The Best Athleisure Brands to Wear in 2018

As we pointed out yesterday, it's officially been confirmed that consumers are buying more leggings than skinny jeans in the U.S. According to a report from Quartz, data revealed that, for the first time, imports of elastic knit pants (aka leggings) have surpassed those of jeans. This data isn't completely shocking, considering the spike in legging trends and new athleisure brands hitting the market of late.

Since said market is overwhelmingly saturated with exceptional brands to shop for athleisure items, we wanted to clear the cutter and highlight three of our favorite lines to shop for leggings, sports bras, and everything in between. From the brand nearly every celeb endorses to the line behind the #DoingThings movement—and of course our go-to affordable activewear brand, JoyLab, available at Target—these are the best athleisure labels to wear this year.
