If there’s one recent development in casual wear that we can get behind, it’s athleisure. And you don’t have to like the term to like smart clothes that merge tailored fits, activity-ready stretch, and technical fabrics. Best of all, they don’t look like gym gear. Brands including Aeance, Pair of Thieves, Kit and Ace, Rhone, and Lululemon are creating clothes that pull off the impossible: You feel relaxed and appear put together at the same time.
Autumn Cashmere Hoodie
The weekend staple gets a luxurious (and cozy) upgrade in cashmere. [$396; autumncashmere.com]
Kit and Ace Denman Button Up
A dress shirt with plenty of stretch that’s machine washable? Sold.
Lululemon Core Long Sleeve
Pima cotton makes it soft; silver in the fibers repels your odor.
Aeance Short Sleeve Jersey
It might look like an ordinary T-shirt, but its fabric is a technical blend of merino wool and nylon that wicks away moisture.
Revo Explorer Pant
This super-stretchy blend promotes lounging without looking, you know, loungy.
Adidas Pure Boost ZG Prime
Built to run — or to fetch the paper.
Pair of Thieves Socks
