Most Coveted is a new shopping series sharing our editors’ curation of the must-know items they can’t stop thinking about.
You see that cute outfit above? I haven’t been able to stop wearing it. (Don’t worry—it’s made a trip to the washing machine as many times as it’s seen my yoga mat.) I’ve been living as if my other activewear pieces have vanished into thin air, but let me explain why. To me, the perfect workout set has to be comfortable, supportive, practical, and stylish, which is exactly what Athleta delivers. The brand’s black leggings aren’t just black leggings—they come in an array of compression levels so you can choose which pair you need based on your workout. I’m partial to the Elation Tights that feel lightweight but still provide support in hot yoga. But as we transition between seasons, I’ll be testing out the Rainier collection made for cold-weather workouts. These classic leggings, plus a treasure trove of additional prints and styles, have me looking more stylish than ever when I’m heading to and from the gym. Athleta is filled to the brim with the autumnal tones you’ll want to wear all season long, so keep scrolling to shop my top picks for the season ahead.
These leggings are the perfect combination of compression and comfort. Ever since I got them in the mail, I’ve been reaching for them over my other black pairs.
Is it just me, or would this tank also be really cute with jeans or black trousers? It’s giving versatile.
This is the perfect thin layer for those cooler fall mornings and evenings.
This sweat-wicking legging is just as buttery soft as the other options, but it provides even more support for those studio classes.
If you’re looking for a more supportive printed legging, this is the one to go for.
I find that most workout tops are a bit too long in length, but this one hits at just the right point.
This textured style may look heavy, but it’s actually made with Athleta’s lightest material, making it a breezy, comfortable option for any workout.
These leggings were made with Athleta’s plush SuperSonic fabric for cold climates. If you’re an outdoor runner year-round, you need these.
