Whether to lose some inches for summer, a birthday vacation or simply to get in shape, one of the most noted goals selected for a New Year's Resolution is to workout. Since the pandemic brought on a boom of athleisure, shopping for the best workout gear is simple. 

Nowadays, athletic labels are becoming more inclusive to body types that are relative to a women's needs and wants. Size, comfortability, dry-fit and breathable fabric are among the highest priority when designing activewear. Workout style has fallen into the hands of brands to make athleisure wear and workout gear not only appeal to the eye, but hold versatility. A wardrobe that works for the gym, a trip to Target and working from home is definitely worth investing in.  

Ravamp your workout gear by shopping these must-have brands and pieces to look as great as your workout.
