Insight of the Week: Athleisure Fashion
Women's sneakers sales increased 37% last year, while high heels fell 11% during the same period. As consumer taste move away from conformed and into comfortable, retail brands are exploring athleisure options with ruffles, bold patterns, and other fashion-forward flairs to entice users. Are leggings still just for Saturday morning zumba? Or can you wear them to brunch afterwards, and again later that evening to a show? We asked our audience using our first-party survey tool to find out.
