The Julianne Hough x MPG Sport Collaboration Is Sure To Be Athleisure Gold — PHOTOS
Alongside being known for her fabulous dancing skills and acting chops, Julianne Hough has quite the reputation for being super athletic. One glance at her lifestyle blog, and you'll see it's full of fitness and health inspiration. It's no surprise then that her latest venture places her firmly in the world of athletic gear. According to People, Julianne Hough and MPG Sport are collaborating on an athleisure collection. The Dancing with the Stars judge will be curating gorgeous pieces for the brand, and in the future, the athleisure-loving lady might be venturing into the role of designer.
Hough's love of fitness and gear is most evident on her blog. She's been running juliannehough.com since March of 2015, and the blog has actually gotten pretty good reviews. Unlike other celebrity blogs, Hough keeps things pared down and simple, dishing out beauty, health, and lifestyle advice. It's the health advice that's really taken off though. From recipes to workout advice, it's all on her blog, and with her background in dance and love of delicious, healthy food, she's probably one of the celebs most dedicated to fitness.
Now, with a partnership with MPG Sports, Hough is embracing both her love of health and fitness and fashion. The MPG brand is chock full of gorgeous pieces that are perfect for one of the hottest trends — athleisure. With stars like Kendall Jenner rocking fashionable workout wear, there's little doubt that it's a bonafide thing now, and Hough loves it. Speaking to People, Hough says, "Athleisure apparel truly suits my lifestyle … and I need workout wear that performs but is also versatile enough for the rest of my day...MPG Sport’s desire to create fashion-inspired workout clothes that elevate your look from the gym to the rest of your day was a perfect fit for me."
Hough goes on to explain that versatility and variety are the greatest parts of fashion, and she loves that the elements have made their way into workout gear. For her spin on the versatile and varied style of athleisure, Hough chooses, "a workout pant that keeps my muscles warm, with a great feminine sports bra." Based on her Instagram, it's not hard to see that Hough is dedicated to her workouts and her workout wear — that's what makes the collab so exciting.
