Leggings in summer may feel counterintuitive but Chiswick says this pair keeps her cool: “They’re made of a super lightweight breathable fabric.” Pair them with this bra, which Chiswick says provides enough support for high-impact workouts, while maintaining its feminine charm with details like a strappy back. The breezy tank and hat in the same color complete the chic, monochromatic look.
“The best running clothes are the ones that you never have to think about because they’re not rubbing you the wrong way,” says Nguyen. “Fourlaps’s clothing is all about the thoughtful details, like fabric that insulates or cools depending on the temperature, reflective tape, and lots of pockets.” Add the Lululemon accessories to finish off the single-hued look.
“This matching seamless set in on-trend Millennial pink is not only buttery soft, feeling like a second skin, but the pop of color lends itself to a much needed burst of dopamine,” says Chiswick. “Wearing it sends a message to yourself to be positive.” The built-in shelf bra in the crop and high-waist of the leggings make them functional for yoga, or other low-impact workouts like barre and Pilates. Consider the coordinating hoodie to throw overtop post-workout, and the reversible yoga mat for your at-home practice.
“Inversions are key in my yoga practice as they invigorate mind and body, and give me a new perspective,” says Nguyen, a yogi of five years. Turn to Rhone’s Guru Short and Boxer Brief to hold everything in place when your heart is above your head. Have a second layer, like a quarter-zip, on hand. “It’s great to use as a blanket during Savasana and the perfect lightweight piece to throw on during cool summer nights,” Nguyen adds.
“Leopard is one of those trends that’s constantly reincarnating itself, and the opportunities for incorporating the print into your workout wardrobe are endless,” says Chiswick. “Koral’s open mesh pullover is a great outfit add-on, allowing for the under pieces to show through to get the credit they deserve.”
“HIIT workouts quickly get my heart racing and sweat dripping, so I always look for silky, breathable fabrics to keep me cool,” says Nguyen. Rhone’s Swift collection hits all these marks. “The Swift Short Sleeve uses real gold particles to wick off sweat and minimize odor, while the shorts promote breathability with a perforated venting system.” And don’t forget to stay hydrated with this sleek Lululemon bottle.
“DIY tie-dye is having a moment right now but if you’re not looking to get crafty, consider this chic option that requires zero patience,” says Chiswick. For the optimal sophisticated-cozy look at home, add this ribbed cardigan that feels like a robe paired with Strut This’s joggers. “When buying for The Shop, we put a huge emphasis on tactical experience. We’ve found that the softer and cozier the products, the better they sell, and these three feel (literally) like top-sellers,” Chiswick adds.
Make groutfits cool again. “This sweatsuit from Fourlaps keeps you cozy with French terry that’s soft as cashmere, and cool with details like thumb holes and their signature striped taping,” says Nguyen. Lululemon’s 5 Year Basic Tee is a nice base layer: Its soft, stretchy fabric is just what you need for some at-home relaxation, but it will also hold up during a workout.
