Athleisure: Athleisure: gym clothing designed to be worn outside of the gym — like to work, dinner, gallery openings, red carpet events, funerals, EVERYWHERE!!! — by people who mostly gave up at life a long time ago.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but people don’t dress up anymore.

It’s not the 1950s.

There are no men in suits.

There are no women in long dresses (let alone in the kitchen where they belong).

People have been dressing down for a long time now.

And things have gotten even more informal with workout clothes as the new casual wear.

Yoga pants are no longer confined to the yoga studio.

Nor are sweatpants to the gym.

Nope, athleisure (athletic apparel plus leisure wear, since I have to spell everything out for you people) is the clothing of choice for boarding a flight, buying groceries, going to a business meeting.


Because hoodies, sports bras and leggings are comfy as fuck!

On top of that, it’s a wee bit too much fucking time and effort to have to change in and out of clothes when you can just wear the same shit all day.

And to think that people used to bitch and moan about jeans and t-shirts as the sign of Western decline!

I bet they’re longing for those bygone days!!!
