STYLE GURU STYLE: Athleisure Mesh Leggings

STYLE GURU STYLE: Athleisure Mesh Leggings

One of the better trends to have emerged in recent years is the blending of athletic clothes, like yoga pants, and everyday items. This trend, known as athleisure, is the perfect mix of comfort and style. I’m all about keeping my wardrobe’s comfort level as high as possible, so whenever I’m given the chance to make leggings and sneakers a part of my outfit, I definitely take that opportunity.

So when I found these awesome mesh leggings, I knew that they would be the perfect trendy piece for my closet. I paired them with a cute graphic T-shirt, olive green cargo jacket, and my favorite bright Nike sneakers to add some extra fun and comfort to the look. This trend, which has been popular for many seasons, has grown exponentially among the college crowd. Maybe it’s the fact that celebrities like Kylie Jenner are often seen sporting leggings and crop tops, or maybe it’s the fact that the look requires less effort and provides more comfort. Either way, this look seems like it’s here to stay as more and more companies are jumping on the athleisure train.

I have to say that celebrities have a huge role in this part of the fashion world. With Beyonce’s IVY PARK line hitting stores last year and more celebrities choosing to wear casual looks, it’s no question why the younger generations, like myself, are sporting, well, sports attire.

The years of dressing up definitely aren’t over, in fact, one of my favorite things to do is get all ‘done up’ with makeup, a polished dress, and some quality accessories. However, the huge stigma about leggings as pants is definitely a thing of the past. Us millennials are taking comfort into the fashion world and this trend doesn’t have any signs of slowing down.
