Long gone are the days of working out in oversized sweatshirts and baggy gym shorts. Whether you’re taking a walk around the neighborhood, dancing at the studio, hitting the slopes, or killin’ it at the gym, there’s a sporty line of clothing that’s perfect for every occasion.
At the studio
Oiselle may make clothing for runners, but that doesn’t mean you can enjoy their apparel at the studio, too. We love this long-sleeve Flyte tee featuring soft fabric, color-on-color detailing, and a longer fit through the torso and arms.
Linge Ballet Flats, $59
Most shoes aren’t designed to take you from the studio to your everyday life, but the genuine leather Linge Ballet Flats do just that. Enjoy a Pilates or barre class while wearing the flats, then keep them on when you meet your friends for post-workout coffee. Not only are they pliable and comfortable, they come in 12 vibrant colors, too.
Jo+Jax J-Slims, $49
Designed for dancers, but perfect for any workout, these slim-fitting dance pants fit through the thigh with a flare at the knee. The fabric feels like a second skin, and the extra length makes them perfect for women of every height. Pick up a pair in all four colors to make them a staple in your workout wardrobe.
On the run
Pheel Chizel Pant, $72
Show off your animal instinct with these breathable capris from Pheel. In addition to the perfect body-hugging fit, they come in six different designs, With names like crocodile wine, black snack, leopard and zebra, you’ll have no excuse but to channel your wild side while working up a sweat.
Pheel Breeze Top, $70
This is the go-anywhere, do-anything long sleeve top that will become your favorite this winter season. Made of super-soft, breathable mesh, it offers body-skimming seams that flatter your figure and a thumb hole to keep the sleeves in place. Choose between five different colorways.
-1- Face Watch, $19
Granted, it’s not the most technical watch to hit the streets, but it is stylish and helps raise money for a cause. Each color watch is aligned with a specific charitable cause. For instance, the pink watches help raise money to provide mammograms to women in need. The red watches provide treatment to AIDS patients. There are eight different watches and eight different causes to choose between.
It’s no secret that the winter months can be brutal. On wet days that aren’t excessively cold, layer on the K-way Claudette Klassic Ombre top in fluorescent yellow and white. The bright colors will perk you up and make you more visible, while the waterproofing will keep you dry in the winter weather.
Keep your hands warm and tech-friendly by wearing the spandex touchscreen glove from U|R. The touchscreen treatment provides 5-finger device control, and because the gloves are machine washable, they can handle the sweat and snot associated with cold-weather runs.
In the snow
Helmet Huggers, $28 and up
Ski and snowboard helmets aren’t exactly known for being super stylish, but instead of resigning yourself to a head protector that only offers function, jazz things up with a Helmet Hugger. These super-cute toppers slide right over your helmet, providing you with the perfect way to look stylish while hitting the slopes.
You’re probably wondering what good a cami is when you’re hitting the slopes. The answer is simple – the Adea Extra Long Cami is the perfect base layer that doubles as the perfect apres-ski top to wear in the lodge bar. Not only is the top reversible, giving you the choice between a scoop-neck or v-neck look, but it’s made from high-quality Italian microfiber that wicks away sweat and dries quickly. Pick from eight different colors.
Why buy one jacket when you can buy three-in-one? The Free Country Terrene 3-in-1 System Jacket features a lightweight, durable outer shell and an internal polyfilled jacket. Wear them together for the ultimate weatherproofing and warmth, or wear them separately for milder winter conditions.
Bold & bright
Make a statement at the gym or in the studio by wearing the super-chic Let’s Move Sweats from Jo+Jax. They’re bold and bright, and they can be worn short or long, depending on your height. They are a slim fit, so if you like your sweats loose, go ahead and size up.
Like the Let’s Move Sweats, the Hough Sweatpants from Body Language are a staple for the gym. With fun details and a slim fit, they’re both comfortable and attractive.
We have a soft spot in our hearts for companies dedicated to doing good. NEVA Activewear employs artisans in South Asia to hand stitch every piece of apparel in their line, paying 10-times the going rate to the women in their employ. This bright pink hoodie is probably our favorite piece, and we especially love the inspirational “Be the Change” tagline stitched onto each piece. Get in on the ground floor of NEVA’s Kickstarter campaign and pick up an early bird hoodie for only $79.
When you want a fun post-workout layering piece, you can’t go wrong with Splits59’s Stance Sych-Hem Pullover. With bold colors, a relaxed fit, mesh pockets, and a hood lined with soft french terry, you may never want to take this one off.
In front of the fire
A limited-edition item, this adorable pointelle top is made of soft organic cotton. The cranberry color is perfect for fall and winter, and it makes a great base layer when heading out into the snow. Plus, a portion of every purchase goes toward low-income entrepreneurs hoping to start their own small business.
What could be more comfy and cozy than a pair of slouchy over-the-knee socks pulled on over leggings while lounging by the fire? These organic cotton socks from PACT come in a soft cream color perfectly matched to the foam on that peppermint latte you should whip up right now.
Another adorable limited-edition print from PACT, you’ll want to live in these leggings all winter. Made of 95-percent organic cotton and 5-percent elastane, the leggings feel like the softest second skin you could imagine. And at only $38, why not buy a couple pairs?
Don’t worry about pulling on a beanie to keep your ears warm! The Ponytail Hats beanies feature hidden ponytail openings at the back so you can pull your perfect pony straight through. While there are lots of colors and styles to choose from, we love the Vintage Snowflake version as the perfect apres ski hit for sitting by the fire.
