Athleisure Pieces You Can Wear Anywhere

By Tanya Sharma

Perfect whether you're a hardcore athlete or more the leisurely sort, these clothes are as stylish and comfortable as they are sporty.

You've seen enough commercials, Instagram pictures and good ol' real life to know that wearing athletic clothes all the time is definitely a thing. Sometimes it looks totally chic and acceptable; at other times, it borders on sloppy. While athleisure attire may get a slightly bad rap for its hyper-casual stylings, it's truly the foundation for any solid wardrobe. What else would you wear to yoga, Starbucks, campus and the mall--all on the same day?

Pacific Exfoliating Cleanser Proves That What Your Skin Needs Is Mushroom Extract (Yes, Really)

Every bottle of Pacific Exfoliating Cleanser from True Pacific contains a patented mushroom extract that softens skin while it exfoliates away the grime of the day. Are you a bit put off by the mushroom thing? I don't blame you; fungi can be freaky! Thankfully, when you pump out the cleanser you aren't hit with a spongy, rotting smell. Instead the fresh, earthy scent invigorates your senses while you wash. Your skin will thank you for the TLC, especially if you remember to wash your makeup off every night before you hit the hay (a lofty goal, I know!).

Iron Fist Cycloburger Flats

So I went to Dead Right Horror Trivia last night and realized how underdressed I was -- half of the people were dressed to the nines as 90s horror characters, and the other half had these amazing prints splashed across their shirts. When I go back next month, I can do them one better by wearing these Cycloburger Flats from Angry, Young and Poor. They're 100% vegan, have a pointed toe, and feature a crinkle-cut french fry print on the inside lining.

Sleep easy with Morgan Lane's Lanie Flowers Eye Mask. The silk mask will help you settle into a deep and peaceful sleep by shutting out the day and any extra blinking lights that seep in through the blinds or plague your phone at all hours.

They hadn't, what they had done was simply crop the image down to scale for their magazine, however, it was Dunham's reaction to a photo that she thought was edited that was admirable.

So how does plus size fast fashion stack up against against its pricier counterparts?
