Why The “Athleisure” Trend Is The Best Trend Ever

Because who doesn’t want to be comfy all day long?

Why The “Athleisure” Trend Is The Best Trend Ever
Crossroads Trading

Athleisure is a trend in which clothing made for exercise is used for lounging and everyday activities instead. Athleisure is the newest emerging trend that everyone is wearing. Famous people are more than often caught strutting the streets in workout gear with a cute jacket to add some style, and it has even become such a thing that department stores like Nordstrom have created a section to luck under called “Athleisure.”

While wearing sweats and yoga pants to class has always been a thing, now it’s trendy. Now, instead of wondering if it’s socially acceptable to go to class in the sweats you wore to sleep last night, you can just wake up and head right to class without having to carefully decide. Not only is this trend super convenient and quick, it also makes you look sporty and like you workout, (when you really don’t).

You also can literally find new pieces to wear anywhere and they can be super cheap and affordable, or you could go all out and get everything from Lulu Lemon. All you need are some leggings and joggers, a cute t-shirt, and a solid colored zip up or sweatshirt to wear if it’s cold or to wrap around your waist. This is the easiest trend ever to put together.

Another thing that makes an athleisure outfit is the always cute and handy oversized bomber or jean jacket. Instead of wearing a sweatshirt, if you want to look a little more together you could wear a cute sweater and a scarf if it’s colder.

You can find a good athleisure outfit anywhere, but I wouldn’t recommend spending too much money on easy articles like joggers or leggings, because you can find them virtually anywhere. With celebrities doing collaborations with sports wear brands like Puma and Nike, you can find some more expensive and high end workout gear for not working out which is undoubtably really cute, but also not really affordable. If you’re looking for basics, Forever 21, H&M, and Victoria’s Secret are good places to look.

While you’d think people would talk about you or say you look sloppy, no one will say anything because everyone’s wearing it. Wearing athleisure doesn’t make you look sloppy. People will comment on how cute and comfortable you look and you didn’t even have to try hard. The athleisure trend totally promotes laziness which is perfect for an early morning class. The best thing about this trend is that everyone can pull it off, and everyone can feel cute, comfortable, and trendy when they don’t feel like putting together an entire outfit.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
