Spring Forward! 10 Fitness Fashion Trends to Follow

Spring is the most refreshing time of year for fitness fashion. Along with the more pleasant weather come scores of new color palettes, creative new patterns, and smarter fabrics for working out and remaining stylish. As getting in a good sweat everyday becomes more of a priority, finding versatile and in-season pieces that can seamlessly blend into all other parts of our day become key. Here are some notable spring trends that will upgrade your overall look far beyond the reaches of the gym.

Workout tops disguised as non-workout tops

After months of bulky winter clothes, a sassy bra top is welcomed by all with open arms. The beauty of this collaboration is the blend of on-point style with technical fabrics. The yarndye method used in this piece is guaranteed to never fade, which is great because it’s likely to be worn around town just as often as it is to be taken to the Pilates studio.

Lifestyle shorts

This is hand- down the go-everywhere-and-do-everything piece of the season. This classic cut from ADAY comes in a light, wrinkle-free silk fabric. The design is effortlessly chic and the fabric makes it a completely versatile piece for an active lifestyle. These shorts are perfect to take into the boxing ring, and even better for everyday styling.

Scuba-inspired swimwear

Swim pieces are full of excitement this season, and the trends are rightfully leaning away from the more-skin-wins look and towards increased coolness factor. This bondage-style crop graced the cover of Shape magazine this month, and chances are it will continue to pop up in all the right places. The price point means it’s absolutely an investment piece, but if you can swing it you’ll definitely be making a serious poolside statement.

V-stripes and color pops

Let’s start with the fact that the fabric is pieced together in a V pattern and seems to create an illusion of longer legs. Two parts classic neutral colors plus a seasonal color pop is a nice combination. The standout color this year is named Volcano and inspires daydreams about a spring break in Costa Rica.
