Investing in premium gym outfits for ladies is about more than just looking good on the treadmill.

Luckily, there are plenty of quality options on the market, from chic crop tops to high-waisted leggings and supportive sports bras. Women-led brands like Alo Yoga and FP Movement specialize in luxe activewear with a second-skin feel that’ll keep you comfy well past your workout, too. The latter’s cult-favorite fabric, Space Dye—which has a marble look and a cozy, textured feel—is the best of its kind, and it’s featured in everything from the brand’s popular cropped tank and legging set to its maternity yoga pants that many stylish mamas swear by for their workout-to-street style.
