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

Here are my favorite summer workout clothes:

1. Free people shorts

These are my current favorite workout shorts.

  • Super lightweight
  • Built in brief
  • Fairly true to size (I have XS and S and the XS are a little more fitted [wearing them above] and the smalls are a little gappy in the waist)
  • 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, like THESE TARGET ONES which are a little less high rise, and THESE AMAZON ONES which I’ve heard are bad quality. I’m sticking to the original – 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!
