Fame has a lot to do with what’s in and what’s trending. Over the years, we’ve gotten our fashion trends from celebrities or famous social/fashion icons. Seeing them wear something, no matter how vulgar, insecure, or crazy it may be, gives us the motivation or confidence to want to wear it ourselves.

Athleisure is all about wearing what you already own and making it something you want to have! Don’t think those loose jogging pants or big shirts are just for breaking sweats. With the right accessories and a mixture of confidence and attitude, you can run all day and party all night with the Athleisure trend!
