The New Carbon38 Spring Collection Is Workleisure at Its Best
The activewear retailer has designed their first full non-workout wear collection, and we're here for it.
Here's the truth about activewear: It's made us spoiled. Your yoga pants, leggings, sports bras, and sneakers are likely softer, easier to move in, and less restricting than other pieces in your closet. And once you get used to that level of comfy, it's hard to go back to regular clothes. Plus, there's nothing worse than wriggling into stiff workwear after your early AM sweat session. That's why we love workleisure-clothes made from fitness-friendly fabrics that still look totally professional.
One of the pioneers of this trend is activewear retailer Carbon38. While past collections have incorporated pieces that could totally work at the office, their brand new spring collection is all specially made for wear outside the gym. Each piece is super-comfortable thanks to stretchy, technical fabrics, yet totally chic-making it ideal for your life outside the gym.

The all-black and white 60's and 70's-inspired collection will mix seamlessly with your work basics, making getting dressed in the morning *that* much easier, even if you have just a few minutes in the locker room. Bonus: Some items can transition easily from day to nighttime plans, like the cropped wrap Park top ($145), shown above.
The best part of this collection? Everything is made with technical fabrics that move with you throughout the day. That means that the Jones dress (above, $175), is likely to become your favorite work outfit in no time flat.
We can only hope more of our favorite activewear brands start taking over our non-gym wardrobes.
