The success of athleisure can also be seen in the multitude of designers and celebrities who have produced trendy, athletic clothing lines. Retailers like Lululemon, Nike, Athleta and Adidas specialize in athleisure. More exclusive lines such as, Ivy Park (co-founded by Beyonce), Fabletics by Kate Hudson and CALIA by Carrie Underwood were created as a result of athleisure’s rising popularity. Because athleisure started roughly around 2012, it is drifting further away from an impermanent trend to a lasting lifestyle.
Growing up with a basketball-fanatic for a mother has taught me to both love and hate the NCAA March Madness. I hate that the TV is constantly controlled by basketball games for over a week, but I love the friendly competition of our family bracket pool. Personally, I know little about the NCAA teams and who has the best odds of continuing on in the March Madness. When it comes time for me to fill out I bracket, I have two main strategies (1) choose the highest seed teams and have the #1 teams from each region meet at the Final Four or (2) choose the team with the cutest uniforms.
This year, I clearly chose the latter! Who wouldn’t want to choose a winning team based on their attention to school colors and uniform design?! As tonight, I am currently winning my family’s bracket pool!! I guess looking good on the court might make the players that much better!
After much consideration of color, style and versatility, I decided on Kentucky, UNC, UGA and Duke for the Final Four of basketball fashion. Kentucky and Duke both have rich royal blue uniforms, which truly stand out on the court. As a future Georgia bulldog, I had to show allegiance to the uniforms I will be seeing on campus for the next four years. I do love red and black together! But, of course, UNC Chapel Hill never seems to disappoint. Their carolina blue uniforms with the unique argyle design down the sides make them the clear winner.
Who knows? Maybe the fashionista will win it all!
It’s that time of year again: baseball season! One of America’s iconic pastimes, baseball games are a national favorite. From delicious hotdogs with a side cracker jacks, to singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” baseball games are quintessential to American culture. Not to mention, a cute, simple outfit and your favorite team’s baseball cap remains such a classic ensemble. I hope you get a chance to cheer on your team this summer. Go Nats!
