With warm weather upon us, it’s time to consider revamping more than just your everyday wardrobe. This season, breathe new life into your go-to fitness look with a fresh style that will make you actually want to hit the gym. From marathon trainees to casual yogis, we all run faster, jump higher and spin more intensely when our outfit is on point, right? Right. So, ditch that vintage T-shirt and the years-old spandex in favor of new wares that marry fashion with function. Whether you love a matching set, head-turning colors or totally daring pieces, these looks are for you, just in time for swimsuit season.
