Whether you’re an activewear-only-at-the-gym kind of person, or these days it’s your full-time uniform—a pop of colour in your athleisure wardrobe can really pack a punch. You might have shied away from neon, hot pink, lime green, and bright tie-dye in the past, especially in the realm of Pilates get-up, but we reckon now is the perfect time to embrace the universe’s more energetic hues.
It seems the world of activewear is on the same wavelength, with some of our favourite players—P.E Nation, Beach Riot, Jaggad, and Adam Selman Sport—all leaning into big, bold, vibey colours guaranteed to bring the energy to your next jog (or Zoom session). On the menu of trending tints and tones right now are lilacs, cherry reds, Barbie hot pinks, and 8-bit video game greens. Who knows—maybe a jolt of vibrant colour is just the right spark to see you all the way into the silly season and the end of this weird, crazy year.
Don’t be afraid. Here are 11 new and extra bright activewear pieces we’ve been eyeing off.
