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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
