Girlfriend Collective Review: 5 SELF Editors Put The Brand’s Newest Line to the Test

Athleisure is my go-to selection for work now that I earn a living from home full-time. I can solely describe the fabric as scrumptious: It’s tremendous delicate and stretchy, and so comfortable that I forgot I used to be even sporting garments. I went to the flicks on this set, and it felt like I used to be sporting pajamas. The fabric is breathable and light-weight, which shall be good for the upcoming hotter months. 

There are a couple of downsides, nonetheless. The pants ($88) are too lengthy on my 5'4″ body. If I pull them as much as be higher-waisted, I get the dreaded entrance wedgie. But when I go away the pants round my hips, I journey over the wide-leg bottoms. I additionally didn't like how cropped the observe jacket ($98) was. I want a jacket that’s comfy however doesn’t present my whole abdomen.

This was my first time attempting something from Girlfriend Collective, and I used to be instantly impressed with how the observe pants ($88) match and felt. I’m 5'3″ and so they hit my superb high-waist top (totally masking my stomach button) and have a brilliant delicate, weightless really feel all through the roomy, wide-cut legs. At first, they appeared luxurious and well worth the high-end athleisure value. I beloved how billowy and breezy they had been whereas sporting them round my residence, however shortly observed their flaws when sporting them on a stroll. They’re simply too lengthy, and dwelling in a metropolis the place there’s a pile of poop, pee, or trash each couple of toes made me keenly conscious of what I may very well be dragging residence with me on the hem of those pants. (I wound up tucking them into my socks simply to be protected, which was not a trendy selection.) These are a number of the comfiest pants I’ve worn in a very long time, and I anticipate I’ll get pleasure from sporting them year-round, however for me, they're most positively for indoor use solely. 

The windbreaker ($98) is a little bit of a thriller to me. The cropped size is awkward, and it has a slouchy, structureless match. That is in all probability due partially to how delicate and light-weight the material is, which is a plus when you simply need a tremendous mild layer, but it surely doesn’t make the jacket really feel prefer it’d be helpful in…any type of climate, actually. I do recognize the variety of pockets (two zippered exterior ones and two inside ones), however I wouldn’t belief them to carry something notably heavy or priceless as a result of, once more, the material is so flimsy. In all honesty, I in all probability gained’t use this jacket for greater than operating to my mailbox in very gentle climate.

I’m 5'2″ and usually go for a free match so I attempted the windbreaker jacket and shorts in measurement medium. Whereas the bottoms had been slightly cosy—the inseam is on the shorter aspect so I felt slightly uncovered on the again—the jacket match completely. It was additionally free sufficient that I might put on a shirt or a sweatshirt beneath or I might tie the drawstring for a tighter match. Although I like a matching set, the jacket was simpler to put on with absolutely anything than the shorts, so I do know I’ll be reaching for it extra in my closet. It’s turn into my go-to for operating errands, strolling my canine, or working from residence.
