YOU MAY be familiar with Vuori already, but allow us to reintroduce you. This Cali-based athleisure brand was founded in 2015 by Joe Kudla, a dude on a mission to create a premium activewear line that integrates west coast lifestyle, yoga, surf, and sport in one. While the quality competes with some of the priciest workout clothing labels on the market, their prices are relatively reasonable. And with Vuori’s Early Memorial Day sale section just in time for a spring/summer wardrobe upgrade, that’s more true than ever, making it the perfect time to try out some items from the coastal clothing maker.
Created with the intention of combining the functionality of workout wear with the low-key and comfy vibe of everyday threads, one of our favorite aspects of the activewear is its versatility. The company’s signature gym shorts and workout pants are moisture-wicking and quick-drying, making them performance-savvy for high-intensity exercises. At the same time, the clothing has a casual, laid-back style, thanks to the brand’s mission to deliver pieces that can be worn for just about any activity. The joggers are as fit for a lazy Sunday as for a gym session, while its zip-up hoodies can be useful in just about any climate.
The beefed-up Memorial Day Sale section has a huge range of products including the iconic Banks Shorts (in variable lengths), lightweight Daybreak Windbreakers, and a bunch of buttery-soft workout shirts. The designs are also really smart, with many of them featuring thoughtful details like hidden pockets and adjustable waistbands.
We love Vuori’s commitment to inclusivity, too. Offerings include a wide range of sizes, from XS to XXL, to ensure that their clothing can be enjoyed by many shapes and sizes.
And better yet, sustainability is core to the climate neutral certified brand’s ethos. A commitment to using environmentally friendly materials and practices throughout their supply chain make them one of the responsible activewear makers out there. Recycled polyester, organic cotton, and other sustainable materials are used to construct their clothing, and recent updates indicate the team is actively working to reduce waste and emissions in their production processes.
Going the extra mile, the company has even partnered with the Sustainable Apparel Coalition to help improve the sustainability of the entire apparel industry.
