22 Matching Sets for Any Exercise

Dimitrios Kambouris

Over the past year, I’ve mostly worn matching workout sets for marathons of the streaming variety. But fashion’s recent obsession with country club athletics and expanding options for virtual and in-person fitness have reignited my interest in movement. For an extra dose of motivation to exercise again, I’m now turning to the best matching workout sets.

Matching sets have always exuded an aura of having-it-together. Their power of coordination is still at play in the arena of Lycra and leggings, but with more stretch and ventilation. Whether a 60-minute yoga flow or a 10-minute walk is on deck, there are matching sets designed specifically for the range and intensity of each workout. Fitness-focused brands from Gymshark to Girlfriend Collective have made sure of it. Then on rest day, the 22 best matching sets are just as comfortable for doing nothing at all.

Your LISS workouts just got a lot cuter. Girlfriend Collective’s best-selling bra and matching skort ($ 58) have full coverage and breathable fabrics for low-impact activities. This set also comes from the most size-inclusive workout brands, with every piece available up to size 6X.

Allbirds is taking its sustainability ethos to activewear, and the results are perfect for running, walking, or weight training.

New activewear brands are launching left and right, but some low-impact yoga classes are best served by a familiar label.
