At the beginning of the year, Savoir Flair predicted that athleisure was on track to be the biggest trend of 2016, and we weren’t wrong. Not only is this evidenced by the rising number of celebrities who are now pairing sporty crop tops with professional polished pieces, but also by the fact that dozens of brands and celebrities have launched athleisure lines, including Tory Burch with Tory Sport and Beyoncé with Ivy Park.
Included in the widespread takeover of the athleisure trend is the new seasonal nature of fitness products, which formerly came in neutral colors and now are available in a wide array of materials, hues, and patterns. More women than ever are taking this trend beyond casual circumstances and incorporating it into their workwear wardrobe by dressing up cool leggings with crisp blazers and killer heels or tennis skirts with leather moto jackets.
