Since its initial launch in 2018, Outdoor Voices’ Exercise Dress has blossomed into a bona fide blockbuster for the brand. Its sleek, sporty silhouette, built-in shorts, and functional side pockets are beloved by a bevy of cool girls on the go, including Strategist editor Maxine Builder, who owns four of the dresses and considers them an indispensable part of her everyday summer wardrobe. “It’s supportive without being clingy or constrictive, which is a fancy way of saying I don’t need to wear a bra with it,” Builder writes. “It’s comfortable to wear while walking the dog and wicks away my sweat as I huff and puff around, but it’s still cute enough to roll into happy-hour drinks.” To celebrate the cult-favorite dress turning five this year, OV is offering 20 percent off all colors and styles all summer long, bringing the price down to $80 — but don’t dillydally, as sizes are already selling out.
