Most of us haven't been able to go to the gym for a while, but that hasn't stopped us from spending our days buying the best workout clothes like there's no tomorrow. So we're super excited that one of the best sustainable fashion brands, Reformation,  has launched their first activewear line!

We're used to obsessing over the brand's gorgeous and sustainable dresses and shirts, but with more of us working from home and looking for comfy loungewear as our go-to wardrobe when we wake up, the company's new Ref Active range is just perfect. 

The collection, which includes gym leggings, sports bras and athletic shorts, features sizes from XS to XL and an array of bright colors, including hot coral and pine green.

Reformation's new line joins a host of other activewear brands, such as Girlfriend Collective and TALA, that are use solely sustainable materials in their collections. The new bras and leggings are made from a material called Repreve, a poly yarn fabric created with 100-percent recycled plastic bottles. 

The activewear collection spotlights two versions of supportive fabric: EcoStretch is designed for those who love yoga or low-impact classes (or just lounging around at home! ). If you're the type of person who can't stop moving, then their EcoMove clothes are for you, as they'll give you more support while you're doing cardio workouts and even running.

The collection starts at $72 (£52) for crop tops and goes up to $130 (£94) for their high-rise leggings. We particularly love the pine-colored EcoMove high-rise leggings—they look cozy but supportive, a fact that some gym brands never seem to get right.

As Reformation launched the line on Instagram, their fans went wild for the collection, with one commenting: "Love these styles and colors." Another commented on how "adorable" the brand's leggings and tops were.

And we agree—we can't wait to try some on!
