The Cute Activewear We’re Crushing On At Athleta Right Now
Because this sale is such a good one, the team quickly pulled together their top picks. Ever since Kat’s last Athleta post, this Drip Drop Jacket has been on my mind (available in sizes XXS-3X and Kat recommends sizing down). I’m dying over this one-piece in Rust. NEED.
Sale ends 3/8!

Kat’s Athleta Favs
Lately Athleta has been my absolute favorite when it comes to activewear, athflow and athleisure pieces. I could have easily picked 20+ items that I have and love, which are all included in the sale. Their commitment to inclusion is outstanding, and I love that as of January, I can now walk into any store and shop all their plus-size selections. The quality, the fit, everything about their brand right now is just so so good, they have my heart and my money! ps. you can see more close ups of me in my favorite drip drop jacket here! XX
1 | Drip Drop Jacket: This jacket is beyond good. I own it in black and white and absolutely love how it creates that hourglass shape. It does run large, so I recommend sizing down.
2 | Shanti Watercolor Stripe Crop Tank: Every time I wear this crop I get tons of compliments. I love how versatile it is for working out or wearing out and about.
3 | Brooklyn Jogger: I LOVE these! They are my favorite joggers right now! Spoiler alert!: They are great for any activity and everyday wear.
4 | Nolita Wide Leg Pant: I am crushing on these wide-leg pants. They give me slight palazzo pant vibes.
5 | Pacifica Illume Fitted Top: A great base layer for skiiing and hiking. Plus, this bright orange color is calling my name.
6 | Karma Twist Back Cami: This cami is a cutie and has some serious cutouts in the back.
7 | Salutation Jogger: My go-to joggers for yoga and when I want a little more stretch for my workouts. They are the perfect loose-fitting workout pant.
Jess’ Athleta Favs
The TME team got me hooked BIG TIME on all things Athleta. I am obsessed with pretty much everything. I’m a huge fan of their leggings, pants, knits and outerwear. Everything fits so amazingly and the quality is TOP NOTCH. If I had to narrow it down to my top favorites from this sale, it would be the Shasta v-neck sweater (LOVE the oversized fit and slit sides), the Whisper Featherless Jacket (gorgeous shade of green) and of course my first Athleta love, the Delancey Gleam tights (so chic and sassy).
1 | Delancey Gleam Tight: These tights were the first ever Athleta purchase I made, and the reason I fell in love with this brand right off the bat. I LOVE these tights!
2 | Recycled Grandview PrimaLoft® Shell: One of my favorite categories at Athleta is their outerwear. I am obsessed with pretty much all their jackets and coats. I love the simplicity and chicness of their designs, like this lightweight waffle knit shell.
3 | Hawthorn Crew Sweater: Soft, crew neck, boucle sweater. I’m a big fan of this color blue; it’s a great neutral shade to mix and match in your closet.
4 | Solace Bra: Look at that back!
5 | Stellar Trousers: The most versatile pants ever. From the office, to the gym, to lounging, (even to the golf course) there is nothing these pants can’t do. I love the fabric and fit of these pants, but make sure to size up, they run small.
6 | Jacquard Crew Sweater: I love this muted neutral camo pattern so much. It’s such a versatile piece.
7 | Mala Hoodie Dress: This is one of my favorite Athleta hoodies/sweatshirts EVER. The material is so super-soft and high-quality but it’s also lightweight, making it perfect for Spring.
8 | Whisper Featherless Jacket: The pick I was most excited from today’s sale. I just HAD to order this jacket as soon as I saw it; I couldn’t help myself. I seriously LOVE LOVE LOVE everything about it.
9 | Shasta Sweater: My other favorite piece from this sale, I ordered this sweater in white AND grey because I couldn’t decide which one I liked more.
Meredith’s Athleta Favs
Athleta’s clothing has always been versatile, which I appreciate, because truly getting dressed is half the battle for me when it comes to actually working out. I love how they have made a commitment to being more size-inclusive and really expanded their clothing options outside of the typical “workout” gear.
1| Salutation Jogger: Maybe it’s being home too long, but I’m kind of over tight workout leggings. I want something fitted, but comfy. These Salutation Joggers look perfect for everything from a quick sun salutation to lounging around with a good book. I also love how you can make it a matching outfit with this bra and this top.
2| Conscious Crop Top: Yes, I got a Peloton that I use as a big ‘ol clothes hanger more than I actually cycle, but I’m trying to change that. This Conscious Crop Top is ideal for a spin (and it would look cute under a cardigan or jacket).
3| Skyline Short II: We may or may not be traveling this summer, but these skyline shorts are cute and practical. I love regular outfits that have the potential to endure a workout. It makes me feel like I’m halfway there.
4| Cabo Linen Wide Leg Pant: These Cabo Linen Wide-Leg pants are perfect for those summer days when you’re not feeling shorts. Plus, pockets!
5| Winona Midi Support Dress: I’ve always wanted to try a sporty dress, and this Winona Midi Support Dress looks perfect. It’s long AND it has built-in support that mimics your favorite bra.
6| North Point Crop Rashguard: I need a new rashguard and this North Point Crop Rashguard would look great with a high-waisted bathing suit bottom. Also, this bright color is speaking to me. (Here’s a longer one for those who don’t love a crop top).
