You’re not alone if you’re surprised by the idea of activewear trending in the fashion world. But long gone are the days of a tatty pair of leggings and a stained t-shirt being the go-to ensemble for heading to the gym.
2020 was the year for all things “comfort”. The pandemic, lockdowns, working from home…all meant that athleisure was the style of choice and 2021 is continuing to propel this trend forward.
So what can we expect to see moving into the spring and summer of 2021? Activewear is already known for being both flattering, comfortable and practical. But now the fashion houses and designers are heeding our calls for more high-end, couture athleisure and we are now seeing an influx of more luxury leggings, branded bralettes and trendy tracksuits.
This sartorial movement means that activewear is no longer just for working out and chilling out - but you'll be seeing these trendy togs on the high street and catwalks too.
In 2021 we are going to see women's activewear in neutrals, pastels, and sweet floral prints, along with the rebirth of 90's hues and the 80's active one-piece, matching sets, clean silhouettes, sustainable materials, asymmetrical designs, and an interesting injection of unexpected colours.
So here's what we have in-store for the coming seasons and the trends that will be at the forefront of every fashionista's wardrobe in spring 2021.
The 80’s wasn’t a landmark year for fashion, but they did get something right – the leotard look is back and bolder than ever. Onesies, unitards, rompers, and jumpsuits have made a comeback, but with a fresh and modern twist.
