lululemon Style Summer 2020

How to Style Athleisure: A Weekend of Outfits in lululemon

TGIF, am I right?!

As we transition from all-day pajamas during quarantine to having to put together outfits and had back into the real world, the struggle can be real. [Is anyone else seriously dreading putting on a pair of jeans after all those SIP snacks??]

Why not keep some of that comfort we’ve all grown accustomed to in our wardrobes?

I’ve put together 9 functional + fashionable outfits to take you from your workouts to the office to date night wearing only athleisure from lululemon.

Friday

Workout: Peloton | SoulCycle | Spin

  • Energy Bra Long Line | Designed to provide medium support for B-D cups, I think this is the most universal bra lululemon makes. I’ve had A/B/C/D/DD ladies wear this bra and love it, so it’s definitely worth a try no matter what your cup size. As for determining which size to order, the numbered sizing corresponds to band sizes (4=32, 6=34, 8=36, etc.). Larger cups may need to size up in the numbered size to balance coverage/support needs.
  • Breeze By Muscle Crop Tank | Strategically-placed mesh guarantees this tank offers optimal breathability and ventilation. The cropped length pairs perfectly with high-rise shorts/leggings.
  • Fast And Free Short 10″ | Although I prefer the 6″ version of the Align Shorts, I like the extra 4″ on these when I’m on the bike. I have a pair of the 6″ F&Fs, but I’ve found the bottom seam hits my leg at the same spot the bike seat hits my leg and can be irritating during my ride. The 10″ pair takes this problem out of the equation in two ways: (1) they’re longer obviously and (2) the bottom hem is laser cut so there’s so stitch to hit on anything.
  • Uplifting Scrunchie | Aside from the practical use of tying my hair back, I love using a scrunchie as a small pop of color when wearing a lot of neutrals – which, for me, is basically everyday.
  • Purist Cycling Water Bottle 26 oz | Although lululemon has newer water bottle styles, I prefer the simplicity of this design. It fits perfectly in the bottle holder on my bike and in my gym bag, and the no-fuss lid means I don’t have to fumble with unscrewing or flipping anything mid-workout.

Work: Office Casual

  • Like Nothing Bra | This bra is a steal at only $19! Minimal seams, hardware and layers make for a naked-in-a-good-way sensation with even support and a natural shape. Over time, the sweat-wicking fabric molds to your body for a personalized fit. Just don’t wear it for workouts; as the name implies, it’ll feel like wearing nothing and isn’t intended to provide support during your workouts.
  • Love Crew | These soft Pima cotton tees are the ultimate basic, but lux basic. I have a ton of these (and the tank and v-neck versions) in my closet and wear them with leggings, shorts and jeans.
  • Find Your Calm Wrap | Does anyone else’s significant other make sure you have a jacket or sweater before leaving the house with you bc he knows you’ll inevitably get cold and complain about it?? I always have a spare long sleeve layer in my bag and in my car, just in case.
  • Keep Moving Pant High-Rise | Make your post-quarantine transition from work-from-home to office easier with these high-rise cousins of the OTF Pants. The super stretchy Luxtreme fabric is breathable and moisture-wicking, so you’ll feel like you’re wearing loungewear but you’ll look office-ready.
  • Namastay Put Hipster | Say adios to panty lines with these miracle hipsters. Thanks to free cut hems at the legs, you can wear these full coverage undies under leggings, tight dresses, etc with no VPLs in sight.
  • Now and Always Tote *25L | The Now and Always line was inspired by the iconic lululemon shopper and comes in a few different sizes. The largest tote is a perfect work companion with a padded laptop pocket, an interior pocket to help organize essentials and a water bottle pocket so you always have hydration at hand.

Happy Hour

  • Align Tank | If you can snag one of these, consider yourself lucky. Made of buttery-soft Nulu fabric, this tank is ultra comfy yet oh-so-flattering. The built-in bra and v-neckline give your bust a boost, so consider sizing up if that’s not what you’re looking for.
  • Exaltation Wrap | This reversible wrap is on markdown and comes in three color combos. Soft Merino Wool is naturally thermoregulating, making it the perfect companion for fluctuating temperatures.
  • Take The Moment Pant | Part of the Robert Geller collaboration, these water- and wrinkle-resistant trousers expertly combine fashion and utility. And they’re on markdown! 
  • Now and Always Tote *Micro | The Now and Always line was inspired by the iconic lululemon shopper and comes in a few different sizes. The *Micro is the smallest of the line and is just so darn cute. Carry it as-is or convert it to a crossbody with the removable shoulder strap.
  • Basic Balm | This no-shine, non-sticky formula leaves you with a natural look and feel, while rich butters and natural oils hydrate and protect.
  • Made By Yoke Kapha Aromatherapy Oil | Use this invigorating ayurvedic oil blend to balance and decongest oily skin.


