The Best Athleisure Brands to Start Wearing Now

It’s become pretty standard to wear workout gear on the weekend—whether you’re headed to the gym or not. Leggings are wardrobe staples and can go beyond the gym when paired with a cool crop top and jacket. But while leggings will always have a place in our closets, right now we’re also thinking about newer ways to wear athleisure.

Our eyes are on the tracksuits and sweatpants that have been making a major comeback over the last few seasons. When a brand like Vetements teams up with Champion to create a collection of hoodies and jogger trousers, it’s a sure sign the trend will continue to be coveted by fashion girls.
