Remember when athleisure was cool? Lol me neither. This Frankenstein term was coined by the fashion industry about 3 years ago to describe the rising trend of activewear becoming ready to wear. Personally, I’ve always looked for reasons to wear basketball shorts, sweatpants, and hoodies for any occasion. (AKA a cozy boy.) At this point, the moniker is used to sell overpriced sports bra and leggings to people who only go to the gym to flex on the gram. (I mean, same but still.) Personally, I’m just waiting for the wave to be over, but until then I’ll be at work in my thrift store long sleeves tees and sneakers that cost way too much for me to be wearing them to half of the fleabag bars I go to.

Athleisure & Other Made Up Words

Athleisure (noun) – A made up word by the fashion industry, created to identify the trend of activewear becoming prevalent in ready-to-wear.

Here’s the thing, we really don’t need to explain why people want to be comfortable. Moms will always inappropriately wear their yoga pants and dudes will always wear basketball shorts even when ball isn’t life. I might be getting too old to claim the cozy boy life so I guess athlesuire will do for the time being. The cool thing about this is you can mix your high-end pieces with the regular stuff you can find in your average sporting goods stores. Case in point: these Wang track pants that I’ve worn with $5 white tees is a clutch look in the warm weather when you’re trying to keep it low key. (If you’re wondering the hierarchy of bottoms in the summer, it’s jorts>track pants>slouchy trousers>skinny jeans>dress pants.)