Saturday

Workout: CrossFit | HIIT

  • Sculpt Tank *Cropped | The Sculpt Tank is the newest core style to get a cropped revamp (the CRB and Swiftly Racerback both came out in cropped lengths earlier this year: CRB *Shorter is currently sold out; Swiftly Tech Racerback 2.0 *Race Length).
  • Invigorate Bra | Designed to provide medium support for B/C cups. As for determining which size to order, the numbered sizing corresponds to band sizes (4=32, 6=34, 8=36, etc.). Larger cups may need to size up in the numbered size to balance coverage/support needs.
  • Wunder Train High-Rise Tight 25″ | A new release in 2019, the WT has quickly jumped to the top of many women’s favorite leggings list. I consider these a great compromise between the Aligns and the Wunder Unders. Everlux fabric is softer than the WU’s Luon, yet super quick drying and sturdier than the Align’s Nulu.
  • Uplifting Scrunchie *Bow | Aside from the practical use of tying my hair back, I love using a scrunchie as a small pop of color when wearing a lot of neutrals – which, for me, is basically everyday.
  • Speed Tab Sock *Silver | There’s nothing worse than your sock sliding down into your shoe during a workout. Ok, maybe there are worse things, but that sock thing is really annoying. Say goodbye to ‘slippery sock syndrome’ thanks to these breathable mesh construction socks with arch support and seamless toe construction.
  • Dash All Day Duffel *20L | This duffel has room (and pockets) for all your gym bag essentials. Customize your carry with adjustable handles and a removable shoulder strap. Plus, the water-repellent fabric is easy to wipe clean in case of protein shake spills.
  • Stay Hot Keep Cold Bottle *19oz | Keep water cold for 24 hours and hot for 9 hours in this double-walled stainless steel bottle.

Lunch + Day Drinks

  • Full Day Ahead Tank | The curved bottom hem makes this fitted tank easy to tuck in. It’s soft, naturally breathable and stretchy.
  • Free To Be Serene Bra | Designed to provide light support for C/D cups. As for determining which size to order, the numbered sizing corresponds to band sizes (4=32, 6=34, 8=36, etc.). Larger cups may need to size up in the numbered size to balance coverage/support needs.
  • Hooded Define Jacket | If you love Nulu as much as I do, then this updated take on the classic Define Jacket is for you! Same tight-to-body fit of the regular Define, but with an added hood and the next-to-nothing feel of your fav Aligns. If you don’t like a tight fit, size up for a roomier feel.
  • Inner Glow Short 3″ | To say I’m obsessed with these super soft shorts is an understatement. The high-rise and relaxed fit make them perfect for crop tops or tucked in tanks. Word of warning though, they are short, so if you’re looking for length, these may not be the short for you.
  • Everywhere Belt Bag *1L | So much convenience wrapped up in this small little package. Big enough to carry all your essentials – cards, cash, lip balm, phone, keys – in a hands-free design so you can focus on the fun instead of where you put your bag.
  • You Hold The Keychain | Never dig for your keys again; clip this keychain to your bag, wallet or belt loop for easy access.
  • Uplifting Scrunchie | Aside from the practical use of tying my hair back, I love using a scrunchie as a small pop of color when wearing a lot of neutrals – which, for me, is basically everyday.

Date Night

  • All Aligned A-line Dress | Ace the effortless chic look with this relaxed-fit LBD. The a-line cut is flattering on lots of different body types, and the fabric is … drumroll please … the same as your fav Align Pants.
  • City Stroll Coat | Take this lightweight water-repellent coat along for the ride just in case of summer showers. Or, tuck in the stowable hood and use it as a light layer on chilly nights.
  • Free To Be Bra High Neck | Designed to provide light support for A/B cups. As for determining which size to order, the numbered sizing corresponds to band sizes (4=32, 6=34, 8=36, etc.). Larger cups may need to size up in the numbered size to balance coverage/support needs.
  • Mula Bandhawear Thong *Lace | If you think a thong can’t be comfortable, you haven’t tried a Mula Bandhawear Thong yet. The waistband is soft, lays flat without digging in and stays in place.
  • Now and Always Pouch | I have the Double Up Pouch (not currently available) that I use as an everyday wallet, but this is def an upgraded version – with real leather!
  • Glow On Hair Ties | I get asked all the time if the metal lululemon piece on these ponytail holders gets tangled in my hair, and the answer is a resounding no. I have long, thick wavy hair and I have never had a problem with these ties getting stuck or tangled in my hair, so rest easy on that point.


