As the athleisure trend of leggings and matching workout sets continues, well-known brands like Nike and Lululemon seem to be cashing in. But here are a few lesser-known activewear brands we think you should check out.
The Girlfriend Collective is an inclusive, diverse, woman-focused brand that ethically produces everything from leggings to bras and skorts in sizes XXS through 6XL! And get this: The best-selling Compressive High-Rise Leggings ($78, shop here) are made from 25 recycled plastic water bottles! The “squat-proof” leggings come in numerous colors, including black, white, blue, green, plum, rust, and an ever-changing assortment of seasonal shades.
Solely Fit specializes in sustainable, luxury sportswear with unique styles and elevated silhouettes. A piece from the Dermis Collection, the sexy yet supportive Ala Bra ($52, shop here) comes in a range of earthy tones from mossy green to beautiful brown. Speaking of the Earth, you don’t need to feel any guilt when purchasing since this bra is made from 82% recycled polyester.
Outdoor Voices offers bright and bold tanks, skorts, dresses, windbreakers, leggings, and much more for men and women. The brand is on a mission to get the world moving in appropriate activewear. The One-Shoulder Dress with Liner ($100, shop here), which comes in two sweet colors – sky and lavender – is one of the company’s best sellers (followed by the Classic Exercise Dress). The one-shoulder dress has been meticulously designed with features such as built-in shorts and cell phone-sized pockets.
We also love the Court 4.5″ Skort ($58, shop here), which also has shorts to keep you covered and a convenient pocket. In shades like black, white, and navy, it will quickly become one of your most worn items. Before you know it, you’ll be #DoingThings in Outdoor Voices head to toe.
