Athleisure is your answer to chic-casual when you want to give the impression that... well... you just woke up this fabulous, and dressing up is no effort at all. Well, as convincing as the nonchalance is meant to be, the trend is one that many of our B-Town A-listers have not only sported in the past, but with summers coming and the ever-present paparazzi to deal with, our Bollywood fashionistas have been opting for an athleisure ever so often.

Deepika Padukone gave her white shirt from Zara a sporty twist by teaming it with athleisure-style trousers. Not only did the red and blue stripes on the side panels of the wide-legged Zara trousers add a spunky touch, one closer look also revealed a similar striped pattern on the hem of the sleeves. We think it looked cool!

Malaika Arora made a classy statement in athleisure-style grey pants that she paired with a black sweater worn over a crisp white shirt with an embellished collar.

Deepika Padukone's comfy look is on point. Not just keeping it casual but also cool, the actor was spotted wearing a pair of Nike trousers with a blue top. It was the shiny bomber jacket that grabbed all the attention. The sleeveless top was knotted at the waist and she accessorised it with a pair of Nike sneakers. What we love about the athleisure outfit is the interplay of different shades of blue. Her look may allure you into wearing one even on a weekday!

Neha Dhupia has a glamorous take on athleisure wear. The actor-chat show host combined her casual red and white striped black pants with a glitzy number from 431-88 by Shweta Kapur. While we like the idea of using athleisure outfits to up the style quotient, the execution was disappointing.

Looking for an easy fashion fix for an afternoon brunch? Sophie Choudry's outfit will definitely inspire you. The actor looked lovely in red athleisure pants and a black top from Topshop that featured a mesh detailing on the sleeves. We like how the actor amped up the look with the mesh top giving a sultry vibe to it.

Malaika Arora was spotted at the airport in a Narendra Kumar piece from the designer’s latest collection, which is all about “Athleisure meets tailoring meets couture”, and looked very casual-chic. We like the funky twist she brought to the outfit.
