There’s nothing worse than working out in an outfit you hate—unflattering leggings, dingy sport bra, stretched-out top. Catching sight of your blah reflection in the mirror as you lunge your way through boot camp is enough to make you want to throw in the towel on the working out forever.
Luckily, that’s not as much of an issue as it used to be: Cool athletic brands are popping up faster than you can say “jump squat,” and the (well-documented) athleisure trend shows no signs of stopping. But while there are plenty of attractive activewear items on the market, there haven’t been many that incorporate art—until now.
Just in time for Miami’s upcoming Art Basel, cool-kid fitness retailer Bandier has released a series of capsule collections with well-known artists and activewear brands. All of the pieces not only feature eye-catching original prints, they were also created to be flattering on the body. Think: high-waisted leggings, sheer layers, and architecturally cut crop tops. These pieces look good at the gym, and they look awesome outside of it too. Just the thing to help avoid a winter workout wardrobe rut, don’t you think?
