Something we’ve learned over the course of this quarantine period: our clothes aren’t as practical as we thought they were. With our work time bleeding into our workout time bleeding into our personal time, we’re realizing that we don’t need all the clothes we thought we did–all we need are a few key items that can serve more than one purpose. That way, we can streamline our wardrobe, curb our consumption in the long run, and maximize the time we spend doing the things we want to do. The best part? Almost everything here is under $100, and absolutely everything is made with ethical and sustainable manufacturing practices.
Vuori Ripstop Climber Pants – $89
You can lounge in these pants, you can take a lunch meeting in these pants, you can hike in these pants, and you can scale up a rock wall in these pants. We’re sold.
Rhone’s clothes are the ultimate in function and versatility. Take this sweat-wicking polo shirt, which uses Rhone’s GoldFusion fabric technology to help minimize odor. So sweat all you want in that board meeting.
Everlane Performance Chino – $72
These chinos are sweat-wicking, quick-drying, and have a 4-way stretch, and best of all? No one would know.
Everlane Cotton Jumpsuit – $68
The perfect one-and-done outfit that’s comfortable enough for yoga and can even be chic enough for the office.
Beyond Yoga Your Line Duster – $132
This duster cardigan has a full row of buttons, so when you’re not throwing it on to run to the gym, you can button it up and wear it as a dress.
Outdoor Voices Exercise Dress – $100
If you think this is impractical, the featured user photos will encourage you to think again: you can even snowboard in this thing. Plus, the built-in shorts liner and cellphone pocket make this just as viable for hitting the bar (someday…) as it is for heading out for a hike.
