As I’ve grown older, I’ve come to realize that staying active is highly important. Now that I’m in a place where maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle is the norm, it’s also time that I maintain a functional, yet chic workout wardrobe. I could go to the mainstream shops to pick up usual gear that everyone else is wearing…
…Or I could shop Angle New York – a luxury activewear brand that focuses on fit and functionality, equality, sustainably; and is proudly made and manufactured in the USA. The brand’s founder- Kathy Angele, goes on to explain, “Fit and function are at the core of our brand. We are equally committed to eco-sustainable fashion. Our fabrics are technically advanced; including moisture wicking properties, antimicrobial fibers and UPF protection. Recycled yarns and eco-enriched fibers raise the bar in athletic fashion.”
Their debut collection, ‘The Original 9,’ was inspired by a group of nine professional women tennis players, who were fighting for equal rights in the 1970s. These women were led by tennis champion and women’s rights activist- Billie Jean King. Every garment is named in honor of one of those nine inspiring athletes, and features retro-inspired silhouettes. The website even gives mini bios on these women, along with the product descriptions and such.
I had the opportunity to test out some of their signature pieces, which you see in the photos below. I was able to pick out a couple choices, so I thought….well, golfing and hiking are pretty popular here in Phoenix area, so let me focus on that! I must say that after spending some time wearing Angle New York, they definitely stay true to everything- fit, functionality, and breathability. The fabrics were flexible and light, making it easy to get a hole-in-one. I especially liked the Peaches Hooded Jacket, with the convenient pockets and the little “secret” zippered compartment in the back; and the Crissy Tri-Layer Angle Skort due to its sleek design, and also that I can not only wear it for working out, it’s also cute enough to run errands in right after.
