Serendipity Must Have

If like many you’ve resolved to step up your exercise routine this year, then Beginning is Now, an anything-but-routine activewear brand, is your new BFF. The fit and comfort of its Go Now Legging ($88) and You Bra ($58) will make you wonder where these basics have been all your life. This new endeavor by Brooke Shields is all about encouraging women of any age to live their best, fullest lives, with lots of interviews and videos on their website about easy, accessible mental and physical health practices, workouts that really work with you, and a newly introduced, thoughtfully designed activewear line.

Purchases here support Dress for Success, the organization that provides women with tools to achieve economic independence and create their own new beginnings. The Go Now Legging is high-waisted and designed to hit above the ankle, with a comfort waistband, tons of pockets, and moisture-wicking fabric that fits snug but not too snug and is soft but doesn’t stretch out and sag down. The You Bra has a side zipper, full coverage and a supportive full-front lining instead of those annoying pads that shift and fall out. Straps are convertible in case you want to go racerback.
