Old Navy’s New Activewear Is My Current Obsession
I'll be the first to admit it: I used to be an activewear snob. Only certain "It" brands graced my wardrobe, and I was all about those high-end labels, maintaining a bit of a nose-in-the-air mentality. But recently, my world has been turned upside down thanks to Old Navy's elite activewear. I'm currently pregnant with my second, meaning I'm trying to keep up with a toddler, manage my day-to-day errands, and work remotely. This new lifestyle has reshaped not just my daily routine but also my fashion choices: athleisure is the official freelancer/mom-of-littles uniform). Enter my newfound love: Old Navy's signature PowerSoft and Cloud+ fabrics.
First off, there's the PowerSoft fabric — a peachy-soft, sweat-wicking superstar that's been a game changer. With light compression, that's just right; it's like a gentle hug for my changing body. Then, there's the Cloud+ fabric. This latest fitness favorite from Old Navy is everything its name suggests: heavenly. Also, with light compression, it's perfect for my prenatal breathwork and strength sessions, and the stretchy, heathered material feels like a dream.
And as someone who lives in soft clothing of late, I can't get over how comfortable and versatile these fabrics are, whether I'm tackling emails, chasing after my 20-month-old, or squeezing in a quick Pilates session (my favorite workout, by the way).
I've come a long way from my high-end only days. Now, I'm all about Old Navy's affordable, trendy, and oh-so-soft fabrics. Their workout sets have become my daily uniform, and I'm obsessed with mixing and matching their athleisure staples. From sports bras that provide just the right amount of coverage and support to joggers that are perfect for both lounging and lunging, Old Navy has it all. Ahead, shop my current favorites, which yes, I own in multiples. Because when you find activewear that makes you feel this good, stocking up is a must.
