Found: the athleisure brand we all need

Found: the athleisure brand we all need

Well, I’ve found it … this is the athleisure brand we all need! Varley is a London-based, California-inspired brand that has actually been on my radar for quite some time. After wearing a couple of jackets and sweaters (and their super-soft leggings) all winter long, I can decidedly tell you I love this line and highly recommend their pieces!

Let’s be honest, most of us spend most of our time doing “life” things: wfh, running errands, meeting a friend for a walk, working out, grabbing coffee or lunch, traveling here and there. We want to be comfortable, but look elevated at the same time. Varley makes the perfect modern staples for an active lifestyle — high quality, comfy and super stylish.

A while back, I featured a Varley cardigan on a style board … and it immediately sold out. And, just last week on Instagram, I was wearing this crochet sweater, and many of you messaged me about it. Same with the super flattering shorts and matching top set (below) that I wore on my last trip to Palm Springs. Now that the brand has transitioned from activewear for millennials to athleisure for everyone, I’m all in!

Check out the Varley items I’ve been wearing every day & packing for my upcoming trips. I hope you love them as much as I do!


Favorite Varley sweaters

Right now, half zip sweater styles are very popular, and this is the one I’ve been wearing non-stop. I love the pretty gold zipper — it looks great with gold necklaces. Also tried this one which is a little heavier but still cute, and super soft since it’s 100% cotton. Perfect for our cooler days here in Portland 😌 Here are a couple more favorites I’ll be taking on trips with me in the near future.


Super soft joggers

Mover over, Vuori! The joggers I’m wearing in the photo (above left) are my new favorites. They’re really soft, which makes them perfect to wear on plane and car trips. And, they’re super flattering because of the higher rise — they make your legs look really long. Pair them with sneakers or everyday slides (or even slippers). Once you put these on, you won’t want to take them off. Varley hit the nail on the head with these joggers!


Shorts? Yes!


Left: Top | Shorts | Sandals | Straw Tote | Sunglasses | Right: Top | Shorts | Sweatshirt | Sneakers | Tote Bag

I am not a shorts person, and was quite skeptical about these (above left). But when they arrived, I immediately tried them on, and I think they might be the first pair I’ve ever liked! The fabric drapes perfectly, the fit is flattering (they’re just the right length), and I love them paired with the matching top (or this tonal sweater).


Everyday athleisure Outfits


Left: Joggers | Tank Top | Fleece | Slides | Tote Bag | Yoga Mat | Right: Sports Bra | Leggings | Sweatshirt | Tote Bag | Sneakers

This is athleisure at its best! The other day I wore every item on the above left style board — I had lunch with a girlfriend, ran a couple of errands and hit the gym for a quick workout (switched to sneaks, of course). Then I made dinner and worked on a post … still in my outfit. This is all-day wear, I’m telling you 🙂


Tennis & Pickleball Faves


Left: Tank Top | Skirt | Knit Polo | Weekend Bag | Sneakers | Right: Tennis Dress | Knit Pullover | Hat | Sneakers | Tote Bag

We all need some fun clothes from the current tennis trend, don’t we? Of course, only add a few pieces if you like this trend AND it looks good on you. You can wear these pieces for tennis, pickleball or if you just want to look cute! 🤍
