Activewear You Wear Everywhere
Athleisure is a growing trend in fashion where clothing designed for workouts can be worn in other settings such as work, running errands, or social occasions. Investing in pieces that mix function with fashion is something more and more people are doing. For example, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are constantly being photographed rockin’ their activewear. However, athleisure is not just for supermodels. Everyone should invest in activewear pieces that they can use for their daily grind.
People often forget that they do NOT have to compromise fashion in order to get in a good workout. These City Sweat Joggers ($108) by lululemon are perfect for lifting and light cardio—but when paired with a leather jacket and Vans you have a date night outfit! The best thing about these is the sweat-wicking Tech Terry fabric that will keep you cool and not so smelly has you transition from a workout to your everyday life.
If you are a yogi, then you will love the Free People activewear line. Free People is no stranger to fashion, so this one piece jumpsuit ($98) is pure genius! One pieces are very popular for this summer/fall season. Their fabrics are made with the “Be Free Blend” which is an Italian-sourced tech fabric that provides two-way stretch, UV protection, and great breathability. This basically means that whether you’re curvy, athletic, or petite this bodysuit will fit and it will keep you cool.
I am obsessed with this sleeveless hoodie by lululemon ($98). Often times you see a guy at the gym showing off his biceps in an faded old cut-off t-shirt. This hoodie has taken that idea and sophisticated it. So you want to impress the ladies with your bod and fashion? Then invest in this hoodie.
Yoga pants are the essence of athleisure. Having a great pair of yoga leggings is essential to any girl’s wardrobe. You may ask yourself, “Is it really ok to wear yoga leggings all day long?” The answer is YES. As long as you invest in a quality pair, like these Lucy High Waisted Leggings ($108), it is acceptable. I say this because, if you have quality fabric then the pants won’t be see through, they won’t show off a muffin top, and they will hide unwanted cellulite. Overall, yoga leggings are a girls best friend.
