Athleisure is my go-to selection for work now that I work at home full-time. I can solely describe the fabric as scrumptious: It’s tremendous mushy and stretchy, and so cozy that I forgot I used to be even carrying garments.
I went to the films on this set, and it felt like I used to be carrying pajamas. The fabric is breathable and lightweight, which might be excellent for the upcoming hotter months.
There are just a few downsides, nevertheless. The pants ($88) are too lengthy on my 5’4″ body. If I pull them as much as be higher-waisted, I get the dreaded entrance wedgie.
But when I depart the pants round my hips, I journey over the wide-leg bottoms. I additionally didn’t like how cropped the observe jacket ($98) was. I choose a jacket that’s comfy however doesn’t present my complete abdomen.
This was my first time attempting something from Girlfriend Collective, and I used to be instantly impressed with how the observe pants ($88) match and felt.
I’m 5’3″ and so they hit my splendid high-waist peak (totally masking my stomach button) and have an excellent mushy, weightless really feel all through the roomy, wide-cut legs.
At first, they appeared luxurious and well worth the high-end athleisure value. I beloved how billowy and breezy they have been whereas carrying them round my condominium, however rapidly seen their flaws when carrying them on a stroll.
They’re simply too lengthy, and dwelling in a metropolis the place there’s a pile of poop, pee, or trash each couple of toes made me keenly conscious of what I could possibly be dragging dwelling with me on the hem of those pants. (I wound up tucking them into my socks simply to be secure, which was not a trendy selection.)
These are a few of the comfiest pants I’ve worn in a very long time, and I count on I’ll take pleasure in carrying them year-round, however for me, they’re most undoubtedly for indoor use solely.
The windbreaker ($98) is a little bit of a thriller to me. The cropped size is awkward, and it has a slouchy, structureless match.
That is in all probability due partially to how mushy and light-weight the material is, which is a plus for those who simply desire a tremendous gentle layer, however it doesn’t make the jacket really feel prefer it’d be helpful in…any type of climate, actually.
I do recognize the variety of pockets (two zippered exterior ones and two inside ones), however I wouldn’t belief them to carry something notably heavy or precious as a result of, once more, the material is so flimsy.
In all honesty, I in all probability received’t use this jacket for greater than working to my mailbox in very gentle climate.

This was my first time testing Girlfriend Collective attire, and I used to be pleasantly shocked by this line’s buttery-soft, light-weight material.
I’m 5’2″ and usually go for a free match so I attempted the windbreaker jacket and shorts in measurement medium.
Whereas the bottoms have been just a little cosy—the inseam is on the shorter aspect so I felt just a little uncovered on the again—the jacket match completely.
It was additionally free sufficient that I might put on a shirt or a sweatshirt beneath or I might tie the drawstring for a tighter match.
Although I really like a matching set, the jacket was simpler to put on with absolutely anything than the shorts, so I do know I’ll be reaching for it extra in my closet.
It’s turn out to be my go-to for working errands, strolling my canine, or working from dwelling.
