2020 has left tangible signs in the life of each of us and habits that will also accompany us throughout 2021. Some of these changes have redefined our choices also in terms of clothing. We got used to spending much more time at home than usual, we use new communication tools and we discovered the power and effectiveness of video calls.
We have learned to work from home and redevelop the rooms of our apartments. We work in smart working but we also find time to keep fit by unrolling the mat in some corner of the house. There is a word that has been coined to represent this new lifestyle and clothing style: it is athflow.
Athflow: what does it mean?
It is a word that comes from the fusion of athleisure (the union of sportswear and free time with a more formal style) and flow: the athflow represents the will to wear comfortable clothing without sacrificing style.
Staying at home made us review our priorities and if it is true that fashion follows the flow of what happens in everyday society, the athflow is the right answer to this new way of life. It is the revenge of the home style, because staying at home does not necessarily have to represent a limit and does not mean having to wear pajamas 24 hours a day.
Athflow, the new fashion trend of 2021
Athflow is a tendency to favor clothing from flared and wide shapes, and come on mainly neutral colors. The fabrics are comfortable, in oversized and unisex models.
It’s a kind of style evolution cozy is comfy. It is clothing made up of rather sporty garments without sacrificing a touch casual.
