High fashion isn’t just about the runway any more. In the last few years, fitnesswear has been having a major revolution in the style department. From the introduction of “athleisure” (athletic-inspired leisure clothes) to the printed legging movement that just won’t quit, fitnesswear and streetwear have become almost discernible. And as design aficionados and style lovers, we’re not complaining! This year’s Fall trends at NYFW ran the gamut, from bright and shiny to flirty and feminine to dark and brooding (hello, black lace!). Here are the six pieces of fashion-inspired fitnesswear picks we’re coveting this Fall…
Relaxed: FP Movement Genie Pant
A runway trend that encourages comfort? Now that’s a fashion “Do” we can get behind. These variations on harem pants are chic enough to take to the street, cozy enough to keep on the couch, and a welcome change from the sweatpants we throw on to go to the gym at a moment’s notice…

Knit: FP Movement French Twist Rib Sport Bralette
Knits are practically synonymous wit the fall season, so we were thrilled to see them all over the runway – and now, in our new fitnesswear faves. This Picot Performance racerback sports bralette is sexy, soft, flattering, and fierce.
Studio 54: SUKISHUFU Leatherback Leggings
Okay, we are all kinds of obsessed with these Sukishufu leggings. Not only are they show-stopping, ultra-supportive, and super flattering – there’s SPF 50 woven into the fabric. We’d snatch them up whether the runway gods approved or not. Because really, what’s more fun than a little body-con sparkle and shine?
Ruffles: Tonic Serenity Tee
This year, glam met girly on the runway with ruffles adorning all kinds of haute couture. We love this fun, flirty, simple tee to make even the toughest, dirtiest workouts a little softer and more feminine.
Black Lace: VIMMIA Excellence Pant
Adding a little lace to your fit outfit makes any piece a bit more special. But black lace? Bring on the edge! This year’s gothic trend is just the right amount of beautiful and badass for our tastes. A little punk rock, a little feminine – a lot of style.
Striped: Monreal London Striped Neon-Trimmed Leather Holdall
Nope, they’re not just for a game of Where’s Waldo or Halloween costumes. Stripes are in again with the fashionista set, and the fitness world is taking note. We love this striped leather, patent-trimmed gym duffel to hold all our essentials – check those tiny neon details!
