Amid the unprecedented circumstances, thanks to Covid-19,fitness at home has become the ‘new normal’. Experts have been emphasizing heavily to utilize this time to reap the maximum benefits of indoor fitness to have a hale and hearty lifestyle. With a sharp rise in home gym equipment, needless to say, there has been equally a sharp rise in fitness attire ranging from baggy pants to yoga pants and crop tops.
Starting from Kareena Kapoor Khan to Anushka Sharma, from Deepika Padukone to Esha Gupta – actors have been spotted chilling in their leggings, yoga pants and crop tops. Internationally, the likes of Hailey Bieber, Kim Kardashian West and Kylie Jenner have been spotted flaunting active wear separates impeccably.
Covid-19 has completely upped the sartorial game on Instagram with no events or red carpet appearances happening. So we feel it is alright to assume that sweatsuit has popped up to be the new pantsuit, all credits to this endless period of lockdown and uncertainty.
Designer Shehla Khan adds “Since we are spending more time at home, everyone is focusing on their physical selves, and as opposed to dressing up to go out we are dressing up to stay at home for a lounge, to practice yoga or exercise. Hence comfort is the new focus, where style is concerned and that’s where workout gear and athleisure or track pants and sweatshirts come in.”
Designer Kunal Anil Tanna says, “With the ever evolving fashion preferences, it’s no longer about vanity over comfort. A majority of people are constantly multitasking, which makes comfort a priority; and what’s more comfortable than athleisure separates and sweatsuits!”
