These Looks Prove The Athleisure Trend Is All The Rage

Athleisure is here to stay.

Style

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.

With a YouTube channel that boasts millions of views from her hair and skincare tutorials, beauty influencer Candice Jones knows what it takes to look great on the outside. But when it came to her mental wellbeing, Jones started feeling a disconnect. “Because a lot of the things that I was seeing on social media like: take a bath, pour you some wine,” Jones tells xoNecole about her initial attempts at self-care. “I was doing all of those aesthetic things, but it wasn't making me feel better.”

This Full-Time Content Creator Went From Making $15 An Hour To Six Figures In A Year

Money Talks is an xoNecole series where we talk candidly to real women about how they spend money, their relationship with money, and how they get it.

Full-time content creator Yvette Corinne has made waves in the content creation space. On the outside looking in, while some might feel like you have to have hundreds of thousands of followers in order to make a full-time living as an influencer, Yvette has managed to bring in six figures with a highly engaged Instagram community of more than 24,000 followers. And how did she do it? Well, her journey to wealth wasn't one without struggle. The Los Angeles-based micro-influencer got her start in content creation through blogging in 2016. That would lead to her growing her following on Instagram, which allowed her to balance her part-time retail job with being a part-time content creator.
