The Outdoor Voices Exercise Dress Was Wildly Popular Last Year—Now Here's The New Collection That Could Be Just As Big
By Elaine Selna
As athleisure brands go, Outdoor Voices is huge right now. One of the brand’s most popular items is the internet-famous Exercise Dress—a lightweight, nylon-spandex dress that retails for $100 and is ridiculously popular with influencers on TikTok and Instagram. But the brand, which was founded in 2013 and goes by the motto that it wants to "get the world moving," offers plenty of other apparel that stylishly blurs the line between loungewear and workout gear. Case in point? The latest Outdoors collection brings the brand’s adventurous sensibility into the wild.
This new Outdoors collection cements Outdoor Voices as the Patagonia of athleisure by combining the brand’s playful personality with the great outdoors. The theme for the Fall/Winter 2021 range is "take a hike" and features leggings, beanies, long-sleeved shirts, and more that'll keep you warm, prepared, and most of all, fashionable for a long day outside.
The brand’s sartorial color-blocking style is on display in this collection, especially when you check out the bucket hats, sweatpants, and other trendy clothes that are up for grabs. In addition, you can shop colorful camouflage and faded ombre patterns, so you can stay warm and still look good.
One of the big standouts in this collection is the Rumpl Original Puffy, a weather-resistant, packable blanket made entirely of post-consumer recyclable materials. It retails for $99 and is available in multiple eye-catching prints and solid and faded colorways. You can also grab vests—including a fleece option for $118, a pullover for $128, and a full-zip for $148, respectively—that have plenty of pockets to store snacks and hand warmers. Of course, it wouldn’t be an Outdoors collection without hiking boots, so the brand has two pairs available: the golden yellow Anacapa Mid GTX hiking boots, which are made with waterproof nubuck leather and retail for $170, and a limited-edition version of the Moab 2 Mid OV Eco hiking boots, which are now marked down to $104 from $140, so you'll save $36. With the Moab 2 boots, you can choose from two colors available, red lava and green limestone.
While Outdoor Voices items aren't budget-friendly for all shoppers, they're slightly more affordable compared to Lululemon and get rave reviews from shoppers for their comfort and wearability. You can start planning your trip to a national park and keep warm in the process with Outdoor Voices’ new Outdoor collection, plus get free shipping on orders of $75 or more. If you sign up for the brand’s emails, you can get a 20 percent off code to use on your first order of $100 or more (some exclusions apply).
