My preppy side comes out when the temperatures rise above 60 degrees. Two of my favorite prepster brands, J. Crew and Lilly Pulitzer, have come out with athletic lines, meaning we can look super cute and be super comfy all at the same time!

J. Crew partnered with New Balance to come up with unique athletic wear that is different from what you see at Lululemon and Athlete. The patterns are fun, classy and not too busy. I love that their sports bras are long enough to double as crop tops! I also adore the pastel shades that the collection comes in. All my leggings are pretty much black and from Lululemon, so adding some navy and other colors into my closet is much needed.
Lilly Pulitzer debuted its Luxletic line, featuring Lilly prints in new comfy pieces! I love the skorts and leggings! The prints they picked are more on the tame side for Lilly which I personally appreciate. The tanks and shirts are suuuuuuper comfy and match the bright colors in the patterned bottoms quite well. I know that if the skorts come out in more patterns, I will buy all of them 😉
Personally, I really like that both brands stepped outside their respective comfort zones and gave their customers what they want. Both brands pride themselves on being proper and classy, and I know a few years ago the idea of either making leggings would have been laughable. However, the times they are a changin’ and now both have full fledged athletic lines! I applaud both J. Crew and Lilly Pulitzer for giving us fashionable comfy options for travel days, rainy days, or just plain old Mondays.
What are your thoughts?! Will you be getting anything from either line?
