On certain days, it can be hard to feel motivated to work out, especially throughout these colder winter months. We all know the feeling. However, I personally find that changing into a cute and comfortable exercise outfit always helps the cause! But if you're like me and your activewear drawer (consisting of a sea of black leggings) could do with a little sprucing up, then this one's for you. Below, I'm sharing a handful of cool activewear looks, from sleek sets to ultra-short shorts and cute color combos, from some of our favorite fashion girls that are inspiring me to work up a sweat these days. Take a peek to see what fashion girls are wearing for everything from yoga to hiking and shop some of the cool and comfortable looks for yourself.

It's easy to lose your workout sets, so a onesie takes away that risk completely. Plus, you can't deny how good it looks.

Tie-dye is always a good idea for working out—it's bright, fun, and motivating. Wear it with a pair of comfy ultra-high-rise shorts.

Ultra-short shorts have always been a favorite among runners and dancers, and fashion girls can't seem to get enough of them for working out, too. Whether you go for a fun pattern or solid color, they're the perfect option for your next yoga or Pilates session.

Nothing will boost your mood and adrenaline quite like a bright-colored activewear set. A red hue makes for an Insta-worthy look.

High-waisted bike shorts remain a favorite among cool girls for every activity from yoga to biking. Choose one with a matching sports bra for a cute and cohesive look.
