Look, it’s not as though we’re opposed to pulling on a pair of jeans, but there’s something about spending a weekend in workout clothes that just makes you feel 10 times more productive — not to mention comfortable! We’re not the only ones who would opt for lycra over denim either — athleisure is being embraced on the runways by designers like Stella McCartney and Alexander Wang. Celebrities too recognize the style potential of sporty threads, with Beyoncé launching her own active line, Ivy Park, and Kate Hudson at the helm of fitness brand Fabletics. Even Whitney Port and Jessica Simpson have collaborated on their own respective activewear lines in the past two years.
So while some women are busy looking up #ootd inspo on Instagram, you’ll find us scrolling through the thousands of inspiring snaps under #athleisure hunting for outfit inspiration. It’s here that fitness stars are ‘gramming cool ways to wear new pieces from Nike, Adidas, Lululemon, Lorna Jane, with high fashion styling partners. However, to save you the effort of scrolling on and on, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite stylish and sporty accounts on IG to inspire your own athleisure closet.
