Trend of the Week:  “Athleisure”
“One of the biggest trends in the fashion and retail worlds today is the rise of ‘athleisure’ – athletic apparel that people can wear in non-athletic settings. Think of women wearing yoga pants for a night out after work. Think of CEOs wearing sneakers to board meetings. Athletic-casual wear has become increasingly acceptable for use in a wide variety of social situations, and consumers are quickly jumping on the trend.” -Text source:
