The One Piece – Yoga
We fully believe in the power that the perfect outfit has to make us actually want to move our bodies and if there’s any trend in yoga that’ll undoubtedly do the trick, it’s definitely the one piece. Whether you call it a jumpsuit, a bodysuit or an onesie – you’ll find this style popping up in yoga studios and on Instagram feeds everywhere. It’s one of the most effortless activewear pieces you’ll ever find, so you can spend your energy actually stretching, rather than figuring out how to do so in style. Cop the retro look that fashion girls everywhere are sporting by styling it with a cute scrunchie, long socks and trendy sneakers.

The Half Zip – Running
Out of all the styles we could wear while running, the half zip wins the race to be our favorite by a long shot. If you’re on the hunt for a piece that combines functional and fashionable, the half zip jacket was practically made for you. The mock neck and zipped up design help block out cold air, so it keeps you comfortable during chilly morning runs. While it was made to be worn while breaking a sweat, it can certainly be styled for any occasion. Pair it with a baseball cap, a pair of leggings and your favorite sneakers for a look that’ll keep you looking good long after your run is over.

The Stirrup Leggings – Exercising Our Credit Cards
One of the reasons why activewear is so openly embraced by fashion lovers everywhere is the fact that it can be worn almost anywhere and for almost anything. Whether we’re stretching or shopping, we can always count on activewear to provide the perfect look, depending on how we style it. Call us crazy, but as far as we’re concerned, exercising our credit cards still counts as exercise! So if you’re looking for an activewear trend that can take you from the shops to your spin class and back again, look no further than the stirrup legging. Stirrup leggings are the ultimate trend in athleisure. While they’ve been worn by horseback riders and ballerinas since the 1900s, they’re now being styled into even the most luxe activewear looks. The wraparound detail offers a chic update on traditional leggings and effortlessly elongates your legs. We love to team them up with a pair of designer sneakers and a fashion-forward jacket for an elevated athleisure look that you can wear anywhere. Whether you wear them for a morning gym session, for a night on the town, or for both, this piece is sure to polish off your look in a snap.
