attention Fashion Week voyeurs – couldn’t get enough of all the runway looks last month? Us either. We’re always curious about the next normcore or t-shirt de jour. Don’t forget to translate your newest street style obsessions right on into the gym!
The crop of new fitness fashions this season are a less springtime florals and more structural fierceness. Think barely-there tanks, faux suede crops, and sexy skorts making a major comeback. There’s a pop of sunshine-yellow here and there, but this season the looks are less about bold colors and more about sleek minimalism and high-class, high intensity gear. Hit the gym with these twelve runway-inspired, must-have spring trends…
SHEER: SPLITS59 AVI MESH MUSCLE TANK
Remeber last year’s mesh trend? This year, it’s getting even more transparent. Sheerness isn’t just in the details this spring – it’s the whole shebang. This see-through tank by Splits59 leaves little to the imagination.
FEATHERS: LUCAS HUGH VITASCOPE PRINT LEGGINGS
Plumes were all over the runway this year – and while fuzzy feathers and sweaty fitness might not be the perfect mix, brands like Lucas Hugh have figured out hot to make this trend werk. We’re loving these printed leggings – subtle but sexy.
FLASHES OF YELLOW: WITHOUT WALLS DRESS BLUES MOTO LEGGING
The one bright color making waves this season? Bright yellow! Don’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it – adding a golden glow to your gym look is about finding the right pieces for you.These yellow color-block leggings make you stand out without going full-out Big Bird.
POLO: MONREAL SLIM FIT JACKET
After last year’s normcore movement, we’re loving the more structured, classic polo looks climbing the trend charts. Whether you’re a tennis ace or track star – or just like to pretend you are – this slim fitting jacket has got some major game.
Waists + Ankles: WEARGRACE SARI FOLDED STRETCH-JERSEY PANTS
These sari pants capitalize on the waist adorments we saw on the runway this year (think obi belts and draping fabrics) as well as another trend we saw all over NYFW – ankle-skimming lengths! We love how flowy and goddessy these yoga-ready pants are.
SKIRTS REIMAGINED: KORAL ACTIVEWEAR ANGLE TENNIS SKORT
We thought skorts had gone the way of scrunchies and mini backpacks – but lo and behold, they’re back with a vengeance. And man, do they look good! Reimagined skirts were all over NYFW this year, and fitnesswear folks are taking note. Skorts like this one by Koral Activewear put our 90s ways to shame: functional, fashion-forward, and (dare we say it) foxy.
PARKAS: DROP OF MINDFULNESS MASTER C WIND JACKET
Parkas and windbreakers on the runway? Yes, way! These comfy coats just happen to be the perfect companion on a chilly day or when your run needs to withstand April showers. This pullover version by Drop Of Mindfulness might be lightweight, but it does the trick when it comes to keeping us stylishly warm on the go.
SUEDE: PRISMSPORT GRAPHITE CAPRI LEGGINGS
Whether accented or the whole package, this year’s go-to material was the ever-luxurious suede. Get the look in a more fitness-friendly way by slipping into these printed Prismsport capris before your next spin class to make a suede statement without all the fuss of the real deal (sweat and suede don’t really mix).
Gingham Style: THE UPSIDE MUSCLE TANK
We were surprised to find so much of this patterned print this season in the fitness world – then we looked at the runway. Checkered gingham is back, apparently – and in the fitness world, that’s translating to teeny tiny polka dotted prints! Tough up this sassy, girly print by choosing styles like this muscle tee by The Upside; pieces made to show off your strength, power, and killer delts.

Black + White: KORAL ACTIVEWEAR EMULATE LEGGING
Black and white as this year’s springtime palette? That’s what the designers seem to think. The stark, crisp anti-hues have made their way down the runway and into the gym. The best way to wear the trend? Side by side, like in these Koral Activewear leggings.We don’t usually like extremes, but this is a black-and-white mentality we can get behind.
ARMY GREENS: MOVE BY ALTERNATIVE CHIN-UP HAREM PANT
This color trend goes way beyond camo – fatigue green is the shade to sport in and out of the gym. This muted, earthy tone can be dressed up, down, and around, like with these ultra-comfortable harem pants. Moisture wicking and soft-as-can-be, you’ll want to keep these on long after you’re done at the gym.
