1.

A pair of Free People graphic leggings with a drawstring elastic waist to make getting dressed a ~cinch~ when you realize it’s such a nice day that now’s your chance to go for a run.


Nordstrom Rack

Promising review: “If there ever was a pair of leggings that made me want to work out — this is them! The colors are even more brilliant in person. They fit true to size. I feel like a gym-warrior (even in my home gym). Love!” —JHIELA

Get them from Nordstrom Rack for $48.73 (originally $128; available in sizes XS-L and in two styles).


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “OMG, this is the BEST workout top EVER! I’m really busty (38DD) and have always struggled to find sports bras that really hold the girls down but won’t come undone (like the zip-up ones). It hugs you tight on top and is supportive enough that you feel secure, and is loose at the bottom, so it’s not tight around your midsection. Size up if you’re busty like me! I normally wear a L but decided to buy an XL due to others’ advice and it fits perfectly. I’m going to buy more, I love it so much!” —Brittany

Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in 12 styles).

3.

A pair of Champion mesh shorts that are so basic, you literally can’t go wrong with them.


Amazon

Promising review: “These are comfortable, breathable, and fantastic workout short! They’re durable quality and have a nice comfort waistband.” —Amazon Customer

Get them from Amazon for $13.58 (available in sizes XS-2X and in 23 colors).

4.

An All in Motion printed side-tie tank top you can wear tied or untied, so it’s basically two tops for the oh-so sweet low price of one.


Target

Promising review: “This is my favorite All in Motion top! The print is great, and I love the side-tie. The material is great for low impact/low sweat workouts like barre. The fit and material are also great!” —brookeashley

Get it from Target for $16 (available in sizes XS-XXL (in three prints) and sizes 1X-4X).

5.

A pair of tie-dye yoga pants designed with a pocket in the center of the back waistband to fit your phone perfectly so you don’t have to hold it.


Amazon

Promising review: “These are the best leggings! And they are 100% worth the price. They stay in place and can be used to work out or can easily be dressed up. Another thing for all of my fur moms out there, they don’t attract hair!! I’ve washed and dried them many times, and they’ve held up great. They also smooth out my booty and legs better than any leggings I’ve ever had. They’re so good, trust me!” —Morgan Mathis

Get it from Amazon for $39 (available in sizes XS-3X and in 17 styles).

6.

A Nike padded sports bra made with Dri-FIT technology to pull the sweat off your body so you stay comfortable.


Nike

Reviewers do say it runs small, so size up.

Get it from REI for $28.59 (originally $28.59; available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors).

7.

A simple racerback tank more than 2,300 people have given 5-star reviews to — so you know you can’t go wrong by stocking up on every color.


Amazon

Promising review: “I rely on reviews to decide on everything I buy so I thought I’d help a sister out! I just got these in the mail and tried them on and I’m so impressed! I’ve been eyeing these shirts for a while and finally decided to buy them, and I’m so glad I did. Based on the reviews, I was a little unsure about sizing, but I went with my normal small. In my opinion, they’re very true to size (I’m 5-foot-1, 122 lbs). The material is soft and not constricting. They are a tad long, but I have a pretty short torso. I’d size up for a looser fit and down if you’re looking for a tight fit. Overall I’m happy, and I think $20 for three shirts is a steal!” —Shelby Jordan

Get a three-pack from Amazon for $19.99 (available in XS-XXL and in eight styles).


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I have been searching for a sports bra that works. This one does what it says. I am a 36D and I work out with a personal trainer. I do HIIT workouts, strength training, and running. With this bra there is very little bounce. It also is very breathable. It fits snug but I like that. It runs true to size. It even feels like it supports my back and shoulders. I am definitely buying more of these. I highly recommend this bra especially for women who are larger. Seriously the best support I have ever had in a sports bra.” —Jennifer Pelton

Get it from Amazon for $28.75 (available in 34C-50J and in seven styles).

