While I’ve always prided myself on having a few cute workout sets on hand, it wasn’t until recently that I realized just how badly this area of my closet needed an update. Transitioning from at-home workouts to my favorite IRL classes has made me realize that my plain black leggings won’t cut it anymore. In other words, my need for more exciting workout gear has exploded.
To refresh this area of my closet, I turned to two women who are basically experts when it comes to cute activewear, Elizabeth Endres and Dale Borchiver. As co-founders of their fitness platform Sweats + the City, Endres and Borchiver know a thing or two about what to wear to work out and how to look chic doing it. “We work out on average about five days a week,” they shared. “Anywhere between 20 and 60 minutes a day, plus a ton of walking.” In addition to reviewing popular fitness studios, they recently launched Sweat With Sweats, which is a live and on-demand platform featuring a highly curated list of instructors that the two have personally vetted. One glance at the duo’s Instagram feed confirms that they’ve mastered the art of the cute activewear outfit, so I knew I had to tap them for their insight on the trends to know in this space. Spoiler: Their answers are good.
Endres and Borchiver explained that they’re leaning into the following six activewear trends right now, which tells me that they’re the most important styles to know.
