When athleisure first showed up on the fashion scene it was all about looking stylish and being comfortable at the same time. The style was invented for women who want to make a fashion statement at the gym and wear their gym clothes around without getting the weird looks. Back in the days, athleisure would allow you to go for a quick lunch or have a drink with your friends while being super comfy. Afterward, you can hit the gym and workout in the same outfit. The athleisure style brought the chic and sporty coordinates, detailed leggings, cute sports bras and bralettes all looking great both at the gym and outside of it.

In 2017 the style took over the wardrobe of the biggest fashion influencers. Celebrities, models, bloggers, they all fell in love with the athleisure and gave it a bolder upgrade. We can’t say that the upgraded athleisure is comfy enough for the gym, but that’s not event the point anymore. The chic sporty pieces became an everyday staple to many of our favorite It girls regardless the fact that is not as comfortable as it used to be. The athleisure pieces are now paired with high heels, lace, satin, and a lot of accessories that you wouldn’t normally wear at the gym.

Take a look at the fashion icons who mastered the athleisure style and learn how to rock the hottest and the boldest trend of the year.

Sofia Richie

The model made a small but effective upgrade to her athleisure look by adding the tiny Louis Vuitton fanny pack. The fanny packs are another major trend this year and Sofia’s athleisure outfit was definitely all about the latest trends.

Bella Hadid

Bella is fierce when it comes to experimenting. While most people will frown upon high heels and track pants she went even further and completed the sporty look with bold over the knee heeled boots.

Chiara Ferragni

The Blond Salad rewrote the rules of athleisure with her beige Gucci satin coordinate. She made a daring move by leaving the top unbuttoned without anything underneath.

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian fiercely paired the elegant sheer lace bodysuit with a piece you would definitely wear at the gym. The eye-catching Adidas track pants were spiced up with fishnet stockings and black high heeled sandals. In your head, lace and sporty track pants may sound bad, but we have to agree that Kim rocked this look.

Gigi Hadid

Considering the fact that Gigi is a Tommy girl, she is the queen of the athleisure. She paired the sporty sweater and jacket with edgy velcro boots and made an unbeatable athleisure fashion statement.

We have a feeling that the bad girl Riri rocked the athleisure style way before other celebrities were aware of it. No wonder why she landed herself a deal with Puma and has a major success with her collections. Her latest clothing collection for Puma was all about the athleisure. She wears tracksuit pants and other sporty pieces with high heels and a lot of accessories on regular basis. This black and white all-Puma outfit from her collection is one of the boldest athleisure outfits we have seen so far.

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez proved that you can rock a tracksuit with strappy evening heeled sandals. The best thing is that you can wear the same sandals with your evening dress and everyday wear. The young star’s Vetements tracksuit is definitely not only for the gym.
