Athleta Girl Coming This Summer!


We are so excited to announce the launch of our new girls’ clothing line called “Athleta Girl.” The collection will be available online and in select Athleta stores across the U.S. this summer.

“Sporty is how girls are dressing today. Just like their moms, sisters, aunts and friends, they are living more active lives,” says Athleta President Nancy Green. “We see Athleta Girl as an opportunity to offer her clothes that are comfortable, stylish, high-quality, built to move and will perform for her.”

Designed for girls aged 6 to 14 years, our collection will cover a range of activities and sports, including running, soccer, dance, gymnastics, basketball and swim. We’ll also offer lifestyle pieces that are versatile enough to transition throughout girls’ busy days. You’ll see key styles from our women’s collection, including run shorts, capris and tops, along with new styles designed just for girls.

As a brand, Athleta has been active in empowering both women and girls through fitness since we started in 1998, so a girls’ line just felt like a natural step in the right direction. Elisabeth Charles, Athleta SVP of Marketing, says it best: “Our mission is to ignite a community of active, healthy, confident women and girls who empower each other to realize their limitless potential. Our new girls’ clothing line allows us to encourage healthy, active lifestyles and instill a strong sense of confidence with the next generation of girls.”

We can’t wait to show you more of what’s in store! Stay tuned on Facebook, Instagram and here on the Chi blog for more exciting news.

Yes! What took so long?! Please make long sleeve tops replete with thumbholes; my little one covets my tops wants some of her own.

My daughter was so excited when I told her. She identifies as an athlete and there is s serious lack of girls athletic clothes out there. She basically rotates between the same three outfits! I imagine we will be your best customers.

I hope l’ll be getting an Athleta Girl catalog. As a petite woman 5′ and 105 lbs. I often buy girls’ size 14 bottoms because the length is perfect on me, whereas a women’s petite 0-2 is still a tad too long.

do you know what stores are opening for the athleta girls this summer in the bay area

So great! I hope that the clothes will be generously cut — so many companies are making clothes for girls that are very thin — but many girls, including my athletic one, is round right now.

Been waiting for this line for a while. I heard it was coming out the end of April? Is that incorrect? This blog says the summer.

It has been really difficult finding age appropriate athletic clothing (particularly for golf) for my six and seven year olds in the market. I was thrilled to hear Athletas announcement! Looking forward to seeing what they have to offer.
