Our Favorite Warm Weather Workout Clothes to Help You Sweat for the Right Reasons

Now that we’re in a sweet spot of early summer (and a pandemic keeping many of us indoors a lot more than we’d ever been), outdoor workouts that are safe, socially-distanced and fun are going to have their moment. But it’s still hot out and even if you’re the type of person who loves breaking a sweat, it’s definitely long past time to put your fleece-lined, cozy gear to the side and focus on workout clothes that will breathe and keep you cool as you do your thing.

Whether you’re a runner, biker, kayaker or an indoor fitness enthusiast without a powerful AC (we see you and love you too!), you’re going to want your clothes to be designed for the summer weather and the summer sweat that comes along with it (particularly when you’re moving around a lot). Whether you’re looking for shorts that breathe as you run, lightweight sleeveless tops that don’t keep the sweat stuck to you or leggings that keep the chafing and discomfort to a minimum, there’s plenty of ways to make your summer fitness and athleisure wardrobe function for the season.

Read on for a few of our favorite picks for hot weather workout looks (that you can totally wear inside while hiding in the shade/AC too)!
