True life: I don’t work out but I love workout clothes…

I’ve always loved that “I just went to the gym look” even when I didn’t. I really admire people that workout everyday – I just haven’t gotten to that chapter of my life yet and that’s ok! However, I will buy all the workout clothes even for lounging around my apartment because have you seen our OFFLINE by Aerie collection?!

Leggings are life – bless the OFFLINE by Aerie design team for the Real Me fabrication and its amazing feel. Especially given that many of us have been home more than ever these days, comfort is key and I find myself never wanting to take off the OFFLINE Real Me Leggings. They feel like you’re wearing nothing, which is everything.

You may be thinking, “I already have black leggings, what makes these different?” Well my friends, the new OFFLINE Real Me High Waisted Crossover Leggings have a cool new crossover waistline that is super flattering and if you’re into a high-waisted style, you will be a fan of these. They also come in a variety of colors and prints – including our famous leopard print! Pair the leggings with the OFFLINE Real Me Tank Top (yes, same fabrication in a tank – genius!) and you’ve found the perfect match. The tank has a built in sports bra for support (plus removable pads) which makes it a simple go-to piece.

I am all about a monochromatic look but to break it up add these OFFLINE socks and you’re channeling the aerobic queens of the ‘80s. For a layering piece, I love adding a sweatshirt for an effortless look. I’m wearing the Aerie Weekend Oversized Hoodie draped over my shoulders, which also comes in so many great colors this season. I love the dark heather gray but I will likely need every color in my life, including the matching joggers. To complete the look, you can’t go wrong with a scrunchie – I can’t get enough of this throwback accessory. This Aerie Fleece Scrunchie is basically your favorite gray sweatshirt transformed into a hair accessory. Can it get any better?

For more easy layering ideas over our Real Me Tank Top and leggings, I’m very into our Aerie Long Sleeve Oversized Crewneck T-Shirt. This tee is an easy piece to throw on and I’m feelin’ the oversized fit paired back to a fitted legging for a nice contrast.

Finally, as we head into the cooler months this cozy OFFLINE Sherpa Oversized Jacket never fails. This hoodie is so warm, soft and is perfect to wear when grabbing a coffee (mocha for me!), running errands, power walking or simply chilling on the couch.

While we’re in quarantine, indulge in the simple things like elastic waistbands and binging your favorite shows. Drop your own favorite workouts…I mean shows, lol…in the comments below!
