The Activewear Trend Anna Wintour Calls "Ugly"

Alert: Anna Wintour is on Snapchat—well, kind of. Today Vogue announced that it has nabbed a spot on Snapchat's Discover page, and the magazine tapped none other than editor in chief Anna Wintour for its debut video. In the clip, Wintour—who you may already know is a huge tennis fan—dished out her tips for surviving the U.S. Open, and in the process revealed her thoughts on one activewear trend in particular. 

"Don't forget to wear your sunglasses, especially if the male players insist on wearing those ugly fluorescent colors," Wintour said in the Snapchat video. So there you have it: If you want to work out in Wintour-approved garb, you might want to skip fluorescent-colored pieces. Even though bright hues have been plastered on everything from leggings and sports bras to T-shirts and hoodies, this is one activewear trend that does not have the editor's stamp of approval. If you're not a fan of the vivid colors either, we rounded up some more toned-down pieces in neutral hues that you're sure to love.
