If you’ve ever felt disappointed in your lack of self-control when shopping for cute matching workout sets (I’m pointing at myself in the mirror here), you may be relieved to know that actual studies indicate looking good makes you feel good. A new study from Ryan Vogel and Brian Holtz at the Fox School of Business reveals how an employee’s choice of attire in the workplace affects how they see themselves. Sporting a suit set makes people think differently, and your clothing choices can affect your perspective. I believe the same can be said for the best workout sets available now—they make you want to work out. How can you be the person who misses the Pilates class, when you’re the person who wears a matching sports bra and leggings in a mood-boosting color or a fun pattern? Ah, the psychological significance of clothing.
Yoga, Barry’s Bootcamp, Solidcore, New York Pilates—whatever workout feels like a fitness gift to you, there’s a matching workout set ideal for the occasion. During my coveted morning Reformer sessions, I’ve detected the power of coordination at play—the effort I put into myself can have astounding benefits. The same notion applies for Sami Clarke and Sami Bernstein Spalter of FORM, a digital platform with guided routines from movement to nutrition and beyond. The co-founders say they’re «movement obsessed»—so each of their workout sets is designed for feeling like your best self at all hours of the day.
Workout sets are just as individual as a work wardrobe, and your needs may vary. A lightweight, stretchy set from Alo Yoga may be ideal for yoga. For a high-impact Metcon session, sweat-wicking materials are imperative. Whether you’re working out with Form’s suggested classes, tackling easy on-the-go movements, or taking a Hot Girl Walk after work, the best matching workout sets ahead will surely get you sorted.
Form’s Clarke calls this halter bra and essential shorts her current go-to. «The Halter has adjustable straps and removable padding, so I love how you can personalize your comfort and coverage. The biker shorts sculpt your booty in all the right places—I’m obsessed!” So are we.
