I have such a soft spot for activewear…way back over ten years ago when I first started my journey into fitness, I didn’t care much about clothing that I was simply going to sweat in and toss in the hamper. I’d frequent Ross for the cheapest items I could find, before I realized how much better I felt in pieces that were less bulky and more breathable. Back then though, there wasn’t as huge of an option for stylish and comfortable activewear. Over the years, I collected much more functional pieces that were definitely more stylish than before, but I still didn’t give gym style that much thought. Lately, as activewear made its way from the gym to the street in competition with the denim industry, there has been an explosion of amazing designs out there—it seems the sky is now the limit when it comes to creativity in designs within the athleisure market boom! I now have several pieces that I love so much that I don’t even wear in the gym at all, mostly from Zobha, a huge favorite of mine.
I wrote about Carbon38, an incredible online stop for high end activewear, about two years ago with a post about leggings I was seriously coveting. Since then, I’ve kept my eyes on their impressive growth. Not only do they have their own activewear line, but they also carry favorites from brands such as MONROW, Onzie, NSF, Blanc Noir, ALO Yoga and more. Unlike most shops of its kind out there, they take more of the edgier side, with gorgeous detailing such as moto and hardware accents, sleek wet-look fabrics, braiding, embroidery, and totally unique cuts. Their new Moto Collection, made up entirely of pieces by Carbon38 themselves, is a dream for a fitness and style nut like me…it’s all almost too awesome to sweat in! Here is a sampling of some of my favorite items from all new arrivals on their website, including some pieces from said collection.
I kind of want it all. Don’t you? Shop more amazingness from Carbon38 and other brands they carry here.