Sunday

Morning-After Brunch

  • Esker Cropped Tank *lululemon lab | Although actually designed for training, this flowy cropped tank doubles as casual wear. Naturally breathable linen-blend fabric is treated with No-Stink Zinc™ to stop the growth of odour-causing bacteria.
  • Flow Y Bra | Designed to provide light support for B/C cups. As for determining which size to order, the numbered sizing corresponds to band sizes (4=32, 6=34, 8=36, etc.). Larger cups may need to size up in the numbered size to balance coverage/support needs.
  • All Yours Zip Hoodie *Bubble Dot | Layer this lightweight sweatshirt over summer outfits when you need a little extra warmth.
  • Align Pant 25″ | Designed to feel like you aren’t wearing anything, these are the most comfortable pants you will ever put on your body.
  • Purist Team Bottle 32 oz | Although lululemon has newer water bottle styles, I prefer the simplicity of this design. The no-fuss lid means I don’t have to fumble with unscrewing or flipping anything and the large 32oz capacity is perfect for the mornings I need a little extra hydration.
  • Uplifting Scrunchie | Aside from the practical use of tying my hair back, I love using a scrunchie as a small pop of color when wearing a lot of neutrals – which, for me, is basically everyday.

Lazy Afternoon at Home

  • All Yours Boyfriend Tee | One of my favorite things to wear at home is a big, oversized t-shirt. Before lululemon started making soft cotton tees for women, I resorted to buying XL 5 Year Basics; those days are a thing of the past thanks to these four-way stretch, relaxed fit tees.
  • Flow Y Bra Long Line | Designed to provide light support for B/C cups. As for determining which size to order, the numbered sizing corresponds to band sizes (4=32, 6=34, 8=36, etc.). Larger cups may need to size up in the numbered size to balance coverage/support needs.
  • Perfectly Oversized Crew | Want to rock the bike short trend, but a little nervous about showing off too much? This oversized sweatshirt provides just the right amount of extra bum coverage. Also, I’m dying over this white camo print.
  • Align Short 6″ | I’ve been living in these comfy Nulu shorts during quarantine and, even though I’m venturing back out into the world, I honestly don’t see that trend changing anytime soon. I have 6 pairs and I still have to wash them all every week. I’m 5’4″ and the 6″ length is perfect on me, but they do also come in 4″, 8″ and 10″ inseams.
  • Light Locks Scrunchie II | Aside from the practical use of tying my hair back, I love using a scrunchie as a small pop of color when wearing a lot of neutrals – which, for me, is basically everyday.
  • Skyn Iceland Brightening Face Mask + Firming Eye Gel 4-Pack | Recharge for the week ahead with a refreshing face mask and a good old fashioned Netflix binge.

Workout: Yoga Nidra | Meditation

  • Aligned Angles Long Sleeve | Buttery-soft Nulu makes this long sleeve more than just another trendy crop top. Designed to feel next-to-nothing against the skin, this fabric is the perfect choice for a distraction-free practice.
  • Align Jogger 28″ | You can’t go wrong with head-to-toe Nulu. These high-rise joggers have a relaxed fit and plenty of stretch to move with you through any pose.
  • Tale To Tell Crew Sock *2 Pack | Snug arch support and tall length provide extra warmth and support so you can focus on the task at hand.
  • Here for Serenity Wrap | Make this wrap pull double duty by using it as a sweater during the day and a blanket for relaxing sessions at night. And at only $49, it’s a bargain!
  • Carry Onwards Mat *Travel | Although intended as a travel mat, layer this soft mat over your regular yoga mat for a warmer, more lux feeling during relaxing yoga sessions or meditations.
  • The Reversible Mat 3mm | Designed as the perfect all-around mat, this reversible mat provides cushion and comfort during restorative sessions and no-slip technical features during sweatier sessions.
  • Skinny Scrunchie *6 Pack | Aside from the practical use of tying my hair back, I love using a scrunchie as a small pop of color when wearing a lot of neutrals – which, for me, is basically everyday.
  • Made By Yoke Vata Aromatherapy Oil | Use this restoring ayurvedic oil blend to warm, soothe and moisturize dry skin.
