This sunny athleisure trend is perfect for summer. Learn how to make it work from these active influencers who wear workout clothes all day, every day.
Most fitness aficionados have their trusty staple black leggings on lock. But finding colorful accent pieces to add into the mix can be tricky if you don't know what to look for. Start with the summer's biggest color trend in activewear: yellow.
When you think about it, the hue is the perfect representation of bright, sunny summer days. But how do you actually incorporate it into your already-existing workout wardrobe? Don't worry—these stylish health and fitness pros have your back. (BTW, here's how to pull off the pastel sneaker athleisure trend.)
Keep it in the (color) family.

You might not think to match yellow leggings with an orange bra, but trainer Anna Victoria's look works because these colors are in the same family of warm tones. By adding a classic white sneaker (which you can just see a peek of) and keeping the cut of each piece clean, she achieves a look that's simple yet eye-catching. (FYI, Anna Victoria has a message for anyone who says they "prefer" her body to look a certain way.)
Do the tracksuit thing.
Yellow is amazing outside the gym on a rest or travel day, too. Make like Robin Arzon, Peloton's head instructor, who opted for this fun pastel yellow tracksuit on a recent trip out of town. She pulled the look together with a contrasting blue-gray t-shirt that matched her sneakers, which is an easy way to keep things feeling put-together even when you're basically wearing head-to-toe sweats.
Color block it out.
from zero to meditationi get asked a lot, “where do I start?” when it comes to meditating. everybody’s different, but i did some reflecting and below are some of the things that helped me gain a consistent meditation practice. meditation has not only helped me to be more present and observe more than react, but my favorite thing about it is it helps me connect with myself on a deep level. so here are my tools i used! 1. set an attainable goal, even it its just sitting for 10 minutes once a week. we have to start somewhere! setting a goal too regimented right away can throw us off the bandwagon and leave us feeling guilty. get real with yourself and your schedule. 2. choose a designated place in the house to sit. you don’t need to live behind a waterfall or a Japanese garden to get zen. just a comfortable place to sit that is hopefully quiet and without so many distractions. a plant, candle, favorite photograph, or cushion can make it feel more cozy. 3. technology can help - using an app like @headspace and @calm is a great way to get the meditation process started. it sets reminders and you can track your process. having a daily check in was very helpful for me until I felt strong enough to meditate on my own. even @youtube has some for free! 4. try different types. there is guided, unguided, silent, music, ambient meditation. there are a hundred ways to do it, none are right or wrong! get feedback and try out a few to see what feels best for you: and remember that your style may change. 5. remember that it is the mind’s nature to run through thoughts. dont get discouraged if you cannot settle the monkey mind. just noticing its thoughts is a huge achievement! the more you practice, the more you will notice the mind’s subtle patterns. practice compassion with yourself and keep returning to the present moment no matter how many times you have to. happy happy saturday! #leefromamerica
Solid yellow pieces might not be everyone's jam—and that's okay! Take a cue from wellness influencer Lee Tilghman, who matched her color-blocked Outdoor Voices leggings with a yellow crop top. By adding some earthy green tones to the mix, yellow suddenly seems a whole lot more wearable for the color-shy.
Top off basic black.

A black-and-yellow outfit doesn't need to make you look like a bumblebee. Case in point: trainer Alexia Clark's yellow sweatshirt and black leggings outfit. This look is proof that sometimes, the best way to try out a new trend is to go with what you know. And BTW, her Carbon 38 sweatshirt is still available! ($165; carbon38.com)
|| SUNSHINE || It might not be visible in the sky today, but that’s ok when I get to wear it! Head over to my YouTube now to find out if the new @asos activewear is worth the hype and which pieces are Downward Facing Dog proof! Also check out the video I posted earlier today... my reaction to a pretty poorly written article (in my opinion) that I read, claiming that yoga leggings are bad for women. Link in my bio.
If you love wearing color, one of the easiest ways to try out this trend and be sure you get it right is to wear a matching set, like yoga teacher and influencer Cat Meffan. Plus, the pieces can each be worn on their own to add a summery vibe to your go-to workout basics.
