I don’t know what I did before the invention of athleisure. Especially for digital nomads, travelers, and work-from-homers, the trend in fashion allows those on the go to achieve a versatile style that can be dressed up or down. Athleisure blurs the line between traditional fashion categories, such as sportswear, streetwear, and loungewear, meaning you’re not sacrificing any style for comfort.
Whether you’re hopping on a plane and don’t want to come off looking too cozy, have a workout to hit, but have remote camera meetings to attend, or just want something comfortable, flexible, and stylish for traversing a new city on foot, finding the best street-ready workout gear makes all the difference.
Lululemon Align Leggings
These cult-favorite leggings are made from a soft, buttery fabric that feels like a second skin. They’re so comfortable I often wear them to lounge and travel, but the fabric is also great for moving with me through yoga poses. Plus, the high-waisted design is ultra-flattering and looks amazing paired with either a crop top or sports bra.
Alo Yoga Sleek Back Bodysuit
I love the snatched look of a bodysuit, but the fit can be uncomfortable to wear all day. This bodysuit from Alo Yoga is incredibly soft and moves with your body for a truly versatile style thanks to its four-way stretch construction. It also has a built-in shelf bra for light, everyday support.
Vuori Ease Performance Half Zip
I love Vuori’s laid-back line of activewear. The Ease Performance Half Zip is a classic design that looks just as sleek as it is functional. It features four-way stretch, quick-drying construction, and is great for layering over a button-down.
CRZ YOGA Women’s Long Sleeve Crop Top
Go from a brisk walk to brunch in this innovative design. The activewear top has a buttery-soft, brushed fabric that’s warm, stretchy, and breathable. I love the crop top style, which makes it a perfect pair with high-waisted leggings or jeans.
Under Armour HOVR Phantom Connected Running Shoes
Designed for running and other forms of cardio, and featuring a sleek, modern look, these are the perfect street-ready sneakers. They feature UA’s HOVR technology for a “zero gravity” feel and have a “Record Sensor” that tracks, records, and provides metrics of your running data.
SPANX Ath-Leisure Contour Jacket Hooded Sweatshirt
If it’s from SPANX, you know it will make you look good. This versatile jacket is designed for both working out and everyday wear. It’s made from a soft, stretchy, and moisture-wicking fabric that helps keep you dry and comfortable during your workout, and has a contoured fit that provides a sleek look.
The North Face Women’s Arque Hike Dress
You can’t go wrong with a sporty dress, which is fitting for taking from the trails to the streets. This technical hiking dress is made with a stretchy, quick-drying fabric that’s designed to wick away moisture, features UPF sun protection, and is great for hiking, backpacking, walking, and other outdoor activities. I love the relaxed fit, built-in shelf bra, and overall stylish-meets-sporty vibe of this dress.
Gymshark Adapt Camo Seamless Lace Up Back Top
Gymshark is one of the best brands for finding stylish workout gear. This unique top features a lace-up design on the back that allows for an adjustable fit and support. Wear it for a low-impact gym session or for a comfortable, flattering look while you run errands.
Alo Yoga Women’s Moto Legging
Nothing says street-ready quite like a pair of moto-inspired leggings. Alo Yoga’s version is made with seaming and paneling that contours to the body, creating a flattering and fashion-forward look. They also have a hidden waistband pocket to store essentials, such as keys or a credit card.
Vapor Apparel Men’s Outdoor UPF 50+ Long Sleeve T-Shirt
Made from a lightweight, moisture-wicking, and breathable fabric, this is the ideal multi-purpose shirt that can be worn alone or layered under a jacket. It keeps you cool and protected from the sun without sacrificing style thanks to the classic crew neckline and slim fit.
ODODOS Women’s Athletic Tennis Skort
Athleisure has taken a note out of tennis and golf uniform playbooks, especially in terms of active dresses and skirts. This skort screams street-ready with its flared, feminine design, while the stretchy, moisture-wicking fabric and built-in compression shorts make the style ideal for all sporty endeavors.
Pudolla Men’s Athletic Shorts with Zipper Pockets
At first glance, these shorts look mostly like leisurewear with their fitted design, zipper pockets, and drawstring waistband. But in addition to looking good on the go, they’re made of lightweight, breathable fabric for high-performance exercise like running, too.
