Athleta showcases, in my opinion, one of the most colorful, pattern-rich collections to-date for summer 2015, which feels perfectly in line with the propensity for outdoor activities in the warmer months. The hypersonic print is a fresh take on tie-dye, while complimentary tops and sports bras come in a sophisticated neon palette. In recent seasons, the brand has broken away from built-in bras, which has enabled them to add wonderful detailing and ventilation options to bras and tops, visible mainly in the back, and functional for a variety of movements that will get your pulse going.
Swim is a strong category for the season, with super cute and functional bikinis, tankinis, and one-pieces alongside high performance pieces like swim capris and rashguards. And let’s not forget about those coverups! Athleta always has great options that transition perfectly into other occasions, with some favorites for the summer including the mesh pullover, kimmsa tunic, brilliance vest, and aspire ankle pant.
