Want to know best the workout outfit ideas for summer? With the weather starting to warm up, it’s that time of year to bring out all of your tanks, shorts, sports bras, and more! I love the summer time because I can wear some of the cutest outfits that show a bit of skin and I won’t feel cold.
Although you don’t need the most stylish pieces to get a good workout, it is always nice to feel cute in whatever clothes you’re wearing. I personally find myself feeling more motivated when I am wearing a cute outfit to go to the gym, dance class, or – one of my favorites – walk on the Katy Trail here in Dallas, Texas.
Some of the following pieces will make good staples in your athleisure wardrobe including leggings, tanks, shorts, and dry fit shirts. These pieces can be mixed and matched to your liking. Of note, some of these pieces make for better walking outfits than other activities – such as HIIT, for example – so use your best judgement when you are deciding what to put on for your next pilates, dance, yoga, or Orange Theory class.
As always, what works best for me may not work best for you. Depending on your bra size, you may get away with low support bras for jumping, or you may need the highest support bra on the market. Wear whatever makes you feel and perform your best!

These are the Best Workout Outfit Ideas for Summer
1. Matching Sports Bra and Leggings
One brand that is new to me called Vuori has really made a positive impression on me.
I feel that their style is very mature, classic, and I love the color options that they have.
As soon as I saw the Yosemite Bra pictured above, I immediately loved the cut and color. I am wearing a size medium.
The matching Daily Legging with the drawstring tie put it all together, and now I want this outfit in every color. They are so soft yet durable, and they flatter the female figure by coming up to the perfect spot on the waist.

2. Bright Colored Shorts With a Tank
Wearing moisture-wicking, breathable fabric is paramount during the hot summer months – especially in hot places like Texas (where I live.)
This outfit is from Lululemon which is currently my favorite active wear brand for its high quality materials and timeless staples they have to offer.
The purple bra as shown in the photo above is the Energy Bra by Lululemon. It is high support which makes this outfit the perfect option for high impact activities involving running or jumping. As a girl who need a little extra support in the chest area, I can’t recommend this bra enough. I love how it is high support but it is still fashionable, and it doesn’t look, well, like a piece of machinery made to be worn (so to speak!).
In this look, the shorts I am wearing are designed for running as they are a light-weight, dry-fit material to help you stay cool. I also love to wear them for an outdoor game of tennis or pickle ball. They feature this adorable color and cut that is very easy to love. I love them because the color is a lot of fun while the cut is very flattering the entire leg. They pair perfectly with a white tank top such as the one pictured above.
Lastly, I am wearing Vionic Walking Shoes in the photo above, as they are my favorite, most comfortable, podiatrist-designed shoes at the moment.

3. Dry Fit Shirt and Shorts
It is no secret that I love anything from Lululemon. In my experience, it is the highest quality and longest lasting athletic brand I can find.
For summer, I love a moisture-wicking shirt such as the one pictured above. It is lightweight and perfect for outdoor activities in the heat where you are sure to get hot and sweaty.
Not to mention, the Low Rise Shorts from Lululemon in the 2.5 inch length is an absolute must-have. In my opinion, it is the perfect length for a petite girl like me who stands at 5’3″. They are lined which makes me feel confident that I won’t flash anyone when I’m wearing them, and the cut is very flattering around the back.

4. Bike Shorts Outfit
Bike shorts have been on-trend for a couple of years now, and I think it is here to stay for a while! What is not to love about bottoms that show off the legs like leggings do, but without the extra sweat we are so familiar with in the summer?
Not to mention, I just love this tank top from Lululemon! I’m wearing a size 8, but sadly, this color is no longer available. Don’t worry, though, because they have a lot of other colors to choose from!

5. Classic Neutrals
Again, here is another wonderful look I picked up at Vuori. Currently, I am obsessing over this brand and I can’t wait to get more pieces by them to share with all of you.
You should know that the shorts in this look are low on stock right now, so be sure to get it while you can! The shorts are so easy to love as they are light weight, quick drying, and moisture wicking, making them a great option for an outdoor workout on a hot, sunny day or a walk along the beach.
Lastly, the tank top in this look is a soft material and it looks more grey in real life. It is moisture wicking and it also has a built-in bra. I just love it!
