One of the best parts of working at Pinks and Greens is the time we spend talking to our customers. One thing we’ve heard a lot lately is that you like to run — whether it’s a few miles on the treadmill, incorporating it into your cross-training, or going all out to prepare for a 5k or marathon, we know you need clothes that help you perform your best but don’t have the time to spend searching and shopping for the best brands and styles. That’s why we’re so excited to introduce our new running apparel shop! We’ve spent hours researching the latest offerings from the newest designers to time-tested brands to bring you a unique collection of our favorite running apparel. Each item has been personally selected to meet our standards for fit, performance and style! We’ve brought everything together under one roof so the only workout you’ll get is when you’re running! And, as always, we’ve tried on everything, so we can answer all your questions on running apparel sizing, fabric, and function.
PG STYLIST’S PICK: OISELLE
One of our absolute favorite brands for running apparel is Oiselle. When founder Sally Bergesen couldn’t find a pair of running shorts that didn’t make her look three months pregnant, she decided it was time to create her own pair, resulting in the launch of a running apparel company focused solely on women. We love her entrepreneurial spirit, and we love her clothes even more.
PORTMAN RUNNING TIGHTS
Our favorite full-length women’s running pants this season are the Oiselle Portman running tights. Made from super soft Nyelle compression fabric, these running pants get softer with every wash. Nyelle is durable, made for movement, and can withstand your toughest workout. These running pants feature not one but TWO zip pockets on the waist, big enough to hold a smartphone, money, or a key. The pin-tuck and seam details on the legs make these so stylish no one would guess they are running pants, and the plum color is gorgeous and on-trend this season. With a 26.25 inseam (measured on size 4) these are great for those who like a full-length running pant. Not a fan of plum? These also come in basic black, too.
AERO RUNNING TIGHT & POCKET JOGGER RUNNING CAPRI
If you’re more into an ankle-length running pant, then look no further than the Oiselle Aero tight (left). These running pants also feature the same amazing Nyelle fabric, pin-tuck and seam details, and have a rear zip pocket for all your essentials. These high-waisted leggings come in a 24” inseam (measured on size 4), and the length increases approximately ½ – ¾ inch per size making these a great option for someone who is looking for a running pant that hits just above the ankle. These also come in slate blue. When it comes to capri length, we love the Oiselle Pocket Jogger Running capri (right). These running pants come in slate and black, are high-waisted, and have the same amazing seam and stitching detail as the other running pants are also made of Nyelle. Featuring three(!) waistband pockets — one with a zipper — and one side leg pocket, you’ll never worry about a place to stash your stuff. And the mesh panels behind the knee are so on-trend this season. A true capri length, these running pants measure 18” in the size 4.
FLY FLYTE LONG-SLEEVED SHIRT AND RUNNING TANK
And no outfit would be complete without a great looking running top. When it comes to women’s tanks, we love the Oiselle Fly Flyte running tank (right) which comes in this beautiful Snap orange as well as this go-with-everything black charcoal color. The seamless fabric is lighter, softer, and not super clingy. Its wicking antimicrobial knit is a runner’s best friend. Plus the bird jacquard and “fly” type on the back gives some lift under your wings! Need something with longer sleeves for those cool morning and evening runs? Then look no further than Oiselle’s Fly Flyte Long Sleeve running shirt (left). This long sleeve running shirt is made of the same seamless fabric at the tank that is light as flight, soft and never clingy. This is a great layering piece that is essential on cold weather days.
In addition to Oiselle, we’ve got lots of great other running apparel styles from brands such as TLF, MPG, Tasc and New Balance. Check out these and more in our brand new running apparel shop here: Pinks and Greens Running Apparel Shop
