At Glik’s, we love the versatility and flexibility athleisure wear brings to our lives. Whether you’re a busy soccer mom, college student, or actually working out, athletic wear should be a staple in your closet. Athleisure includes comfortable and breathable pieces, normally with technical or cotton materials. Our favorite trendy pieces are seamless rompers or jumpsuits, leggings, biker shorts, and crewneck or hooded sweatshirts. Sports bras and ribbed bramis are also a simple go-to, especially for a matching set moment. You can then pair belt bags, trucker hats, and chunky sneakers to complete your athleisure looks. When the weather cools down, puffer vests and sweatpants can create an elevated casual look too. Our favorite brands that carry all these awesome athletic pieces include Love Tree Clothing, NikiBiki, Mono B, and Simply Southern.
Although most of these athletic pieces are catered towards women, men’s athleisure is on the rise too! Our go-to men’s athletic wear includes joggers, hoodies, and drawstring shorts. They can finish the look with casual sneakers, a hat, and a backpack too. You’ll love them all from brands like The North Face, Patagonia, and 1897, our in-house brand. The 1897 collection features activewear for both men and women including classic matching sets and crewneck sweatshirts, so there’s something for everyone.
