While we slow down and enjoy summer, it seems like the perfect time for embracing the late setting sun and warm early mornings with some much needed exercise.
Recently, while doing the former (the whole doing nothing on a beach enjoyment), I came across a new activewear store called Bandier — filled with brands I’d never seen before, styles I couldn’t believe weren’t already in my growing spandex-sponsored repertoire. I wanted everything, and it actually made me want to exercise more! Or find ways to integrate these pieces into my everyday wardrobe…
It had us thinking about all of the girls you see in New York in what would seem to be workout gear, but could just be a cool outfit — like the downtown girl who works in a leather jacket with yoga pants, or the girl who makes you regret discarding the various bike short styles from the nineties… And did you know that jean sales fell 6% last year, while yoga pants climbed 7%?!! (pun intended?)
We’re not quite saying yoga pants are the new jean, but why not have fun when going to and from classes? It feels like a great excuse to step up your sportswear game and jump around in some of the newest looks activewear has to offer.
Do you ever style your activewear with more everyday pieces?
