Has there ever been a better time to be an athleisure fan? There are trendy activewear brands popping up seemingly every day, and you can hardly scroll through Instagram without running into ads for the sleekest and chicest new leggings and sports bras. The best part? Most sportswear brands now create styles that look just as good while you’re out and about as they do in the gym, so you can wear them from barre class straight to the bar.
Traditional brands like Nike and Adidas are still leaders in the activewear space, but there’s also a plethora of fashion-meets-function brands looking to fulfill your stylish sportswear needs.
