Athluxury is the answer to our holiday party wardrobe prayers

In our seemingly endless search for the perfect holiday party attire, there's one trend, in particular, we're looking to this year: athluxury. Athleisure's elevated, more elegant older sister, it's exactly what we're looking for to wear to the slew of parties we have coming up, because, frankly, we're pretty over head-to-toe sequins. (Can you blame us?)

What exactly is athluxury? It's athletic-inspired clothing that we'd never actually wear to the gym, but that can take us from the office to the party while still offering comfort. It exudes a cool, effortless vibe, but doesn't make it look like we just rolled out of a yoga class. And it's also a surefire way to make sure we're never too casual or too overdressed for an event.

Athluxury is about the details over functionality. It's incorporating utility buckles onto luxe trousers and shirt dresses or elevating a pair of joggers with a quilted, metallic material. It's football jersey-inspired dresses and loose-fitting frocks with athletic details like zippers and drawstrings.

While Vogue first proclaimed the trend would be taking over the year 2017, fast-forward to 2018, and it's alive and well. If there's anything we can take away from Louis Vuitton's Fall/Winter 2018 collection and Versace's Resort 2019, it's that athluxury is not going anywhere, anytime soon.

Below, we rounded up all of the athluxury musts that we plan to live in this holiday season.

Delevingne shared why they chose now

Last week, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson officially confirmed the rumor that they're dating, with Delevingne posting an Instagram video of the two of them kissing. Now, in a new interview, she revealed why they confirmed the rumors. Basically, it was in celebration of Pride.

In the interview with E! News at the TrevorLIVE Gala, Delevingne was asked why the pair chose this moment to take their relationship public, and she answered: "Because it is Pride, it's been 50 years since Stonewall happened, and I don't know... It's been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?"

Why not, indeed? Delevingne also said that the kissing video was "just a little something," which makes sense. After all, the couple were recently spotted lugging around a kinky sex bench, so some simple kissing must feel pretty elementary.

At the Gala, Delevingne shouted out Benson during her speech too, though not by name. "I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are," she said. "She's one of the people who help me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought." I'm swooning.

"I don't regret it at all. I mean I'm a man, and as a man, you do real things."

In 2017, Atlanta-based artist iLoveMakonnen (or just Makonnen) had already experienced exhilarating career highs and disappointing lows. Drake had hopped on a remix of his viral hit "Tuesday," and then signed him to his OVO Sound label in 2014. Hits like "I Don't Sell Molly No More" and "Look at Wrist" on his first album, I Love Makonnen, put him on track to be the next best thing in rap. Makonnen was part of a class of rappers and producers who were expanding the trap genre to broader audiences. But problems with OVO led to a delay in a follow-up album, and so he parted ways with the label and, later, announced a short-lived retirement from music. Then in January 2017, Makonnen tweeted that he was gay.
