Walk down the street or gear up for a yoga class and you’re sure to spot a pair of Booty By Brabants leggings.

These versatile leggings, characterized by their textured material and made in almost every color of the rainbow, were created by local fitness instructor Kelly Brabants and inspired by the culture of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. They are one-size-fits-most and now the athleisure company is launching a brand new line: the ‘Not Your Average BBBasic’ collection.

The collection, available May 18 at 9 a.m., is an addition to the Street Style line that was created based off the idea that basic clothing doesn’t have to be boring. It includes high-waisted leggings, ’90s-inspired bike shorts, and matching crop tops.

“It has taken me seven months to perfect this collection and to feel 100 percent confident that each silhouette would look and feel amazing on everyone,” Brabants said in a press release. “I believe that women should wear what makes them feel sexiest and a lot of the time, the most comfortable and ‘basic’ wardrobe additions are the ones that allow you to look your best, because you feel your best.”

What’s included in the line:

Not Your Average BBBasic Leggings: In three colors (black, heather grey, and dark grey), ultra-high waisted, one size fits most, $85.

Not Your Average BBBasic Bike Shorts: In three colors (black, heather grey, and dark grey), mid-waist, seamless, $45. Check these out on celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid.

Not Your Average BBBasic Top: In three colors (black, heather grey, and dark grey), one size fits most, crop top with an open back design, $42.

In addition to the new line, the Booty By Brabants website is getting a makeover and will be up and running on May 18. If you spend $150 that day, the company will include a free Booty By Brabants baseball hat (while supplies last). They aren’t stopping there, either: Four new colors will also be added to the original leggings line including mauve, teal green, navy blue, and hot pink. The clothes are only available online for now, but you can check the Booty by Brabants Instagram account for upcoming local trunk shows.
