Wikipedia describes athleisure wear as a “trend in fashion in which clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as the workplace, at school, or at other casual or social occasions.”
I personally describe it as….I have two small children, I’m tired, we have 3.5 seconds to get to school on time so that’s a big N-O to hair or makeup or anything fancy and I WISH I was going to the gym in these clothes but I have 4200 other things to accomplish today so I’m wearing….this….athleisure wear….and most likely, a hat too.
Luckily for us mamas, this “trend in fashion” has seriously taken off and we actually have tons of picks when it comes to finding the best athleisure wear fashion!
On the off chance you’ve watched something other than Disney Channel lately, you may have seen commercials or online ads for Fabletics, Kate Hudson’s super cute and comfy athleisure wear brand! This year they opened 24 stores and one store has found a home in our very own PALM BEACH COUNTY, at Town Center Mall in Boca Raton.
I recently met with the assistant manager and asked the athleisure wear questions that we’re all wondering about. Because listen – Kate’s body is FLAW-LESS, but mamas like me…well, I won’t be baring my midriff anytime soon. So ladies, I’m here for you. I’ve got tips, tricks, and fabulous answers to your top athleisure wear questions. Here we GO!
Which outfit will make me look like I put forth effort, without actually having to put forth any effort? (Also, it needs to stay looking fresh from 6:30 A.M. through baseball practice.)
ANSWER: Salar Leggings and Daria Tunic! The Salar legging is ready to stretch, bend and hit the streets (and look cute while doing it!). One review even says that these leggings are “suuuuuuper flattering” and *bonus* for Floridians, the material is “thick but NOT too hot.” Check and check!
Which leggings suck everything in and flatten the trouble tummy area?
ANSWER: High Waisted POWERHOLD 7/8 ! This legging is longer than a capri but not full length. The “powerhold” material offers maximum compression sucking it ALL in on the days you need it most! Take all my money Kate!
What is the most flattering outdoor outfit for HOT Florida days at the park, practice, etc?
ANSWER: Gia Powerlite Capri and Delta Seamless Tank! This capri is made with lightweight, super sweat wicking material making it perfect for those humid Florida days. (You know they’re coming.) The Delta tank is soft, seamless, and easy to layer if you’re running into the store or school and need to throw a jacket on top.
