Activewear Is a Spring Staple: Here’s Exactly What to Buy the Whole Fam from Old Navy

Whether you live in warm weather year-round or you’re finally breaking free of winter’s icy clutches (okay, dramatic, but you’ve got to admit it kind of feels that way), there’s something extra special about spring. If it’s not the flowers and the alfresco dining, it’s most certainly the fact that it’s a season made for getting active with your family. And Old Navy has just the right pieces to inspire you. To get the scoop on all things spring at Old Navy, we spoke to Kelle Hampton—Floridian, writer and mom—about exactly what to buy this season.

For The Kids

“I love any store where I can shop for every member of our family. I have three kids with unique styles, and they all can find on-trend things they love at Old Navy,” explains Kelle.

“Fortunately, we live in a climate that has beautiful weather all year round, and springtime is the peak time to be outside before it gets too hot. We visit our parks a lot in the spring—especially on weekends—biking the trails or taking long walks or runs early in the morning.”

“I’m loving the high-waisted StretchTech shorts for the kids,” she reveals. “We also spend a lot of time by a lake up north in the summer and these shorts will be great for lake life later on—stretchy, quick-drying and can be easily pulled up over a bathing suit.” With breathable fabric that incorporates UV sun protection and an interior drawstring for the perfect fit, it’s no wonder these are at the top of Kelle’s list. Pair it with the matching pullover for a ready-for-anything set.

For Herself

“I love the Old Navy high-waisted PowerSoft leggings. They’re super comfy and a great breathable fabric. And they’re easy to pack in a suitcase or duffel bag for travel,” says Kelle. The light compression fabric with a peachy-soft feel has a four-way stretch and moisture-wicking technology, meaning all-day comfort no matter how you move.

“Our family acquired a lot of home gym equipment in the beginning of the pandemic, so we also will do fun home workouts and crank some good workout tunes while we take turns picking exercises that everyone has to do together,” Kelle shares.

To stay motivated as a busy mom, Kelle has a few tricks up her sleeve: “I often listen to audiobooks when I work out, so committing to a workout comes with returning to a good story. I also pay myself $5 for every 30-minute workout/run I complete, and I save that money to spend toward new activewear or sneakers.”
