Newly stylish athletic gear continues to blur the lines between workout and weekend wear. Although the moniker athleisure may be cumbersome, it’s pretty darned accurate! No longer is it a fashion faux-pas to stop for coffee still wearing yoga clothes, or pick the kids up at school after hitting the gym. Now more than ever, cotton and Spandex tanks, tees, and leggings have become basic wardrobe components. In fact, according to some style mavens, fabrics have taken so sharp a turn toward comfort that fashion may never entirely turn back! Like most women, I crave pieces that are practical and comfy, but also stylish. Luckily, this summer I discovered Athletic Junction, an amazing new source for tanks, tees, leggings, and other essential athleisure pieces.
One example is the fab Live Your Legacy tee, pictured. The tee is a lightweight, breathable cotton and Spandex mix, with just the right amount of “give.” It’s made incredibly well, with double stitched seams, generous hems, and a printed front and back. Retail $14.
Other must-haves include racer-back tank tops, hoodies, and leggings. There are even socks, drawstring bags and hats!
The Athletic Junction line of workout / weekend wear is the brainchild of college and professional athletes-turned-businessmen Michael Parker and Justin Harper. The duo brings a unique perspective which they apply to the brand. According to the pair, “In life there are choices to be made when we arrive at forks in the road. These moments reveal themselves every day.” (So, choose the yoga mat, instead of the hammock in the background!)
