I am not usually a fan of the phrase new year, new you because it is usually meant to sell things to people – planners, gym memberships, weight loss pills, and more. Well today’s post is a more helpful twist on that – if you want to workout it’s always more fun in cute workout clothes. So today I bring you ombre activewear, give me a dark to light design or the other way around, they both can work!
But let’s be clear – this is different from colorblock – the colors need to seamlessly fade, hence, ombre. Besides a cute pattern I need workout clothes that are lightweight, breathable, and stretchy while still looking stylish. I am not afraid of a little sweat (as you likely know from my fitness series) but overheating because your clothes don’t breathe? No Thank you. “sweat wicking” si a great word in my book as is “spandex” in the list of materials. And it is almost like I had “taste the rainbow” in mind – here are sport bras, leggings, tights, shorts, and more that cover the full hue of the color wheel.

Along with these pretty choices I also have two honroable mentions, the LEMON Marled Ombre Legging in Light Blue/Pastel and the Jane Slimming Ombre Activewear Leggings but as I am not familiar with either brand I can not attest to the quality. However, if you are on the Peloton train like me their ombre activewear as part of their Winter 2021 collection is quite pretty! Hopefully these chic ombre activewear pieces get you inspired as well!
What do you think of ombre activewear?

I will always be grateful activewear got an upgrade! Loving the Ombre trend, and would happily wear any of the pieces you’ve shared!
Ohhh the Zella Ombré Seamless Turtleneck Top and pants are by far my favorite. Never seen anything like this and perfect for when I do to scoot our before a few errands and then go and work out and not look like I am going to work out.
So stylish I might even wear it for day wear sometimes.
Some of these are really attractive and so different. I have been spending a lot of time in my work out gear lately, I know, shocking and could use a few more pieces to vary my look. Some also need to go in the trash so this is the perfect reason to invest in a few new pieces.
I have heard so much about GymShark, probably because of Instagram, what do you think of their workout gear?
I do not have any workout sets (matching top and bottom) but maybe that needs to change in 2021!
Some of these are so chic, they would get me inspired to workout as well!
