Spring is finally starting to make its way toward NYC and there's no better way to celebrate than with a workout in the great outdoors. To us city dwellers that means hitting the streets, parks and river runs to get our sweat on. The fashionable and functional Spring and Summer 2017 lineup from lululemon athletica has everything you need to get your body ready for beach season. The staple Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve shirt will be the first thing you reach for before every workout. Light and breathable, it's armed with anti-stink technology so you can wear it multiple times without a wash. The Twill Chill Half Zip features a subtly stylish herringbone Luxtreme fabric infused with state of the art quick-dry sweat-wicking technology—ensuring you won't look like you fell in the Hudson when you hit the juice bar post-workout.
One of my favorite items from the collection is the Grind Down Pant. Armed with abrasion resistant fabric, they can handle anything the grit and grind of an urban workout throws their way. Featuring a slim, tapered fit and narrow ankle, they transition perfectly to the streets when you throw a topcoat over your gym clothes on a chilly morning coffee run. This collection might be your new weekend wardrobe. Because lets be honest, brunch is way better in comfy sweats and tees.
