Fashion is every where you go.
Thankfully, there are plenty of brands notoriously known for their activewear such as Nike (leading brand along with Under Amour and Adidas), but there are clothing brands who are slowly introducing an activewear line to their collection.
With the booming of the fitness and health industry, thanks to social media in recent years, fashion has another opportunity to sport itself – looking stylish while burning calories. Winning. Besides looking colorful and put together, brands have developed activewear for functionality as well as having irresistible silhouettes to their target customers.
Urban Outfitter’s newly activewear line has a mixture from tops to bottoms for both men and women. The collection also contains small details such as socks within their collection. One featured item is a crisscross women’s sports bra that performs free-flow fabric, allows you to still feel comfortable (and stylish) during a yoga class or during a light work out.
Another brand that is making its way into the fit apparel spectrum is Athleta, a brand branched from Gap. While it has both the appeal for lounge wear and breaking a sweat in the gym, the brand has definitely created a variety of attractive workout ensemble. Athleta’s Chi Mesh Tank is compiled from ultra light-weight fabric for working out purposes, but remains stylish with a racerback style and mesh fabric for the top-half to create a sleek and sexy appeal.
Although the majority of activewear is predominantly worn for sweaty sessions, there are selective pieces that can be worn from casual wear to the gym. UO’s Anthropolgie, another brand under the UOI , have versatile activewear that can be mixed in with your casual wardrobe. For example, leggings have always been a go-to alternative due to it’s comfort and versatility. Similar to leggings, Anthropolgie carries a floral print crop pant made from essential fabrics like polyester, spandex and nylon. This crop pant can be worn during the day and transitioned into your afternoon workout.
Brands have definitely branched out and explored new ways to make fashionable clothing in our daily activities, even for our fitness activities. Whoever said you cannot look stylish while breaking a sweat, have yet explored the fashion activewear collections.
