Bring On The Colour: Fitness Fashions That Aren’t Black!

We know you already have black in your workout wardrobe. But why not push yourself with your fashion, like you do with your workouts, and get out of your comfort zone? Bonus: Your skin will look better against these colours, too.

green sports bra with racer back support and NB-logoed front

On The Green

The T-back support on this sports bra (in Lime Glo with Vivid Jade) is not only comfortable, but cute too. We especially love the NB-logoed front.

pink running jacket

A Coat of Pink

Brighter than millennial pink but lighter than hot pink, this lightweight, water-resistant active jacket comes in Tropical Rose. We’re also crushing on the fact that it’s made from recycled plastic.

light blue full leggings

Power Pastels

It’s not often you’ll find fitness wear that's girly and functional, so we are all over these compression leggings. Plus, there is reflective detailing to keep you safe on your early morning runs.

striped tank top

Rainbow Bright

 

Now these are some stripes we can get behind, especially with the mix of bright, primary colours. The mesh paneling in the back also makes it super breathable. And the touch of black looks effortless with your black leggings.

denim-inspired capris pants

Baby Blues

If you’re more of a T-shirt and jeans kind of gal, you’ll love these leggings. They look inspired by a cool pair of paneled skinny jeans. The four-way stretch and waistband on these capris (in Blue Indigo) are as flattering as they are breathable and comfortable to move in.

dotted crop top

Connecting The Dots

For something short and sweet, consider this sports bra crop top with its jewel-tone dot print. The racerback style and adjustable straps has us wanting to wear it to yoga or barre class.

lemon yellow running jacket

Speed of Light

You won’t go unnoticed on trail runs in this lemon-yellow running wind jacket. And if the weather gets too hot – or you do from the workout – you just slip off this 94-gram jacket, roll it into a ball and stow it in your pocket.

bright leggings with meta triangle print

Getting Lost In The Triangle

 

This triangle print is so meta, with its layered triangle graphic. It'll give us the edge we need for our next workout. And the ultra-tight fit will give our quads the support it needs for those extra squats.
