Lululemon

There's a reason Lululemon has become wildly popular in the last few years. With a wide range of high-quality products, Lululemon continues to expand their sporty yet stylish athletic wear. They have different lines that are catered to specific types of exercise, including running, yoga, and training. Whatever your drive, Lulu will have you covered. Best known for their expansive range of extremely comfortable leggings for every body type, Lululemon even offers complimentary yoga classes in stores and online so you can clear your mind and tone your body no matter where you are. Namaste. ($128; lululemon.com)

Lucy Activewear

"We're all about women. Always have been." Lucy's mission is all about finding the perfect fit and best-performing activewear for women who want to get their fitness on. With a wide variety of relaxed-fit options, Lucy ensures that you sweat in comfort. One of our favorite things about Lucy workout clothes is that many of their tops and pants double as cool athleisure pieces. Layer this full-zip kimono over your morning sweat-sesh attire and you're ready to meet up with friends for an afternoon lunch date. ($79, lucy.com)

Under Armour

Ditch the black and energize your fitness routine and your workout clothes with bold hues and fun patterns. With so many styles, prints, and colors to choose from, Under Armour should be at the top of your list when you want to spice up your workout wardrobe. Don't worry; they have plenty of monochromatic options if you need more neutrals in your life. We have to say that we're impressed with Under Armour's activewear game lately, and this strappy sports bra is no exception. You can thank us later. ($55; underarmour.com)

Sweaty Betty

What began as a small boutique brand in 1998 is now a leader in the global activewear industry. Sweaty Betty's activewear is a combination of pretty and minimalist clothing that is tailored to all kinds of activities and sports. Founded by an active mom of three, Sweaty Betty's fashions are inspired by their London founder's world travels for a truly unique look. Their website is full of bright colors and funky patterns—like these on-trend cactus-print leggings—so you'll always stay on top of your style and workout game. ($85; sweatybetty.com)

Forever 21

Break a sweat without breaking the bank with activewear from Forever21. Always evolving, the brand competes with other popular brands by engaging us with a wide array of cutting-edge workout gear. While they offer shorts, tank tops, sports bras, leggings, and even grip gloves, we're kind of drawn to shiny objects. Check out this metallic duffel bag. You need something swanky to carry all of your new workout clothes to the gym, so why not take your gym bag from drab to fab? ($23; forever21.com)

Alo Yoga

We can all agree that it's impossible to have too many leggings. Whether you wear yours to practice yoga or just watch Netflix, you'll be obsessed with Alo's patent-pending "Goddess Ribbed Legging." These revolutionary leggings feature fabric that slims your inner and outer thighs while also lifting your booty, so you can remain fashion-forward when getting in your killer workout. The waistband is also engineered to smooth your tummy for a super-flattering look that is ultra-chic. ($94; aloyoga.com)
