Athflow Just Might Be The Comfiest Fashion Trend Yet

We think we’ve just found our style soulmate.

First, let's brush up on our sartorial terms, shall we? Loungewear is the soft, comfy clothes you curl up in to watch reruns of The Office. Athleisure duds are also comfortable, but they're more conducive to jaunts outside the home. Athleisure wear is sportier and often made of a stretchy performance fabric (like nylon, spandex, or rayon). And athflow? This style is also comfy, but it's one step closer to looking fully pulled together. It's athleisure that's been classed up a bit.

You may have already been living the athflow life. It's the outfit you'd wear for a virtual meeting, when you need to look professional but are determined to remain comfortable. We're talking boyfriend blazers, wraparound cardigans, fancy leggings, and oversized jumpsuits. A sartorial response to how intertwined our professional and personal spaces have become, it can go from a conference call to the couch without skipping a beat. For your wearing pleasure, we've compiled some of our favorite athflow selects.

High-Waisted Metallic Jogger Pants


Add some luxe to your loungewear with these stretch-metallic joggers that have a drawstring waist, always-welcome pockets, and cropped silhouette. The ultra-plush fabric has a built-in, shimmery sheen for a glamorous look you can dress up or down.

Knit Wrap Top


Wearing a bathrobe to work will probably raise some eyebrows (you've considered it, don't lie), but this version is socially presentable while maintaining big hygge energy.

Wool Oversized Blazer


Once seen only in office settings, blazers have now become a versatile piece with menswear-inspired fits and elongated silhouettes. Complete with a roomy fit, classic pinstripe design, and hard-to-wrinkle recycled Italian wool, this Everlane find is sharp without being suffocating.

Harry Potter Varsity Boyfriend Cardigan


When Athflow meets preppy, you get this academic-style boyfriend cardigan. For all you Potterheads out there, Torrid offers Harry Potter-themed cardigans—complete with an embroidered patch and the house colors—for each of the four houses so you can rock your wizard-school spirit with pride. (Muggles are welcome to wear them, too.)

Plaid Button Leggings


Stretchy leggings become much more work-appropriate with a chic print. This pair could pass for a pair of work pants, thanks to its button-front and tartan design, but unlike most work pants, it's comfy and elasticized.
