These are comfortable and stylish clothing typically designed for exercise or sports but worn outdoors.

The trend of wearing athletic wears for other purposes apart from sports began in the 1980s and 1990s with the hip-hop movement.

We had people wearing tracksuits, basketball jerseys, tennis headbands and so on.

In recent times, athleisure in women’s fashion has become a booming industry. Brands like ivy park by Adidas, Nike, Puma, Kim Kardashian’s Skims are leveraging on this trend.

This is the go-to athleisure wear for women. This look is usually completed with sneakers.

This isn’t exactly athleisure because you cannot exercise in them, the cut and fit of a latex bodysuit definitely exude athleisure vibes.

These days tracksuits can be styled with heels or sneakers.

These are the most comfortable athleisure wear. They are perfect for travelling.
