This Selena Gomez-Approved Brand Just Launched an Activewear Collection Designed for Every Kind of Workout
Up until this point, Gauge81 has been known for minimalist going-out attire worn by celebrities such as Katy Perry, Emily Ratajkowski, Dakota Johnson, and Selena Gomez. But now, don't be surprised if you see the Latinx-owned brand all over your next workout class. From compression leggings to functional bodysuits, Gauge81 is redefining what it means to exercise in style.
"We want to stand for health and fitness and connect with our customers during one of the most important times of their day: self care," Colombian-born Gauge81 founder and designer Monika Silva said in a press release for the brand's new activewear collection. It consists of 13 breathable and sweat-wicking pieces, each constructed from compressive athletic-grade knitted fabrics (such as 100 percent organic cotton, recycled polyester, and organic yarns) that meet global organic textile standards. They're ready to move with you no matter the type of workout you're taking on, from Pilates to high-intensity interval training. (Related: 11 Sustainable Activewear Brands Worth Breaking a Sweat In)
And if working out isn't on your to-do list for the day, don't count these out from your everyday wardrobe. "All our pieces were designed with versatility in mind," Silva said. "This expansion is something I am very excited about because it adds extra depth to the brand and really seems like a natural extension for us."
Made from polyamide and elastane, the Victoria Jumpsuit will hug you in all the right places. A notable feature is the crisscross back, which provides extra support for the chest.
This sleek crop top can pull double-duty in your closest. Despite the long sleeves, it's breathable thanks to mesh construction.
The Marden Legging takes a different spin on your classic black pair with three-piece paneling for an edgy look. They're ready to take on all kinds of workouts (and hangouts).
Edson Hoodie Sweatshirt
Sweats are a year-round must-have, which practically makes the Edson Hoodie Sweatshirt a necessity. Made out of cotton, polyester, and elastane, this sweatshirt has a two-way front-zip closure for function and visual interest.
Constructed out of midweight jersey fabric with an elastic waistband, the Burnaby Pants have a loose silhouette that's popular these days.They're equipped with side pockets, so your keys and phone have a home when you're out and about that isn't your hands.
Black & Blue Bolton Bodysuit
Who doesn't love a form-fitting and stretchy bodysuit? This throw-on-and-go style has a high neck, crisscross straps in the back, and flattering stitching details throughout.
Blue & Beige Bolton Bodysuit
If you're looking to try the Bolton in a bolder color, give this blue hue a try.
Don't want to commit to a one-piece? The Delta Top is similar to the Bolton, just without the attached shorts. It's made out of nylon-blend jersey to keep sweat at bay, and the cropped fit will pair well with high-waisted leggings. The cutout at the back is a nice detail.
The high-waisted Regina Leggings sit above the belly button and promise never to slide down. Like the Delta Top, they're made from a stretchy nylon blend that offers compression and breathability.
The Calgary Shorts are basically the Regina Leggings, but cropped, so hold on to them for spring and summer.
