This summer is all about wearing comfortable fitting clothes that not only offer the perfect amount of sun protection, but have you looking great in the process. Here’s a look at five picks for stylish athletic summer gear that you must add to your collection this summer.



When it comes to working out, the folks at Halftee is a must have. Pair up the basic tank with yoga pants and head down the gym for an intense workout. After your workout, put on a long-sleeve Halftee to show off what you worked so hard for. The midriff baring shirts are also ideal for layering when you want to avoid bulky clothing but need some extra layering.



It’s always important to cover up from the sun’s harmful UV rays all year long, but most especially in the summer when they are strongest. We recommend SPF Addict’s Marina Cardigan, a beautifully soft way to keep you protected while still leaving your stylish. The eco-friendly hoody has offer the highest UPF protection of 50+ while blocking 98 percent of rays that can cause skin cancer and premature aging. The cardigan that contains thumb holes for hand protection should be worn year round to offer the ultimate sun protection against the sun’s damaging rays.



Yoga pants are one of the hottest styles in and out of the gym. To get your style on, check out Chill by Will’s line of leggings. We love comfortable fit of the Survivor Leggings, gray and white low rise pants that have a black mesh design that wraps around each leg for further embellished detail. Stylish, comfortable and slimming, these leggings are the perfect complement for any yoga class, run along the beach or spin class.



New Balance is the athletic store we look to for when it comes to stylish kicks. One of their newest styles, the 1260v6 is the perfect running shoe. It delivers comfort, stability and support in a lightweight design. The stylish shoe is made for both long and short runs and will keep your feet and legs feeling refreshed enough to make it to the finish line.



After an intense workout, there is nothing quite like relaxing in a comfortable dress that shows off the curves you work so hard for. We love the Bailey Maxi Dress by Stevie Sister that provides a gorgeous romantic silhouette. Slip on sandals during the day for an effortless and casual look. The rayon crepe fabric offers the ultimate in comfort and style.
