I know I’ve been posting a lot more about activewear than jeans lately (I mean, my last post featured said subject)…and I’ll admit, the current state of affairs might have something to do with it. Staying home for longer amounts of time means I’m grabbing for more comfortable apparel in my closet, and as surprisingly comfy as many of the jeans I’ve written about in the past are, my leggings have never shined brighter. I honestly just wore a pair of jeans for the first time in months last week! Anyway, it’s interesting watching the market change, as well as our styling preferences. I’m sure many of us might also be investing more in gym clothes for our home workouts since now we have more time to take care of ourselves. American Eagle is one brand that is constantly on it when it comes to industry trends, so it’s no surprise they have been churning out a ton of cute activewear, or athleisure (if you’re doing less gym and more lounging or running errands in your gym clothes), under their sister brand Aerie.
The new OFFLINE by Aerie line includes several ribbed and seamless athleisure styles to bring you ultimate comfort for the gym or the couch. When I think “ribbed”, usually it’s in the form of a tank top (I’m sure we all have those beater tanks lying around as closet staples). I don’t think I’ve ever seen it implemented into any other style! One thing I do love about American Eagle is they never go overboard. They excel at creating basics that never lose their style appeal, fit all sizes and ages, and keep you comfy. Several of these new styles are also created without seams sticking into your sides for even more of a cuddly factor.
Below are my favorite ribbed and seamless athleisure pieces from the OFFLINE by Aerie collection below. I have to say my favorite is the OFFLINE OG Ribbed Sports Bra and OFFLINE Ribbed Lace Up Sports Bra. But bras aside, one can’t have too many leggings, right?
