Hike, Sweat Sesh or Coffee Date? UNIQLO Activewear Works Everywhere
You know UNIQLO for its classic, clean-cut wardrobe staples, but the brand’s versatile activewear may be your new go-to for sporty fashion that’s functional, too.
Your schedule is packed ‘round the clock, but you stay active no matter what your day holds. Sound familiar? If you try hard to squeeze in a morning hike, lunch-time workout or evening yoga session amidst work, grocery shopping and coffee dates, UNIQLO’s sleek activewear can take you through the day in comfort and minimalist style. Try one or more of these eight athletic pieces and fall in love.
Wear it: For your spin sesh
Keep it: To grab a smoothie
You love spinning because it works up a major sweat, but that means you need moisture-friendly pieces that can be washed again and again. Your new go-to? The AIRism Bra Sleeveless Top, which features moisture-wicking DRY technology, heat release and Cool Touch—not to mention anti-microbial and anti-odour properties so you never have to worry about stinking up your gym bag. Add AIRism Soft Leggings, made from breathable material perfect for going from your spin class and onto the rest of your day.
Wear it: On a morning hike
Keep it: To walk the dog
Breathable comfort minus rough seams is key whether you’re walking the dog or taking a more strenuous trek. Try UNIQLO’s Drape Crew Neck Short Sleeve T-shirt, which is lightweight and made from a soft rayon-blend material in a flattering cut. Add Extra Stretch Active pants (also made with DRY-EX technology, plus waist panels to help your joggers stay put no matter how you move) and a high-performance hoodie and you’ll be ready to tackle cool morning air—on the trail or the sidewalk.
Wear it: While you throw punches
Keep it: For the farmer’s market
When it comes to throwing jabs, crosses and hooks at your local boxing class, clothing that moves with you is an absolute necessity. Keep things simple with a stretchy, durable AIRism Bra Sleeveless Top whose adjusted neckline won’t ride up while you’re hitting the bag, then pair it with AIRism Soft Leggings that have Cool Touch fabric, quick-drying DRY technology and a high waist to keep everything in place as you jump, duck and punch. You’ll look cool as a cucumber whether fighting through class or shopping for actual cucumbers.
Wear it: To shoot hoops
Keep it: For a weekend BBQ
The comfy, casual style of UNIQLO’s activewear line isn’t only for women. If your man is looking for pieces that he can wear whether he’s playing a round on the court or lounging around at home, he’ll love DRY-EX fabric technology that dries quickly and has anti-odour properties. The DRY-EX Crew Neck Short Sleeve T-Shirt and Dry-EX Short are both winners, as they offer extra stretch, mesh panels for increased breathability, as well as fewer seams for a smooth feel and clean drape. For extra warmth, he can toss on the sporty-casual DRY Stretch Sweat Full-Zip Hoodie, which is designed for easy movement.
