This winter may have felt like it lasted an entire year, but finally warmer temperatures and sunnier days are upon us. With athletic wear becoming trendier than ever, there have never been more amazing options out there. Now’s the time to stock up on the perfect lightweight tanks, breathable sports bras, ultra-thin leggings, sweat-resistant socks and more for your sweatiest workouts or beach vacations.
According to Julia Guerra, “Now, athletic designs double as clothing you can wear outside the four walls of your beloved spin class, too, and the days of sporting ratty band tees and shorts with uncomfortable waistbands are far, far behind us.” From breathable basics to easy layers, VALLEY found the best pieces to add to your closet this year. The smart, strategic, and fun gear below will keep you feeling as fire as the temps will get this season.
