If you’re addicted to Outdoor Voices’ supremely cool, understated pieces, you’ll no doubt love the line’s latest venture.
On Thursday, the downtown-girl-approved brand will release its Merino wool collection. This is the first time the ultra-hip athleisure label has branched out from its core fabrics, and the end result is just as cute, cozy, and flattering as you’d expect.
“Merino wool is a miracle fabric. It’s naturally antimicrobial, naturally moisture-wicking, naturally breathable, naturally temperature-regulating,” Outdoor Voices founder Tyler Haney told us.
In other words, this collection is designed for action—whether it’s a dance cardio class or a 20-mile bike ride. “I wear it from high sweat workouts like The Class with Taryn Toomey to chilly outdoor runs. Merino is also wrinkle-resistant, so the pieces are great for travel,” Haney adds.
Plus, you can feel good about wearing it: The brand says all the wool in the collection is sourced from Global Merino, a manufacturer globally recognized for its sustainable supply chain and ethical and environmental responsibility.
The way-chic collection’s design was kept really simple (by Outdoor Voices standards)—with a black-gray-blue palette—in order to let the beauty of the material stand out, Haney says.
And best of all, the pieces—from the low-slung, cool-girl sweats to the edgy-but-understated muscle tees, which range from $60–$110—are truly mountain-climbers-to-mimosas friendly, since the soft fabric doesn’t give you away like a flash of shiny Spandex will. Even better, it keeps your post-workout bod warm. —Alison Feller
