Microtrend: The Pants That Prove Athleisure's Staying Power

Though it appears a considerable part of the millennial population is already embracing the athleisure trend, if you can’t quite envision yourself transforming a pair of Lululemon yoga leggings into a wardrobe staple, perhaps the subject of today’s microtrend will serve as the ideal substitute: side-stripe pants! Seen in sporty variations on bloggers like Alexandra Spencer of 4th and Bleeker and in more tailored trouser iterations on tastemakers like Elin Kling, these fresh pants are truly a must-have piece for all style types.
