15 Black-Owned Activewear Brands Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Be Supporting

I'll pretty much try any trend in the name of fashion. Even if I'm not particularly intrigued by something, I'll try it anyway just to say I did. Athleisure was the exception to that rule for me.

I was never the type of person to feel comfortable in wearing leggings as pants (Blair Waldorf famously hated the idea pre-athleisure trend). I'll wear leggings and a sweatshirt to a workout class, but I'll change out of it as soon as physically possible. Sports bras were only meant for workouts — never to be paired with biker shorts, denim jacket, and brunch.

I haven't yet fully jumped on the bandwagon, but I'd call myself athleisure-curious. While I'm not wearing a sports bra and leggings on a picnic, I'll occasionally wear them when I'm at running errands or sitting at home and just want to be comfortable.

As I find myself getting more and more curious about the trend, I'm looking for fun, unique brands to support. Within the Black community in particular is a multitude of artists who aren't just making your standard gym essentials — they're making age-old pieces fun and vibrant with bold prints, colors, and even unique fabrics.

You'll want to support each and every one of them, whether you're just following them on Instagram, or buying your way through their entire collection.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

JoinOneLove

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

Well, this school year has come to a close, and it's off to having fun in the sun. For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall. And you get to see all your old friends, the ones who came home anyway. You'll also see people you haven't talked to since you graduated that you were really okay with never seeing again. If you are going home for the summer, here are some things that will happen to you.

Airports

Because the best part of flying isn't the flying.

Airports

I’m not sure that many would consider their airport experience to be “fun.” It is either boredom or panic, layovers so long that you forget what the outside world looks like or connections that are made by the skin of your teeth. It is the decision between buying expensive food and starving; it is hunting for outlets (because the airports I’ve been in seem to have about five); it is the stress of making it through security without being that person who holds up everyone else. In short, it is stressful and time-consuming.
