I recently got my first athletic loungewear from a Swedish brand, Stronger Label (you can purchase items with a 20% discount “Pitchy20”, expires on the 27th). I got hyped about the quality and the price point (some items are as low as 35 dollars, try them out with the discount code) of the products and decided to write a blogpost about it.
A few years ago, I wouldn’t have thought the fashion scene would be replete with athletic or sports wear, styling it as real clothing. Known as athleisure, joggers, leggings and loungewear, were once items to chill in. Fast-forward to 2020/2021, athletic wears are now regular fashion and must-haves.
But before athletic wears became a contemporary fashion trend, the legendary Princess Diana was pictured severally, outdoors, wearing biker shorts with a university mesh in the ’90s. A woman ahead of her times! Although biker shorts are also athletic wears, I dislike them as a trend. But there are other varieties or substitutes in athletic wears that I love. For example, I love loungewear’s and sweatsuit’s, not only for their comfort and price point, but for their dual function.
STYLING ATHLEISURE PIECES
The pandemic made it easy for people to fall in love with athletic pieces, like loungewear and sweatsuits. For instance, most people working full-time remote jobs are adopting athleisure pieces as their default home looks. It’s easy to put on and comfortable to wear for long periods. But we also get to see it as favourite street wears, and I have worn mine for outdoor activities a couple of times.
The loungewear I purchased from the Stronger label is comfortable, simple, and functional. I could wear it for my morning runs and early morning meetings and to shop for groceries.
I was blown away by the shipping time. My item arrived within 3-work days after placing it. I loved the design and packaging for the items, and overall, I enjoyed my shopping experience.
