It’s no secret that the athleisure “trend” is becoming a staple part of fashionable closets around the world. With everything from cotton baseball caps to harem pants and leggings, it’s hard to ignore the comfort level, functionality, and versatility. As we continue the shift toward healthier lifestyles that are active and full, we’ve also started a demand for a certain level of purpose from the clothes we choose to wear. So we’ve picked three of our absolute favorite athleisure brands with pieces that can go from morning yoga to afternoon meeting with some quick additions, and because we’re a New York-based company, we love supporting other New Yorkers; meaning all of the brands have local roots.
1. Live the Process: They’re not just a luxury activewear brand with beautiful, light pieces, but it’s also a resource for wellness and holistic health. Our favorite thing about the brand, however, is the light color palette and subtle patterns. The three pieces we picked could easily be incorporated in other outfits outside of the gym.
2. Outdoor Voices: This brand is for the “cool it-girl” (or guy!) at the gym and has a refreshingly simple way of approaching fitness apparel. Somewhere between normcore and contemporary, they have found the sweet-spot of the “not-so-basic” basics in athleisure. Our three favorites are incredibly versatile and great for layering.
3. Michi: They bring the edge to athleisure with everything from skin-tight jumpsuits and cut out mesh leggings, to multi-strap bras. Focused on luxurious high-end apparel that will empower women to perform at their athletic best, they offer fashion-forward pieces that are meant to be supportive and eye-catching. These three pieces we picked are a chic addition to any athletic closet and perhaps even the regular one.
After our afternoon workout, we’ll be the most stylish girls on the subway home.
