Sneak Peek of lucy Activewear Spring Collection

I attended a fun event last week, a preview of the lucy Activewear Spring collection. Despite being sad I could not partake in the champagne part of the event, it was fun to be in such a beautiful space – the penthouse of The Standard Hotel in the East Village – and see some beautiful workout clothes.

Disclaimer: I was not compensated to write this post, but lucy was kind enough to give me a cute pair of pants and if I wasn’t pregnant I totally would have had a free glass of champagne as well. Just keeping it on the up-and-up!

As soon as I saw the clothes, I was making a mental list for what to put on a wish list for post-baby workout gear! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll probably recognize the photo above of some of the Spring looks. But they’re not available until January, so instead I’m sharing a few pieces I loved from the lucy Holiday lookbook.

I admit, I wasn’t familiar with the brand – I’d heard of it, but didn’t have any of their clothes or know much about them. Here’s what I was impressed with:

  • The quality of the fabric: It felt weighty and like it was the kind of stuff that would last through countless workouts and  washing.
  • The colors: I loved the Spring colors – the pale acid greens and yellows, mixed with grey (and a healthy dose of purples, too). The Holiday line has a lot of blues, grays and a gorgeous peach shade throughout.
  • The versatility: This was a big selling point for me. A lot of the lucy pieces are obviously designed for not only working out, but for looking cute too and from the gym, or just hanging out – they even use the hashtag #wearever. Given that I am in workout clothes about 80% of the time, it is a huge bonus if they are actually stylish and fashionable as well.

Hands down, my favorite piece is this cute top, the Lean and Mean Pullover, priced at $79:

See what I mean about versatility? It would look just as good running errands or doing mama stuff as it does as a workout layer.

Another standout for me was the relaxed fit Get Going pant, $89. Apparently I’m not the only one who loves these – it’s one of their best-selling pieces.

Another top I loved that I think would be super bump-friendly is this layering piece, on the right, the Yoga Girl Pullover, $79. I’m all about layering for winter and I love this criss-cross wrap detail. The outfit on the left includes the Perfect Core Bra, $55, and Novelty Perfect Core Legging, $108. Without giving too much away, the Spring looks coming out in January are based on the idea of ‘Highrise’ – so they’re all about city style, but also play with rise and length. So a legging with a higher rise and a bra with a longer torso might be the updates to this look… 😉

Also loving all the cute back detail on lots of the lucy tops. Check out the  Dashing Stripes L/S top, $69, on top; and the Feel the Beat Tank, $59, on bottom. Also shown in the bottom image are the Yoga Girl leggings, $89, which I love for the color-block detail as well. I need to also point out that the Russian Twist exercise shown with the medicine ball in this image is one of the exercises I often see performed incorrectly by people when I’m at the gym.

And I pretty much just want to move in to The Standard. Look at those views!

You can shop for lucy activewear on their website and they’re also available on Amazon or Dick’s Sporting Goods. No NYC stores yet, but they’re looking for spaces! Woo hoo!

How often can you be found in workout clothes?

Have you heard of lucy before? Do you have any of their clothes?

  1. I hadn’t hear about lucy workout clothes until just recently. Cute stuff!!
    I wear workout clothes a lot (probably too much!!!). This winter I’m making a point to work my way through my “normal” clothes and get rid of some since I don’t a lot of them very often.

      I’ve been doing a lot of sorting through my clothes as well – I tend to get really sentimental about clothes more than anything else, for some reason! I really liked the quality of the lucy stuff – you should see if they have a brick & mortar store near you so you can check them out.

  2. Really? Lucy is new to you? I’ve been a Lucy-a-holic for gosh 10 years I think! There’s a store waaay to close to me. Love their cute styles and the quality is top notch. What a fun event and I’ll bet seeing their spring stuff was like a breath of fresh air!

      Yup, never seen them before! I’d heard of the brand but hadn’t tried their clothes. When they told me they were thinking of a store in Brooklyn or Manhattan, I was so torn, thinking, “Oooh, open in Brooklyn so I can shop there easily….Wait, no, don’t open in Brooklyn because I’ll shop there easily!” 😉

  3. This stuff is super cute! I love the crisscross top. It would look great in barre classes. I live in gym clothes. Actually they pretty much are the only clothes that fit me these days! I would wear gym clothes to work if I could!

      Maybe you should become an in-house lawyer for a health club or something, Britt! Kill two birds with one stone! 😉
