Looking for some good summer workout clothes? Here are my favorite lightweight, comfortable, affordable pieces I’m wearing this year.

Need some new summer workout clothes?

Summer is here in Dallas, so I’m ditching my leggings and pulling out all my summer workout clothes.

I have a few favorites from last year, and also picked up a few new things this year. 

Here are my favorite summer workout clothes:

1. Free people shorts

These are my current favorite workout shorts.

  • Super lightweight
  • Built in brief
  • True to size (I wear a size XS)
  • Super comfortable
  • Don’t ride up while you exercise
  • Come in a bunch of different colors
  • Only $30!
  • (there are several dupes of these now and i think these are still worth it…they’re super great quality and only $30).

2. Comfort Cove tanks

These are fantastic tanks that are perfect with the high waisted free people shorts, or higher waisted leggings. I bought a few last month and haven’t wanted to wear any of my other tanks lately!

  • Very stretchy
  • Soft and comfortable
  • Come in a bunch of colors and styles
  • So flattering and cute
  • use code MERRICK for 10% off
  • I have the “ribbed high neck brami” and “brami crops.” In the photo above I’m wearing the ribbed high neck.

3. Amazon shorts

I bought these shorts last year and they are definitely a favorite. They’re a little high waisted, but not as high as the free people shorts. 

  • Under $30
  • Built in brief
  • Come in a ton of colors and cute prints
  • Small zipper pocket for holding keys or cards, if needed

4. Starter shorts

I’ve had a few of these shorts for several years and they’re fantastic quality and a good semi hi-rise.

5. Amazon tank

These are great loose tanks if you’re looking for something that’s not fitted. Also a lot of the loose tanks out there have big arm holes, which I don’t love.

They’re only $16 and come in a ton of colors.

I wear a size small.

6. Calia Sports Bras

I’ve tried a lot of sports bras, and by far my favorites are the ones that have built in padding. I hate the ones that have the removable pads that slide around or come out in the wash. These ones are fantastic and affordable

7. Low cut socks

I’ve been wearing these socks for years and keep buying them because they’re affordable, comfortable, and great for exercise. 

8. ON Cloud sneakers

I know there are a lot of good running sneakers out there, and if you’re getting into running I’d recommend going to get fitted for a running shoe. These are my current favorite. I’ve been wearing them for a year and they’re so comfortable, have great support, and are so lightweight.

9. Headphones

I’ve been using these Raycon earbuds for the last year or so and I’m obsessed with them. They’re so comfy and stay in your ears.

  • Incredible sound quality
  • Great at blocking outside sound 
  • Super comfortable
  • Comes with different size ear pads so you can fit them exactly to your ears
  • More affordable than other earbuds of this quality
  • Use code MERRICK for 15% off plus FREE shipping

My Favorite Summer Workout Clothes

Looking for some good summer workout clothes? Here are my favorite lightweight, comfortable, affordable pieces I’m wearing this year.

 

 

Need some new summer workout clothes?

Summer is here and I’ve officially ditched my workout leggings and am pulling out all my summer workout clothes.

 

Here are my favorite summer workout clothes:

1. High waisted shorts with built in briefs: I have three styles of these that I’ve purchased and loved over the years. They’re all very similar, but have slightly different fabrics and features. I truly love all of them.

  • Free people shorts: These were the first of this style of short to come out a few years ago and everyone went crazy for them! Now there are tons of similar shorts out there. Even after all these years, they’re still only $30. They’re a super high waist, a really lightweight fabric with a built in brief, and they’re very comfortable. I prefer the size small (although it gaps a little at my waist, but XS is a little squeezy). The fabric is a little crinkly and noisy for working out, but not terrible. Just be aware that it does make some noise. I also love that they have a built in brief so you don’t have to wear underwear in addi
  • Nike Shorts: These are the softest, most comfortable fabric of these three shorts. If you have aversion to any kind of noise or stiffness in fabric, these are for you. The Free People shorts are crinkly and a little loud to move in, where these are a really soft, quiet material.  I wear a size small in these. These also have the most comfortable briefs underneath. They also have side pockets, but no specific phone pocket.
  •  Amazon Shorts. I just bought these for the first time, and they’re under $30 and and fantastic. They’re a slightly stiffer athletic fabric than the Nike shorts, but almost as soft, and they don’t make noise. These have a zippered pocket on one side, which is great for holding your phone! I wear a size small in these.

2. Comfort Cove tanks. These are fantastic tanks that are perfect with the high waisted free people shorts, or higher waisted leggings. I bought my first tank three years ago, and I haven’t worn any other tanks since then – they’re THE BEST. They also just released BABY TEES, and they’re fantastic. If you want shoulder coverage, try those!

  • Very stretchy
  • Soft and comfortable
  • Come in a bunch of colors
  • Come in two lengths (I wear the cropped but there’s a longer non-cropped length)
  • So flattering and cute
  • use code MERRICK for 10% off

 

3. Natori Sports Bra. I’ve tried a lot of sports bras, and by far my favorites are the ones that have built in padding. I hate the ones that have the removable pads that slide around or come out in the wash. These ones are fantastic and you literally cannot feel the underwire but they’re so supportive. They’re pricey but they usually go on sale during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in the summer, so it might be worth waiting to snag some then.. 

4. Bombas running socks. My husband got me a few pairs of these socks for Christmas and I won’t run in any other socks now. These are literally THE BEST. So comfy, supportive, don’t make your feet sweat, and stay looking brand new for years. Also for every pair of socks sold, Bombas donates a pair to someone in need, which is amazing.

5. Nike Pegasus Running Shoes. I’ve been wearing Pegasus running shoes for the last year and a half, and I’m obsessed. They’re so lightweight, super bouncy, and very supportive.

6. Headphones. I’ve been using these Raycon earbuds for the last several years and I’m obsessed with them. They’re so comfy and stay in your ears. I wear the Everyday Earbuds.

  • Incredible sound quality
  • Great at blocking outside sound 
  • Super comfortable
  • Comes with different size ear pads so you can fit them exactly to your ears
  • More affordable than other earbuds of this quality
  • Use code MERRICK for 15% off plus FREE shipping

7. Running Belt. I’ve been using this belt for 6 or 7 years — it’s the perfect size to hold your phone and a key if needed, and sits right against your body so it doesn’t bounce around. Highly recommend!

    Clothing is of great importance for comfortable sports. This is like a guarantee that you will not abandon the sport after the first lesson. It is always better to set clear goals in order to achieve them faster.

    You are absolutely right, it is very important to choose high-quality sportswear for comfortable training. I advise you to consider the range of gym clothes here. Very often, for women’s and men’s sportswear, fabric is used that combines cotton and synthetic threads. Thanks to this combination, it is possible to give things maximum wear resistance and practicality.

  10. I really enjoyed reading about your favorite summer workout clothes! I totally agree that having comfortable and stylish gear makes a huge difference in staying motivated. If you ever need something unique, you should check out custom sportswear options – they’re great for adding a personal touch to your workout wardrobe!
