I don’t know about you ladies, but I’m definitely stuck in a rut of only wearing plain black workout crop pants and tights right now. I have never purchased a pair of workout capris or leggings that were a different color or had a pattern on them, but for some reason, I have running shorts in all kinds of crazy colors. Not really sure what that’s all about, but I digress. I’ve been feeling inspired lately to spice up my workout clothing wardrobe lately since lots of options of cute, but not too bold prints, mesh panels and elegant details have been popping up at the gym lately.
Since I’m beyond picky about my workout pants and wanted to see the best of the best that’s out there, I decided to put together a round-up of some of my favorite pairs sporting these current trends in hopes you might like to join me in spicing up your wardrobe also! These looks will definitely take your workout style up a notch without sporting traffic stopping prints on your lower half! All of these are definitely on my wish list, but I just have to decide which pair I should invest in first!
1. Zella “Intersect” Capris
How cute are these? I love the design created by the mesh panels and that they are incorporated on the front and back of the pants for extra breath ability and style. I also love that they are still a basic color that will go with everything, but something other than plain black.
Where to buy: Nordstrom, $68
2. Nike Luxe Cropped
I have always been obsessed with black and white designs for some reason, so these obviously caught my eye. They have a little bit of a tribal feel to them, which is really in right now, and the black piping on them is reflective to help you stand out during an early morning run.
Where to buy: Nike, $69.97
3. Nike Epic Luxe Printed
Where to buy: Nike, $69.67
4. Lululemon Inspire Crop
I really like these crops because they give you a little something special without going too far, if you tend to be pretty conservative with your look. The only real detailing on these that will be seen in public is the pattern at the bottom, so there’s just enough there to put a little pep in your step!
Where to buy: Lululemon, $86
5. Zella Live In Streamline Space Dye Capris
If the first pair of mesh capris were a little too see through and revealing for you, here’s another great option. These are a little more conservative, but still have a little flair with the mesh at the bottom. These also come in a black, if you’re not a fan of the dyed look of these ones but still want a pair with some mesh detailing.
Where to buy: Nordstrom, $52
6. Delanowear Nicole Legging
These pants are definitely a splurge for the price, but how cute is the zipper detailing at the bottom?!!? They look so much like normal pants or leggings, that you could wear them to the gym and also dress them up for a night out with friends. I’m all about wearing the most comfortable pants as possible, while still looking put together, so I think these would be a great option to have on hand.
Where to buy: Delanowear, $116
