Lululemon Athletica Review: Fashion and Fitness Combined in Everyday Wear

Get better at the sports you play and the life you lead at STACK. Improve your training, nutrition and lifestyle with daily

If you're unfamiliar with Lululemon Athletica, their mission is to create quality training clothing that combines technology with style to fit both form and function. Their latest summer looks were made for everyday wear and performance training.

5-Year Basic Tee

The 5-year basic tee has an athletic fit designed to never lose its shape, no matter how many times you wash it. Made with Lulelemon's Vitasea® fabric, a yarn derived from seaweed and blended with cotton and spandex that offers comfort in a form fit. Preshrunk and machine washable, the tee is great for heavy training sessions. Or, you know, that post-workout nap on the couch.

Light As Air Tech Short Sleeve Shirt

Designed with the high-intensity athlete in mind, this shirt employs Lululemon's Silverescent ® technology for moisture wicking and odor suppression. Panels of circle mesh in high-sweat regions keep it breathable and chafe resistant; but the best feature of the shirt is its reversibility.

Run Response Shorts

I'm a guy who prefers shorts with a relaxed fit, so I was a bit hesitant to try Lululemon's Run Response shorts. However, they are extremely comfortable and functional for the toughest training sessions. With a 9-inch inseam and mesh paneling on the sides and rear, the shorts are cut generously and designed for breathability and heat release during workouts. The Coolmax ® liner is a 100-percent lightweight polyester, which channels out moisture to keep you dry and chafe-free. Dual hip pockets and one zippered pocket allow you to carry your keys, wallet and iPod without feeling weighed down.
