Activewear Essentials from Vuori

January 20, 2022

Thank you to Vuori and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post.

We talk about “wardrobe staples” around here a lot. It’s a word that gets thrown around daily and it’s code for “pieces worth investing in because you will wear the heck out of them”. Blazers, denim jackets, cozy cardigans are a few of these pieces that come to mind. I love that activewear is now also a part of this conversation. Think about what you wear almost every single day. If leggings, joggers, hoodies, come to top of mind, these are pieces worth a bit of research. Good news, I’ve done the research for you. Vuori is an activewear brand that not only looks good and feels good, but it is also ethically and sustainably made, washes well AND wears well. I’m all about cost per wear analysis and if wearing all day, sleeping in it, and wearing it the to the bus the next day doesn’t speak to the amazingness of this brand, then I don’t know what will.

If you know Vuori, you likely started with their Performance Joggers. You may even have them in several colors and slowly started dabbling in some of their other products. This is my story too. I now have a collection of the Clean Elevation Leggings that have a high-rise fit and suede-like feel to the touch. They are made from recycled materials and are perfect for an on-the-go lifestyle or your favorite studio class.

You know that story, “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”, well you then you know where this is going. If you try the Clean Elevation Leggings you are going to want The Halo Essential Hoodie to match. Matching sets are a thing these days. They are an instant outfit that make you feel sporty and pulled together with minimal effort. The Halo Hoodie is made from their famous DreamKnit fabric (it really is a dream to touch) and it has a slightly cropped fit that works perfect with any of their leggings. If you have the Halo Hoodie, you may want an extra layer for those super cold days so you start to consider the Restore Half Zip. She’s real cute. She looks great with your Vuori pieces and with your favorite pair of denim, too.

Shop my look:

*wearing XS in all for reference (size up in leggings if between)

You add in a hat to complete the look and then it happens…. and this is the part that blew my mind. Your kid leans over your shoulder and says, “Mom, you know that brand that you and Dad wear? Could I get something from there too?”

Mic drop.

You…want to dress like me?! Have all of my dreams of dressing my kids like me finally come true?!

I think they just did.

My oldest son is another mouse in this story. He started with the joggers, then tried the tees, and now is very into this jacket. I asked him what it is about Vuori that he likes so much and here is what he had to say. Well, let me preface this by saying I told him I would let him order DoorDash if he wrote something for me and within 10 minutes he texted me this:

“I love Vuori because all of their clothing is so comfortable and has a great look to it. You would think it may be embarrassing to wear the same brand as your parents, but this brand is an exception. The clothes are great for school and also if you are just hanging around with your friends. Some of my favorite clothing from Vuori are they grey or the blue joggers, the hats and I also love the jackets. Also the quality of the fabric is amazing, feels good and light on your skin. Vuori is better then lots of other brands because there are so many different options for different types of experiences. I pretty much wear a pair of Vuori joggers every day. People that I know are also hopping on the Vuori train and they are all loving it.”

And there you have it. He loves it enough to walk down the street twinning with his mama to boot.

Shop his outfit:

*for reference: he is 5’7″, weighs 140lbs and is wearing size medium

And if that’s not a face asking for $20 and a ride to meet up with his friends then I don’t know what is.

Nope. But how about a piggy back ride home, kid?

    I loved the concept of Dream knit fabric… so soft to touch…which comes with a style…The best part that I felt was that the collection looks good, feels good and is ethically made and is sustainable. I too am a fitness freak… over the years I was very conscious about my physical health and the food which I eat and I never gave importance to mental health. Though now I feel mental health is more important and of course if clothing makes you feel good that is a part of it.
