Athleisure Trends: Must-Have Colors, Fits & Performance Features

If there’s one promo trend that isn’t going away any time soon, it’s athleisure. Next Level Apparel (asi/73867) knows this, which is why they’re investing in their CVC collection and updating their athleisure offerings with the latest trends and colors. To learn more about the latest performance must-haves, we spoke with Taylor Young, Product & Business Development Coordinator at NLA, who shared with us the trends to focus on and exciting new offerings you’ll see later this year.

Starting off our conversation, we asked Young to share any athleisure trends she expects to see evolving or become more commonplace into the future.

“The biggest one is versatility as well as multi-functional clothing. It’s a balance of comfort yet sophisticated details and fashion-forward cuts and colors,” Young says.

As for color trends, neutrals and earthy tones are the way to go. “My favorite thing to say is you can go from the Yoga mat to a Zoom meeting and then go out to eat without looking out of place,” Young shares.

We then asked Young to share her thoughts about NLA’s CVC collection, which is filled with athleisure favorites like tees, tanks and raglans. Young explains how, as they like to say at NLA, this apparel collection is big on value and easy on the eyes. “This collection is also the industry’s favorite fabric blend, as it offers great breathability, shape retention and exceptional printability for an affordable price,” Young explains.

Finally, we asked Young about her personal favorite CVC styles. Be sure to present these performance styles to your clients to set them up with the most of-the-moment athleisure trends possible.
