Resolution Worthy Activewear from Shopbop
Happy New Year everyone! It’s back to the grind for me…and back to my usual blogging consistency! I don’t really do the resolutions thing, as I tend to find what makes me happy and feel fulfilled and keep it up through the year. But, why not have a good reason to start fresh on your goals? As someone who frequents the gym and enjoys running (and overall does my best to stay fit for the sake of my sanity), one of my favorite apparel categories to shop is activewear. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed the explosion of awesome prints and designs on the market, especially this year when activewear stepped up and became a direct competition for denim as everyday wear. I usually stick to the tried and true, well known activewear brands, like Puma, Asics, and Fila, but Shopbop is always pumping out gorgeous and super innovative pieces from top quality apparel designers such as Mara Hoffman and Zara Terez. Of course, these brands overlap the activewear industry, so it makes sense, but each piece is totally representative of their respective designers. For the new year, Shopbop has released a new activewear line to make keeping our resolutions to get fit or stay fit a heck of a lot more fun (and stylish), and I was just admiring ALL OF IT! So I figured I’d put together my favorite pieces here, from both premium contemporary brands such as the above stated, as well as a few of my favorite yoga and legging brands like Onzie! Whether or not these are prices you enjoy, they are fun to look at…and I know activewear is definitely one of those categories where “you get what you pay for” holds true since this unique type of fabric has a pretty hefty job: to keep you dry, provide support and compression (in some cases) and last through years of workouts! I’ve learned this many times from my own experiences. But either way, enjoy, I hope you like them too.
