Fashion Meets Function: Workout Gear for Spring

I recently signed up for a sprint triathlon and one of the things I’m super excited about is all the snazzy new workout gear I’m going to have to buy. Summer is right around the corner and if you’ve been binging on Netflix and eating your feelings all winter (I mean, who hasn’t?) it’s time to shake off those cobwebs and get your butt moving. Go for a walk or run, hit a yoga class, try out a pilates reformer or line up at that ballet bar. Pick your poison, but whatever you do, do it in style!

I’m OBSESSED with the mesh gloves built in to this impossibly cool Alala Dolman Hoodie! Keep out the chilly breeze on your morning run or just rock it for a relaxed, street smart style. $125, Carbon38.com

These new Nike Air VaporMax’s are FIYAH! Look at how futuristic they are. Plus, the flyknit weave means that the normally clunky Air Max is clocking in at a breezy new weight. Comfortable, light and fly? Yes, please! $190, nike.com

I might have to block LivetheProcess.com from my web browser because pretty much everything on their site is to die for. But if you have to pick only one thing, make it these adorable geo print shorts. $115, livetheprocess.com