Laura’s Athleta Favs
Y’all know my love for Athleta pieces runs deep. Their pants and joggers are some of the best investments I’ve made. Great for travel and versatility, and I could just go on and on. Recently I tried a bunch of their swimsuits out, so check those, too. There are some super cute, unique finds!
1 | 2a & 2b | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7
1 | Renew Racerback Tank: I’ve been checking this tank out for a few weeks now. It’s that color and the fit. Awesome workout top that would look great with olive or gray leggings. It’s anti-microbial, breathable, and easy wash/dry fabric.
2a & b | Rib High Neck Tankini & Medium Bottoms: I have and love this set. I tried it recently, sent it back, and then wound up reordering it because I thought it was so flattering! I didn’t have a good suit to be more active in, so this is it now! I adore the neckline and the back. Way more flattering than many tankinis! TTS. Wearing Small top & Medium bottoms.
3 | Studio Wide Leg: Another Athleta fav of mine, especially as it warms up. These are SO soft and flowy, and the waistband is insanely comfy. I love them with a knotted tee and sandals. Got them last late summer and can’t wait to wear the heck out of them this year! TTS.
4 | Warrior Long-line Bra: Hey-o space dye! You know I love it. This is the D/DD option and I adore that they have that in some of their bras and swimsuits. This color!
5 | Space Dye Elation Tight: Some of their best-selling leggings in space dye AND this gorgeous sunny shade. Yes please!
6 | Entwined Suit: Everyone loved this from my recent post, so I’ll be trying it on soon! Comes in black and that gorgeous orange color. I love, love the back cutout and the slightly capped sleeves for something different! I find most of their suits fit true to size.
7 | Venice Joggers: These are the closest to my older beloved Athleta joggers I used to rave about. I honestly haven’t had a bad pair of joggers from these people. They are the magical jogger creators, and these are adorable and would dress up or down just like mine. They come in regular, tall and petite and also extended sizes. Rad. And they are in a pretty light gray, medium gray and black.
Scotti’s Athleta Favs
I LOVE Athleta for all things high-quality, cute and comfy that are perfect for quarantine life and beyond. Ever since I discovered their entire Cabo Linen Line last summer, I haven’t looked back. I’ve managed to narrow it down to some of the best pieces I own that are included in the sale…and these are currently on their way to me. Woot!
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 (wide-leg here) | 7
1 | Nolita Wide-Leg Pants: These are on their way to me. I couldn’t resist that wide-leg silhouette with the Featherweight Stretch™ fabric…I’ll do a review soon!
2 | Renew Support Top: Another one on its way to me. It had amazing reviews and “the cups don’t get messed up when you wash it” one sold me! Love that you don’t have to wear a bra underneath.
3 | Essence Flow Top: This is like the epitome of my favorite type of shirt: soft, off-the-shoulder, and drapey without being sloppy, fitted on the bottom without being tight. LOVE.
4 | Salutation Camo Joggers: My new favorites. I’ll be wearing them a TON this fall. (When paired with the essence flow top it’s like the perfect loungewear outfit ever — SO comfy and still cute enough for whatever you’ve got on your agenda.)
5 | Skyline Pants: You have to feel these pants to believe how soft and comfy they are, and I love the way they show off the waist. (See how I styled them here.)
6 | Cabo Linen Joggers & Cabo Linen Wide Leg Pants: I fell in love with the entire Cabo Linen line last summer. They’re so comfy and easy, and I really couldn’t decide between the joggers and the wide leg. I love the thicker waistband on both because they kind of smooth you out without creating a muffin-top situation.
7 | Speedlight Camo Top: My favorite base layer shirt. I love the thumbholes and the strip of sticky material at the bottom that keeps it in place. I’ve been wearing this one all the time for everything from sledding to skiing to just walking outside. Love.
Linzi’s Athleta Favs
I’m starting the search for the perfect summer pants early this year. I LOVE a good linen pant in summer and the Athleta Black Cabos just came in (I’m in love), but I also now want to try the new textured version. I have a feeling I’ll be living in both this summer. Some other great summer pant options included in the sale, too.
1 | Farallon Jogger: **0-26 Sizing** Looking for a new hiking pant for our summer hiking trip…maybe these? I tried them in cream in October, but this olive would be much more practical for me.
2 | Linen Cabo Wide Leg Pant: **0-26 Sizing** These just came in, and I’m in love! More substantial than my Roxy’s and the waist is not too low and not too high. I got the size 6 petite and like that length to wear with my Birkenstock sandals.
3 | Cabo Retreat Linen Pant: **0-26 Sizing** Another great linen option…such a pretty rose color, but comes in black too.
4 | Farallon Printed Jogger: **0-26 Sizing** Such a pretty print. I know I would likely wear these primarily with a white tank, but might be fun to do some pattern mixing too.
5 | Cabo Linen Textured Wide-Leg Pant: **0-26 Sizing** I love my black ones that just came in, but this color and texture looks dreamy for summer. I’m going to have to try them.
6 | Studio Wide Leg Pant: **Sustainable Pick & XXS-3X Sizing** My fav lounging pants from last summer. SO soft, so comfy, and I did wear them out-and-about as well with a tee tucked in.
Which pieces will you snag?
Oh, hey, Pinners!
The Winona dress may be the best thing I ever purchased from Athleta. I own it in two colors.
I love the Cabo linen too but struggle to style them because of the drawstring. What are y’all wearing them with?
Hey Jen! I’m going to do a blog on this topic in the next coming weeks! I have a bunch of ideas and love my black pair 🙂
