How to Style Activewear for Easy, Everyday Outfits

Learn how to style 4 summer outfits using activewear for a fashionable, athleisure look.

By: Lucy Lopez

Summer sun means spending more time outdoors, and time outdoors means battling some humid temperatures. The key to dressing for the summer is choosing breathable fabrics, but what about moisture-wicking technology in activewear?

Between bold cropped leggings, tank tops with fun designs, joggers giving you an excuse to create an outfit around sweatpants and even pops of leather, it’s easy to find activewear pieces that will adapt with your everyday wardrobe.


What you’ll need: cropped activewear leggings, light linen button-down shirt, white sneakers, statement necklace

This look is a perfect way to stay comfortable and fabulosa, which is great if your barbecues involve active yard games or chasing the kids around! Since summer evenings are often a bit cooler, a linen blouse will allow for more breathability. But stray away from those polyesters! Cotton and linen are the way to go for summertime.


What you’ll need: activewear tank top, jeans, slip-on sandals, statement necklace, (optional: light cardigan)

One of the best parts about summertime is being able to eat al fresco on the patio. By tucking a moisture-wicking tank top into your favorite jeans, you can create a casual date night look. Throw on a lightweight cardigan if you catch a chill, and dress up the look with fun sandals and earrings to keep things chic. When picking your top, go for a bright, summery color or muscle tank style to show off a colorful sports bra or a lacey bralette underneath.


What you’ll need: black activewear top, white shorts, army green jacket, chandelier earrings

You don’t always have to rock bold, bright colors in the summer. This cool-girl color palette will allow for an effortless shopping look. Why not take a girl’s day trip to an outdoor mall or shopping center and enjoy the beautiful weather? Pair your outfit with some gladiator sandals or espadrilles, and add an accent belt in a warm chestnut brown or leopard print to spice things up.


What you’ll need: short sleeve cover-up, athletic tank top, black shorts, floppy sunhat

Picture it: You’re at the beach underneath a big umbrella with a floppy hat to shade you from the sun and your toes in the sand. Sounds dreamy right? You could also swap out the tank top for a sporty one-piece suit, in case you decide to take a dip!

Now that your warm weather outfits are taken care of, don’t forget to add these essentials to your summer beauty routine:

One of the most important things to consider is protecting your skin from the sun. Olay Complete SPF 15 All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen will help your skin feel hydrated and protected in just one step. Plus, moisturizing will ensure your tan lasts a little longer!

If you find your hair feeling weighed down and in need of a quick pick-me-up, try the Herbal Essences White Grapefruit & Mosa Mint Dry Shampoo. Or better yet, shampoo with Herbal Essences Passion Flower & Rice Milk Shampoo.

No one likes deodorant marks on their clothes, but with Secret Fresh Deodorant in Cool Waterlily, that’s no longer a problem! Though it lasts all day long, keep some in your purse, just in case you end up heading to the beach or spending more time outdoors.

Hopefully these ideas have inspired you to have a little bit of fun with your summer wardrobe. Enjoy el calor del verano!
