I’m not a really a trendy kinda gal, but athleisure is definitely one that has stuck with me! I love that with athleisure, I can be practical, comfortable, fun… and sometimes, also pretend to be clean ;). Here are some of my favorite, tried-and-true brands for working out, brunch, and really just my life in general (yes, I wear some of these to work!):
Lululemon: I’ve professed my love for lululemon to you guys before, and nothing’s changed. Whether or not I’m working out in them, I always feel free and supported in my favorite High Times tights. They also have so many great prints right now! I’m loving the strappy bra/leggings combo in the hazy days black/white color.
Outdoor Voices: While I may rock all-black 80% of the time, anyone who knew me before I turned 24 will tell you that I’m obsessed with color. Outdoor Voices always nails it with their color schemes and I especially love that they have softer hues than all other brands. Their signature crop top and leggings combo might look more street than studio, but I promise they both hold up very well through my runs! I’m also known to live in their cool down kit… so cozy and breathable.
ADAY: ADAY is one of my favorite brands ever and the only one of these that I actually wear to the office! They use light, technical fabrics that are traditionally seen in workout clothes and transform them into leisure/office staples. I will admit that I find myself wearing ADAY pieces more often when I’m not working out than when I am. My favorite pieces are the Hail Yes Trackpants in matte black and the Up in the Air jacket. Both are totally office appropriate, and are also my official airport uniform. The jacket is also the most perfect thing to throw on when you’re going straight from your crunch sesh to brunch. The trackpants work great for a yoga class (not hot yoga) but I probably wouldn’t recommend them for other workouts.
Yoga Smoga: Ok, this one is more active/yoga-wear than athleisure, but I have a lot of tights, and the Yoga Smoga ones are my favorite! While I love the lululemon High Times, the Yoga Smoga leggings are a little thicker and are easier to pass as real clothes. I mostly love them because they totally stay put and I never feel like I have to tug them up!
Adidas by Stella McCartney: Always the coolest colors and shapes, combined with the Adidas technology and quality that we all know and love. I can’t even pick one item to talk about here, I love this whole collection so much!
There are so many other great athleisure brands that I have my eye on, but I haven’t tried out yet. Let me know if you love any of these:
Good Hyouman and Spiritual Gangster: I love all the inspo and good vibes written all over their clothes! My favorite is the Pets are People Too sweater from Good Hyouman. My friends who love Spiritual Gangster wear their tees to yoga, and throw them on after class as well.
Koral: How cool are all their liquid-looking clothes??
