We're talking about athleisure, the gym-to-day (and sometimes night!) lines that are taking over retail. Seriously, everyone loves a comfortable pair of leggings, but add a chic sweater to throw over them that wicks away sweat and keeps you looking presentable at brunch? Talk about a win-win. But if you're still feeling trepidation about, say, wearing heels with your sweatpants, allow Tory Burch to warm you up to the look with her new Tory Sport line. Leave it to Burch to create whisper-thin leggings and totally opaque styles with with four-way stretch; colorful rash guards that we plan to wear on the beach and then on a date with jeans and heels; and airy cashmere sweaters with cooling qualities. So good.
We had the chance to chat with Tory, who picked her favorites from the collection:
Chevron Leggings, $125
“Our Chevron leggings are engineered with a fine yarn knitted in an interlock structure to create a dense fabric that is super opaque, quick drying and extremely lightweight. The zipper pocket at the waist fits an iPhone or iPod so you can easily listen to music while working out.”
Sleeveless Tunic Dress, $225
“Our tunic dress balances real function with incredible style. It has a soft, brushed feel on the inside but the piqué structure gives it breathability and a cool, vintage vibe.”
Performance Cashmere Crewneck Sweater, $285
“We updated the vintage ski sweater with a beautiful blend of cashmere and Coolmax, a performance fiber with a unique, cooling feel. It is incredibly soft, lightweight and breathable.”
Block-Striped Rashguard, $195
“Our Block-Striped Rashguard is designed with Sensitive fabric, which is quick-drying with SPF 50 sun protection—perfect for a day at the beach swimming and paddleboarding with my boys. The material takes color really well—the hues are so vibrant.”
Color-Block Track Suit. Jacket, $165; pants, $135
“Our track suit is nostalgic and modern, sporty, and chic. The fabric is cotton on the inside, which is super soft against the skin, and the outside has subtle shine. It references the seventies but feels fresh at the same time.”
White Tennis Tote, $395
“I play tennis every week and am always looking for a stylish bag that can fit all my gear. Our tote is spacious with separate compartments for your racquet and shoes—and it looks great.”
