How To Find Good Athletic Apparel

Here at Tasc, we take athletic apparel seriously. 

The right outfit can mean the difference between setting a new personal best and cutting out early for the day. Today, we want to talk about the best options for athletic wear and how to find the gear that’ll get you going.

While athleisure is always trending, athletic apparel needs to be as powerful as it is stylish. The materials need to keep us cool and comfortable, while the designs need to keep our needs in mind without getting in our way.

Whether you’re going for a run, a spin class, or just running errands, your clothes need to feel good and look good, too. We’re breaking down how to find high-quality athletic wear and the best place to shop. Let’s get started!

What Is Athletic Apparel?

You don’t have to be an athlete to wear athletic apparel. These highly functional ‘fits are for all, whether you’re a running hobbyist, a gym-lover, or just looking for something cute to wear to the coffee shop. Crop tops and sports bras under a flannel are trending, and fashion has started to embrace the athleisure look — there’s never been a better time to get in on the action.

Still, if you’re passionate about fitness, you know that not every pair of joggers is created equal. Athletic apparel is clothing that’s designed to keep you cool and give the range of motion needed for top-tier athletic performance. When you need to wear hoodies to run because it’s freezing outside, you’ll be happy you chose a brand that took your needs into consideration. 

If this is your first time diving into workout clothes, you’ve come to the right place. We understand and know the need for good exercise gear and take your comfort seriously. Get those shopping carts full — we’ve got all the best styles with the right feel and fit. 

What Should I Look for in Athletic Wear?

You know how important it is to find a t-shirt that works with you — not against you. But how do you find that perfect fit without taking it for a test run first?

We’ve got the tips and tricks you need to find the best quality activewear for your body type and fitness needs.

These fabrics and qualities to look out for are important to your range of motion and body’s breathability while working out. Many times clothing companies forget how important these attributes are for a proper workout. These are the style and fit criteria to check off to ensure you’re getting the best quality for your buck from warm-up to cool down. 

Performance Fabrics

Some fabrics are just better when it comes to athletic clothing. Certain materials offer highly-necessary benefits to level up your workouts, like moisture-wicking, temperature regulation, breathability, and odor control. Plus, features like UPF sun protection make it easier to enjoy your favorite outdoor activities like running, hiking, and hitting the basketball court.

Be on the lookout for awesome functional fabrics like: 

These fabrics make the best apparel that will keep you cool and warm but won’t infringe on your workout. Take our women’s apparel, for example: 

Our leggings are made from cotton, bamboo, and elastane to give you stretch in all the directions you’ll need while stopping your sweat from causing issues while you exercise. What’s even better? They have a pocket on the side to keep your phone on you at all times without having to hold it. 

If you need the men’s shop, don’t worry — we’ve got you guys covered, too. Our joggers are made from the same blend of fabrics, specially formulated to fit your needs. We adjust our blends to give just the right amount of stretch and cooling. Plus, the way we design our pockets ensures that your phone stays put during your entire workout but is always within reach. 

If you’re in the market for tops, then check out our long sleeve collection. You’ll get our top-quality blends of materials with the best classic and trendy colors. The fabric will keep you cool and allow your skin to breathe while you sweat during a pick-up game at the gym, but it can also keep you warm if a run in the early hours is more your thing. 

Earth-Conscious Business Practices

The best brands on the market are the most sustainable ones.

Sustainable shopping means that your quality clothes are made with little impact on the environment. Imagine your sweatshirt being the most comfortable piece you’ve ever put on and knowing that it didn’t harm the Earth in the process. This priority is so important for the future of fashion, and we are proud to be pioneers in the arena. 

Whether you’re picking “shop men” or “shop women” at your favorite online retailers, you should be able to checkout with a clear conscience. That’s exactly what you can do by shopping with us. 

Our fabrics and clothing are all focused on making the least impact on the environment as possible without compromising wear or accessibility. We grow and harvest our bamboo responsibly, treat and re-use our wastewater, and fully power our knitting and sewing facilities using wind and solar energy.

It’s a win-win for the Earth and our customers. 

Looking Good, Not Just Feeling Good

While the wear and feel of sportswear is the most crucial piece of the puzzle, you want to look good, too. Style shouldn’t have to be compromised to be a good fit. Thankfully, being a Tasc customer means you’ll always have functionality and style. 

Take our women’s running shorts, for example. The material keeps you cool and comfortable, and the inner lining keeps your shorts in place. This means if you’re running or working out, your shorts won’t budge. It also means that if you’re just getting dressed to run out for a morning coffee, your shorts are in place but really cute and wearable all day without looking like you just rolled out of bed (even if you did). 

Plus, we know that a t-shirt is a classic short sleeve option for the summer, but adding a v-neckdetail takes it to the next level. Having plenty of options for tee styles means you can tailor your activewear to your tastes. 

No matter the task, you can be comfortable without compromising on style.

What Are You Waiting For?

Now that you know the tips and tricks for finding the best apparel, we know you’ll be able to find something you love. With Tasc’s awesome styles and on-trend colors, you won’t have to struggle to get ready every morning. 

Whether going for a jog or just jogging to the nearest coffee shop, our gear will keep you cool while you look cool. Even better, you can wear our styles and rest easy knowing that your fashion choices also benefit the environment. Fashion is fun, but it’s even more fun knowing our items will stick around for the long run!
