    Athleisure on a Budget

    Over the past four years, Athleisure has become mainstream fashion. For those of us that don’t know, Athleisure is a trend in which clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as at the workplace, at school, or at other casual or social occasions. The idea is that gym or workout clothes make their way out of the gym , becoming a larger part of one’s everyday wardrobe.
