As loungewear became a valuable part of our wardrobes during lockdown, and the promise of an open summer got us back into activewear, we reignited a love affair with leisurewear that we don’t think we’ll ever be ready to let go of again. Sure, activewear is useful for working out (and nothing provides more motivation than a fresh matching set), but it’s also perfect for those busy days when you need to run errands and race to appointments, and comfort must come first. No matter how much we missed getting dressed up when we spent all of our time at home, we’re getting back to the fast pace of the 9-to-5 life, and nothing is better when you’re on the go than clothing that’s just as flexible as you are.
Prioritising comfort doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style, and when you need fashion that’s functional too, you need to have Gilly Hicks on your radar. You might remember it as the little sister of the Hollister brand, but Gilly Hicks’s focus on high-quality activewear, loungewear and underwear has made it our go-to for sportswear and all things comfy-casual. We’re talking co-ords and workout sets, mix-and-match options and pretty intimates, so whether you’re going hiking or to a HIIT class, you can depend on Gilly Hicks’s long-lasting fabrics to see you through for seasons to come.
