Fashion means different things to different people.
Some women are inspired or motivated to acquire clothing from high end brands, so they can tell their friends all about their purchases and how cool they are for having, and wearing, these styles. “Yes, dahhhling…I paid a fortune for it.”
For other women, it’s not about the label, it’s about comfort and compatibility with their personal style, and they’re willing to pay for that comfort.
Still others are happy to zoom by the clothing displays at Costco and grab the latest sale item, proper fit or not. The price works.
But, how about those who would love to own high-quality, well-made clothing yet their budget dictates otherwise?
Well, my friend, that is where Quince steps in.
Quince is an online retailer created by a team of insightful folks who envisioned a brand that would offer high-quality essentials for you and your home, at prices within reach of most. Yes, affordable women’s fashion as well as clothing for men, kids, babies, and awesome choices for your home, too.
They reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in receiving a few of their Spring Activewear pieces and sharing my experience with you. Of course I said yes. 🙂

Quince: The Philosophy
It’s helpful to understand what a brand stands for and how they approach the creation and acquisition of their products. For many women, the opportunity to align themselves and support a brand that is consistent with their own philosophy is part of the decision-making process.
Quince takes this approach to the products they offer:
- QUALITY shouldn’t be a luxury. Their products stand the test of time because of the premium materials and designs selected, so they should last longer and feel nicer.
- SUSTAINABILITY is foremost, and as much as possible, they choose organic materials utilizing producers with ethical business practices. They always have an eye on being environmentally conscientious.
- AFFORDABILITY means that everyone should have access to nice things. Their factory-direct model reduces costs by eliminating the supply-chain middleman.
What does this mean to you as a potential purchaser of products from Quince? This is my interpretation: You’ll get a better product that is ethically and sustainably made at a price that is lower than most other sources.
So, if you are searching for a better product for yourself or your home, but are limited by the budget from purchasing high-end, high-cost products, Quince may very well be the source that brings them within reach.
Quince was created to challenge the existing idea that nice things have to cost a lot.
The Activewear Collection from Quince: My Review
I chose these three pieces from their Activewear Collection:
Flowknit Ultra-Soft Performance Tee – I love the detailing on this soft and comfy tee. It’s quick drying, moisture wicking, and has just enough stretch to move with me. Cool detail: The Premium-weight Flowknit fabric is made from approximately 20 water bottles.
The double stitching on the sleeves and around the bottom gives it a nicely finished look for wearing on the outside.
Check out the product page for this (or any other product found on Quince) and you’ll find a comparison chart with other higher end brands, to let you know how much you’re saving and the additional benefits of ordering from Quince.
Flowknit Altra-Soft Performance Full Zip Hoodie – The first thing I noticed when I put this hoodie on was how soft and comfortable it was. The fabric is amazing; it’s made from 88% recycled polyester and 12% spandex. As with the t-shirt above, the fabric is quick drying, moisture wicking and has 4-way stretch. That means extra comfort!
If pockets are a necessity for you (they are for me), you’ll find two front pouch pockets and a secure zip pocket. Perfect!
Quince offers joggers that complete the look, too.
Performance Tech Wide Leg Pant – I chose these wide leg pants because they looked cool and fun, and I could see the versatility in them. From casual to a bit more dressy, they fit right in!
These cropped pants are made from 88% recycled polyester and 12% spandex, with a silky smooth feel. I love the pockets (yes, pockets always catch my eye!), with 2 front and 2 back pockets. The back pockets have a zip closure, and there’s also a front zip coin pocket.
They offer UPF 50 sun protection as well as a breathable, wrinkle-resistant fabric.
I love the fact that these cropped pants are so versatile. If I want to pair them with the two pieces shown above, or with a tank top and sweater, or any number of other outfit options, they fit right into the plan.
For this post I chose to show how they can work to go from casual to a little bit more dressy:
For You, Your Home, Your Family
Something else to love about Quince is that it offers products for you, your family, and your home. Something for everyone.
