Signs of a good week include sunshine, the perfect cold-brew-to-oat-milk ratio, and an exciting Girlfriend Collective launch. Today, the activewear and loungewear brand dropped the Stretch Woven collection, which consists of five easy-to-wear styles in a new fabric. Different from the brand’s cult-favorite Compressive or Float fabrics, Girlfriend’s Stretch Woven fabric is a durable, lightweight, slightly stretchy recycled polyester and spandex blend.
The collection includes The Short Sleeve Button Up Jumpsuit, Sleeveless Button Up Romper, Everyday Easy Shorts, Tapered Joggers, and Wrap Skort. Like all of Girlfriend Collective’s pieces, the Stretch Woven collection comes in sizes XXS to 6XL. Each piece is available in three colors (so far); you can choose from black, dark olive green, and royal blue.
Another reason to love Girlfriend Collective, besides its excellent activewear and size inclusivity, is its commitment to sustainability. Sustainability is tricky for brands to nail, especially since the best way to be eco-conscious is to, well, stop buying things. But the brand is famous for making more than 50% of its clothing and packaging out of recycled and recyclable materials (like plastic water bottles, nylon, and fishing nets). Plus, any well-loved Girlfriend activewear can be shipped back to the brand and upcycled into leggings for someone else—and you’ll get store credit in return. You can read up on the brand’s extensive sustainability efforts here.
