Athleisure bottoms are leggings, workout pants and shorts, joggers, skorts, and any type of sporty or travel bottom made of technical and performance fabric. You are on Team Athleisure if you prefer them to jeans, and vice versa. You typically find these types of pants in athletic brands like Athleta, Lululemon, Zella, REI, Patagonia and the like. By jeans I mean any pants made of denim, including denim shorts.

Take into account what you wear in cold weather. You might be exclusively in athleisure bottoms now because of Summer heat, but back in jeans as temperatures cool.

I have four pairs of performance leggings from Zella and wear them for yoga and physical therapy. I don’t wear them as regular casual wear or as loungewear. I don’t have any other sort of athleisure bottom. I have several pairs of blue, red, patterned and white jeans and enjoy them enormously. I can wear them year round here in the Pacific North West because our Summers aren’t very hot. Jeans work well for my style and lifestyle, and I bat for Team Jeans.

Over to you. Do you bat for Team Athleisure or Team Jeans? Tell us why and no batting for both teams. My guess is that the results of this poll will be very close given the swing to Athleisure as a preferable way to dress through the global novel Coronavirus pandemic.
