Spring is so close we can feel it! OK, we can’t feel anything (not even our toes!) in the Northeast yet, but we’re still super pumped for the warm months ahead. That means comfortably running outdoors, flowers, and new workout clothes!
The "Pantone Fashion Color Report" says that the "it" colors for spring 2014 are soft pastels paired with vivid brights. Top colors in the spring spectrum: Placid Blue, Violet Tulip, Hemlock Green, Sand, Cayenne, a blazing yellow called Freesia and equally bold Celosia Orange.
Also trending this season are: crop tops, floral prints, high waists, wide-leg pants and metallics.
Here are some runway inspired clothes you’ll look and feel good sweating in this spring:
Check out these leggings from Anthropologie. For even more floral flair, they sell a matching sports bra, jacket and top.
Heidi Klum’s New Balance collection is filled with fun, flirty florals and feminine pastels. This jacket is perfect for a springtime run.
Having a little trouble in the waist area? Thank goodness high-waisted bottoms are all the rage this spring. For even more tummy control, try Spanx’s workout collection. These compression shorts will do wonders at your cycle class!
Klum was inspired by a retro football practice jersey when she created this crop tee, which comes in a pastel shade of mint or black.
