8 active wear trends to up your workout style game

Follow these active wear trends to look fit and chic

A fashionable workout outfit can make you look good, feel great and provide that extra bit
of motivation so you can get your sweat on. If you’re ready to up your exercising style
game, look into some of these hot new trends for summer.
Work out like a dancer
Barre classes—a workout program that combines Pilates, yoga and ballet barre strengthbuilding
techniques—is one of the latest fitness trends. It has inspired new lines of active
wear reminiscent of a ballerina’s elegant practice look. Try long sleeve leotards, fitted tshirts,
knitted shorts in classic ballet hues: creams, pale pinks and mauve.
Rebooted sweat pants
No more drawstring waistbands and saggy fitting pant legs with elasticized ankles. Sweat
pants are cut with modern styling: low-rise and ankle length with a skinny silhouette. The
fabric is still super stretchy for comfort and easy movement.
Tailoring is in
Tired of body clinging styles? This summer go with more tailored workout gear in classic
colors: charcoal, black, navy, and white. The lines of these jackets, tanks and shorts are
so sleek and chic you might find yourself wearing them more for socializing than
Vibrant color
For the adventurous, riots of color are just the thing for you. Pair tanks, fitted tees and
loose-fitting cropped tops in solid orange, yellow and red or colorful prints with dark
Bold sports bras
Sports bras do more than just offer support. They come in intricate cuts, have geometric
and woven straps and updated racerback styles. Colors range from metallics, bright
primary colors, and patterns. If you can rock the body confidence, wear one by itself. Or if
you’re more demure, layer a wispy tank over it.
Tribal graphic prints
Workout leggings come in a variety of lengths: from knee to ankle. But forgo the black this
summer and check out bottoms in tribal prints: black and white graphical patterns with pops
of orange, aqua and yellow. Pair with a solid-color tank or tee and you’re ready to sprint
through the streets.
Smart fabrics
Active wear just got smarter. High performance fabrics smooth out and support your
shape, and have many sweat wicking and antibacterial properties. Major sports clothing
manufacturers have also developed fabrics with cooling technology. This helps prevent
overheating, which sounds perfect for summer workouts. Styles range from tanks to
shorts and long workout pants.
The wearables trend—devices worn on your wrist to track your activity and fitness levels
—continues to explode. For runners, they can track mileage, pace, elevation, heart rate,
and calories burned. “Smart fabrics” can now do something similar. Shirts embedded with
fiber-optic threads can measure your vital signs.
Get the right shoes
Whatever your fitness activity, make sure to get the proper shoes. They are necessary to
perform well, and most importantly, prevent injuries. Good athletic shoes should always
have solid cushioning, support and be constructed for the specific activity. Lucky for us,
shoe styles are off the charts when it comes to fabrics and color combos. This summer,
sneaker looks are coming straight from the runways: mixed plaids and prints, upholstery
fabrics, crocodile-embossed, and leather and mesh. Accent subdued-colored tees and
sports pants with eye-catching sneakers and your look will fly.
The perfect outfit can make you feel confident and energized. The same goes for active
wear. The exciting variety of styles and new technologies can help make you fit and
