Not too long ago, the term “athleisure” could have dropped off the face of the planet and no one would have bat an eyelash. Today, growing out of the “yoga pant phase”, athleisure style is more appealing than ever. From music superstars & fashion muses to professional athletes (the list goes on), the trend has caught on like wildfire. Designers, retailers and fashion know-it-alls are excited, because the reaction has been tremendous and collaborations are top of the line. With help from Nike & Under Armour, athleisure style is once again center stage and doesn’t fail to perform.
