Long gone are the days when a woman is forced to pick between having a career or a family. These days she does everything. The modern woman has changed, and Carbon38 has created a high fashion clothing line that moves everywhere she does.

Carbon38 look we love

Snake Enya Jacket in Mint Leopard ($160); Emma Studio Top ($75); Prism Leggings ($220)

The trick? Carbon38 designs activewear and not simply fitness attire. All unique fashions can be worn to workout, run errands, binge watch Netflix, sit in on business meetings, and even hit the town on a Friday night.

With higher fashion comes higher price tags, but when you can wear the same jacket to the gym and to grab drinks with the hottie from yoga (checking you out in your fashionable fitness garb) it is all worth it.

Did you know? If you add up all the carbon atoms in a human body it is 10^28th power? Well now you do, and you also know where Carbon38 got their unique name from.

Best friends and co-founders of Carbon38, Katie Warner Johnson and Caroline Gogolak talk about the importance of feeling confident and fashionable while staying active:

“A woman should feel as excited to get dressed to go to the gym as she would putting on a cocktail dress” Johnson said. “It [Carbon38]  is a premium product so it’s a premium price, but you know so is your body. Your body is a premium product, so why not clothe it in the best stuff?”

“You can wear our products to more than just the gym” Gogolak agreed. “Our customers can pair their leggings with a motorcycle jacket or sweater and wear it long after leaving a yoga class.”

303 tested: the moto jacket ($175); triple v tee ($50); and riding pants ($120)

Did it double from the gym to the street?: Absolutely. I wore the whole outfit to a zumba class, and paired the jacket with skinny jeans and a graphic tee for happy hour.

Created just over a year ago, Carbon38 is just beginning to hit the ground running (pun intended).

“We want to get the word out” Johnson said. “There is this whole new generation of women who are wives, mothers, and entrepreneurs that need a wardrobe that moves everywhere that they do. And we want to be that wardrobe.”

Let’s face it — finding time to go to the gym can be a challenge, especially for busy women who seem to do everything. Just like getting that promotion at work, making time to stay fit should be rewarded. Splurging on some hot couture activewear is just the ticket to pushing you through the rest of the winter and straight into bikini season.

With unique designs you won’t find anywhere else, Carbon38 really puts the #RunInRunway.
