The classic “jeans and a cute top” look will never go out of style but in terms of comfort, it pales in comparison to stretchy leggings and a cotton sweatshirt. While most people associate athleisure and activewear with a sweaty gym session or a yoga class, it can be worn anywhere. 

So if you’re searching for a few new pieces to add to your current rotation of work-from-home attire, look no further than relevé.

The activewear and loungewear boutique, located in Toronto (1727 Bayview), carries fashionable pieces that are simple and flattering. Its collection of clothing is specially curated to make women feel confident and comfortable in real-life situations.

Since opening in March, the store has quickly become a go-to destination for luxury clothing that you can move in with ease. Life is simply too short to spend it wearing itchy blouses, structured pants, and tightly buttoned jackets that severely limit your range of motion. Looking good doesn’t have to feel uncomfortable. 

“At relevé, we have a carefully selected collection of women’s active and lounge brands like Alo Yoga, ON Running, Girlfriend Collective, Beyond Yoga, Superga, and Aviator Nation, to name a few,” says relevé owner Gillian Medina.

Other coveted brands found hanging on the racks at relevé include Vitamin A, Michael Lauren, KORAL, Lack of Color, DAYDREAMER, Cosabella, and more. 

The activewear boutique has an impressive collection of high-waisted leggings, effortless pullover tops, and jackets that can be worn on any occasion. Shoppers will also find lounge bras made without painful underwires and other intimates that’ll make them feel sexy without having to compromise comfort. 

Plus, fashionistas can explore relevé’s selection of footwear and accessories, from candles and beauty products to socks, hats, and arm weights. 

The shopping experience at relevé is truly one-of-a-kind. Between the shop’s modern aesthetic and friendly staff, customers will feel inspired to showcase their unique personalities through clothing. 

“I wanted to create a shopping environment that has more in common with a spa than a traditional activewear store,” says Medina. “It’s important that our customers always feel welcomed and comfortable to stay as long as they would like.” 

When it comes to wearing activewear to places other than spin class, there are several tips and tricks that can make your outfit appear less casual. Try layering by tossing an oversized blazer over your spandex tank top or accessorizing your cotton crewneck hoodie with a statement necklace. Crop tops also pair perfectly with high-waisted pants, resulting in a super chic look that can be worn on a night out with your friends. 

With the holidays lingering around the corner, the luxury boutique also has wonderful gift options for every comfort or exercise enthusiast on your shopping list.
