Yoga Essentials:

  • Printed leggings
  • Bralettes
  • Pullover top or hoodie

Stylist Tip: Wear a jacket over a hoodie for a cool, casual look on the way to and from the studio.

Hit the ground running with performance wear that can keep up. Make sure to dress in the right shoes (to avoid injuries), full-coverage tops (for extra support) and fitted pants (to avoid sagging!) during your workout.

Running essentials:

  • Breathable tees
  • Comfy sneakers
  • Cropped leggings

Stylist Tip: A tee, baseball cap or sneakers can add a punchy detail to your sporty ensemble.

What to wear to the gym

Turn your gym clothes into a fashion statement by mixing and matching your favorite tops, bottoms and footwear. Wearing a printed tee? Go for classic black leggings. Wearing a black tank? Add a pop of color with a bralette. Change up all your outfits each gym session to keep things fun!

Gym workout essentials

  • Trendy sneakers
  • Loose tees
  • Sports bras 

Stylist Tip: Backpacks are a fashionable and functional accessory for storing your water bottle, towel and sweatshirt!

What to wear for your high-intensity workout

Even the most intense workouts at Barry’s or SoulCycle can benefit from a style boost. Keep your concentration by avoiding super loose tops and pants and instead go for true performance wear and innovative fabrics with wicking or cooling fabrics.

High-intensity workout essentials

  • Performance leggings
  • Fitted tops
  • Supportive bralettes

Stylist Tip: Leggings from just anywhere may be see-through when you bend! Invest in true performance fabrics with spandex, which will stretch with your body and keep you covered, even with your most intricate moves!

What to wear for a hike 

Planning to hike through the mountains? While you’re exploring the great outdoors, you’ll want to be stylish, but comfortable and protected from the sun too! Grab a comfortable pair of leggings, a breathable top (nothing beats fabric with sweat-wicking properties) and a light, windproof jacket as you explore the great outdoors.

Hiking essentials

  • Trendy leggings (try ones with mesh panels, ribbing, or cut-outs!)
  • Breathable tops
  • Wind-resistant jacket

Stylist Tip: High-rise leggings stay nice and secure, avoiding sag and keeping your shape!
