When the weather turns cooler and cozying up on the couch with a pumpkin-anything becomes the norm, we have to admit, we spend a lot of our time in activewear. But nowadays, activewear is socially acceptable outside our homes and gyms, right? Right! Plus, half of the activewear on the market currently looks like it was meant for more than sweating anyways. When we find ourselves wanting another pair of mesh cut-out leggings over a pair of jeans (wait, what?!), we know something’s up. So, we rounded up our favorite stylish activewear brands that you need to know about! But really, their stuff is soooo cute and obviously comfy! So, treat yourself! And if you do decide to hit up the gym in them, don’t be without our gym bag beauty essentials.
We love Sweaty Betty for it’s functional workout wear and fun patterns – how cool are these floral leggings?! Plus, they have quite the active community on Instagram so we can check out our favorite looks before we buy.
These leggings are the reason we first fell for Outdoor Voices. Plus, their cute crop tops. Wearing their activewear is like wearing you’re favorite high school sweatpants and heather grey sweater – it’s that soft.
We love anything Carrie Underwood touches, so it’s no surprise we’re big fans of her Calia by Carrie line. It’s super cute AND affordable. These mesh criss-cross leggings are super fun and we need this tank in every color.

Remember when you thought nothing could ever feel as good as your lulu’s? Ya, us too. That is, until we slipped on a pair of Beyond Yoga leggings. This high waisted pair is ultra flattering and perfect for fall.
When it comes to cool, no one does it like Carbon 38. They have streetwear as well, so you can count on them for an activewear look that transitions from couch to dinner seamlessly. Also, how cool are these white camo leggings?!
It didn’t start out in activewear, but that didn’t stop Free People from launching FP Movement… and making us want every piece! Their activewear is ultra soft, surprisingly affordable, and just as bohemian as you would expect. Wear these turnout leggings anywhere for any workout (or not!) and lounge in this sweatshirt all season long.
