New Year’s Resolutions are easier to keep when you’re doing them in style. If yours has anything to do with a gym membership or shedding a couple of holiday pounds, let this be your guide to the coolest workout gear we’ve found with performance benefits:

This lightweight Adidas jacket ($39.99) has ClimaCool technology allowing you to stay dry, no matter how intense your workout gets. Double points for the on-trend purple color and slim fit.


CW-X bras ($31 from $57) are the best in chest support for the gym.

workout pant

These Adidas Core Power Skim pants combine the shape of a yoga pant with the fabric of a serious workout pant that wicks away sweat–making them your favorite new gym motivators.


Decide swimming is your workout of choice? Try a funky Speedo swimsuit that will keep you supported.


Puma’s Essential Fitted shorts include a shaped waistband so they fit your body right–and a key pouch so you don’t have to hide them in your shoe anymore.

nike top

You’ll love that this Nike seamless top ($45) is long for more coverage, is comfortable, and comes in lots of colors to choose from.

alo pants

If you’re looking for multi-taskers, these Alo pants ($64.99) are light enough to run in and thick enough to wear to yoga. Enough said.


Socks are just as important as the shoes you work out in–try these Hera socks by Asics with soft padding.

What are your New Year’s resolutions? If they include dressing for your shape, check out our guides to the best denim for your shape, how to dress for your body type, and get more of the best cheap workout gear to boot.
