With “athleisure” being the fashion buzzword on the lips of everyone from mega-designer Cynthia Rowley to “Project Runway Allstars” host Alyssa Milano, workout wear is having a serious moment right now. Read up on 6 trends to look for when suiting up for your next fitness feat.
MESH IT UP
Mesh insets on workout wear of all kinds is hot as can be right now. Diagonal panels add interest to solid black leggings, while mesh inserts along the neckline, shoulder straps or back racerback detail add a dose of flair, especially in a bright color such as cobalt blue or coral.
TURN YOUR BACK
Eye-catching back details such as multi-strap sports bras look stylishly sporty when you’re doing lat pull-downs at the gym or downward-facing dogs in the yoga studio.
A tank in a looser-fitting style that floats away from the waistline is the perfect layering piece to top off that sports bra with a pretty back detail. Mix and match contrasting bright colors for a high-energy look.
CUT IT OUT
Keyholes and cut-outs add interest to otherwise basic styles such as full-length leggings and short-sleeve tops.
WAIST NOT, WANT NOT
Basic black workout pants get a dose of personality thanks to contrast waistbands.Options range from abstract swirls of color on running tights to a classic stripe or polka dot on fold-over yoga pants
SHOW SOME MUSCLE
Muscle tees are a fun, casual addition to your standard gym outfit. Bonus points for a clever saying printed on the front–have fun and don’t take it too seriously!
