It’s rare to find an activewear brand that consistently delivers fresh options for women and men. And in these days of industry obsession with dusty pastels and heathered fabrics, it’s nice to find a brand that isn’t afraid to embrace bold prints and patterns. Hence my pleasure to introduce The Upside, a brand that pulls from the best of American and Australian athletic gear trends to deliver pieces we simply cannot get enough of! Based out of Sydney, The Upside’s founders craft each collection for a “sartorially sophisticated and time savvy individual who leads a demanding life but also cherishes their training”. Given how seamlessly each piece works alone or as part of a set, and in the gym or as part of an athleisure ensemble, I think it’s fair to say they’ve hit the nail on the head. The best part of all this is that a portion of all sales go towards The Cambodian Children’s Trust, a nonprofit that invests in Cambodian communities and local leaders to rescue children from abusive orphanages and conditions. Read more about that important work here and pick up goodies for you or a man in your life ASAP, because the robust sale section means there is something for everyone!
