In order to bring something new into our wardrobe, it needs to meet three standards. First, we think it should be timeless — we want clothing that will last well beyond the season’s fast-fashion trends. Second, it’s gotta be comfortable (duh). And third, we try to purchase items that are multi-purpose and can be styled many ways, reducing our cost-per-wear.
You might not think all three would apply to workout clothes, but when it comes to 828 Leggings by Brüt Athletics, all of our must-haves are met! The leggings earned their name because you’ll want to wear them from 8AM to 8PM. We’ve put them to the test over the last couple of weeks, and quickly realized it was more of a 7AM to midnight thing — they’re that great!
828 Leggings are made from a revolutionary new Argent Flex™ fabric. This material is a blend of nylon, Lycra, and high-tech silver thread that is lightweight and breathable. More importantly, Argent Flex™ blocks odors, wicks away moisture, and dries really quickly. After a particularly sweaty pilates sesh, we were shocked that the leggings were dry before we got back to the car! (No embarrassing sweat stains, thank you very much.) We’ve worn them hiking, to a boot camp class in the park, and, let’s be honest, watching a few hours of The Crown on Netflix. They earned the title of ‘favorite’ pretty quickly!
Function aside, these earned a place in our hearts (and our closets!) due to the stylish design. The leggings have a really nice silhouette — a high-rise waist and flat-lock seams — and come in three color ways (black, navy, and a colorblock combo). And the pockets are wisely placed, with a spot to zip in your keys or cash and two side pockets that will hold your cell phone. They look great at the gym, but just as cute when styled with a sweater. Brüt Athletics is officially launching soon, so be sure to sign up for their mailing list.
