If winter is the holiday season, summer is definitely workout season. Not only is the weather perfect for long runs, hiking, swimming, beach volleyball and so much more but it’s also the time to show off tones arms and legs. If you’re like me, you’re a bit more motivated to work out when you have something fun to wear. Here are some of my picks for the season’s best fitness apparel and accessories:
Say it with your workout — and your workout tank! I love a fun statement tank or tee for summer workouts, especially with motivational phrases. How could you not pump up the workout volume with a tank this cool?
Track every step and calorie with this sporty yet chic fitness tracket from Michael Kors. I love the sporty style of this silicone strap and sophistication of the stainless steel face. You’ll want to wear it long after your workout is over!
Leave it to Calvin Klein to bring back the 90s with a modern edge. This crossback sports bra is cool and sexy, thanks to its contemporary strappy back but the bold Calvin Klein logo harkens back to the era of Marky Mark. Wear it alone with a cute hoodie vest or under your favorite tank.
While I usually opt for black leggings and crops in the cooler months, I love a fun splash of color and print for spring and summer. These mixed media Jessica Simpson leggings are a cool mix of color, florals and stripes — and great for both workouts and casual athleisure weekends.
When the temps are a bit too high for classic hoodies, a mesh hoodie is a light and airy alternative. This Tommy Hilfiger Sport hoodie looks great over a sports bra or tank, and adds the perfect light layer for walks to and from the gym.
I love a splash of color on an athletic shoe. This lightweight sneaker from Under Armour comes in a variety of colors (the rhino grey is my fav!) and is a great choice for indoor and outdoor workouts. Plus, the breathable mesh allows for increased ventilation — a nice perk on hot summer days.
What choice do you have but to be utterly fabulous when your water bottle tells you to do exactly that? I am a huge fan of stainless steel water bottles — especially those that are BPA and lead free. Why waste a plastic bottle when you can simply refill yours, and add a little more style to your fitness fashion game?
Now that you’ve got the gear, it’s time to work it out!
