Workout gear with a conscience
Here in SoCal, we?ve pretty much revolutionized street style with our way of dressing for yoga class, then donning a cute cover-up, adding a few accessories and looking nonchalantly cool the rest of the day.
So when exercise clothes don?t measure up, we?re really let down. That?s why we?re happy to hear about hometown label SOLOW, which has pioneered a clothes-making process in which both the environment and the garment workers are well-treated.
You can tell a piece is responsibly manufactured by looking for the Bluesign label, which you?ll be seeing everywhere soon. (Nike just signed on, for example.) SOLOW already has a collection of Bluesign-certified threads in Nordstrom stores.
Okay, green is great--but how do these outfits make our butt look?
In a word, fantastic. The Moto Crop Drawcord Leggings ($84) for spinning and full-length running leggings ($95) have neat-looking, slimming stitching across the thighs and knees. The super-original design of the One Shoulder Mesh Tank ($84) is both sporty and elegant. And the Tucked Raglan Sleeve Jacket ($101) slightly broadens our shoulders, which evens out our silhouette when tossed on over our slim-fitting workout gear.
Who?s to know if you skipped the gym and just hit Montana Avenue clad in a new SOLOW outfit?
