The word “athleisure” is thrown around so much it barely holds any meaning. Like, yeah, dude, we get it: comfort and style, form and function. The usual. Which is why it’s so refreshing to see a brand like Old Navy just call their new line of sportswear Old Navy Active, taking it as a common sense that the threads you take to the gym should help you with your workout and look cute at the same time.
And Old Navy’s new line really does look cute and fun. Both dudes and dudettes can choose between cool-looking plains and delightful prints and graphics. Women can take their pick from High-Rise and Mid-Rise Compression Leggings, which promises mobility and a form-fitting silhouette with Built-In Sculpt technology. These bottoms can be paired with Performance Tops and Muscle Tanks, and Racerback Sports Bras that can be light, medium or high support. Guys have graphic and plain Crew-Necks and Performance Tees that are equipped with Go Dry moisture-wicking technology.
