Athleisure wear has been a favourite for most of us for about 2 years now. Since the pandemic hit us, we all have been at home, curled up in our blankets, working from home in our pajamas. Athleisure wear gave us fashion and comfort at the same time.
What Is Athleisure?
Athleisure is a word that has derived from two words, ‘athletics’ meaning sports and ‘leisure’ meaning free time. The word athleisure roughly translates to the comfort clothing we wear that makes an appearance in the fashion world but also gives us the comfort we desire the most.
Athleisure is a type of clothing that is good to go in case of events as well as at home. People tend to wear athleisure to their workspaces as it has the edge and the comfort to be able to give you the comfort to keep working for hours at a stretch.
Why Has It Become Popular In India?
In India, or for a matter of fact, just about anywhere in the world, people have limited time to dress up nowadays and are inclined to wear whatever they spot first in their closets. Putting together athleisure wear is an easy task. It doesn’t take much effort and time. There is no hassle of ironing the clothing before wearing it out.
Women In Athleisure
In India, many celebrities from the Bollywood industry have been spotted wearing athleisure outfits on many occasions. Parineeti Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha, Athiya Shetty Mouni Roy, and many more have been spotted wearing athleisure on several occasions, usually at the airports.
It is often at the airport that the paparazzi spot a celebrity in athleisure and it gives us a whole new vibe to our daily existence, doesn’t it?
Men In Athleisure
Athleisure is not just for women, but also the men. Handsome men like Ranveer Singh and Hrithik Roshan are often spotted wearing athleisure as their comfortable clothes, in and out of the house.
Athleisure is not only limited to celebrities these days. Common people like us get a shot at wearing things the celebrities wear on a daily basis. There are some brands that have introduced the concept of athleisure wear in India for us.