9.

A pair of bootcut yoga pants to widen your selection of workout bottoms.


Amazon

You can customize the inseam length to make sure they fit you just right!

Promising review: “I tried these out with low expectations, but they really surprised me. There is almost no difference between these pants and other name-brand ones, other than they are half the price. I bought my normal size and they fit perfectly. I didn’t measure the inseam, but I wear 35-36 inseam and they are perfect. I love them!” —Jean

Get them from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL, inseams 27 inches –37 inches, and four colors).

10.

A fitted racerback tank perfect to wear with your favorite black leggings for a touch of color that’ll really ~pop~.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is a great workout top. It’s very comfortable, especially during hard sweaty workouts. It does run a bit roomy, but it is all good.” —Susan Jarvie

Get it from Amazon for $25 (available in sizes XS-3X and in four colors).

11.

A high-waisted legging with a laser-cut design on the sides that adds a fun detail you’ll want to show off.


Aerie

Promising review: “I just received these leggings in the mail today, and I’m very impressed! I wore them running, and they are very durable/comfortable, and the material is good quality. They even have pockets for your phone!! I definitely would buy more. :)” —LYDDDD98

Get it from Aerie for $38.46 (originally $54.95; available in sizes XXS-XXL, XS-XL Short, XS-XL Long and in four colors).


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love these shirts! I’ve been looking for a good workout shirt that doesn’t cling around the middle. Not only did this one fit the bill, it’s about 2 inches longer than the Champion shirts that I bought for more money. They are incredibly comfortable to work out in but also just look like a regular non-athletic shirt. I don’t have any problem wearing them out of the gym and feeling like I have normal street clothes on. And this is much more comfortable than normal street clothes!! I highly recommend!” —Mom-of-Two

Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in sizes XS-4XL and in 15 colors).

13.

Black leggings you can wear for years and years and years because these babies will never, and I mean never, go out of style.


Torrid

Promising review: “I love these leggings. They’re flattering and comfy and the pocket is a huge plus! They’re great for working out, lounging around the house, or even running errands in. I’ll definitely be getting more!” —LOLOT521

Get it from Torrid for $41.65 (originally $59.50; available in sizes M-6X).

14.

A long-sleeved shirt with breathable fabric and UPF 50+, perfect for any outdoor workouts.


Amazon

Reviewers say the shirt runs small and suggest ordering a size up.

Promising review: “We just got back from a vacation in Utah where we hiked nonstop for a week. I have never worn a long-sleeved shirt to hike in when it is warm, but this one was fantastic. Even though I packed other shirts, I kept washing this shirt in the sink, hanging it up to let it air-dry, and wearing it the next day. Unfortunately, all my pictures look like I only have one outfit, so I intend to order a couple more in different colors. It’s much better than having to use sunscreen all day long.” —callie2

Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in sizes XS-2X and in 11 colors).


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I run half marathons and have DDD boobs and a small frame. I was getting crazy burn marks from other sports bras with underwire. This is amazing. For me, it fits around the ribs (I got the 32E) and the bra band stays in place, doesn’t move, really holds my breasts down, and fits comfortably. Everyone that sees it thinks it’s such a cute design and the back is cute too. I have one in pink and black. I just bought the one in blue tonight. You also can’t beat this price. Highly recommend this sports bra! They’re all I wear to workout (I do HIIT, yoga, boot camp type activities, and train/run half-marathons).” —jacquelyn Keeley

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes 32A–40E and in seven colors).

16.

A set of crop tank tops that hit perfectly above high-waisted leggings so you don’t have extra fabric bunched up around your stomach.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I love these! I am definitely not a crop top type of girl, but I decided to try these out for the gym since I like something that doesn’t move too much when I run or lift. With high waisted leggings, these barely show any skin and are extremely breathable and comfortable.” —Desi Brown

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes S-L and in five styles).

17.

