You’ll Love Urban Outfitters’ Preppy New Athleisure Collab
By now, we get the jist of what an athleisure collection has to offer: there will be comfy-cute sweaters, leggings that can go from desk-to-treadmill and sports bras you’d rather be wearing as tops. As much as we love dressing the part of the cozy girl (even when we’re not binge watching shows on Netflix), we’re ready for this sporty trend to move beyond chic sweatpants. In other words, we want to know what’s next. Taking a look at Urban Outfitters latest athleisure line, inspiration is moving out of the gym and onto the tennis court.
In an exclusive collaboration with classic sports brand Fila, UO just put an extremely preppy spin on athleisure. Full of retro-inspired styles like striped polo dresses, raglan sweatshirts, snap-front mini skirt and athletic jackets, the line is definitely meant to be worn when you want to lounge like a Wimbledon winner versus being the pieces that bridge the gap between your on-duty outfit and workout gear. It doesn’t quite tick all of the girl-on-the-go boxes, but we’re willing to let slide for the imminent Margot Tenenbaum makeover we’ll be getting.
Start lacing up your white sneakers now, the Fila x Urban Outfitters collection will launch Monday online at select Urban Outfitters stores around the country. It might be time to give the chic sweatpants for Thanksgiving.
