If fresh and preppy is your style then you’ll be all over the first collection of performance activewear from J. Crew.
Designed in partnership with New Balance and launch last month in stores and online at www.jcrew.com , the pieces are styles ones pulled from the New Balance core line, including leggings, hoodies, tanks and shorts, but given a J. Crew twist — that is with exclusive colourways.
We’re particularly fond of the colourblocking for the windbreakers and the feminine polka dots (which we feel can be worn straight to post-workout coffee or brunch without making you look like you’ve come straight from a workout).
