It’s no secret that years of working from home have changed the game in how we get dressed — when it comes down to jeans or leggings, we’re team stretchy every time. To keep your activewear looking chic outside of your HIIT class, the key is in striking a balance — between sporty and professional (for the office) or sporty and sexy (for going out). We believe in the power of the third piece to take your fit up a notch, whether that’s a tailored blazer, utility jacket, or lightweight button-down shirt. For days in the office, weekend errands, and afternoon plans with friends, read on for some styling inspo to elevate your fave activewear pieces.

She’s got plans. A tailored blazer is a no-brainer: we love this iteration by Birgitte Herskind — it’ll ward off any office AC, keep you covered on the subway, and is easy to throw on post-Pilates. It’s the perfect third layer to this houndstooth playsuit by The Upside (a BANDIER exclusive!). Add a few gold accessories, chunky leather slides, and you’re out the door. Barre to bar, literally.


Weekends are for hot girl walks — we don’t make the rules. Everyone knows the ultimate base for a HGW is a little black set, and this strappy Le Ore Bra + Center Stage Bike Short are a duo that won’t fail you. A sweatshirt around the waist in case of sudden breeze, a comfy pair of Nikes, and a baseball hat — it’s sporty, it’s easy: you’re set for 70 degree park days or a run to Whole Foods.


A matching set is a tried-and-true choice, but keeping your third piece in the same color family is a sure way to keep things looking put together and intentional, rather than throw-on-and-go. Le Ore’s sweat-wicking Le Sculpt set is Pilates-ready, but chic enough to keep wearing throughout your day. Add a pop of color with a bag and you’re set. We’d even wear this to the office, with a crisp button-down over top for a little coverage and polish. Because yes, we believe wearing activewear to the office should be a thing.
