First of all, what is "bathleisure"? The term seems to spring from a British Vogue edition that featured the ever-iconic Rihanna sporting a terry cloth towel around her head on the cover. Meanwhile, the rest of her outfit was as high-fashion as could be. Instagram picked it up quickly, and the recipe seems to go something like this:
