If you like to exercise (like me) but also like to wear yoga pants out to dinner with your friends (like me) then you MUST KNOW about Outdoor Voices. Started by Tyler Haney, a 27 year old graduate from the business school from Parsons of The New School, Outdoor Voices is a new take on the feminine (I say feminine, but they also make men’s wear!), athletic-leisure wear brand. She created the material first and then began to build out the pieces to take to market. J Crew featured OV in their stores in 2014, and I feel like since then they have gotten so much bigger. I AM IN LOVE.
As you can tell- I am part of this cult following that Outdoor Voices has garnered. The yoga pants are stretchy, form-fitting, but thick enough that I feel like you can’t see every crease of my body. I literally get comments every time I wear them to a work-out class. Doesn’t hurt that the pants have freakin’ cute color combos. I chickened out of keeping this crop top, but am now definitely considering trying it again. I have a bigger chest and don’t always feel comfy without a super supportive bra. HOWEVER, since doing yoga I feel like the ladies could be a little more free. So, I may try the crop top again because SO cute. I have collected three pairs of the pants, and am now about to venture into their top section…
Maybe my favorite part of their brand is the hashtag #DoingThings which is their motto. It’s a nice take on athletic wear also being your everyday wear. This is so relevant. My ideal outfit lately consists of trainers, OV pants and a loose tee slightly tucked in. Casual, stylish and freeeeeee! Get you some.
