CEBU FASHION BLOG - What is Athleisure? Well, you can find a lot of definitions on the internet. But personally, I think athleisure is active wear and casual dressing combined.


Athleisure has grown so popular that almost every celebrity and social media influencer gravitated to this trend. Why? I think the answer is quite simple. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort to fashion anymore. Most style and fashion bloggers would agree that being comfortable with what you are wearing is the ultimate style goal. Gone are the days when you have to sacrifice comfort just to look stylish. Thus, the rise of activewear or athleisure. The term is not just an idea or a metaphor. Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines athleisure  as “casual clothing meant to be worn both for exercising and for general use.” See? Even the dictionary approves of this trend.




What I am wearing is a classic shirt from Adidas which is definitely sporty. I can wear this in the gym while doing some push ups or bench presses. I confess that even in the gym, I keep my colors coordinated because it keeps me comfortable. Hahaha Anyway, the pants I am wearing is from the ukay-ukay (thrift shop). I got them at only Php 80. I actually have a good back story before I bought them. I was hesitant to buy them at first because they were still quite expensive. So I passed on it. A week later, when my friend and I went thrift shopping again, they were still on the rack. This time, it was on sale at Php80. I just felt it was destiny telling me to get them. So, I took them and paid for them! I think I got a good deal. Don’t you think?




Anyway, athleisure is a trend. And as they say, trends don’t last. As a men’s fashion blogger, trends excite me but I also know that not all trends will look good on me. An example is the jogger pants. I was never a fan of them. One style tip to remember is just because something looks good on someone, it doesn’t mean it will look good on you as well. But don’t be afraid to experiment. Fashion is trial and error. There will be bad days and good days. But once you figure out your personal style, for sure, the Fashion Police won’t be running after you. 



This is just another “buwis buhay” moment for the blog. The things bloggers and social media influencers do just to get a good shot are quite out of the ordinary. But as a blogger, I just want to give you the best to inspire you to think out of the box and to do something crazy but definitely worth it. 

Tell me what you think about this style post and let’s share ideas. Have a great day!
