day or when I’m feeling under the weather. I dress down on the weekends if a long walk is on and I especially like to put on the tracks and sweatshirt on a Sunday night. That’s my idea of heaven.
Athleisure wear is one kind of clothing I do try and pick up during the sales. Other than colour and texture, it rarely changes so it is the perfect moment to take advantage of reductions. Two for one has always appealed to me :)
There is no reason why we shouldn’t look good in it though. xv
