What? Athflow trend for 2021. Athflow it’s a mix of Athleisure wear (athletic clothes) and “flowy” loungewear. Ath-flow. Basically a hard-to-say, fancy new word to encompass the work-from-home fashion lifestyle you’ve already been living.
As I continue balancing working from home and going into the office, this trend really speaks to me. Also as I continue to do all my DIY projects my clothes have to be comfortable. Check out my recent DIY projects here.

What is this Athflow?
This is where athleisure meets a more fashion conscious look. Like, flowy pants, casual jumpsuits and over sized outfits. According to a Pinterest trend report comfortable clothing is still expected to have a leading role in our wardrobes this year, as part of a transitional aesthetic dubbed “athflow.” This is the Athflow trend for 2021.
As many of us have spent the last year working from home, we have been accustomed to being comfortable. As we transition into going back to normal life later this year (hopefully) Pinterest defines Athflow as “professional enough for the ‘office,’ stretchy enough for the yoga mat, and comfy enough for the couch.”
What are some key looks for the Athflow Trend
- Neutral colors, with a welcome of some fun pop colors
- Soft drapey wovens & knits- such as linen, tencels, washed cottons & sweater knits
- Oversized silhouettes
- Mix and matchable pieces that can be used for a variety of combinations
Retailers are definitely showcasing a new athflow trend as they are increasingly offering more fashion loungewear attire and more relaxed versions of workwear pieces. So we see Wide-leg trousers made of soft fabrics. Hybrid Joggers that are made of soft drapey fabrics that can be worn as comfy pants. Sweatshirts that have more detail and fashion elements.
