What’s Athflow? It’s 2021’s Hottest Fashion Trend And We’re Obsessed

athflow loungewear

If you’ve never heard of athflow, you’re in for a treat. Athflow is the fashion trend we’ll be seeing all 2021, largely inspired by the lifestyle changes brought about by this year. Chances are you’re probably already rocking athflow!

So what’s athflow? When athleisure meets elegance – that’s athflow. Flowy trousers, casual jumpsuits and oversized outfits will replace athletic clothes as the new go-to loungewear. Athflow is professional enough for the ‘office’, stretchy enough for the yoga mat and comfy enough for the sofa.

Think elevated loungewear — clothes you want to live in that are IG-worthy and work appropriate. Checks all our boxes! We all remember when athleisure was the wave right? No more oddly-fitting workout clothes that were restrictive and boring. Athletic wear became fashionable and functional, carefully designed to flatter the body and optimize comfort and movement. It was also made to be much more versatile and appropriate to wear outside of the gym. Athflow takes elements of athleisure’s comfort and style and brings it to the next level with sophisticated silhouettes and an added “lounge” factor. To get a better idea, check out some of our favorite athflow looks!


Inspiration and Key Pieces

Key Pieces: Flowy pants, loose-fit trousers, oversized knits, smart layering, loose-fit blouses

The athflow trend includes pieces that are comfortable to sit and lounge in all day whether you’re doing back-to-back zoom meetings or reading a book in bed. A neutral color palette consisting of black, cream, and beige create an air of professionalism to the overall look.

Key Pieces: Slouch coats, longline cardigans, matching co-ords, loafers or sneakers

The athflow style (specifically oversized fits) is extremely popular in Korea with some European influences reflected in the smart tailoring incorporated into the styling. During the colder months, cocoon coats and slouchy cardigans are ideal. Ribbed pieces make great co-ord lounge sets but are elevated with polished loafers, mules, or boots. Don’t be scared to incorporate color as well! Popular brands that carry the athflow style are Skims, Aritzia, Mango, Other Stories, and Free People.
