Although the secret’s now out about what women actually do in yoga pants, sometimes you do want to, ya know, work out. And while most of us are living in athleisure these days, not all pieces are designed with that true range of activities in mind.
I’ve gathered from friends and personal experience that more often than not, the leggings you wear around town for running errands just aren’t the same leggings you’ll trust to support your booty during an actual run. Hot yoga without moisture-wicking fabric? Forget about it. These days we’re seeking out stylish athleisure wear that actually functions, too.
Enter Calvin Klein’s newest performance range. With styles so fresh you won’t want to take them off, it’s a good thing they’re designed for both performance and ultimate comfort. The sleek collection is engineered with innovative stretch and quick-dry, moisture-wicking fabric and features a variety of styles from sports bras and bodycon leggings to logo zip hoodies and jogger sweatpants. We easily fell for the floral prints and contemporary twist on the iconic signature Calvin Klein logo—feminine, with an edge.
I convinced good friend and Nike personal trainer, Bec Wilcock, to head out of town with me for a girls retreat, where we put the Calvin Klein Performance Range to the test during a weekend full of yoga, fresh air, good eats and chilling. A little sweat and a lot of sweats, if you will.
The collection held up beautifully during our active excursions, and yet every piece was also soft and cozy enough for simply lounging around the house in. Below are seven of our favorite Calvin Klein Performance women’s activewear styles, perfect for hitting the fitness studio or just slipping into a pile of pillows and a face-mask in.
Great for layering or styling solo, this relaxed fit is cut in a luxuriously comfortable cotton terry blend and finished with a contrast drawstring at the waist.
Nothing is better than a truly second-skin fit. The simple design, logo detailing and high-rise waistband make this wardrobe staple-worthy.
Moisture-wicking fabric and contrasting bra panel details make this open racerback the ultimate in comfort and flexibility; whilst the leggings offer a pretty pattern, sheer mesh panels and a sporty stripe detail lend playful sophistication to this a must-have style.
With an edgy boxy fit and graphic logo along the sleeve, this hoodie is perfect for exercising in during cooler months or throwing on post-workout any time of year.
