Branding firm Graj + Gustavsen inks deal with Capezio and Global Brands Group to launch the first collection in fall 2021.
I'm a huge fan of Thinx period undies, so I was so excited to hear that the company just launched a new activewear line . The brand had one back in 2017, but it was discontinued to make room for this new and improved line that's specifically designed and structured for workouts. If you love wearing your workout shorts and leggings without underwear underneath, now you can walk, run, cycle, or do yoga while having your period without worrying about leaks. Thinx has four different styles: loose training shorts, fitted cycle shorts, leggings, and even a leotard (if that's your thing). They come in varying absorbencies, and they're pretty affordable. I put these Thinx products to the test, so keep reading to hear what it's like to exercise in Thinx activewear.

Calling all stylishly active men (or those aspiring to be one).
I love to workout, and I'm still reluctant to visit the gym in person. After all, the safety of hitting up a shared fitness center during the pandemic is up for debate. So for now, I've been turning to workouts I can stream from the comfort of my living room. But streaming exercise programs aren't always an easy space to navigate. You have to find an instructor you like, moves you can do, and something that doesn't require too much equipment. Some are easier than others to do from an apartment, especially a small one. Plus, when it comes to streaming, some are more expensive than others. Yes, the price range is wide: There are free fitness tutorials you can stream on YouTube, and there are those that require gear like the Peloton bike or that Mirror workout you’ve seen all over Insta. We’ve gathered up a list of some of our favorites to get you through your at-home workouts, no matter why you're doing them. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team.

When World Rugby Hall of Fame member Phaidra Knight was growing up in rural Georgia, she recalls, “girls just weren’t allowed to play football.” Throughout her youth, she circumvented this obstacle with an athlete’s dogged determination, enlisting neighbors to play one-on-one games, taking up basketball, and even cheerleading for the all-boys’ football team. Later, while completing her law degree at the University of Wisconsin, she was approached about joining the rugby team. Enticed by the sport’s blended elements of basketball and football, she went to training — and, she says, “I never looked back. I loved it, and I think part of it was the fact that I was never able to play football in this accepted environment as a kid.” Instead, Knight found herself “in this group of strong women who [thrived] on the fact that I [could] be there.” Rugby, she explains, “[fosters] a very unique camaraderie and energy that I haven’t experienced with any other sport.” Now, Knight brings that same spirit of inclusion to PSK Collective, a new line of activewear designed for women of “all shapes, sizes, ages and backgrounds” that launches today online at Walmart. The 42-piece collection borrows from both high-performing sportswear and edgy streetwear, with mesh, spandex, and French terry adorning cropped tops and roomy bottoms that will brighten up outfits both inside and outside the gym; rendered in spirited hues like royal blue, bright red, and pink. It’s also priced for access, with nothing in the collection exceeding the $70-mark, and designed to fit a variety of body types, with sizing from XS through 3X. In a nod to Knight’s career-spanning advocacy for women in the world of sports, 15% of the collection’s profits with benefit the Women’s Sports Foundation, an agency founded by pioneering female tennis player Billie Jean King, where Knight is currently president. Among other things, the WSF runs programs that promote young women’s involvement in sports and defends equality in the field. “That’s the value that I bring from rugby into this collective. No matter what size, color, creed, race, physical ability you have — there’s a place for you in the game. That’s what the PSK collective is about, inclusivity. We think everyone can find something within this collection that they identify with, or that they love.” At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.

I've never been a fan of trousers, but this checkered-print trend has me second guessing myself. Since I've been living in my sweatpants, I haven't been feeling particularly inspired to dress up or even think about wearing real pants. While I've been seeing the checkered print absolutely everywhere this year (shoutout to my fave KJ Plumb, who's created some of the most famous prints you've seen all over Instagram), I decided that it's time to cave. I particularly love that the quirky gingham print makes me feel nostalgic for early 2000s styles - which have their roots in the '50s and '60s - and a lot of the pants come in bold colors like neon green, cherry red, and baby blue. Most of the trousers also come in a wide-leg silhouette and feature a high-waist, making your legs look longer. I also love the fact that you can wear them during any season, and it's fun to wear them in the winter if you're looking for a splash of color to brighten up your mood when it's gloomy outside. If you're not sure how to style the pants, we've turned to our favorite style stars to lend you a helping hand. Scroll on to see how it's done and shop our favorite selects too.
