We're saying it, activewear is an amazing holiday gift. Whether it's for the yogi, the runner, or the Pilates-obsessed person in your life, new activewear is just as functional as it is fun. It’s also an amazing holiday gift to give to ourselves since it motivates us and reminds us to focus a little bit more on our health and wellness in the midst of a stress-inducing and sugar-filled holiday season.
This year, we know which buzzy and affordable activewear line we'll be looking to for tons of gift-able options: JoyLab. The brand, which we created and co-designed with Target, just dropped its newest collection as of yesterday. It's full of on-trend colors and designs that are all priced under $50. (You could say that we’re partial, but we're kind of obsessed). Keep scrolling to see a select few of our favorite pieces from JoyLab's brand-new holiday collection!
The collection features all activewear essentials: sports bras (that are actually supportive mind you), leggings, short-sleeve and long-sleeve tops, plus jackets and tanks. Each piece is comfortable and easy to throw on before heading out the door since we have a strong dislike for fussy fabrics and designs that require thought and effort to style. Activewear should be easy, right?
Aside from fit and functionality, appearance is key. We want to work out in clothing that we actually like. After all, that makes us feel good, and when we feel good, we want to keep working out (it's all connected, people!). That's why the colors range from bright to subtle and come available in both solids and prints. In other words, there's something for everyone's workout sensibility, whether you're all about paired-back neutrals like Kim Kardashian West or energizing pops of color.
The entire holiday collection is available in-store and online at Target. So go forth and shop. If you need some suggestions, see a few of our favorite holiday collection pieces.
Aside from the tropical leaf print, our favorite detail on this sports bra is the cooling keyhole cut-out on the back. (Pair this with the matching leggings for a super-cute and cohesive outfit.)
Pull this cut-out sweatshirt on before and after a workout to keep warm pre- and post-sweat.
This side-tie tank top is the perfect layering piece over a printed sports bra and a pair of sleek leggings.
It wouldn't be a holiday collection without a graphic tank or two. We love the simple, positive message on this one.
This design works for all seasons. In the winter it looks like patterns of ice. In the summer it looks like ocean waves and tropical leaves.
Here is the tank top we'll be wearing on repeat to all of our fave workouts—boxing, running, cycling, and yoga included.
These tile print leggings are super easy to match, thanks to the lilac, gray, and black tones that are included. Plus, how cute are the striped sides?
