378x147_cardsLeggings are by far the most versatile staple you will probably have in your dresser. It has been in fashion since circa 2008 and shows no signs of going out of style. Workout trends such as heated yoga, barré, and zumba have all gained popularity within around that same time, and with that came the idea of dressing chic while working out. As working out became popular again, so did the idea of athleisure, where we all seem to appear athletic even if we aren’t. It could be assumed that the more athleisure you wear, the more motivated you are to stay active. There is a technique to transition from the gym to happy hour without looking too much like you are always at the gym. In fact, if you are in shape, athleisure is an awesome way to show off your figure:

Moral of the story: Athleisure can be pulled off in and out of the gym, but remember to bring it back to reality when off-duty. You don’t want to resemble Hilary Swank in The Million Dollar Baby when you are headed to happy hour so know when to add some polish in there when needed. This goes without saying, but obviously don’t wear workout clothes in an off-duty style AFTER your workout without a trip through the washer (hello, BO!)
