What you wear during workouts is up to you. I personally like leggings all year-round, but maybe you’re more into long shirts and mesh shorts. Maybe you’re obsessed with anything neon or velvet sports bras. But have you ever considered wearing a dress to the gym?
Exercise dresses aren’t just for tennis anymore. Outdoor Voices advertises its selection (featuring built-in shorts for coverage) as ones you can dance, rollerblade, even weightlift in. Nike sells a slew of golf dresses that can be worn beyond the green. As the warmer weather approaches, these will double as great athleisure pieces you can slip on to catch up with friends or run errands — because, as designer Yves Saint Laurent put it, “Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.” Especially if she’s striving toward her fitness goals!
