The Nest Does Summer: Staff Picks

jacquelyn scofield

Working at the Oiselle Nest comes with perks. The best one of all? We sit in the same room as the design team, watching them come up with the latest and greatest, from new pattern designs, updated mesh detailing, fun zipper placements, and the occasional "omg, I can't even!!" moments when something amazing comes along. It doesn't get much better than seeing these creations come to life and make their way out into the world and onto the tracks and trails...Oiselle in the wild. 

We know with new gear it's not always easy to choose, trust us. That's why we're here for you - sharing our top picks as we run head-on into summer. 


SALLY
Favorite: Pleat Tank

"This fabric is deceptively tough - even though it looks delicate. While the fabric has sheerness, the pleat design conceals in all the right places. This is definitely a tank you can wear on a run or on a date. I hang my red one in my closet - ready for either!"

BETH
Favorite: Drape Tank

"My most favorite new piece! I bought two of the Charcola just so I could rotate throughout the week! Perfect with skinny jeans and ankle booties (my go to look!) or with the Midnight Stride Shorts for hitting the trails!"

FEATHER
Favorite: Gifted Verrazano Bra and Portman Shorts 

"I whip out this secret weapon powersuit when I need to nail a really tough workout. I’m all about the rio red, podium blue color combo. Look good. Feel good. Crush it like a pro."

SYDNEY
Favorite: Mie Tank 

"The Mie Tank is my favorite this season! I love the high neckline and thin straps. This has been my go to top for yoga class this spring. Pairing it with the stride shorts makes for a great workout outfit. I love doing tempos in the strides because they help me feel race ready. I always feel fast in this outfit!"

CHRISTINE
Favorite: Lux Henley Tank 
"I could live in Lux all day, everyday and the Lux Henley Tank makes this possible! I love the soft, light-weight feel. It makes me feel fast and ready to rock and roll on workout days (especially when paired with the Endorphin Knickers!). Plus, as an added bonus, the button detailing gives it the versatility to be paired with jeans for going out on town."

LESKO 
Favorites: Layers! New Katron Vest, Trials Hoodie, Wazzie Wool Tank, Window Tee, Mesh Cap

"I'm all about layering... track meets are hot, until they're freezing! with this combo you can't go wrong, and with the wool as your base layer you'll always smell fresh and won't get that sweat chill."

JJ
Favorite: Rizzo Bikini Top and Rizzo Bikini Bottom 

"Summer starts when Oiselle Swim hits the water! Of course. I took the Rizzo Bikini on my trip to the Caribbean last month, and it was a gem. Best suit for diving, swimming, running the beach, cannonballing off a catamaran. It's the suit of summer, athletic in nature, but sassy in style."

KRISTIN
Favorite: Izumo Short Sleeve and New Lesley Knickers 

"Track workouts when it is a little chillier out - early morning workouts. I love the Izumo Short Sleeve's fabric and the New Lesley Knickers always make me feel fast and keep my muscles warm when I am doing shorter intervals on the the track. I wore this combo this week for my track workout and I felt comfortable and fast."

JENN
Favorite: Okuni Tank 

"When I first put on the Okuni tank, I was so excited with how amazing it fit and how incredibly soft the fabric is. The cut and design are awesome! I've worn it running once but prefer to wear this tank with distressed jeans or cutoff shorts and sandals. Perfect for a night out hanging with friends!"

NELLE 
Favorite: Third Eye Tank

"The Third Eye Tank is my favorite this season. I bought it in Rio Red which I love, but I'll also be buying it in Black- this would be so easy to dress up! The Plya Tech body fabric lays so nicely against your skin- never clingly. The Plya Veil fabric at your shoulders and back gives this tank gorgeous detailing."

STEPH
Favorite: Window Tee and Holepunch Distance Shorts 

"My go-to outfit for running the trails in Discovery Park, I love the super soft fabric of Window Tee in (sun) Shine yellow. The Holepunch Distance Shorts are a dream to run in and feel light-as-air."
