Today’s designers and retailers seem obsessed with athleisure clothing, or clothing that’s suitable for leisure pursuits, athletic pursuits or a combination of the two. This type of clothing can include anything from designer leggings to stylish gym clothes and owes some of its origin to people who love to wear yoga pants everywhere they go and for all types of occasions.
Functional, fashionable clothing for healthy lifestyles
Athleisure appears to be more than a trend as an increasing number of companies have announced that they’re entering the market with their own versions of chic sportswear. People who embark on healthier lifestyles want more options in fashionable, functional and comfortable clothing that can transition from work to the gym.
One of the most popular brands offering such items is Fabletics, co-founded by actress and busy mom, Kate Hudson. Fabletics commercials featuring Kate Hudson wearing stylish workout wear have made everyone aware that they can receive their first outfit for $25 with free shipping. Now she and Fabletics are taking stylish comfort even further.
Rethinking the little black dress
After a day spent in confining work clothes or even in comfortable workout attire, the idea of putting on a sexy, yet movement restrictive little black dress lacks appeal for many women. Marie Claire exclusively reported that Fabletics offers exactly what these women need with their new line of athleisure dresses introduced this spring.
The development of dresses in the Fabletics line followed the natural progression of the brand that focuses on the needs of today’s active women who want to enjoy a night out while looking and feeling beautiful in “casual” clothing.
Some of the dresses have bras built in for convenience and comfort but even those that don’t, have designs meant to be easy to put on. Although not intended for exercise such as aerobics, the dresses consist of the same performance materials that move with and shape a woman’s body with the perfect level of comfort and style.
