Several years ago I didn’t even know what Zella activewear was. Now it’s one of my favorite lines. It’s an exclusive Nordstrom brand.
Zella pieces are fitted and stylish. They don’t look like typical “sweats” and are not just for the gym. I love wearing Zella on my days off. It is so comfortable, yet you can still look put together.
The jackets are fitted and don’t look boxy. I love the great seaming. You have some choices in fabrics. The jackets can be heavier and therefore warmer, the last photo shows a fabric that is very lightweight.
These are great jackets to wear to the gym OR out/about.
There are plenty of more casual choices for the gym. The Zella short sleeved tees are wonderful. They have ruched sides–yes you can even choose flattering pieces for the gym.
Then there are the pants which are my personal favorites of the the line. They are reversible which gives you a dull and a shiny side. This allows you to wear the leggings, for example, with a sweater or top and it won’t look like gym clothes.
The Booty Fit and Balance Fit are very similar. You will get a nice fitted leg with a “boot-cut” bottom. The Balance Fit is the style I wear. This is going to be similar to fitting in a nice pair of jeans. They will be fitted in the thighs and you will feel like they are too tight. But the slightly flared leg helps balance out the fitted thigh. The Booty Fit is a little more fitted than the Balance Fit. Overall, they are so much more flattering than the baggy sweats from days past that many of us still own AND wear.
Then there is the Soul Fit with a full leg from the thigh to the ankle. The capri looks pretty comfortable too although I haven’t tried them on.
Whether it’s Zella or another brand, be sure and keep your casual wardrobe up to date too. It’s Ok to look great walking into the gym or when you are running errands.
