Sweat It Out

If you’re a Pavilion regular, and an Editorial loyalist then you know comfort is always king for us. We’ve defined our casual and comfortable work from home uniform, but as we continue to shelter and work from home, those sweet, precious sweatpants are a new necessity. For many of us, tucking away that formal wear is a tough pill to swallow, but let’s face it - we can be equally as productive in our sweats if we put our minds to it. In this week’s editorial, we are showing you our favorite sweatsuit combos that feel more fashion than frumpy. Give yourself permission to give in to comfort but keep things elevated in the ones we’ve highlighted here for you.
The entire Modern Basix capsule collection is one of our current obsessions, but the clear stand out is their Jogger in Black. Made in San Francisco, this entire line is the perfect marriage of athleisure and the everyday woman - a true must-have to get you through the duration of this quarantine. Centered around female empowerment and sustainability these joggers are made using a blend of recycled Modal sourced from beech trees, that is both anti-wrinkle and anti-pill - creating the ultimate elevated black pant to be worn all day and night. We love the flexible high mesh waistband and banded cuff combined with the ultra-soft hand-feel of this classic silhouette jogger. Pair these slinky sweats with another black modal favorite. We love how these look with the latest from Alternative Apparel - the Modal Interlock Pullover Crew in Black. Another sustainably sourced piece, this new sweatshirt is made using their signature Tencel, created from recycled wood combined with cotton fibers to achieve that hard to beat strength and softness. Keep your quietly chic outfit camera ready by matching your favorite black modal pieces - your colleagues will never know how comfortable you actually are.

If black on black isn’t your cup of tea, opt for a classic camo print. We love Alternative Apparel’s Printed Eco-Fleece Jogger in Camo. Easy on the wallet (and environment), and soft-to-the-touch, these classic jogger style sweats are too cute to pass up. Cut from their signature recycled eco-fleece fabrication, this pant features tailored pockets, an easy drawstring waist, and banded cuff bottom. This fresh fleece is a bit on the thicker and warmer side, we recommend sizing up for a more relaxed look, or taking your true size if you prefer your sweats slim. Layering is an essential part of spring, particularly in a city like San Francisco, so we paired our eco fleece joggers with another Alternative Apparel favorite - the Mia Slinky Rib in Black. Made from a super-soft polyester blended rib fabric,  this fitted crew style tee is an easy must-have staple. The body-hugging silhouette makes this the perfect tee to layer underneath a zip-up sweatshirt for the perfect match-back moment with your joggers. We think head to toe sweatsuit feels a bit more intentional and fashionable to we thought we would complete the look with the Rocky Printed Camo Eco-Fleece Zip Hoodie. This unisex style is cut from the same print and fabrication as their eco fleece jogger making this the ultimate sweatsuit.  We recommend sizing down for the ladies for a closer fit as this is a unisex style and runs a bit longer.

 Last but not least, we could not be more in love with Mitchell Evan’s newest “sweatsuit” creation - the Aqua Lava Set. This Los Angeles based athleisure brand has mastered the art of loungewear.  The first ingredient to this on trend tie dye combo is their Steel Panel Joggers. An off-duty essential, these super soft sweats are an elevated alternative to the basic jogger featuring a drawstring waist and a slimmer hem. Made using the brand’s signature brushed fleece fabrication, this trend-forward print can be worn with everything from tees to hoodies, to sweaters. These are mens style and run quite slim - ladies take your regular size (model shown in size S and is a women’s S ad well).  Finish off your matching moment with the Malibu Hoodie in Aqua Lava. Constructed from the same fleece fabric, this is more tailored than your average bulky pullover, the Malibu is a modern must. Crafted to deliver the buttery soft hand-feel that Mitchell Evan is known for, this hoodie features a kangaroo pouch pocket at the front with impeccable attention to construction detail and finishings. Although this tracksuit is men’s, Mariko is wearing a size Small to show how versatile and unisex this style really is.
