The 7 Best Athleisure finds in South Africa, to help you up your style game.
Athleisure (noun): casual clothing — like yoga pants, sweat pants, and hoodies — that are designed to be worn both for exercising and for doing (almost) everything else.
The word that dates back to 1979 has made its way into mainstream living with the Merriam-Webster dictionary putting it under “words we’re watching”. Expect to see “athleisure” in their next edition.
If you don’t know the term “athleisure”, you’re probably familiar with the look. Athletic wear inspired by the latest fashion trends has become the new casual wear. No intention to engage in exercise is necessary.
When athletic wear was purely the domain of major sports-wear brands, it followed function not fashion. As more people want functional fashion that blurs the lines between gym classes and everyday wardrobe, athleisure has become a big business.
Not only are the big brands like Nike, Adidas, New Balance and Puma stepping up their game and bringing out more versatile and trendy pieces, but new brands are popping up with athleisure wear as their main business.
To help you achieve your athleisure A-game we’ve rounded up the 7 best athleisure finds in South Africa at every price range. View the slideshow below to see our top picks (click the arrows to view the next slide)
