Ready to change the game when it comes to your summertime workouts? We sure are. We’re looking to dance-based classes like Zumba this season to get us moving and grooving—outside and in. Not only is it a fun way to help out that bikini bod, but it quickly becomes social hour with all your best friends as you dance your way through a class that feels more like a party than a workout, though your muscles surely know you’ve worked out once you’re through! For all these new classes, though, we’re updating our activewear wardrobe a bit, as there are some essentials we want to make sure to have in rotation for such an active class as Zumba. From high-impact support bras to leggings that make you feel as festive as the music you’re dancing to, here is exactly what to wear to Zumba this summer.
Get into the dance spirit with a pair of pants that kicks off your class in style. Think: bright colors, bold prints, and interesting details that would make you want to wear these fun bottoms well past your sweaty workout class.
Seek a pair of sneakers that are bright and stylish but do the job that’s required of them as well. Cute as street shoes might be, Zumba is definitely a time and place for true athletic kicks, but it’s definitely the time to opt for those neon brights.
With all that jumping and dancing, you’re going to need a bra that’s decidedly more supportive than your yoga bralette. But that doesn’t mean it can’t look just as cute. In bright colors, with edgy cutouts and tied straps, a heavy-duty top is definitely not as you remember it.
Top the whole look off with a retro graphic tank that will make you feel as though you’re headed to a true dance party of the ’90s. While you might take the topper off mid-class, at least you’ll look ultra stylish to start.
