Friends. As someone who has historically been into fashion and someone who has also been mostly wearing the same purple sweatpants on and off for weeks, I need some variety. *insert smiling sweat emoji here* There’s definitely something comforting about wearing these old sweats on repeat, but it’s time for a change at this point. Like, for real. I feel like my current co-workers would say the same. Heh. I haven’t asked, but I’d bet they could use some variety on mom, too.
Athleta For An Upgrade: Cute At-Home Workout Outfits
And as much as I love jeans, unfortunately, most of those are lingering for who-knows-how-long in the old closet right now. Give the people what they want…stretchy waistbands, amiright? If you saw our newsletter the other day, you know that’s what we’re wearing over here.
So, when Athleta reached out for us to peruse some of their stretchy waistbands I was stoked to find some really cool pieces, friends. These are not our yoga pants of yesteryear, as Athleta fans know. These pieces will take you through your sweat sessions and beyond in style. YES. A fresh upgrade that isn’t old purple sweats?! I’m in.
Athleta Workout Favorites: Not-So-Basic Black
When it comes to versatility and closet staples that are good investments, you can’t go wrong with black. It always looks chic and cool. But, I know a few of my go-to black pieces could use an upgrade to reflect a little more current cut, shape and vibe. I want all of these below. They feel totally fresh and cool. Doing my barre3 workouts at home right now is keeping me sane and healthy. These types of pieces would help feed that part of me that’s getting a little neglected right now, the part of me that vibes on style. I think it’s important to keep that alive and well these days, too. This collection is getting me excited about clothes again and that feels huge.
1/ Cloudlight Relaxed Muscle Tank: One of my top picks. I ordered it and plan to wear for workouts, and with a cute bralette or sports bra this summer.
2/ Shanti Crop Jacquard Tank: LOVE the cool print on this. I’ve been adding more cropped workout bra tops to my collection and am feeling good about these with my high-waisted leggings. Plus, less laundry! And we’re working out at home right now, so rock the crop tops!
3/ Essence Twist Top: This style is really flattering on us shorter-waisted folks. Love these with high-waist leggings. It’d also be so cute with the wide leg culottes I’ve linked below, too!
4/ Studio Jogger: These just look insanely comfy and cute. Offered in petite and tall lengths, too, so we can all get the right fit.
5/ Canopy Parachute Jacket: Adore. Adore. Off to put in my cart. This comes in a cool mustard, as well as a great olive green, too. Which one?
6/ Salutation Jogger: Love the look of these as a similar version to my older favorite Athleta joggers. I love that they’re a slimmer fit, so it makes them more wearable outside of lounging. A slim jogger really does travel well and dress up well, and of course, they’re comfy, too.
Athleta Workout Favorites: Upgrade Your Earth Tones
Color is a huge mood-booster, and these gorgeous shades below are seriously boosting for me right now. Colors don’t have to be bright to be uplifting — as someone who only occasionally embraces wearing much color, these earth tones are just the right balance of wearable and fresh. The palette at Athleta is good right now, friends. I am here for it.
1/ Exhale Bra in Powervita: Love the colors it comes in, the sizing options AND the pretty strappy back.
2/ Cloudlight Relaxed Muscle Tank: This is the shade I ordered this tank in, to wear with all my black pieces.
3/ Exhale Bra: Another gorgeous shade in this popular sports bra. Comes in both A-C sizing and D-DD.
4/ Salutation Stash Capri: This purple is just beautiful. This legging style has a pocket for keys or phone.
5/ Exhale Printed Bra: The same favorite bra in a pretty tie-dye print. Also comes in a gray print, too.
6/ Elation Snow 7/8 Tight: Matching tights. These are one of their most popular styles. Nicely high-waisted and the perfect 7/8 length.
7/ Shanti Crop Rib Tank: Loving these neutral shades to pair with black for a little springy update.
8/ Run With It Half Zip: Another great piece for walking or running. It packs into a wearable backpack if you get too hot! No more trying to tie it at your waist and all the problems that brings.
