This Is How H&M Does The Gym

A beautiful thing happens when functionality collides with fashion in gymwear. And, when the stylish pieces also retail for under $40, well, game over. The recently launched fall sport collection from H&M speaks to everything we want from our gym wardrobe, including bright colors, bold designs, and flattering fits. And, of course, there’s an LBL (little black legging) option if loud bottoms aren’t your thing.
But, when it comes to our workout gear, we also demand way more than just cute designs. We need performance features, such as moisture-wicking fabric and anti-chafing seamless cuts. Which is why we are pleasantly surprised to find that H&M delivers, while still remaining affordable. Pieces like the black running tights have reflective detailing on the front and back, ensuring you’ll be visible in every direction during nighttime jogs. (They also have mesh paneling behind the knees, a high-sweat zone, to help boost ventilation.)
