There’s nothing wrong with a womens gym clothes online pair of leggings, a good sports bra, and a comfortable tank when it comes to workout apparel, but there are a number of ways you can switch up your routine. This summer, opt for one of the newest activewear trends that’s getting lots of hype: exercise dresses.
Brands like Outdoor Voices and Girlfriend Collective have made the style a staple of warm-weather exercise, but legacy athletic brands are catching on, too. Look for styles that mix the functionality of a tennis skirt with the support of a workout dress, and don’t forget about the must-haves, like breathable, sweat-wicking fabrics and handy pockets.
Lululemon: Known for its stylish and high-quality activewear, including leggings, sports bras, and tops.
Lululemon’s Align dress is a favorite of the Wishi team, thanks to its buttery-soft, weightless fabric that feels good against your skin and is easy to tuck into your weekender bag or carry-on. It’s also flattering and not overly sporty, so you can easily rewear it with sandals for a morning yoga session or after work for a hike.
Another workout dress that’s been a Wishi favorite, this pick from Alo Yoga is comfy and supportive enough for most gym classes (with the help of a layering sports bra), including barre, HIIT, and yoga. The cinched waist adds shape to the top, and the soft matte fabric zaps wetness.
The best part about this dress is that it’s machine washable, making it a quick and easy way to freshen up for errands, brunch with friends, or even to wear on an all-day walking tour. Plus, reviewers say it’s a great fit—nothing too tight or too loose.