A pair of leggings with side pockets to fit your phone and keys, so you can conveniently keep valuables safe and sound.


Amazon

Promising review: “These are my new favorite workout pants! They are so comfortable, look and feel great and, have two side pockets. Those side pockets fit my iPhone comfortably and there is plenty room left. It’s so practical. I’m 5-foot-4, 170 lbs, and usually wear between M-L. I like how the large fits better. I think they run a little big and the fabric is also kind of stretchy. I could probably go with one smaller size and still be fine. I like it how it is, but it is something to consider. I’m definitely going to order more!” —Jessica Anne

Get them from Amazon for $18.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in 36 styles).

18.

A long-sleeved top with a twist-front detail on the front hem. You can wear it when you realize the temperature has dropped a bit too much for just a tank top.


Old Navy

Promising review: “Coming from someone who hates working out in long sleeves, this top is life-changing. It’s not clingy or too hot. It’s breathable so I’m not hot during my run. I love it!” —Carina

Get it from Old Navy for $12+ (originally $26.99; available in sizes XS-XXL and in four colors).


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love my shorts so much that I purchased a second and third pair. They are great for my summer walking group. This particular short has pockets for cell phone, keys, or money. I also wear them for spin/circuit-training classes. All the styles I bought have the tummy-control panel and fit high on the waist…PERFECT!!! I totally recommend trying these. I looked in stores all over my area, and couldn’t find what I wanted, but I found them on Amazon.” —jme

Get them from Amazon for $22.98 (available in sizes XS-3X and in 45 styles).

20.

A New Balance crop tank top with a mesh panel in the back center to help you feel the ~wind beneath your wings~ (i.e. arms) during your run.


Nordstrom

Get it from Nordstrom for $30 (available in sizes XS-XL and in two styles).

21.

An Under Armour half zip perfect to wear at night when it gets a little cooler but you don’t want to feel like you’re wearing a winter coat.


Asos

Get it from Asos for $45 (available in sizes XS-XL).

22.

A simple tank that’s really anything but ordinary. You’ll start doing laundry more regularly just so you can wear it more often.


Amazon

Promising review: “This shirt is soft and light which is perfect for working out. I ordered a medium which is my usual size and it fit perfectly. I like that it’s modest in the front and open in the back to show off the sports bra design.” —Nate Larkin

Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in 11 colors).

23.

A pair of classic black running shorts with a 3.5-inch inseam, which means they’re not too long but not too short that they will ride up as you walk or run.

24.

A cotton crop tee to add a bright spot to your workout wardrobe and give you the extra motivation to crush your goals.

Promising review: “I love this top! It has a killer structure to give the perfect fun boxy cut. The cotton is thick (not see-through at all!) and super soft! Such a cute easy thing to throw on! I got two colors and I already want more!” —D

Get it from Athleta for $23.99 (originally $49; available in sizes XXS-XL and in four colors).


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Ok, I legit never write reviews, but this almost made me cry. I am an avid Lululemon-only type gal. I swore I could not find anything better, but I really need to say that these left me SHOOK. They are nearly identical to the Aligns and perhaps even better! If you are skeptical, just get them. You can literally get three pairs for the price of one Align, and they are such good quality! I just can’t, I’m buying everything from this company. I bought a size L since I’m a 10 in lulu, and it’s the perfect fit. You could even size down for more compression.” —John and Lucie

Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in 17 styles).

26.

A short-sleeved V-neck tee that’ll be super easy to grab in the morning when you wake up motivated and ready to go. You got this!


Amazon

Reviewers do say that the shirt runs a bit small, so order a size up if you don’t want a super tight fit.

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes 1X-3X and in eight styles).

27.

A low-impact sports bra sure to slowly become your favorite, because it’s super soft and comfortable but also does its job.

A short-sleeved side-tie shirt you’ll ~pink~ out to wear at least once a week, because it’s simple yet a bright color to add a bit of fun to your outfit.
