Color blocking

Color blocking adds life to the basic grays and blacks that have dominated athletic wear. Bright stripes, bold patchwork, and color chunks add vibrancy to your wardrobe and your workout. Jump into this trend with a bold color-blocked top or test the waters with neutral pants with colored-blocked calves.

Mesh panels

Mesh panel pants were a huge trend in 2018 and now our favorite mesh panels are coming to tops and sports bras. A perfect example of fashion and function, mesh panels provide breathability and sexiness. Chic cutouts draw attention wherever they are, giving us style and proper ventilation.

Brightly colored shoes

They say history repeats itself, and fashion has proven that over and over. The bright colors of the eighties are making their way around, this time on your feet. Sherbert-colored sneakers in shades of orange, green, and yellow are taking over shoe racks. And with so much black gym apparel, (hey, it’s slimming!), it’s nice to add a pop of color.

Branded Bands

Branded bands on sports bras, pant waistbands, and pant sides showcase your athletic side and your favorite brand.

Track is Back

Remember those ninety tracksuits? Well, they are making a comeback. This time around they are more fitted and flattering with the same level of comfort. Mix and match track cropped jackets with workout leggings, or choose pieces of the same pattern for a pulled-together look.

Sparkle as you sweat with metallic prints. These shiny statement pieces will make you feel fancy as you workout. From metallic jackets to sports bras, this shiny trend is everywhere, giving activewear a glossy finish. All-over glossy pants too much for you? Try a workout bag or water bottle to make you feel like a star.

Bike Shorts

Not just for cycling, these shorts are great for yoga, tennis, or cardio. They are high-waisted for a lifting and sculpting look that can be paired with an oversized tee or crop top.
