Whether we’re sprinting and lifting in the wee hours pre-work or popping over to barre class the second the clock strikes five, it’s a rare day at The Chalkboard when one of our team members isn’t fitting fitness in wherever we can. Our typical day involves a good sweat, some creative strategizing, and the eminent superfood-tasting sesh – so naturally, we need a wardrobe that multitasks just as well as we do! Thank goodness for this season’s fashion-inspired fitnesswear brands that takes us from workout to work and back again in style – Nesh NYC being right in the midst of the movement.
Nesh NYC was born when founder Bree Chambers’ yoga teacher training took an unexpected turn: she soon realized that there was a need for not just cute yoga clothes, but a lifestyle brand that could help women keep things simple without sacrificing style. Nesh seamlessly fuses the best elements of activewear, loungewear, and New York style to create a luxurious lifestyle line that can take you through your entire day from start to finish.
Just like Bree herself, Nesh NYC focuses on the sophisticated details – like mesh-paneled leggings with “seams” and lingerie-inspired sports bras to the chicest sweats we’ve ever seen – that create a holistic vision of what it truly means to live an active lifestyle. Inspired to perspire? Take a cue from Bree’s well-rounded workouts, gym bag essentials, and the mantras that keep her centered long after she rolls up her yoga mat…
