I'm an Editor, and These Are the 14 Workout Pieces I'm Eyeing For July
This summer, I'm getting outside and moving my body, so I need some great new workout clothes. After all, as much as I love my trusty leggings that I can always rely on, there seems to be an extra pep in my step when I have on a new piece. As an editor, I'm always shopping, so I see everything that drops almost instantaneously. With all that information, these are the 14 pieces I want to add to my cart.
What I'm into right now is brightly colored sets, a sentence I truly never thought I'd say. I'm normally partial to basic black, but there's something about the hope of this summer that's inspiring me to go for vibrant blues and purples. What can I say, they make me happy! Plus, as a former tennis player, the resurgence of tennis fashion has me thrilled. Keep on reading to shop my picks, and happy summer!
A Supportive Sports Bra: Girlfriend Collective Haze Lou Bra
The Girlfriend Collective Haze Lou Bra ($42) is at the top of my wish list. I love the color; the bright blue makes me happy. Plus, the silhouette has skinnier racerback straps that are supportive but not too bulky, and it would layer perfectly under a T-shirt or tank.
A Lightweight Legging: Girlfriend Collective Quartz Compressive High-Rise Legging
I want to pair that bra with these Girlfriend Collective Quartz Compressive High-Rise Leggings ($68). The Girlfriend Collective fabric is so comfortable and lightweight that I can wear them even when temperatures spike.
An On-Trend Tank: Beyond Yoga One and Only Shoulder Cropped Tank
I've been seeing one-shouldered sports bras, workout tanks, and dresses for a while now, and if I'm going to try the trend, it's with this Beyond Yoga One and Only Shoulder Cropped Tank ($66). The piece is made with the brand's signature Spacedye fabric, which is the most comfortable thing I've ever worn.
A Minimal Sneaker: APL TechLoom Breeze
As someone who's always gone for either a white or black sneaker, I love the look of these APL TechLoom Breeze ($200) sneakers for summer. The light pink and tan come together perfectly, and they'll look great on my leg when I'm wearing shorts or a skirt.
A Classic Tennis Skirt: Eleven by Venus Williams Can't Stop Won't Stop Skirt
This Eleven by Venus Williams Can't Stop Won't Stop Skirt ($88) has everything I need. The silhouette is adorable, and it's got pockets for tennis balls or my phone.
An Exercise Dress: Outdoor Voices Sport Dress
As a former tennis player, I used to dream of the day when something like this Outdoor Voices Sport Dress ($100) was in style, so today's my lucky day! The classic silhouette is so cute, and I love the navy. The dress is unlined, which I like because I can wear my chosen sports bra underneath, and add some shorts if I need more coverage, or a place to put my tennis balls.
A New Neutral Set: Good American Angeled Rib Leggings and Crop Top
There are days when you're over basic black, but not quite ready for a vibrant lavender. That's why we like olive; it's a color but it's not too wild, and still very wearable. The Good American Angeled Rib Leggings ($99) and matching Angled Rib Crop Top ($49) is a set I'd wear for low-impact exercise.
A Crossover Short: L*Space Carter Bike Short
If you've been on TikTok recently, you know about the discovery of a crossover waistband. It gives a v shape at the waist, and is super flattering. To pair with my new sports bra, I'm into these L*Space Carter Bike Shorts ($88).
A Vibrant Matching Set: Le Ore The Lucca Kit
If you know me, you know I love all things lavender, so when I saw this Le Ore The Lucca Kit ($130), I knew it had to be mine. The leggings have pockets (a must for me), and the strappy bra has a laser-cut detail in the back that I'm really loving.
A Classic Crop: Alo Seamless Delight High Neck Bra
As much as I'm loving color, I know I always need a few great basics in my life. This Alo Seamless Delight High Neck Bra ($58) is just that. It looks great on its own, and also can layer easily underneath a tank or top. This is a lighter support bra, so it's a good everyday option.
A Sporty Look: Solid & Striped Sport Polo Bra & Ribbed Short Kit
How cute is this Solid & Striped Sport Polo Bra & Ribbed Short Kit ($140)? The navy rib, the cropped polo, it's all too good. I think I just found my next weekend hike outfit.
