These Looks Prove The Athleisure Trend Is All The Rage

Athleisure is here to stay.

I'm not sure who coined the term "athleisure" but I am all the way here for it. Don't know what it is? Well, first of all, it's a look that has been absolute clutch in this pandemic with most of us quarantining and working from home. It's a combination between athletic wear and leisure wear. It's comfortable enough to wear around the house but it's also cute enough to run errands or to pick up quarantine snacks. And these days, it's the trend that doesn't seem like it plans on letting up anytime soon.

In order to dive deeper into this highly coveted trend, I looked to two of my absolute favorite influencers Marche' Robinson and Erica Fae to show you exactly how to rock athleisure wear.

Marche' Robinson stuns in Nike, be it neon green or orange. The brand has the best colorways in both their shoes and clothes and they make it super easy to rock the monochromatic look with their athleisure wear. When the weather changes, the bike shorts can easily be swapped out for a pair of leggings.

See what I mean? Erica Fae's monochromatic athleisure set from Body By Raven Tracy looks so bomb with leggings. I love how Erica paired her set with plush slippers that are perfect for relaxing.

This may be TMI but traditional bras are one item that I haven't used a lot since we've been quarantining. I mean really, what is the reason? But I absolutely have been all about the sports bra. When paired with bike shorts or leggings, it adds some sexy while still maintaining comfort. Heading out to get more snacks? Throw on a cute light jacket like Marche' has up above.

Champion is the OG of athletic wear! Marche' paired a matching bodysuit with her Champion sweats. The versatility of sweatpants is unmatched.

I am obsessed with all things one piece: bodysuits, rompers, overalls, you name it; so when I saw Marche' rocking this Nike sports bodysuit I definitely made sure to grab one too! It is so comfortable and it is a whole look. They're still available at Nike.com so you'd better get one while you can.

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
