Whether you ID as a yogi or a yummy mummy, jet from studio or school in the voluminous wide-leg track pants by G. Sport, the luxury athletic line from Gwyneth Paltrow. Made in Italy, the pants feature a drawstring elastic waistband to cinch high or low, so you can swap looks in a snap. $370, goop.com

Skip disposable water bottles in favour of the Memobottle, a durable BPA-free and Cradle to Cradle–certified plastic option that slides easily into bags and back pockets. Clear skin, clear conscience. From $40, secretlocation.ca

When it comes to sneakers, the line between hypebeast and your grandpa is a thin one. Allbirds manages it well with its Potrero Pewter runner made from superfine New Zealand merino wool. It’s water-resistant and temperature-regulating, too, with laces crafted from post-consumer recycled polyester. $135, allbirds.ca

Don’t sweat the small—or big—stuff with Cashmere Mist jasmine-and-sandalwood-scented antiperspirant from Donna Karan (yes, that Donna Karan). This cult fave deodorant may have launched in 1992, but it’s still the number one best-selling luxury beauty product in the U.S. today. $34, thebay.com

Active sitting sounds like an oxymoron, but with Technogym’s spine-stabilizing wellness ball you can work or sit comfortably while still training your back and core muscles for better posture and strengthening. The ball—made in Italy and equipped with an antibacterial zippered cover—is phthalate-free, latex-free and recyclable. $335, livingspace.com
