Casual style, loungewear, and athleisure are definitely having their moment. But don’t let the name fool you: casual style isn’t just for wearing around the house.

You can be casual and stylish, and one of our favorite ways to do that is athleisure (aka activewear). Athleisure is cool and comfortable, and it might just be the confidence boost you need to be more productive while you’re working at home.

Looking for some athleisure inspiration? We’ve got you covered with options from our favorite sustainable brands. Here’s our top 5 athleisure staples to up your quarantine style.


T-shirts are easy and comfortable basics for an athleisure wardrobe. These tees offer a wide range in price allowing you to make the choice that works best for your wallet.

If you’re looking for tees check our shop for a selection of women’s t-shirts, men’s t-shirts, and unisex tees!


Sweatpants have long been a favorite comfy clothing choice. While they may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about style, they have quickly become a central part of the athleisure look.

Any of these 3 options by Colorful Standard, Outerknown, or Kotn would pair nicely with a casual tee and a pair of sneakers. But don’t limit your style, joggers have become a lot more elevated and are no longer just for wearing around the house. Also check out tentree.


Hoodies are the perfect layering piece for chilly evenings or offices with ice cold A/C. They can also really tie together your whole athleisure outfit.

If you’re looking for a pullover option, check out the KOTN or the Outerknown hoodie. If you’re looking for a lightweight zip-up, Pact is a great choice.


A good pair of sneakers are always an important wardrobe piece to have. While sneakers are essential for errands, strolls, and casual trips outside the house, they have also worked their way into high fashion.

Comfort is a pleasing aesthetic. All three of these options by 8000Kicks, Thousand Fell, and Koio, respectively, have been certified by Eco-Stylist as eco-friendly and fair to workers. Check our shop for more sneakers!


Chilly? Sun in your face? Having a bad hair day? Hats are the solution to all of these problems.

Hats also add a little something extra to push your outfit to the next level. These 3 hats from Topiku, Colorful Standard, and Patagonia are the perfect option to complete your athleisure look.
