* Target debuts its new athleisure line, Joy Lab
* Streetwear-inspired workout clothes at affordable prices
* On-trend pieces that go straight from crunches to brunches
Fashion and fitness have no doubt become intertwined. Long gone are the days of sweating it out in a ratty college tee and baggy sweats. Now days, it’s all about activewear with slick silhouettes in high-performance fabrics stylish enough to take you from “crunches to brunches.” Target’s new athleisure line, Joy Lab takes this idea to a new level with fashionable workout/hangout clothes at wallet-friendly prices.
The collection brings together a bit of streetwear edge with functional athletic activewear, featuring bold colors, cheerful prints and flattering cuts. Sports bras are dotted with florals and tie-dyes, while bold racing stripes and color blocking bring a graphic punch to basic warm up jackets and leggings. Helpful design considerations can be found among these pieces, too. For instance, some of the bras are designed with back pockets perfectly sized to stash your smartphone.
With almost all items priced under $50, you can order yourself enough pieces to mix, match and have a fresh outfit on hand for every workout.
1. Women’s Asymmetrical Bra Top
Bold color blocking and a strategic cut-out back give this top a decidedly high-fashion vibe. The long-line silhouette means you can skip the extra layer of a tank and work it as a crop top.
2. Performance High-Waist Leggings
Match these graphic leggings with the asymmetrical crop top above, or mix with the line’s many fun-colored tech-fabric tops.
3. Women’s Plus Bra with Back Pocket
Available in standard and plus sizes, Joy Lab’s line offers sizes 1x-3x. Wide straps offer high-support and a handy little back pocket that lets you workout to your favorite tunes hands-free.
4. Polka Dot Sweater With Elbow Cut Outs
Slashed at the elbow, this cheerful tomato red sweatshirt offers ventilation after an intense sweat session and acts as a fun peek-a-boo piece to layer over a contrasting colored top.
5. Shine Tote Bag
This shiny padded bag will easily take you from workout to weekend, with space to spare. A zip top and exterior pocket means your stuff will stay put and organized, too.
6. Women’s Plus Bomber Jacket
You don’t even need to be gym-bound to wear this jacket. This sporty bomber is made of lightweight tech black fabric, and it looks just as good with jeans as it does your yoga pants.
