Athleisure Is Still Trending – And We’re Here For It

The comfy and cool athleisure trend is going nowhere.



Activewear is definitely the trend that keeps on giving and has moved far beyond simple workout wear into our everyday wardrobes. Comfortable and casual, activewear has taken the world of fashion by storm and there is no shortage of cool pieces to shop online.

The beauty of athleisure is that you can get many miles out of your outfits. Beyond exercise, athleisure is ideal for a coffee or lunch date, or even weekend drinks. Wear it on the school run, to the gym, when out running errands or meeting friends. Thanks to celebs such as superfans Kylie Jenner and Bella Hadid, this trend shows no signs of going anywhere. Lucky for you, we’ve found five activewear outfits that are right on-trend – and that you can shop right here, right now.
