With warm weather finally on the horizon, it’s time to trade full length leggings for capris, skorts and shorts. I also prefer crop tees and tanks along with lightweight tops to keep me cooler in the heat. This time of year I enjoy swapping out some of my darker exercise clothes for some seasonal pastels and brighter colors too.

My current favorite workout tops are from Alala and Quince. Alala is a young luxury women’s activewear brand from NYC. Their cropped Breakers Tee, which doesn’t require a sports bra, is a standout and is in constant rotation in my closet whether I am working out or not. Direct-to-consumer brand Quince now offers a cropped tank and short sleeve tee, both in their super-soft flowknit fabric and both under $20! Read on for 7 outfit ideas to jumpstart your workout routine this spring.
