Casual Style is Creeping toward the Comfortable

There was once a time when a woman wearing her gym clothes to dine at the local trendy restaurant after a workout would have been gawked at by fellow dinners. Thankfully, that time is not now.

As leggings comfortably hug the thighs of women everywhere and stores become inundated with cute sneakers, flats, and sneaker-flats hybrids, it seems casual fashion is consistently creeping closer and closer to being all together more comfortable. Many women who were raised on the outdated equation “pain = beauty” can now, quite literally, breathe a sigh of relief. This new clothing style even has its own moniker – athleisure.

As causal clothing moves toward being more wearer friendly, even high-end designers and retailers are embracing the trend. Wikipedia has it that Fabletics shows in 2016 have been flooded with athleisure wear, and even the most trendy celebrities are regularly photographed looking both cute, and completely relaxed. At first glance it may seem that the athleisure trend only applies to t-shirts, leggings, and yoga pants, but this is not the case.

Casual tops,dresses, and skirts in sporty styles are also making their way on to the athleisure scene. But for those in the first stages of embracing this new trend, all of the options for athleisure can be a little overwhelming.

That’s where new online retailers like Fabletics can come in handy. Fabletics makes hopping on the athleisure wear trend a cinch. Each new customer takes a short quiz that helps the designers and stylists know which looks are right for that individual. Each month the subscriber gets to choose from a range of options that best suites her personal style needs.

All of Fabletics clothing options are cute and comfortable.
So relax, breathe, save the stilettos and the skin tight dresses for when you are accepting your Woman-of-the-Year Award, and throw on your trendiest tennis dress for dining out on a Saturday afternoon.
