Staying fit as a mom isn’t the simplest thing ever – but the whole new crop of streetwear-inspired workout clothes on the market makes it a little easier. Mamas these days are busier than ever, which is why it’s important for outfits to do double duty and for fitness to be able to fit in whenever opportunity strikes (we’re not above using the playground as our gym, kids). For the fit mamas in our lives, this Mother’s Day isn’t about flowers or chocolates – it’s about activewear that works anywhere. From mesh and zippered details to oversized ponchos and a full-on fitnesswear dress, here are our top nine picks for that gym-to-street look:
Nesh Hana Mesh Jumpsuit
No, we’re not over jumpsuits just yet. We absolutely love the black-and-white scheme and mesh detailing on the cap sleeves of this Nesh ensemble, making it chic enough for coffee meetings, cozy enough to lounge around in – and functional enough to take it for a spin on the yoga mat.
Free People Barcelona Poncho
This oversized poncho is the kind of fitnesswear our dreams are made of. Throw it over your gear on the way to the gym, drape it on apres-workout for extra warmth, and don’t be surprised if it becomes your signature piece.
NUX Addison Top
This is the kind of top we’d wear 24/7 if we could – a fitnesswear staple with an elegant, modern, street-style twist. Don’t be surprised if we show up to Mother’s Day brunch sporting this baby.
NAT + J Natasha Dress
Yes, this dress is fitnesswear. Effortlessly sexy and unquestionably comfortable, this French terry and nylon mesh blend is pretty much the softest dress ever. Dress it up on days off, or throw over a sports bra and shorts after spin class for a quick change that takes you from sweaty to sassy in seconds.
Koral Activewear Rail Sweatpants
Stop everything. We have found the perfect sweatpants. Sure, they’re perfect for lounging around on a lazy Sunday – but who would want to keep these babies behind closed doors? The slouchy-cool fit is ideal for your post-sweat game, and the metallic pocket detailing turns these sweatpants into bone-fide sassypants faster than your last treadmill sprint.
Free People Cold Shoulder Pullover
This is not your mama’s sweatshirt (unless, of course, you’re giving it to your mama). This Free People pullover is super soft and leaves no detail untouched, from the high-low hemline to the side vents and raw trim.
Varley Sofia Compression Legging
Compression tights with completely badass zipper detailing. What more can we say? These burgundy leggings by Varley are crafted from Italian compression Microfibre, the latest in muscle control and anti pilling technology – giving a whole new meaning to “hot mama.”
Adidas by Stella McCartney Tennis Bag
When you’re running around all day, the last thing you need is to be schlepping around a huge gym duffel. But who needs a duffel bag when you can have a Stella McCartney tote? This Adidas bag makes any outfit look a little more chic, no matter how sweaty your spin class left you.
Nike Studio Mid Pack Yoga Shoe and Outdoor Boot
Remember that fitnesswear dress? Pair them with these booties and you’ve got an entire gym-to-street outfit ready for work or werk. Nike’s Studio Mid Pack is a shoe with three parts, ideal for keeping your footing during yoga, dance and barre. Wear them to class, during class, after class – wherever these boots are made for walking.
