The weather’s getting warm and the world is opening up again. Needless to say, if you’re itching for your next adventure, you’re not alone; plenty of us could do with a refreshing hiking trip, a resort getaway or a travel vacation to a beachside town. Luckily, Athleta has everything you need to adventure in comfort and style.
While this brand focuses on athletic fashion, it’s so much more than just another clothing company. Athleta is a team of “athletes, designers and innovators of all shapes and sizes,” and this inclusivity and community definitely extend to its clothing selection. The sizes aim to fit every body, the fabrics are often made from recycled materials for sustainability and The Power of She Fund offers grants that support women and girls everywhere.
Gear up for your next adventure with these Athleta essentials.
Cabo Linen Wide Leg Pant ($79; athleta.gap.com)
Available in four gorgeous colors, these linen pants are perfect for your next vacation — but don’t be surprised if you never want to take them off. According to reviewers, they’re “super comfortable,” thanks to their elastic drawstring waist and airy linen fabric, yet they’re easy to “dress up or down” whether you’re going to dinner or lounging by the pool. Finally, the zippered pockets keep your stuff secure while you’re on the go.
Longline Plunge Bikini Top ($54; athleta.gap.com)
Get ready for summer with Athleta’s swimwear collection. Styles offer a huge range of different coverage options, from bikinis to one-pieces, but reviewers especially love this longline plunge top. The recycled fabric is stretchy, durable and sun-protective, while the power-mesh lining and adjustable back keep you supported. Pair it with these Palm Swim boyshorts to complete the look.
Athleta x Alicia Keys
Keys Maxi Robe ($179; athleta.gap.com)
Athleta partnered with Alicia Keys to create colorful, comfortable pieces that you can wear out into the world — and this maxi robe is a must. The fabric is buttery soft, lightweight and layerable, so it feels like you’re wearing your favorite pajamas; that said, the dropped shoulders and sophisticated drape pull any outfit together.
Keys Aurora Bodysuit ($69; athleta.gap.com)
Also co-created with Alicia Keys, this bodysuit pairs beautifully with any jeans, slacks or skirts in your wardrobe. The wide straps and plunge V-neck are undeniably stylish, but the fabric is stretchy and chafe-resistant for all-day comfort. Best of all, it never comes untucked!
Vienna Cargo Skort ($69; athleta.gap.com)
This collection works just as well for close-to-home hikes as it does for exploring international cities, and the Vienna Cargo Skort is a fan favorite for a reason: “I absolutely love this skirt for traveling. Looks great and can be worn anywhere. Well made and stylish.” In addition to the recycled, stretchy fabric, buyers also love the built-in shorts for coverage and the easy-access pockets for functionality.
