Whether you’re trying to break a sweat at the gym clothes for ladies or just running errands, you want your workout gear to work as hard as you do. That means the best leggings and sneakers, a sturdy sports bra, and breathable top that won’t chafe no matter how many jumping jacks you do. But not all workout clothes are created equal—it’s important to find the right fit, feel, and functionality for your specific needs.
If you’re a fan of the quick-drying, lightweight fabric that won’t stick to your skin like glue, try this pair of Under Armour shorts (which have over 21,000 five-star reviews). Or opt for the high-waist Live In leggings from Nordstrom’s in-house label Zella that Glamour editors and other shoppers are obsessed with for their flattering silhouette, soft feel, and stretchy, cozy performance.

Another favorite is women-led, made-in-the-USA brand Alo Yoga, which specializes in yoga gear with a second-skin feel and breathable, sweat-resistant fabric. Try the matching cropped tank and high-waist leggings in the Space Dye fabric with a marble look and cozy, cozy feel that is perfect for yogi-inspired classes or for a workout with a little more heart—like HIIT, bootcamp, or spin.
Then there’s UK-based Gymshark, which has become the It brand of social media for its second-skin crop tops and leggings worn by TikTok stars and Instagram fitfluencers alike. The brand also offers a wide variety of colorways and styles for pairings, including a long-sleeve crop top and a legging that’s like a cross between your favorite flannel and super-stretchy leggings.
