What’s Athleisure? What’s Casual Wear?

Style Evolution Part 2 | Athleisure: Blurring the Lines Between Athletic and Casual

Athleisure is a combination of two clothing styles: athletic and leisure. The trend blends athletic wear with everyday clothing. Through improvements in technology and textile techniques, athletic wear was developed to be more comfortable and stylish. As more people embraced jogging and aerobics, clothing brands like Adidas and Nike began producing stylish and functional sportswear that could be worn outside the gym. The hybrid is an innovation we didn’t think we needed; it is so functional and versatile that you don’t have to clad yourself in the hard jean fabric for a long while.

Style Evolution Part 2 – The Evolution of Athleisure

The 1980s and 1990s saw sportswear gain mainstream fashion acceptance. Tracksuits, sneakers, and branded sweatshirts became popular, influenced by hip-hop culture and sports icons like Michael Jordan. The decade’s obsession with logos and branding helped cement sportswear as a fashion statement. The early 2000s marked a shift towards wellness and physical health. Yoga has become a global athletic trend. Brands like Lululemon capitalised on this trend by creating stylish, high-performance activewear. Yoga pants and leggings have become a big trend and an important item in every wardrobe.

2010s: Athleisure Explosion

The 2010s witnessed the explosion of athleisure, driven by changing lifestyles and the rise of social media influencers. Comfort and functionality became priorities, with leggings, sports bras, and hoodies dominating fashion runways and streetwear alike. The integration of technology, such as moisture-wicking fabrics and ergonomic designs, further blended the lines between athletic and casual wear.

2020-Present: Sustainable and Luxury

Today, athleisure continues to thrive, with a growing emphasis on sustainability and luxury. Brands are incorporating eco-friendly materials and ethical production practices, responding to consumer demand for environmentally conscious fashion. High-end designers like Stella McCartney and Alexander Wang have also embraced athleisure, creating collections that merge luxury with athletic aesthetics.
