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

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.

We also adore the new Weekend Wrap Skort ($62, shop here), which is perfect for the girl on the go who wants to look cute yet feel comfortable all day long.

Solely Fit

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.

Also part of the Dermis Collection, the Aminatu Biker Shorts ($60, shop here) bring a new feel to a classic shape in a beautiful ribbed oatmeal fabric with nude mesh along the sides.

Outdoor Voices

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.

Looking for activewear? Stepping out of your comfort zone and trying out new brands can lead you to bold new styles!
