Once upon a time, activewear choices for women were limited to the usual suspects from powerhouse sports brands that catered primarily to men. Thankfully, the days of training (and commuting!) in boring, all-black sports bras are behind us. Look equally amazing both pre and post-workout with these incredibly stylish up-and-coming labels.
1. P.E Nation
