To say that we don't wear athleisure at the office is an understatement. All year long, our employees are lucky enough to enjoy comfortable office attire, perfect for after-work yoga, morning boxing, and mid-day deskercises. Since we all have different tastes and opinions, we polled everyone in the office to find out which retailers they rely on to stock up on shorts, leggings, workout tops, sports bras, and more.
Here is an all-encompassing guide to our team's favorite workout attire!
These workout sets are so colorful and are a sure way of brightening up your daily workouts! Also, Emma Chamberlain and Claudia Sulewski sport these on the regular, and they have us giving them all the heart eyes!

Though activewear is one of the most popular areas of fashion, it feels like there are only two options. On the one hand, there's performance gear — the clothes typically made with professional athletes and high-intensity workouts in mind. And on the other is athleisure, which entails chic and comfortable staples you might find yourself in while lounging or running errands rather than spending time at the gym. However, if there's one brand that seems to nail the perfect balance between the two, it's Gymshark. The sportswear brand is known for its sleek pieces that'll still get you through the toughest workouts, making it a favorite among fitness enthusiasts.
