If there's one style of men’s clothing that's really having its moment in the sun, it is men's athleisure wear. You can't go anywhere these days without seeing someone in clothing that's sporty, but more put-together than sweats, and at the same time, less dressy than a starched collared shirt. Men’s athleisure has made its way into the board room in ways that no other style of clothing has in decades. Gone is the formal overdressed pompous look of the past. Why not admit that we all want to be comfortable? We can be both relaxed and modern-looking wearing men’s athleisure, and today I want to talk about this cool subject because there are more Things you should know about men's athleisure.
One mistake people often make when it comes to men's clothing is that being comfy means looking sloppy. From pajama-style stained sweatpants to shirts so faded, they look like they've been washed thousands of times, your schlepping around clothes should not see the outside of your bedroom. But, today there is another option. Thanks to the booming trend of athleisure, a man can now look good and feel good at the same time, no matter where he happens to be. Take a look around, wherever you happen to be, and you’ll probably see at least one man in nylon microfiber joggers and another in a logo-less merino-wool pullover. Moisture-wicking running shorts and louvered tees and paper-thin zip vests, all done up in colors that can vaguely be described as “charcoal” or “heather.” These are the hallmarks of the latest men’s fashion trend described as athleisure.
If you’ve been asked to work-from-home, don’t take conference calls in your pajamas, hoodies, or whatever you just slept in. Look to athleisure, which has gone from an obscure reference to a brand. The best athleisure wear combines original fabrics, classic shapes, and utilitarian wearability that makes them perfect for lounging around the house, grocery store errands, or your outdoor workouts. Already, men are aiming to sport their technical leisure apparel across a variety of different spaces, eager to show off their athleisure wear collection. Wearing athleisure here in Silicon Valley, I can tell you, it's almost like you belong to a secret club that understands that this is new business apparel. If you don't wear it, forget about your promotion.
Athleisure is here to stay, there are simply too many people too invested in this style to think it will go away anytime soon. And why would feeling comfortable while working ever go away? Athleisure can be summed up at the best thing that could have happened to your sense of style. You will no longer be teased by your friends, family, and coworkers for looking unkempt. You will never again have to choose form over function, or vice versa when it comes to your wardrobe.
No, athleisure wear for men is going to be there to support all of you tough fashion choices, so you can live your most comfortable life.
Some of your favorite brands have already begun to focus heavily on the emerging athleisure wear style. You can find many of the best pieces online, or at your local mall or sporting wear store. I always shop online and find the latest trends and best selection there. One of the best pieces you can start with is a zip pullover, this has been my go-to shirt for so many different events and I can't think of a situation where it would be out of place. I really can't recommend trying some men’s athleisure wear gear enough. This clothing style has truly done wonders for my wardrobe and my confidence levels.
