Huge thanks to Gap and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post
Let’s talk activewear! Now that I live in a new area with different weather, I’ve needed to freshen up my options. In case you are looking to spruce up your activewear as well, I’m partnering with Gap and ShopStyle to share some activewear you could add to your wardrobe!
Also, Gap is running a HUUUUUUGE sale through today, 1/13! You can get 40% off all regular priced items with code PERK and an EXTRA 50% off all sale items with code FAST! Enter the codes at checkout to see the price come down on the items. But hurry, because the sale ends TODAY!
I’ve really been enjoying Gap’s activewear, and they have become one of my go-to places for it! They have a lot of different options in a very inclusive size range, carrying items in straight and plus sizes, and in regular, tall, and petite lengths. Their activewear feels good, especially for the price point, and the value is even sweeter when they run one of their frequent sales like the one that’s going on right now!
On top of that, Gap works hard to create clothes sustainably, responsibly, and in a way that is equitable, through their Gap for Good styles. Gap for Good styles are made in such ways that reduce water usage by at least 20%, use better fibers and recycled materials to lessen waste, partner with mills and other companies who all have a goal to lower emissions, and provide better support for workers. You can read more about it all HERE. Gap is doing some very inspiring things!
In addition to knowing Gap is working towards taking care of others and the planet, they also take care of customers by making it very convenient to shop. Gap offers free shipping on orders $50+ and free return shipping for Gap Good Rewards members so you can order things to try with peace of mind. You can also order online and quickly pick up your order with their in-store and curbside pickup options!
If you are seeking to add a few new activewear pieces, then let’s talk through some pieces to check out!
SIZING: I’m 5’6” and usually S/M or 6 in clothes.
By default I think most of us go for black leggings, but one easy way to change things up is to add 1-2 leggings in other colors. The colors can be bright and bold, but they don’t have to be—even just adding navy or another neutral can go a long way.
These are the High Rise Recycled Brushed Power Leggings, which are a little thicker than standard leggings. While they are not lined with fleece, they keep you a lot warmer than typical leggings. These have upright pockets along the sides, which I prefer over slanted pockets that are on the thighs because upright pockets don’t stick out to add bulk to my thighs. Plus, upright pockets keep my phone more secure! They are made of 79% recycled materials and are also moisture wicking which helps keep your skin dry. These are 40% OFF when you apply code PERK at checkout! They come in 4 colors and in regular, tall, and petite lengths, HERE. I wear size S.
In the winter, I would only wear muscle tanks indoors 🥶, but in case you need to run out quickly or are in a gym and quickly heading to the car, you can throw on a long puffer coat! I love that this coat works with jeans and sweaters, like I showed HERE, and that you can wear it with activewear and pair it with leggings. Plus, it’s water resistant 🙌🏽, so it’s really versatile. Not to mention, it’s lightweight and comfortable to wear, and it nips in at the waist to help create a more flattering shape and fit better around my curves. It’s also made of 100% recycled materials, creating less waste in the world. And it’s also 40% off with code PERK! Check it out HERE. I wear size M.
Speaking of changing up your leggings, I’m digging this brown pair more than I thought I would! They are still a neutral color, but they stand apart from black and gray, making some fresh outfit combos. It’s a fun change! These brown leggings are the same High Rise Recycled Brushed Power Leggings as the navy pair above, and I’m wearing the color “Cherrywood Red” (though they read more like brown).
This is an outfit I’d typically wear for a brisk walk, hike, or trip to the park with our kids. I simply paired the leggings with a black long sleeve activewear tunic, and for another layer, I threw on this puffer vest. I find the vest a little boxy when it’s unzipped, so I kind of want to try one size down. However, it fits well when zipped up, so we’ll see. Either way, what I LOVE about it is that it’s LONG and covers my backside in leggings! (I’m 5’6” for reference.) It’s a great addition to activewear to work with leggings outfits, but you can also pair it with skinny jeans and a sweatshirt. It’s also made of 100% recycled polyester. It comes in 5 colors and one print and in regular, tall, and petite lengths. And it’s 40% off with code PERK! You can find them all HERE. I’m wearing size S.
Also, this top is only $9.99 with today’s sale codes!! Sizes are SUPER limited, but try to grab yours while you can, HERE. The price is UNBEATABLE!
Last up is this pair of joggers with a tie front tunic. You guys NEED to check out these reversible joggers! I will say right off the bat, they unfortunately don’t fit me well, but you should still try them! They are LINED WITH (what feels like) FLEECE, so they are veryyyyyyy COZY, comfy, and WARM! The inside feels cozy like loungewear, but the joggers actually function like activewear, with moisture wicking material. So, you can take walks outside with your family or run errands in athleisure while being super warm and cozy!
As for the fit, you can’t tell in these pictures, but the pockets and higher waist don’t work well around my curvy hips, so the pockets stick out a lot. I think this would work better if you have straighter hips. If you do, definitely try these just to feel them because if they work out for you, they’ll be a great addition! I WISH I could make these work better for myself! They are SO COMFY, and they’re 40% off with code PERK for the rest of today! These come in 3 colors and are available in regular, tall, and petite lengths, HERE. I’m wearing size XS.
I paired these joggers with the GapFit Breathe Hi-Low Tie Front Top, which helps balance the bit of volume the joggers provide. The tie at the bottom helps give you some shape and define your waist without being super formfitting. The material is also breathable and moisture wicking to keep you comfortable and cool during workouts. You can grab this one for 40% off with code PERK as well! This comes in 6 colors and in regular, tall, and petite sizes, HERE! I wear size S.
Any of these would make great additions to kick up your activewear this season so that you can feel stylish, confident, and comfortable!
