Fashion Buzz: Athleisure Trend

0cb18025a34aa71c406caeda078002daThe new buzz in fashion is athleisure. You’re probably thinking, “What in the world is that?”  Athleisure is a new trend for gals like me, too lazy to put much effort in an outfit but desiring to be fashionable and cute!  It’s the gym-to-office work look that’s stylish enough to put on a bold lip and heels and roll out for a night with the ladies!

I was overwhelmingly excited to see this athleisure trend become so popular. Even designer clothing store Net-a-porter added a new retail channel dedicated to “sportswear that is as chic as everything else in your closet.” What a sigh of relief right?!

Yeah I’m that girl that will wear legging/jeggings everywhere. It’s kind of cliche that leggings have found their niche into everyday fashion considering many fashionistas frown upon “loungewear” in public.

Let’s think about it….when’s the last time you wore a pair of jeans that were comfortable or fit your body like a glove? When is the last time we had a pair of jeans that fit our thick thunder thighs, or weren’t so long we were forced to wear a pair of heels, or were just flat out unflattering? Oh, just me?  Oh okay….I’m a little thick, fit, and petite 5’1″ female and I have the darnedest times finding jeans that fit perfectly.

Fashion is being comfortable while living everyday life.  Fashion is feeling confident in your outfit even when you’re running late and had to quickly throw something together. You don’t have time to stuggle with a pair of jeans to later worry about your crack guest appearing throughout the day.  Get you a pair of leggings and viola!  Hello perfect fit…where have you been all my life?! Sneaking up on me giving me that perfect waistline and booty pop!

There’s so many styles and designs to choose from!  What do you think? Would you prefer jeans over leggings/jeggings?

Take a look at a few outfits that I absolutely love!
