Whether you’re a seasoned exercise buff or newbie to the gym attire for women scene, the right workout gear can improve your performance by allowing for more flexibility and support in different areas of your body. But what’s equally important is choosing comfortable and flattering styles that you want to wear — particularly on a bleary-eyed morning when you just need to get out the door and hit the gym.
Fortunately, there’s no shortage of stylish options to help you do just that. The athleisure space has been booming with fun options that also happen to be comfortable and practical. For example, Outdoor Voices kicked the athleisure trend into high gear with its pastel color-block leggings and continues to offer a range of flattering crop tops and skorts (including a cute mesh option). Alo Yoga has leggings that are perfect for running or doing a quick vinyasa class at your favorite studio. The high-waist Airbrush leggings, in particular, are a fan-favorite (it’s been spotted on celebs like Gigi Hadid) for its soft fabric, moisture-wicking antimicrobial technology, and forgiving fit.

And if you’re looking to stock up on shorts that are great for both running and yoga, consider checking out Gap’s sister brand Athleta. The brand’s breathable and stretchy Active Stretch Shorts come in multiple lengths to suit your needs, plus feature sweat-wicking material that helps nip chafing in the bud. Meanwhile, the Athleta Essential Shorts have thumb holes and a stretchy waistband that won’t dig into your midsection or slip with every move.
