Tim Gunn, Tan France, you might want to close your browsers now. Today’s roundup is a tribute to eight fashion lines that prove that activewear belongs both in the studio, and on the streets. And is there a better uniform for the modern woman? Flattering cuts (check), slick designs (check), and comfort that empowers you to take over the world (check check check). Thanks to these brands, we’re not embarrassed to rock our leggings long after a workout, and finally, the words “fashionable” and “fit” are no longer mutually exclusive.

1. ALALA

Minimalist, edgy, and with a hint of futuristic, this luxury women’s activewear brand has a sophisticated downtown attitude.


2. Alo Yoga

With stretchy fabrics in bohemian cuts, Alo is likely already taking up real estate in the closets of your hardcore yogi friends.

It comes as no surprise that Free People is killing it in the activewear department. Their FP Movement line has super cute styles for both your highest performance and most zen practice.

For the fit minimalist, this is a line of sporty basics you wont want to take off. The spot-on colors make  it a personal favorite of mine.

Founded by former model Tatiana Korsakova, Vaara offers a stylized edit of leotards, color-blocked sports bras, cozy sweatshirts, and jersey tops you can wear for working out or lounging.

6. P.E. Nation

Featuring bold colors, geometric shapes, and fashion-forward silhouettes, P.E Nation is a mashup of ’90s gym class meets city girl.

7. LNDR

This UK-based brand has it all— crops, bras, leggings and outerwear, and every piece is done in their famous clean, minimal designs.

When it comes to pattern on workout clothes, there’s a fine line between cheesy and chic. The Upside is the latter, causing many to rethink their commitment to solid workout clothes.

    I must admit, I’m a bit of an active wear junkie. Ever since I started getting more invested in working out, I’ve found that I have been spending much more time in my workout outfits. Thus, I’m all for the stylish active wear now. Vaara is one of my new favorite brands and I can’t seem to get enough of them – except that the price is a bit ridiculous. I also love Alo Yoga and LNDR. I haven’t tried P.E. Nation yet but I’ve seen a bunch of people rave about them so I’ll have to try them out. I also love FlexxFit, Lily Body, Varley, and Running Bare. Have a great weekend.

    The BABE Shop is my go to. They have quality US made products, breathable fabric and some of the best original designs. They are sooo comfortable and hold up well through my workouts or even just daily wear. They are so freaking cute! I get so many compliments on them. http://www.thebabeshop.com
