Work It! 15 Ways to Upgrade Your Workout Wardrobe
We couldn’t share a whole bunch of Brit-Approved Workout Apps without giving you some style pointers as well, could we? You have seen some of these items kicking around the Brit + Co. archive, but we’ve gathered all of them together (plus some new ones!) to serve up a roundup of the coolest, most innovative fitness apparel on the market today.
1. Nike Dri-Fit Knit Running Dress ($65): Running in a dress? It’s actually less ludicrous than it seems, and this Nike running dress is a great piece for going on a run and then meeting up with friends. It’s ultra lightweight and made with sweat-wicking fabric. Plus with this sort of ombre tie dye look, you could totally get away with rocking this to brunch.
3. Nike Pro LOCO4EVA Tights ($90): How awesome is this print?! You can’t order it online but rumor has it local Nike stores have a bit of a stockpile.
4. Silverescent Run Swiftly Top ($68): Anti-stink — need we say more? Our favorite fabric from Lululemon, Silverescent, uses X-STATIC® – The Silver Fiber®, to create an anti-bacterial material perfect for fitness garb. Whereas your standard cotton tanks tend to hold onto that yucky smell even after washing, the Silverescent line of threads inhibits bacteria growth so that you can re-wear time and time again.
5. TECHFIT Boy Shorts ($25): Made with Adidas CLIMALITE fabric, these shorts sweep sweat away from your skin with every move you make.
6. EasyTone Fitness Pant ($50): Part of Reebok’s innovative EasyTone Apparel Collection, these smokin’ fitness pants use ResisTone bands designed to create resistance as you move. On top of that, the Play Dry fabric wicks moisture, accelerates evaporation, and contours to your body for maximum support; perfect for any level of exercise.
7. Breeze by Laser Cut Skirt ($72): With two side pockets, patterned venting, and no chafing flat seams, we might want to wear this skirt for more than just working out.
8. Paloma Capri ($80): Another fun and funky print, these capri leggings would actually look pretty awesome under a sundress as well.
9. Nike Twist and Tie Shirt ($75): For a shirt that doubles as a non-workout thread, this striped number is pretty darn fetching.
10. Adidas by Stella McCartney Swimsuit ($80): Designed with asymmetrical curves that manage to complement your figure while also being secure enough for serious laps, this swimsuit takes swimwear in a decidedly fashionable direction.
11. GapFit gFast Ombre Leggings ($30): Our favorite thing about these leggings? There’s no sheen when stretched! Win.
12. Graphic Tanks ($13): Why not put words of motivation right on your shirt? These shirts from Old Navy are cute and affordable enough that you won’t feel bad sweating through a whole bunch of them.
13. Adidas Supernova Bra ($55): This bit of athletic wear has a built in heart monitor sensor made to work with Adidas’ miCoach system. While the idea is really cool, we’re not sure it makes sense for people who work out frequently and probably go through several sports bras per week.
14. Muse Racerback Hoodie ($39): We might have just bought this… it’s the perfect weekend workout apparel.
15. Kinetic Vest ($180): One of the newest and coolest types of insulating technology, KLYMIT’s NobleTek insulation uses argon gas to keep your body warm. Each vest comes with a small tank of the stable gas, and one pump should last you several months. One layer of the gas traps as much warmth as a traditional jacket that’s twice as thick. Plus, you can adjust the amount of argon in your vest as the temperature gets warmer or cooler! It’s like a personal A/C thermostat.
