You may have seen “cottagecore” fashion and ankle-length jeans take over the internet in recent months. Now there’s a new TikTok fashion trend that Millennials and Gen Z have donned: the Exercise dress.
A few years ago, sportswear brand Outdoor Voices rocked the athletic world with the debut of the exercise dress – yes, that’s its proper name – which, as one would say, is essentially a sports dress you can train in. It looks like a tennis dress made of breathable lightweight fabric and built-in shorts with two pockets. (Who doesn’t like pockets?) People say he has a way of flattering all kinds of body types.
Unfortunately, it is still difficult to obtain. The exercise dress is almost sold out in all colors and sizes on their website. “The dress has been out of print for a while,” says Carson Everett, a “recspert” with local outside voices in Georgetown. “We added a new color and it was sold out [in the store] in three days.”
Everett managed to snatch seven of the $ 100 exercise dresses nonetheless, although she only recently joined the movement. She heard about the brand from a friend before she started working at Outdoor Voices, and then continued to complete her collection.
But back to the garment. This has been very prominent on TikTok, but since it’s so impossible to obtain, TikTok has recently become obsessed with a dress from Halara, another sportswear brand. the Halara In My Feels Everyday Dress is half the price and is virtually the same as Outdoor Voices. People really like to show it off.
Like the exercise dress, the In My Feels dress has pockets and built-in shorts. She will show you:
