Athleisure wear has been around for quite a while now. That said, experts predict that the demand for such hybrid clothing will rise even higher in popularity as the lines between work and leisure continue to blur due to the pandemic. Looking for fresh, fitness-ready pieces that’ll accompany you from your home office to your daily errand runs? Here are five new exciting athleisure launches that you should add to cart now. 

Sweaty Betty Blue Floral Splash Print Circuit Zip-Up Sports Bra 


VS Collective Incredible Essential Leggingss

USD68

Halle Berry-approved British activewear brand Sweaty Betty recently arrived on Singapore shores with the opening of its first flagship store at ION Orchard. Apart from their famous, bum-sculpting leggings, the brand’s newly launched range of activewear pieces in a vibrant blue floral flash print is worth a spot in your athleisure wardrobe too.

Featured here is the Circuit Zip-Up Sports Bra, which is designed for medium-impact workouts. The bra’s crossover strappy back offers extra support, while its quick-drying fabric keeps you dry as you break a sweat and work on your reps.

Following the unveiling of its VS Collective in June 2021, Victoria’s Secret has launched its first collection titled “On Point: Live, Flow, Sweat.” The athleisure wear range offers pieces that cater to various lifestyle needs and fitness interests — from lace-up leggings made for low-impact activities like pilates and yoga to durable, four-way stretch sports bras for maximum support.

Our pick from the range goes to these pastel-printed Incredible Essential Leggings, which are available in three different lengths to cater to women of different heights. These nylon leggings are built with an internal power-mesh waistband for comfort as well. It’s received over 1,600 customers reviews online, with 84% of respondents recommending this item.

New York-based athleisure wear retailer Bandier has several brands under its belt, including WSLY, which offers designer loungewear and sweatsuits and Le Ore, a private label that’s made from sustainable materials and suitable for low-impact workouts. The retailer has also joined hands with fashion influencer Juliana Sarinara a.k.a. Sincerely Jules to launch four capsule collections this year, which will feature a mix of workout and wardrobe staples. We have our eyes on the Le Ore stretch sports bra, which is made from a recycled polyester blend with stretch. It features cool, cutout details at the back and pairs perfectly with the label’s stretch shorts.
