This trio of comfort-oriented activewear brands also happens to be invested in the style and quality of their goods, so you can enjoy the whole package. Who says you can’t have it all?

Betty Designs creates surfing, swimming and running attire in gorgeous, edgy textiles, each light as a feather for warm weather. Check out the styles at http://www.bettydesigns.com. It’s almost impossible to choose a favorite pattern, since each seems better than the last. If you don’t surf, these clothes may surely tempt you to give it a go. And love the running outfits!

If you take to the road as a runner, you’ll appreciate the Ecco BioM Evo RacerLite shoe. The cushioned foot-bed leaves you feeling as though you’re floating on a cloud, and the bright-lined soles are fashion-forward for spring. These will definitely get you through those endless grueling workouts. Find them at http://biom.ecco.com.

The spring clothing at Merrell is the epitome of understated comfort and design for ease of movement, encompassing summer hats, yoga pants, walking skirts and tunics, lightweight rain jackets for running, warm-weather tops, and more. Merrell also offers vegan-friendly and ventilated sports attire for spring and summer, as well as easy returns/free exchanges. Check everything out at http://www.merrell.com — there’s lots of stuff for men and children too.

Here’s to the great outdoors being your playground this spring and summer!
