Feeling confident, supported, comfortable, and stylish is essential to a solid work out free of distractions, no matter if you’re into CrossFit or restorative yoga. I really have Athleta to thank for keeping me motivated while looking and feeling great in my work outs, which have taken quite an upswing in frequency in the past few months. Although yoga is my exercise of choice, I do like switching it up, which means versatility in dressing the part for the occasional swim, cycle, dance, or short burst running or circuit work out is of the essence.
For summer 2016, the brand once again delivers a perfect lineup of pieces designated for each activity, with style at the forefront, yet by no means trumping comfort and functionality. Expect a solid array of gorgeous yoga-oriented tops, ultra hip cropped swim tanks, perforated work out pants found in the brand’s signature breathable, “unstinkable” fabrics, and ever-fashionable, capsule collection of Derek Lam 10C Athleta. Pieces considered to represent athleisure are ever-present, meaning you will have less outfit changes in your day, making getting a quick sweat session in way more feasible, plus opening up the opportunity for more “out and about” occasions to wear your favorite Athleta garments!
