Athleisure is a clothing style that is characterized by wearing sports apparel for activities outside of athletic activities. Athleisure outfits often consist of yoga pants, sneakers, shorts, and hoodies. It is most commonly thought the introduction of athleisure as a theme was due to women wearing yoga pants in everyday settings and creating a trend. Whatever the origin of athleisure, this is a growing trend and as such fashion and sportswear companies should utilize it.
