It's 2019 and we expect a lot from our workout gear. Forget the see-through legging scandals, the underboob issues, camel toe problems, and ill fitting gym shoes. We're way past just looking cute, and we expect real results from our expensive athletic wear.
We've tried and tested the below brands, and they pass our tests for both low impact and high impact workouts.
Fashion-forward for the active woman, Koral is our kind of brand. We always believe that you get what you pay for, so like many things in life, invest in quality over quantity, and buy smart.
Like we said, we've pre-tested this brand, so you can be sure that you're getting high-quality workout clothes from this company.
These high-rise shorts are our personal favorites, and if shorts aren't your thing, Koral offers this camo print in a high-rise legging as well.
Outdoor Voices is a New York brand that's all about performance. Whether you're walking your dog or running a marathon, Outdoor Voices will make you feel comfortable doing it.
We are particularly fond of the brand's 'slashback' crop top. It's a tight fit, but it's SUPPOSED to be that way. If you're in between sizes, order 1 size up. This crop top doubles as a sports bra and it will hold your girls in without any spillage or discomfort.
Make sure to get the matching leggings, which are made with a snug compression fit for muscle recovery. Again, these are supposed to be TIGHT. We recommend sizing up, and you shouldn't have any problems!
Outdoor Voices is being compared to mega-brand Lululemon, and we think they may be winning the race.
For the woman who wants to yoga in style, Alo Yoga has the best yoga pants out right now. Besides just yoga pants, Alo Yoga also offers women's tank tops, base layers, t-shirts, sports bras— basically anything that you'll need to attend a yoga class. Alo Yoga has you covered.
Besides your typical workout clothing, Alo Yoga also has a nice selection of cold weather clothes specifically designed for working out.
And it's worth mentioning that the company is 100% sweatshop free and eco-aware. We believe in sustainable clothing— so we wrote an article on it <- check it out!
Under Armour is still an American favorite, and with it's dri-fit properties and epic selection of gym clothes and other styles, we have to agree that the brand has a right to stand the test of time (23 years to be exact).
How chic is this mesh panel active jacket?
And if you're looking for a black mesh option, opt for these sleek 'vanish' leggings.
We bet you've heard of this brand, but never gave them a shot. Are we right? Asics is a Japanese shoe company that constantly pushes itself in the innovation market. Runners love Asics running shoes and we couldn't agree more after putting a few pairs on!
Known for being lightweight, durable, comfortable, and offering their famous gel cushioning, it's kind of surprising how stylish these sneakers are for all of their functionalities.
Fashion-forward but make it moisture-wicking
