Lululemon has great active pants. I own a cropped pair and feel great in them. They use a fabric called “Luxtreme,” which makes the pants feel silky and smooth. They are perfect for a run by the lake or a strenuous hike.
Athleta has great tops and comfy sweaters. They are versatile in the sense that you can do something active, then meet with a friend for lunch and still look and feel great. I think Athleta is especially awesome because they will return your clothes any time for any reason.
Nike has fantastic shoes, but you already knew that. For a birthday, my cousin gave me a pair of hot pink Nike Free Runs. I love them. They’re comfortable, and you can even customize your colors and laces if you want to!
prAna has great dresses. They are made from 100% cotton and are pretty, fit well, and come in different eclectic colors and designs. You can throw over a swimsuit as a cover up, or just by itself with a pair of flip-flops.
Wearing athletic clothing instantly inspires me to do something active, and when I know I look good doing it, it makes it that much better, especially when traveling. Hey, they’re easy to pack too! It’s a win-win situation.
