There's nothing I enjoy doing more to clear my head than exercising. But I have to exercise right. You know — rolling up to the gym lookin' cute and fashionable! I realize how petty (and slightly vain) that sounds, but something about feeling like I look good just makes me put more effort into my workout.
But coming up with cute gym outfits isn't always easy — that's why I've come up with this list of cute athletic gear that I like to wear whenever I'm exercising. Everything in here is not only adorable, but it's also functional, too. You don't want your leggings to turn see-through while you're in downward dog, right?

This Cropped Tee With A Cute Tie FrontPair this cropped tee with any pair of high-waisted leggings, and you'll instantly look cute for the gym or regular days out.

This Workout Top With An Open BackI get really sweaty when I exercise, which is why I like this open-back top. It dries quickly so that I'm not stuck wearing a soggy mess, and it's available in tons of colors.
A Crop Top For The Gym And Anywhere ElseI wear this crop top to the gym, to bed, or even when I’m just laying on the sofa. It’s soft as well as form-fitting, and there are three colors to choose from: black, white, or grey. View on Amazon
An Open Back Top For Yoga And LiftingNo matter whether you’re doing yoga or lifting weights, this open back top is a must-have. I like that it catches the wind as I’m exercising to help me stay cool, and you won’t get stuck with any pit stains since it’s sleeveless and loose. View on Amazon

These Casual Joggers That Are LightweightNeed a pair of joggers that aren't too heavy? I like to wear these ones on chill fall mornings when I'm walking the dog, or even to the gym when I want to sweat. Make sure to order one size up though — at 5'7", the small is just a little short on me.
These Tanks That Show Off Your Sports BraWhat’s the point in wearing a cute sports bra if no one can see it? These tanks feature extra-wide warm holes — similar to muscle tanks — so that you can create cute layered looks with your sports bra. And if you don’t care about the layering aspect, they’re still lightweight and breathable for heavy gym sessions. View on Amazon

These Cropped Tees That Come In A Pack Of FourI like this four-pack of workout crops because they come in a bunch of different colors to match any leggings. They're just long enough that they pair perfectly with high-waisted jeans on casual days out, and the hint of spandex lets them move with me — not against me.

These Leggings That Stretch With YouThese leggings are great for everything from yoga to laying around the house. Not only are they soft, but the high-waisted cut looks great with any top — they're so comfortable that I own them in three different shades: black, lilac, and mulberry.
These Track Shorts That Help You Stay CoolWith mesh side panels for added breathability, these track shorts help me stay cool and dry while I'm sweating all over town. Choose from colors like anthracite, blue, white, and others.
These Joggers You Can Wear AnywhereSince they're more tapered than baggy sweats, I like to wear these joggers everywhere — from the gym, all the way to the grocery store, and then back onto the stair master we have in the spare bedroom. Choose from dozens of colors, including granite, purple, teal, and more.
These Adidas TrackpantsTrack pants are so comfortable, but they can be really stylish, too. Case in point: these Adidas ones with a tapered leg so they don't look shapeless and baggy. They come in some bright colors and some tamer ones — I like the classic black to go with all my gym clothes.
These Beyond Yoga LeggingsI would confidently say I’m a seasoned consumer of gym clothes since they make up about 90% of my wardrobe. These Beyond Yoga leggings are the cream of the crop – they’re supersoft brushed jersey fabric and highwaisted so they’re comfortable but keep everything contained! View on Amazon

Plus they look great with leggings and yoga pants which I wear daily so I’m basically never taking these shoes off. View on Amazon
These Camo LeggingsAnother cult favorite here on Amazon, these high-waisted leggings have almost 10,000 great reviews for comfort and style. Not into camo? That's cool, they come in 31 other colors as well. And they have the holy grail of leggings - POCKETS!
This Pony Tail CapWearing a baseball cap to cover up messy hair at the gym is essential, but if you have a long mane it can get really hot when your hair is down. Enter: this pony tail hat that has a criss-cross elasticized back to let you wear a high bun or pony or just a regular one. Seriously should be a staple in every long-haired person’s closet.
