It’s no secret that one of my favorite fashion brands to shop is Abercrombie. I will admit that I wasn’t much into the brand in my teenage year due to the reputation that it had, but as things shifted in the brand and my own personal style developed, I took on a love for Abercrombie style. With that love, I was so excited to discover Abercrombie’s new activewear line, YPB, because it not only gives you the comfort that you are looking for when you’re active, but it also has great style and function for every body type and form.
You may be wondering what is the hype about this line or, if you haven’t even heard the hype, what is this line in the first place. Well, if you’re either of the two, then this post will clue you in. Not only is this line amazing for athletic wear, but you can also create great athleisurewear looks.
In this post, I’ll be sharing details about what the Abercrombie YPB line is, how it fits different body types, and giving my personal review on some of the picks that I have on my favorites along with the ones that I have already purchased.

It’s a unique name to call an activewear line, but when you really understand it’s means, it’s actually quite catch and fits right with the Abercrombie brand. YPB is short for ‘YOUR PERSONAL BEST’.

HOODIES AND LAYERED PICKS
If you’re anything like me, one of the main pieces that I need in my activewear line is a number of sweatshirts, hoodies, jackets and layered pieces. Even if I am not planning on working out, I love having pieces that I can layer over sports bras, tanks and tees so that I feel comfortable heading out into the colder weather, or if I just need the option to add another layer or remove one when I need to. YPB has a number of great selections for layerable pieces including layered tees and hoodies.

Everyone loves the ability to have a seamless matching set. A great top combined with a comfortable and cute pair of leggings is always something that I have adored when it comes to having athletic wear looks. I don’t know how many times that I have picked out activewear pants and felt super annoyed that I couldn’t find any tops that matched and made the look complete. Even if I am not working out and I want to create an athleisurewear look, I want my tops and bottoms to match in order to create a dynamic look. So I’m loving how the YPB line comes with various styles and lengths of tops and bottoms in various colors and prints that match.
