I’ve noticed that increasingly, my girlfriends and I will opt for a fun workout class such as SoulCycle or Barry’s Bootcamp followed by brunch or dinner rather than going out for drinks. In a way, our generation has made working out our social activity of choice, but it also means the bar is raised on fitness fashion.
I recently came across Namastetics, a lifestyle brand that fully embraces this concept, and there’s been no turning back from it on days I have my workout “dates” of sorts.
The Canadian brand is highly functional and technical in terms of its design and fabrics, which is what we first and foremost look for in our gear. But, the designs are super edgy and sexy – think mesh cutouts, “ripped” leggings, and ballerina straps. These “Fearless” leggings pictured above are so on trend with mesh cutouts and retail for $42.95.
I own three pairs of Namastetics and I pretty much can’t go a workout class without three or four girls unprompted gushing over my leggings and asking me where I bought them. And, their price point is much more palatable than Lululemon and other competitors. Some of their leggings start at just $25. The “Midnight Ballet” leggings pictured above with fun tie detailing are also just $42.95.
We also adore these “Breathe Easy” leggings, with fun mesh paneling, $42.95.
Oh, there’s also a feel good component to buying Namastetics. They donate an hour of yoga to someone in need with every purchase!
