The trend with the untranslatable name athleisure, formed from the confluence of the two words athletic and leisure, began in the United States a couple of decades ago. Ranked as the most athletic nation, Americans didn't bother changing after morning jogging, walking into the office or showing up for lunch in a strange mix of formal wear and athletic uniforms. The long and convoluted process of the influence of sportswear and formal wear on each other - from exterior design to technical subtleties in the creation of materials and things - eventually gave rise to the style that has designated the main fashion trend today. And it seems that it will not give up its positions for a long time.

Athleisure's main style trick is mixing real sportswear with casual. Young, well-formed girls often prefer leggings or yoga pants over jeans. Sports pants can be easily enriched with designer clothing, say, hip-hop: street fashion and MTV are part of athleisure. For the city and for the club - ideal, but "free artists" can be in this form and work - colleagues will only appreciate.

In the complex interweaving of street and catwalk fashion, it is difficult to say who follows whom and who imitates whom. For the last few seasons, designers, for example, have been actively interpreting the once purely sporting things, performing them in expensive materials. Joggers or joggers are some of the most popular at the shows. Everything seems to be recognizable - cuffs, a belt with ties, and even stripes - but silk or thin wool as the main material and the proximity to stilettos, lacquered oxfords or a dress jacket make seemingly sporty things appropriate even in the theater, and even more so at a cocktail or a party.

Designers transform sweatshirts, sweatshirts and sweatshirts in the same way. Ordinary things from a traditional gray footer are decorated with rhinestones, rivets or embroidery, sometimes handmade. In them it will be possible to go out to a feast and to the world - it all depends on the selected accessories. Olympics made of silk or, for example, with brocade inserts, are no less comfortable than their “colleagues” from the gym. However, in alliance with fashionable wide trousers and sneakers, they open the doors where a real “sportswoman” is ordered to enter.

Many girls prefer real sports tops, which, by the way, have become much more interesting in terms of design due to athleisure. Short tops in our latitudes can not be worn for a long time, but as long as the weather permits, together with classic trousers and a knitted cardigan, they create a comfortable and well-timed ensemble for early autumn.
For men, in cool weather, a vest or pullover can be easily changed to an olympic jacket. And if it is permissible to put on neutral sneakers in the office with a backpack on your back, then you will be the first guy. And why not take advantage of real sports gear? The lightest quilted vest or, for example, a blouson with down, which is preferred by skiers, should be worn under a raincoat or coat in the first cold weather - this will allow you to walk light for some time.
The role of sports shoes today is difficult to overestimate, and it is even more difficult to classify sneakers and sneakers. Let's note in general that there are footwear purely for sports, that is, for running, cycling and other things. Another type of sports footwear is the so-called lifestyle sneakers, which are not technically intended for exercise, but are appropriate and fashionable in any other context.

Their shapes, materials, colors and decor are so diverse that they are often not just shoes, but the fruit of design and engineering ideas. For men, this is all the more relevant. Even the most conservative of the stronger sex can express themselves with just one shoe - this is a move that is both safe and winning.
