All the Reasons a Matchy-Matchy Activewear Look Is the Best


Reece McMillan/Stocksy

Outfit sets have been trending for a while now—we gotta love a coordinated moment. Plus, a matching set is just an easy way to put an outfit together. Just add accessories, and you're done. You don't have to wonder if this certain top goes with those bottoms. It's low-effort but stylish.

The same applies to matching workout sets, which I could even argue have been trending much longer than the non-activewear matchy-matchy duos. There's just something about a legging-and-sports bra combo that is perfectly coordinated that puts a little spring in my step when I'm gearing up for a sweat session. I just feel a little bit more put-together and basically like I'm a professional fitness instructor. Anyone feel the same way? Plus, the best thing is you can pair the pieces with other stuff from your wardrobe, and they'll still look good. Talk about versatility!

Consider these options below for your next workout.
