Women’s workout clothing trends have evolved over time, with different styles and features gaining popularity at different times.
Remember the 1980s? Workout clothing for women was all about bold colors, tight-fitting leotards, and leg warmers. Sweatbands, headbands, and scrunchies were also popular accessories.
The 1990s saw the rise of the “aerobics” trend, with brightly colored bodysuits, leggings, and high-waisted shorts. Oversized T-shirts and cropped tops also became popular for workouts.
In the 2000s, low-rise pants, halter tops, and tight-fitting camisoles became prevalent. Logos and graphic prints also became more common on workout clothing.
In the 2010s, workout clothing trends shifted towards more minimalistic and functional designs with neutral colors. We also started seeing sports bras with strappy backs. Athleisure became popular at this time, with many women wearing yoga pants and other workout clothing as everyday wear. Everyone was wearing Lululemon yoga pants everywhere!
Overall, women’s workout clothing trends have varied over the years, reflecting changing styles and times.
Here are some of the main trends that we are seeing for athleisure this year.
