The disparity between workout clothing and loungewear seems to get less clear daily. Not that we're complaining; we love not having to change clothes multiple times a day. But, this trend doesn't come without a side effect: As the two clothing categories become more alike, so do the two activities — at least, the ways we conceive of them do. Have you ever felt like you were "being active" just because you spent the day in fitness clothes? You know how it goes: 8 p.m. rolls around, and you realize you've been wearing a sports bra, leggings, and running shoes all day — but never actually made it to the gym.
This is why we're so into the newly launched, Venice Beach-based line Electric & Rose. Boasting a range of workout-meets-lounge pieces, the brand is notable for its bright, tie-dye prints and badass patterns. Aside from looking great, the wild prints exude energy and liveliness — which makes wearing them while binge-watching The Bachelorette feel almost awkward. While you'll still need some motivation to, you know, get yourself out the door, once you do, these guys will definitely give you that extra burst to work harder.
