Springtime for Gym-time Trends

As you already know, fitness fashion can easily take you from studio to street...and these days fitness fashion totally chases what’s on the runways making it easier to seamlessly rock your workout look multiple ways. Last year we saw a lot of peplum. The designers for AEO Performance from American Eagle Outfitters took this ladylike style and used moisture-wicking material to make it perfect for workout and hangout. Pictured below is the AEO Performance Peplum T-Shirt:

This spring, fitness fashion is echoing some of the hottest trends and translating them into workout looks that will inspire you to make the gym your catwalk.

Here are 5 Springtime Fitness Fashion Trends for all you fearless groundhogs out there!


CT's are making a major comeback this spring and summer. They started cropping up last summer but now you are going to see this midriff showing style everywhere...even at the gym. Under Armour is really doing an awesome job making this hot style translate to fitness apparel. For example, check out this Bolo Mesh Crop Tee which is just a taste of the crop styles UA has in the works which will also include long sleeves and layerables. And this soft, shoulder-slouchy Crop Tee in beige from Dona Jo Active Wear is a callback to Fame. It’s less belly-bearing which is nice if you’re not ready to go all out on this trend. Plus, it's versatile because it looks just as cute with trendy cuffed jeans. If you love it, use MIZZFIT20 for 20% off when you shop Dona Jo!


Slouchy's an undeniable big look for spring pants. With their Dri-Fit Epic pant, Nike is doing an awesome job creating a stylish workout version of this big trend. They also look great paired with a crop top.


Imagine getting to wear your favorite modern art. With this new spring style trend, you can rock the modern art look even in your workout clothes. I'm loving these Prism Leggings from Lucas Hugh which you can also find here on Carbon38. They’re museum quality.

And so are these Lichtenstein art yoga pants, spotted at the Wanderlust Festival in O'ahu Hawaii!



"Wordy" is a verbose style for spring focused on motivation and goal oriented words that will put you into the right frame of mind. It’s quite simply just a lot of words in beautiful fonts printed on shirts, skirts and hoodies. Norma Kamali’s Interactive Active Collection has a bunch of this going on but it's already all SOLD OUT...unless you score it on Carbon38!


It can't be spring without floral prints aplenty. I'm loving how fitness designers are integrating floral patterns into workout apparel in a high fashion way. One of my favorite floral fitness combo-pieces for spring is this bra top and matching jacket below from Don't Let Them Fall.
