From Malaika Arora To Jacqueline Fernandez, Let These Bollywood Stars Show You How To Ace The Summer Athleisure Trend

By  | 

If you are even remotely interested in what’s happening in the fashion world (why else would you be here), you must have appeared in most, if not all, of the shows of the FDCI X Lakme Fashion Week that just wrapped up a couple days ago. Although  it was all about floral motifs, breezy styles and vibrant prints because obviously it was for the spring/summer season, the one refreshing trend that emerged was summer athleisure. That’s your activewear with summery patterns and aesthetics. If you are wondering why athleisure, which has been around for quite some time now, was a big hit at the fashion week, the pandemic probably had a lot to do with it. This season, you will see athleisure in Indian wear (think Payal Singhal’s latest collection), workwear (workleisure is a category now, yes) and parties and get-togethers. Bollywood style setter Malaika Arora already wore a summer athleisure look to a party last night and proved that this isn’t just a fluke. 

She visited her sister Amrita Arora’s house for a little star-studded celebration and chose chic sporty separates as her OOTN. She wore a red satin bomber jacket and shorts set by Gucci which had white stripes and the cutest cherries motifs that reminded us of the summer season. She styled the look with holographic heels and a silver sling bag to make it the ultimate party outfit. This cutesy activewear look is a welcome change from the glamorous outfits we have seen celebs walking in for these house parties. She looks comfortable and super stylish and is inspiring us to stock up on athleisure this season too. 


If you thought athleisure is just about oversized sweatshirts and then we’d like to tell you that this fashion category has so much more to offer. It has transitioned to summer staples with cropped jackets, shorts, lightweight bombers and baggy pants that are apt for your summer wardrobe. Plus, they don’t come in  a boring and basic colour palette like solid greys and blacks. The summer athleisure is all about fun colours, eccentric patterns and floral prints. Brands like Myriad Activewear have some really cool and trendy summer pieces that we are eyeing on. If you are not sure how to do the looks right, let us show you how you can pull off athleisure even on a hot sunny day. Here are five breezy and summery activewear looks that we spotted on this season’s ramp and celebs’ closets which are proof that athleisure could be your summer staple too.

Summer brides, listen up. When you venture out to the stores to look for your dream lehenga, take a glance at the athleisure section too. Payal Singhal just dropped an athleisure Indian wear line and this will become a rage in no time.

Masaba just introduced trackees, which are summer tracksuits in a butter-soft crepe and prints that would take you back to a nostalgic summer afternoon. It looks so comfy that I could wear it all day, take a nap and even groove in it like Deepika here.

If you’re looking to steal any or some of these looks, KOOVS has just launched a new collection and it’s got some pretty cool athlesiure options. Check them out here.
