Why the Athleisure Trend Needs to Die

by LAURA MCGUIRE

 

 

Athleisure wear rocked the fashion world for quite a while. This style entered the market as an alternative to baggy sweatpants and T-shirts at the gym (so, it had its heart in the right place) but quickly turned into a national catch-all. Women can be found wearing athleisure to the grocery store, out to dinner, and in the workplace. Some companies have stepped in with policies on yoga pants like they do flip-flops.

What Impression Do You Want to Make?

However, no matter how trendy the outfit is or how comfortable it may feel, it still gives the impression of a gym look. Your athleisure outfit may signal that you are "ready for a run," but what you are really doing is "running errands." When you're out with friends or especially at work, is sweat tech wear really the impression you want to share? The truth is that this trending fashion statement has been overplayed for years and now it tends to just offer a lazy look.

Is this really how you want to present yourself, especially in the workplace? Miuccia Prada once said, "What you wear is how you present yourself to the world ... fashion is an instant language." First impressions really do make a difference. How you look, and how you present yourself can impact your career. How you dress directly affects how others perceive you and even how productive and confident you are.

Athleisure wear still has its place in your wardrobe -- for times you really are going to the gym. The truth is that unless you're Jillian Michaels, there's no need for athleisure wear outside the gym.

Athleisure Wear Stylish Alternative

Fortunately, this everyday fashion trend is finally starting to pack its bags. Sure, women want to be comfortable when they go out, and this makes perfect sense. Women have a right to be comfortable with their body and in their clothes.
