tasc’s New Spring Line: The Perfect Match Up for an Active Couple
When it comes to activewear, I typically look for transitional pieces that can take me comfortably from Mother’s Day Out drop off, to the gym and later to cozy up at home and watch my favorite shows at the end of the day (where are all my Bachelor fans?). I wear leggings almost 7 days a week, so a comfortable pair that can multi-task with my day-to-day rat race is a must. On a typical day, athleisure is my go to outfit of choice, and I appreciate workout tops and bottoms that can pass from the gym straight to the grocery store, and perhaps a date night too.
My husband also thrives in transitional activewear that can be worn to the office, the tennis court and the golf course. If it doubles as a date night outfit, all the better. My better half thrives on multi-functionality and simple closet staples.
tasc’s new spring line came just in time for this active couple.
With a two year old running this house, we don’t just sweat from an actual workout – there’s plenty of hide and seek, racing, sliding, jumping, climbing, and twisting constantly keeping us on our toes. Once we finish catching our toddler, we also need to be able to jump from carpool to yoga or the office and tennis too. So we have found a few pieces that work amazingly well for our lifestyle straight from tasc’s new spring line. Our lives can now run a bit more seamlessly in all the chaos.
What he said…
He chose a lightweight striped polo (the air stretch polo) and navy pants (the performance drive pant) which are versatile enough to make days at the office comfortable and move on to play a round of golf. Date night? – no problem, this set can easily double as a date night outfit. He plans to take the air stretch polo to the tennis court next – an easy transition from the office to the gym. The pants exhibit a soft and smooth fabric and he says there is enough stretch to make athletic movement easy. The shirt is so soft and light he claims it’s like you’re not even wearing a shirt at all. Sweating over a deal or at the courts is not a problem in this organic fabric which is naturally anti odor and moisture wicking. Now I am in trouble for not introducing him to this line of activewear sooner (mind you, he received tasc underwear in his Christmas stocking so who is really to blame here for not doing their research).
What she said…
I chose a high waisted black legging (NOLA High Rise Legging) and a classic white racer back tank (St. Charles Racer). The leggings, created with breathable bamboo fabric, are perfect for my very active lifestyle. The tank is super soft with a weightless feel. The combo of the two is perfect for yoga, running, spin class, errands, and lounging around the house. The lightness of the legging and tank stood up to all of these activities – both sweat wicking and naturally anti odor, I felt completely comfortable through the duration of my workouts. The high waist of the leggings holds me in providing enough confidence for any athletic endeavor or task (and let’s be honest, every mom craves that high waist, magic wide band that hides your tummy). As an added bonus, the white tank and leggings are cute enough for a dressy casual affair or rocking my usual athleisure best. Now if you haven’t transitioned to “the leggings are pants” side of the debate, you may not be able to get behind my athleisure obsession, but trust me when I say that you may want to reconsider this notion once you try a pair from tasc.
Beyond the Functionality
More than checking the boxes as solid active and leisurewear, I appreciate tasc’s dedication to creating pristine, natural fabric activewear from their locally, family owned business (just right down the road in New Orleans). This means there are no added chemicals or irritant causing substances in their fabrics – now this is something my sensitive skin can get behind. And let me tell you, their fabrics are really the softest!
tasc Performance wear has undoubtedly made for the perfect match up for my husband and I. Its durability, breathability, lightweight, and soft fabrics that are naturally derived have made working out actually comfortable. What’s more, I can take my tank up a notch for a more put together and sophisticated look without much effort at all. He can do the same with a desk, to golf course, to dinner look!
