Here’s our list of the top 5 activewear trends that we suggest all ladies embrace in 2019.

Let’s dive in.

Athleisure is in!

This isn’t exactly a new trend, but it’s one that we’re definitely seeing carry into the new year. And so, if you’re someone who loves herself some activewear, you’re in luck, because that sporty look is now not only appropriate for the gym, it’s also totally trendy for when you’re out and about. Spice up a pair of track pants with some heels, a sports bra, and perhaps a bomber jacket for the cool girl look. Trust us, people are going to want to emulate your sporty look once you rock the athleisure trend.

Full Bodysuits Are A Game Changer

But hey, maybe you’re really looking to the hit the gym in 2019, and you need some activewear pieces that you can perform in. If this is you, we strongly recommend investing in a full bodysuit. Yes, you read that correctly. If yoga or pilates are on your list of classes to hit up in the new year, there’s no piece of activewear that is more comfortable than a bodysuit. You don’t have to worry about your straps slipping, your tops riding, or your leggings shifting. With a full bodysuit in your activewear collection, you’re always ready for exercise, no matter what comes your way.

Biker Shorts Are A Must Have

When it comes to general fashion, ‘80s style is in, and yes, that applies to your activewear as well. While biker shorts might have you cringing at first thought, once you try your first pair, and you realize how incredibly comfortable these shorts can be for exercise, we’ve got a feeling you’ll be investing in a pair for every day of the week.

Don’t Forget Crop Tops

Crop tops aren’t exactly new in the world of activewear, but these days we’re seeing a lot more women rocking cropped sweaters to the gym with their leggings. They’ll wear the cropped sweater during their warm up, and then switch to their traditional activewear once they start moving. This is a great piece to have for when you’re out and about before hitting the gym. Plus hey, let’s not forget these cropped sweaters are super cute and easy-to-wear even if you’re not headed to the gym. Not a bad deal in our books.

Pastels, Pastels, And More Pastels

While a standard black legging will always be a winner to us, if you’re looking to step up your activewear collection, it’s time to start adding in those pastels. Lilac, seafoam green, feminine pink, and even buttery yellow are all colors that women are going to want to have in their activewear collections for 2019.
