Activewear Trends That Have Overstayed Their Welcome
If you love following trends, you most likely have neon activewear in your dresser. Now, neutrals have taken their place, so ditch the bright patterned activewear and elevate your neutral-colored look with a designer handbag, gold jewelry, or oversized blazer.
Traditional skin-tight leggings are being overthrown by flared leggings. Emma Chamberlain is often credited for starting this trend after posting pictures of herself wearing them on Instagram; now, brands like Aerie and Lululemon are quickly selling out of their flared leggings.
Knit Zip-Ups
Vintage-style windbreakers are taking the place of knit zip-ups, and not only do they look cute over your favorite activewear, but they also keep you warm. Celebrities like Rhianna adore this trend as she was seen in January 2022 pairing her blue and black windbreaker with heels.
Legging & Bra Sets
Legging and bra sets are being pushed aside to make room for onesies. These one-piece bodysuits come in short and long versions, often in a neutral color palette, and like any activewear, they can easily be elevated with accessories like jewelry or sunglasses.
Bright Colorblocking
Leave bright colors at the door because classy black and white activewear is the move. Some top retailers like Reformation love this classy trend because they created the popular Milana Ecomove Dress.
Poor Quality
Sustainability never goes out of style and you can help lower the number of clothes that go into landfills by buying high-quality “forever” pieces rather than fast fashion. You should find staple activewear pieces you love and know you’ll wear.
