The Not-So-Secret Reasons Behind the Rise of Athleisure Wear

The Not-So-Secret Reasons Behind the Rise of Athleisure Wear


Athleisure = Athletics + Leisure


The athleisure trend combines the comfort of your sports gear with the style of your casual clothes giving you the absolute best of both worlds. It’s a glorious mishmash of styles that pull together to give you an outfit you could wear to the supermarket, then to lunch with a friend and then off to the gym with minimal changing required!


To nail this trend, leggings are athleisure essentials. They offer the comfortable feel that the athleisure trend loves while still being versatile enough to dress up or down, depending on your mood or style.

Our Revitalise leggings are perfect for the athleisure trend. Designed for all-day wear, they combine the best of all our leggings for a stylish, comfortable and functional fit.


The unique fabric of our Revitalise collection is sweat-wicking and quick-dry, like our sports leggings. They're available in a variety of stylish colours, like our everyday leggings. And these leggings were created with the absolute softest fabric, like our lounge leggings - making them the perfect choice for all-day wear. A true hybrid.



The Reasons Behind the Rise of Athleisure Wear


Over the past few years, we’ve seen the athleisure trend trickle down through a myriad of high-profile celebs, models and influencers to street style and we have loved experimenting with our leggings to create cute athleisure wear outfits.


More recently, with everyone spending more time inside, the need for comfortable clothes (…that don’t just look like you’ve just changed into another pair of PJs) has skyrocketed. So what does athleisure wear have that your regular clothes don’t?!




Even if you haven’t been going out as much, you still want to know that you look good but you also need to feel good. Athleisure wear is created with a similar fabric to sports clothing which much stretchier to allow for more movement. But, even if all you’re doing is sitting on the sofa, stretchy fabrics are less restrictive meaning they won’t dig in or roll down so you can totally relax. But, unlike your other clothes, our Revitalise Athleisure leggings also tie in the super-soft feel of our lounge leggings for maximum comfort.



Because they’re activewear, they’re designed to support you in a way the regular clothes just don’t. The waistband of our new Revitalise Athleisure leggings, for example, have a deep high-rise waistband that offers extra control to enhancing your silhouette without digging in.



You’re never underdressed in cute athleisure wear AND you are always ready to go. Our Revitalise Athleisure leggings are as stylish as your casual clothes and they’re available in 4 gorgeous shades to suit any style. But they also have an added bonus that your jeans don’t: They’re sweat-wicking and quick-dry. Your day-to-day can get super busy, from running errands to chasing kids – it seems like you’re always on the go. You need clothes that can keep up. These durable athleisure leggings are the perfect hybrid between form and function so you can look and feel good, without a fuss.



Our athleisure leggings offer some great style options. They’re available in the ever-stylish Black and Navy Blue and the more contemporary colours Winter Berry and Mauve. And athleisure wear is super on-trend right now so you’ll look put together and in style.



If these reasons all sound fantastic to you, you need to try the Revitalise Leggings collection. Designed to fit and flatter at every size, there are so many ways to incorporate them into your wardrobe.
