Activewear refers to garments or clothes that provide style along with comfort and function and are made up of sustainable materials. Clothes like parkas, hoodies, pants,, and crew neck fleece sweaters serve the purpose of first exercising and then very comfortably and stylishly transitioning to casual attire where the styles, fabrics, and cut of the clothes gel with people mingling in a casual setting. People who love to spend a lot of time outdoors leading an active life prefer to be casually dressed in activewear, which keeps them comfortable and functional as well as stylish. Activewear also includes accessories and footwear of many varieties.
Sportswear is clothes, shoes, and accessories that are specifically designed for sports purposes. It needs to have certain functions, thermal properties, comfort, sustainability, specific fabric weight, and many other properties to suit different sports. For swimming, the clothes may have different materials. Many clothes have water resistant qualities. Some have spandex to make them stretch with the body; others have thermal qualities for the purpose of keeping the body of the athlete warm in cold situations and cool in warm situations. Thus the flexibility, style, and material are not as varied as activewear clothes.
