Workout wear has come a long way since the days of Olivia Newton-John and Jane Fonda’s fluorescent sweatbands, unitards and leg warmers. Today’s active wear collections look more like everyday clothes, ones you seamlessly wear from the grocery store to hot yoga (or vice versa). As we prepare to embark on those New Year’s exercise resolutions, here are a few of our favorite fashion-forward active pieces from local boutiques Fabletics and Houppette.
Fabletics Fabletics, a recent addition to the Christiana Mall, offers high-quality, fashion-infused active wear. We’re loving the casual Attis Jacket ($69.95) layered over a cozy Scoop Tee Long Sleeve II ($39.95) paired with the Clover Legging II ($79.95). For a more business casual ensemble, throw on the Provence Legging ($79.95) with a Balm Tank ($29.95) and Primrose Blazer ($84.95). Fabletics’ December collection—Glitz and Glam—features favorite pieces from actress and style maven Kate Hudson. The Salar Legging ($84.95), Metallic Slouch Beanie ($19.95), Snowshoe Pullover ($59.95) and Fabletics 4-Pack Hair Ties ($5.95) will add some pizzazz to your winter workout gear.
Houppette The Greenville boutique not only sells luxurious makeup and skincare, it also carries Prism Sport and Beyond Yoga workout wear, making its clients head-to-toe fabulous. Prism Sport’s Rio Classic Legging ($86) combines a trendy watercolor print with a seamless fitted shape. Consider pairing it with a black Peplum Vest ($138). The fitted sleeveless, zip-up top with a hot neoprene look can be worn alone or layered with a lightweight knit. Beyond Yoga’s Shine So Bright ($99) loose knit in heather gray and its Rise Above Long Legging ($102), a high-waist striped mesh long legging that frames your figure perfectly, will take you from your Pilates class to date night effortlessly.
