Rethink casual this season!
You may want to put away your jeans and pack up your ballet flats because, according to Business Insider, athleisure is the new casual, and it seems the sporty trend is gaining momentum fast. We saw athleisure looks at the Spring 2017 fashion shows from designers like Alexander Wang and Vetements (natch), but luxury labels including Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and even ultra-feminine Dior also send out models in sportier gear.

And the runways aren’t the only place to spot this trend; from street style stars like Patricia Manfield and Julia Sarr-Jamois to fashion darlings Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner to celebrities like Zendaya and Rihanna, athleisure is everywhere! This season it goes beyond joggers and sneakers to include flirty separates, bodycon dresses, and lots of color.

Want to try the trend? Pair a pencil skirt with a cropped hoodie and sneakers, like Zendaya; rock a track suit in a slimmer, more feminine silhouette like Patricia Manfield; or simply switch out your skinny jeans for a pair of joggers.
