Just as the world has embraced mashups such as mixing a famous couple's names like Brangelina, Bennifer, or Kimye, there are other mixtures in the millennial universe that aren't related to love, but simply try to name and define this unique reality we are living in. We are a generation that focuses on personal experiences and everyday more words are included in the dictionary to capture this fluctuating world we live in.
This is how the term athleisure entered our collective dictionary, a fusion of athletic and leisure. These apparently unrelated terms have joined forces to describe a fashion and lifestyle trend that is now defying our way of life.
Thanks to this fashion hybrid, now we can wear yoga pants to work or to go to a bar and still look trendy. Perhaps Mark Parker's (Nike CEO) statement of leggings being the new denim has come to reality and has become the most relevant fashion trend of our generation.
Here's the question:hHow to achieve that perfect balance like Rihanna, or the extreme look of Hadid and Jenner, without making a fool of ourselves?
Under the influence of Alexander Wang and Riccardo Tisci, and inspired by the style of celebrities like Beyoncé or Iggy Azalea, these fashion trends have emerged. What's the new style? No one can know, but in the meantime, this trend is still out there so we can take the most of it.
