4 Spring Athleisure Outfits Perfect for a Warm Day
The cold winter season left us wanting to stay in, put on all of the layers we could and bundle up under a blanket. But now that spring is arriving, it’s bringing with it perfect warm weather. It’s time to switch out those heavy sweaters for lighter ones, think about getting back out in the world and maybe even hit the gym.
If you’re like us and ready to get back into a healthy routine after a cold winter, you probably have one question — what should you wear? Here are a few athleisure outfit ideas and pieces to add to your wardrobe for a warm spring day. Wear them as you go from brunch to errands to the gym — wherever the beautiful day takes you.
1. Biker Shorts
To start us off, it’s impossible to talk about spring athleisure wardrobe pieces without first mentioning biker shorts. A great pair of women’s biker shorts provides the perfect amount of coverage to run your errands before or after hitting the gym. Not to mention they’re cute, comfortable and completely on trend this season.
Pair some high-rise biker shorts with your favorite cropped top or sports bra for a look that’s effortlessly fashionable but also functional. They’ll help you stay cool or warm during the unpredictable moods of this spring weather. And if a workout isn’t on your agenda for the day, biker shorts can be dressed up with a light, oversized sweater for lunch and shopping with the girls.
The biker short trend is here to stay, and it’s one that we can fully get behind. Be sure to add this classically versatile piece to your spring athleisure wardrobe this season. You’ll be surprised at how many ways there are to wear them.
2. Loose Tank Tops
On these breezy and sunny days, a loose tank top is an absolute must-have for any spring athleisure wardrobe. There are a couple of reasons why we say you need one. First, what better way is there to show off your cute sports bras than with a light and flowy tank top?
Whether it’s a high-neck muscle tank with low armhole cutouts or a racerback to show a peek at a strappy bra design, a loose tank and a cute sports bra are simply a match made in heaven.
Second, the light, breathable layer provided by a loose tank top is a necessity during warmer spring weather. We especially love to pair our tanks with a seamless sports bra underneath for comfortable layers that don’t feel too heavy or bulky. If you ask us, cute sports bras and loose tank tops are a dynamic duo, and we’ll be sure to incorporate them into our spring athleisure rotation this year.
3. Matching Sets
If you’re looking for a quick and easy athleisure outfit to throw on without needing to think too hard, then the answer is simple: A matching activewear set is an effortless way to look put together without even trying.
So before you run out the door to drop off the kids, meet with a friend or hit the gym, put on an activewear bottom and top set in your favorite color or print, and you’ll feel ready to take on your day.
Studies support the idea that our clothing choices can have an effect on our mood. We love walking out the door in a matching outfit for a polished and trendy look that leaves us feeling confident and comfortable.
So if you’re aiming for a professionally styled look but don’t have the time to put in much effort, then matching pieces are the answer you’ve been looking for.
4. Cropped Sweaters
Last but not least on our list of must-have spring athleisure pieces is the cropped sweater. A cropped sweater is the perfect companion to a pair of high-waisted biker shorts or compression leggings on an unpredictable spring day.
This trendy silhouette is in style and for good reason: It’s flattering on everyone! A light, cropped sweater with a high-rise bottom will elongate your legs for a look you can take around town, not just to the gym.
And if the spring weather changes unexpectedly from breezy to too warm, a cropped sweater is just as cute when tied around your waist as it is when it’s on (plus then you can show off your cute sports bra underneath!). We love this piece for mixing up our spring athleisure wardrobe, and we know you will too.
In conclusion, spring is here, and we’re ready to update our athleisure wardrobe to accommodate it. Classy athleisure looks are the perfect style for spring days that require you to be on the go, checking things off of your To Do lists and maybe getting in a workout too.
These outfit ideas will help you get where you need to go, do what you need to do and make sure you look cute while doing it.
