The brands rounded up below aren't necessarily new or extremely niche, but they are a decidedly less common choice than your Lululemon's or Outdoor Voices. Rounded up are seven of the activewear brands you should get familiar with before they become ubiquitous sightings at your workout studios.
7 Days Active
7 Days Active is made for motion—on and off the playing field. If you're someone who likes options, you'll love this brand. It has everything from sweatsuits to swimsuits to shorts, hoodies, and essentials like sports bras.
Live the Process
Live the process is a modern activewear line with everything from bodysuits to leggings to loungewear pieces. If you're looking for athletic wear you'll have for years and can dress up or down, Live the Process has got you covered.

A good crop top is a must, and we love this minimal offering that pairs perfectly with any bottom of your liking.
Joah Brown is the epitome of a brand that blurs or completely erases, the lines between activewear, athleisure, and ready-to-wear clothing. Take the T-shirts. However you choose to style them—they look as appropriate and outfit-completing with a pair of jeans as they do with a pair of bike shorts.

All Access is a monochrome lover's dream. The line is comprised of minimal, yet bold, pieces that work in their tone-on-tone pairings yes, but that also works if you're more of the pick-and-mix persuasion.

You can never go wrong with black biker shorts, but if you’re looking for something more playful and bold, we recommend these metallic biker shorts.
Year of Ours
Inspired by classic American sportswear, Year of Ours is all about multi-wear transitional pieces that hold up in workouts and in your everyday life. Plus, the sizes range from XXS to 2X.

First and foremost, Splits59 makes performance wear. Their clothing is created with every aspect of your active lifestyle in mind—many of their pieces boast features such as moisture-wicking technology, four-way stretch fabric, and light compression. Aesthetically the clothes run the gamut from chic and refined to nostalgic-tinted (think elevated Sporty Spice).
In search of leggings that are so comfortable, they feel like nothing? We’ve got you covered with this high-waist pair.
If Staud and Missoni had an activewear lovechild, that brand would Nagnata. The brand makes environmentally conscious knit cotton activewear that Cher Horowitz definitely would be caught dead in. The pieces are beautiful and minimalist but somehow manage to bring originality to something as ubiquitous as color blocking.
If the uniforms you wore to JV sports practice were redesigned by a Parsons graduate, they would look like Nylora. The brand mixes traditional athletic materials and silhouettes (think perforated jerseys) with unexpected contours and colors.
