The Fall Athleisure Pieces that Your Closet Needs

Friday, Sep 4, 2020 | Featured

Sweater + Legging Weather is Upon Us! Here are Our Favorites:

Because we’ve spent more time at home, as of late, athleisure has become more normalized than ever. We’re reaching for the cotton joggers instead of the jeans. The flowy sweater instead of the button up blouse. Rather than pulling out our workout clothes, solely to be active in, we’re been wearing them nonstop. We don’t see any reason to stop this. Now that temperatures are beginning to drop, maybe it’s time to splurge on some new pieces. 

We all know that there are two different types of comfort clothes. There’s the kind that needs to be comfortable in a supportive, I’m about to sweat for 45 minutes on an elliptical, kind of way. Then there’s the kind that needs to be comfortable in the I’m working from home, may run a few errands and want to feel relaxed, type of way. Some pieces cross over into both sections. Some are strict one typers. Today, we want to shed some light on some athleisure pieces that we’ve dubbed as our favorites for both categories, as well as a few all stars that check both boxes.

Honorable Mentions:

Outdoor Voices RecTrek Pant 

These pants wear more hats than one can even name. The fit is flattering on truly every body-type. The material is so versatile that you almost feel more inclined to diversify your day, as soon as you put them on. Pair them with a tank top and running shoes for a day-time hike (or dog walk around the block. Then throw on a chunky sweater and slip on sneakers for a sophisticated fall ensemble. 

OFFLINE (for Aerie) Nylon Jumpsuit

Who doesn’t love a good jumpsuit? Especially one you can lounge, and be active in! This is one of those pieces that you’ll wonder how you ever lived without. Walk the dog, chase the kids, change your shoes, go to dinner, rinse and repeat. The softness of this piece is that of your athleisure dreams. While the criss cross back gives you all the breathability for your next sweat sesh. 

Target’s All In Motion French Terry Cardigan

Is there anything that Target can’t do right? Probably not. This drapey cardigan is a perfect item for your fall athleisure wardrobe. It’s soft enough to wear straight on skin, over your workout tanks. Yet it’s flowy enough to wear on top of chunky pieces. Another great feature is its length. Great pair with either high waisted leggings, or classic skinny jeans. 

We hope these pieces breathe a whole new life into your everyday routine as we shift from summer to fall. Nothing quite like new clothes to motivate you into doing things outside of your comfort zone!
