Shopping For: Stylish Sportswear

Marking the end of summer every year here in NYC, the annual U.S. Open tournament takes over one of our bustling borough’s bringing with it fierce competition and inspiring, uber cool athletic-wear. In fact, most recently sportswear has shot to the forefront of our attention with amazing fashion-forward options that are a far cry from the tear-away sweatpants and cotton tee’s of yester-year. Sure, some of our usual favorites like Monreal London and L’Etoile Sport always have amazing go-to options, especially when it comes to tennis gear, but there are plenty of amazing brands to choose from. From the well-known, like Adidas by Stella McCartney, Nike and Y-3 to those you may not have heard of before like Ultracor, Alo Yoga, Bodyism, No Ka’oi and Espalier Sport – and while some pieces may appear to be all flash and no function, they’re all made from high-performance fabrics so you know you’re getting the most out of your workout gear. With a large range of style (from sporty to sexy) and price points throughout, there’s a little something for everyone to pick from.
