Athleisure Wear for Women Over 50

With spring around the corner, the concept of shedding layers and focusing on fitness and health has us thinking we need to get better about keeping our step counts high and prepare for summer staples like swimwear.

Enter Athleisure Wear. Truly an American-born wardrobe staple, we can take ‘comfy’ to a whole other level. Designers caught on to this and created beautiful, luxurious pieces for days when wearing “grown up clothes” is just not going to happen.

See, the point of Athleisure isn’t the workout. It’s about feeling feminine, strong, and chic. More often than not, the designers have zero intention of you actually working out in said workout clothes. Athleisure wear is a guilt-free zone that says, “Be fabulous, but be comfortable, and if you should decide to go workout, then good for you!”

While the trend started with moms and celebrities looking for casual elegance running between life moments, workout wear designers took note, and elevated what was left of boring-but-functional styles.

No matter your favorite workout – a walk in the park, a few laps in the pool, or balancing your chakras, there’s a lot of options in athleisure wear for the woman over 50.

We’ve created a few looks that will take you from the gym to brunch and back again.
