Of All the Activewear I Wore This Year, These 8 Pieces Were My Favorite

This was a very good year for my closet in that I learned to clear out the excess and instead focus on quality pieces that I actually want to wear. I cut my denim collection in half, I cleared out a handful of quirky vintage frocks that were frankly just taking up valuable space, and I reimagined my activewear wardrobe entirely, which had historically consisted of threadbare T-shirts and whatever clean leggings I had on hand.

It didn't take long to realize that slipping on a fitness uniform that is equal parts stylish and performance-driven did wonders for my motivation. While an ever-crowded athleisure market—one that continues to blur the line between fitness and general lifestyle—might not necessarily bode well for my newly Kondo'd closet, I vowed nonetheless to be a little more discerning about the items I'd actually wear on repeat.

With that ethos in mind, keep scrolling to find the eight activewear pieces that got the most airtime in my wardrobe this year.
