You can sport the Reebok Tech Basic PlayDry Long Bra Top ($30; rbk.com) on its own or under the matching Fusion II Seam Free Hoodie ($80; rbk.com). The tank has a bra liner for added support; both pieces are made of moisture wicking fabric.
A sure mood booster, the Alo bright lime Racer Tank ($24; alosport.com) is made of bamboo fabric. It’s not only incredibly soft, but eco-friendly too. Pair it with ASICS‘ Performance 2-N-1 Shorty, with a boy brief built in. ($40; asics.com)
For a trendy take on workout clothes, check out Haley k.‘s drawstring pants with zipper and pearlized button-detailing ($94; BBone, 760/836-3250).
Top them off with Danskin‘s tissue-weight hoodie tee ($54; danskin.com), and you’ve got an outfit that works as beautifully for errands and playdates as it does in the gym.
This AV Capri and Quadro Flow Run Sleeveless top from ASICS are great for running, hiking, yoga, or sipping coffee. They’re made from breathable fabric and both have mesh ventilation to keep you cool. (top, $34; capris, $55; asics.com)
Designed for beginning runners, New Balance 992 sneakers give you supreme shock absorption and cushioning, but are surprisingly lightweight. ($135; nbwebexpress.com)
If you’re just warming up to exercise and aren’t quite ready to don serious spandex, try Pink Lotus on for size. These pretty drawstring pants ($86; nordstrom.com) and tank ($68; nordstrom.com) are comfy, cute, and forgiving.
It’s technically a roomy, durable gym bag, but we see the LeSportsac Piper brightening up everything from beach trips to weekend jaunts to grandma’s. (Shades print shown, 17 others available; $88; lesportsac.com)
Want your yoga wear to look a little bit more — well, girly? Danskin‘s Lipstick stretchy camisole has a feminine ruched neck ($34; danskin.com). The Paige Capri by PrAna is made to hold its flattering shape wash after wash after wash. ($59; barefootyoga.com)
Walking is the perfect way to ease into a routine with a baby in tow. Slip on Reebok‘s Avon Pink Ribbon leather Rallie ($60, 800/843-4444), ideal for stepping in style. Bonus: a percentage of proceeds funds breast cancer research.
Alo‘s Rollover Contrast Capri ($45; alosport.com) and Short Sleeve Stretch Terry Hoodie ($39.50) have been specially treated to repel light rain and odor-causing bacteria.
