Kendall Jenner mastered athleisure-wear while leaving the gym in Los Angeles yesterday.
Athleisure is all about versatility, and Jenner’s long sleeve made for the perfect transitional piece to go from working up a sweat stylishly at the gym, to a quick coffee run. Wherever the day might have taken the 818 Tequila owner, she was certainly dressed to take on anything.
On bottom, “The Kardashians” star wore black high-waisted Alo leggings with a sleek finish. Modern leggings first came about in the 1950s, though the style really took off in the 1960s with the invention of Lycra. Leggings became a full-blown trend in the ‘70s, thanks to disco pants, and maintained popularity in the ‘80s, thanks to the aerobics craze.
After a cool down in the ‘90s, leggings came back in style in the 2000s and have remained a core part of women’s wardrobes for a variety of athletic and non athletic purposes. The versatile style caters towards a shift in comfort wear thanks to the athelisure movement that gained popularity during the global pandemic.
Jenner finished off her look with a pair of thin black Y2K-inspired sunglasses, chunky white socks, and a trusty big gym bag in black slung over her shoulder.
As far as footwear went, Jenner took the road less traveled, lacing up bulky black sneakers with a cushy, athletic build, and elevated rubber soles. Fitted with shiny accents, the shoes are a stand-out choice, especially when stylistically paired alongside thick white socks.
Pop on a pair of chunky black sneakers for a sporty finish.
