Woman-founded athleisure company Girlfriend Collective makes high-quality apparel that keeps both inclusivity and sustainability top of mind. From its bike shorts and fashionable-yet-functional workout dress to its super snuggly loungewear line, I've yet to be disappointed by a launch.

As if you needed another reason to love the brand, Girlfriend Collective just dropped a line of New Essentials we're already drooling over. An extension of the brand's Essentials collection, which features timeless basics to wear beyond the gym, the New Essentials collection adds comfortable bra tops, breezy shorts, water-resistant layers, and effortless one-pieces, all available in the brand's core colors—ivory, black, moss, and earth (dark brown).

Birdie Woven Skort — $48.00

Just because this skort is called the Birdie doesn’t mean it’s limited to the golf course. You can go anywhere in this durable skort. The gym, a 7-mile hike, the grocery store—wherever you may roam, this skort can go, too. It’s super versatile and feature-friendly, including built-in mesh shorts, side pockets, and UPF 50+ for protection on sunny days.

Each piece from the New Essentials collection features premium performance materials, like the brand's signature compressive fabric, mesh, and weatherproof nylon that work just as well when you're breaking a sweat as when you're relaxing on the couch. True to the brand's mission, the line is inclusive, with sizes ranging from XXS to 6XL. And it's eco-friendly—both the compressive styles (the bra tops, unitards, and skorts) and the woven styles, are made from recycled post-consumer water bottles. All of the synthetic fabrics are sustainable, ethically sourced, and recyclable through the brand's upcycling program, ReGirlfriend.

You can never have too many essentials (that's why they're called 'essentials,' after all).
