It runs like clockwork for me: every summer I dip my toe into the pool of colorful tops and dresses, then winter arrives with the longing for pops of red during the holidays, and then…the new year hits.
January always features me feeling completely overstimulated by color and excessive clothing, and immediately I begin digging through my closet for all my favorite Vuori basics like a dog after a prized bone. It’s a major sigh of relief when I’m back to (the best) basics.
Vuori Basics Worth Buying Again & Again
Vuori is my prized bone.
From the day my husband and I stumbled upon their newly opened flagship store and I tried on their (now famous) Performance Joggers, they stole the front spot in my closet.
I’m being completely honest when I tell you Vuori makes the pieces I’ve been buying again and again…for years.
It’s just those pieces — the favorites I’ve purchased in multiples and make sure to replace in a heartbeat if anything ever happens to them — that I crave to start a new year with. They are simultaneously comforting and motivating.
I’m happy to report that even through all the years and the fame Vuori has gained, their performance apparel is just as perfect as it was to begin with. So many brands tweak things over the course of their product’s lifetime and it can be a major bummer when a fave item can no longer be found the way it once was when you fell in love with it.
This is not the case for Vuori’s Performance Joggers. In fact, since these pants are now being offered in two different lengths instead of just the one I first purchased, (I love the long length in medium for my 5’9″ self), they’ve arguably gotten better. Not to mention they’ve added different styles with the same iconic fabric, like the Boyfriend Joggers I’m trying next!
Another happy benefit to Vuori’s success and growth is the addition of multiple core colors for each piece. While the brand’s rotating seasonal colors have become something to look forward to, my favorites will always be the neutral shades. They’re the easiest to style up or simply throw-on-and-go.
Like A Dream: The Halo Performance Hoodie
I still have some of my Vuori pieces from their very early days, which is a testament to their lasting quality, but I couldn’t believe when I tried on the Halo Performance Hoodie that I hadn’t owned it sooner.
The hoodie is the same iconic DreamKnit™ softness as the jogger, which when worn together is exactly what I thought living in the clouds would be like as a kid. Childhood bucket list: complete.
An Instant Favorite: The Mudra Fitted Tee
The Mudra Fitted Tee is a surprisingly glorious match for my fave joggers. (Surprising only because I don’t often reach for fitted tops). This baby is so incredibly stretchy and well-made that it was an instant favorite (I keep grabbing it to wear with jeans, too).
It’s true to size, but after trying on two sizes, the stretch is so forgiving you honestly can’t really go wrong (the large was just a bit longer in the waist which, as a tall gal, I loved and preferred). This tee is super fun to layer, and with a built in UPF 30+, it will be perfect for warming weather, too.
I’m also totally into the way the fitted tee helps balance out the ‘matching sweats’ look!
Soft, Easy & Flattering: The Clean Elevation Legging
I’ve been collecting colors of my favorite Daily Legging for some time, but Vuori’s Clean Elevation Legging, which I’m wearing here, just recently caught my eye for the first time (how could it not with this epic neutral camo color). These are unique with a soft suede-like feel, and they’re as easy to pull on and off as they are completely flattering.
The pockets on both the hoodie and leggings are unbelievably genius. Vuori has not only thought about the ideal secure spaces for your keys, but the zippered pocket on these Clean Elevation Leggings is big enough for my keys and my slim 4 card wallet.
Michigan weather hack: since these leggings are moisture-wicking and full coverage, I wear them under the joggers on those extra icy winter days so I stay warm and dry for outdoor activities. Yet they’re also the kind of leggings you “accidentally” crawl into bed still wearing. True story.
