Outdoor Voices



I’ve recently felt as if I were in a ‘gym rut’ so I started to search online for some cool new athleisure. When you look good, you feel good, am I right?! It didn’t take me long to discover 5 new favorite brands that will help me escape the monotony of my wardrobe. Here is #1.

Outdoor Voices

Outdoor Voices (OV) was founded in 2012 in NYC and has brick and mortar stores in over 5 cities, which unfortunately excludes Chicago (insert sad face). The whole idea behind OV is that you don’t have to be an Olympic athlete to buy durable/high-end athleisure; their whole mantra is just to be happy, have fun while exercising, and have some cool breathable threads to do so. How relatable is that?? I love the vibe the OV site has; it has cool muted colors with no crazy patterns which makes it a very ‘livable’ brand. The material is super high quality and comfortable, the founder spent a year picking out the perfect fabric! They also offer regular and plus size, which allows the brand to touch woman of all sizes.

Real talk

These leggings are squat proof (ie: not see through), sweat proof (ie: won’t look like you peed in your pants during class!), and slip proof (ie: you don’t have to hold them up while running). Don’t be afraid of trying a color besides black, go for it and try the light gray! While you’re at it, try a matching set. They offer a discount on matching leggings and sports bra sets through their ‘OV Energy packs’, which I may or may not have just added to my shopping cart… If you don’t believe me, check out the hundreds of customer reviews they have on their site, they have a very loyal following. Best of all, the price point won’t break the bank and with free shipping and free returns, there’s no reason not to try a few pieces out! I promise you will be a satisfied customer.
