    Not only has ‘athleisure’ infiltrated the fashion lexicon, you can now find it in the Merriam-Webster dictionary (Countdown fans and scrabble aficionados take note). Yep, performance-wear as everyday-wear is officially de rigueur.

    The poster-girls for the trend are the street style doyennes – Veronika Heilbrunner, Karlie Kloss, Hailey Baldwin et al. – and they provide endless inspiration on how to style out sportswear, whether you’re sipping a post-spin class protein shake, or meeting friends for a glass of Rosé the sun.
