When you hit the gym, you want workout clothes that are cute AND functional—we get it! Here are the brands that check every box, no matter how you like to break a sweat.
From outdoor running in the elements to namaste-ing the morning away at yoga class, Nike's innovation-focused workout clothes have you covered—head to toe. Whether you're looking for a tank or a tennis skirt, a swimsuit or a hoodie, you're bound to find a color, size (Nike sells plus sizes!), and style that suits you and your chosen athletic pursuit. You can shop by outfit or item, and prices range from $25 to over $300 for outerwear. (Namaste away your back pain with these 14 yoga poses.)
No longer just about undershirts, Under Armour mixes style with the function of HeatGear® and ColdGear®, for those of us who want to take our workout clothes from sweat sesh to street. Check out the pulled-together looks, including accessories by activity, that make it easy to stay on trend, on the treadmill, or Tabata training.
It may be performance-based, but gear from Adidas totally gets your look popping. From pastel camo leggings to a glittering, gold logo sweatshirt, this budget-friendly brand partners with designers like Stella McCartney and celebs like Karlie Kloss to create outfits for the fashionista in every athlete.
This London-based brand's focus is fit, fabric, and high-fashion, so you look and feel great while you sweat and beyond. Sweaty Betty pieces can be pricey (T-shirts for $115!), but you're paying for features you won't see anywhere else, like asymmetric mesh panels and brave, bold patterns. Available in a full range of sizes from XXS to XL, this is no ordinary workout wear.
Mindful, movement-inspired yoga pieces drive Alo's brand purpose. But yogis want to look good too, which is why each piece in the Alo collection lifts, shapes, and compresses the body, making it ideal on or off the mat. Of course, sporting the fliest outfits in yoga class will cost you. Some pants styles are over $100. But throw on a $168 Idol Bomber Jacket after class, and you'll look so hip, you'll forget all about the price tag.
This well-known brand's dedication to pushing the human body to its limits is behind the functional fitness gear you'll find at Reebok. But Reebok is also pushing the limits when it comes to fashion, while keeping its full line of pants, tops, bras, hoodies, and more affordable and accessible with basic shapes and colors for everyday workouts. (Push yourself to your limits with this 30-day push-up challenge.)
You're thinking shoes, right? Well, yes, but there's more to New Balance than footwear. This brand is all about helping athletes of all levels perform their best. From studio tights to windbreakers, New Balance is a one-stop-shop for moderately priced workout wear. P.S.: J Crew collaborated on many pieces to infuse fashion into function in a most delightful way.
Yoga wear and whimsy wed with Onzie pieces that are created to flatter as they function. Free-Flow Fabric Technology works to keep you cool, whether you fancy hot yoga, Pilates, or even a swim. The brand features one pieces and separates, and many styles are intricately detailed with lace, sexy cut-outs, and notice-me prints. Prices won't cause sticker shock, either. (If you like looking sexy while you sweat, you'll love these "Hot Workout Clothes to Get You in the Gym ASAP.")
If functionality is key, Asics is the brand for you. Shop by sport or item to find the right shoe, sock, Capris, tank, or gloves to fit your needs. Your wallet won't hate you either, and you will certainly satisfy your sense that workout clothes don't have to be complex to get the job done.
This brand prides itself on fitting bodies that like to move like a glove. Whether you've fallen in love with yoga or running, Lucy has you covered, including into extended sizes. Moderately priced and available in both cheeky, bold styles and everyday neutral color palettes, Lucy Activewear features luxe-feeling materials that also make sense for real life.
