The suns out, the temperature is rising, and you're ready to go outside and get moving. Which means it's finally time to shed the layers and pack away your wintertime workout gear in favor of lightweight, airy, sweat-wicking, and quick-drying pieces that you run, walk, and cycle in all season long without letting the heat get the best of you. So next up on our warm-weather workout attire packing list? The best summer workout shirts around.

One thing to keep in mind when picking out a workout top that's appropriate for the summertime is material. Opt for cotton during low-intensity exercises, as it holds on to moisture and dries less quickly than other synthetic fabrics. And for those high-impact, high-sweat sports like running or cycling, it's wise to choose a fabric like nylon, polyester, or spandex, as it's breathable, quick-drying, and moisture-wicking. Now read on to shop the 10 best workout shirts for the summer.
