I am trying to get in shape and have started to go to the gym 3 x a week. I want to buy some cute workout tops with sleeves to go with leggings, but all I can find are a lot of skimpy, sleeveless tops. Can you help me find some sporty, modern looking workout tops that cover the flab? Thanks, Sandra
|Hi Sandra, |
Congratulations on your new workout routine! I think the right clothes can be a good motivator and I completely understand you wanting a little arm coverage while you are working to tighten up the arm jiggle. Many of my readers have asked for the same thing.
I personally also prefer workout tops with sleeves because I exercise early in the early morning, and if I’m down in my basement doing pilates or outside taking a walk around the neighborhood at 7 a.m., it’s chilly! So here are some cute and sporty workout tops with sleeves you’ll want to check out!
1. Take It Outside
When you take your workout outdoors, you need a top that will stand up to the elements. The Thermal 1/2 Zip Pullover has the coziness of a favorite broken-in sweatshirt without the bulk. For convenience, it features secure pockets for cash or cards you’ll need to warm up with a cup of coffee after your long workout.
2. Anytime, Anywhere
Feel pretty in pink when you are working out or hanging out, on this short sleeve mesh workout tee from Nicole Miller that will keep you feeling fit and looking fantastic.
This is a great top to wear when you find a tank top is just too revealing, but you do need something cool to wear when you are doing the circuit, catching a yoga class or doing Zumba classes.
The t-back cutout and mesh panel down the back is a great way to add a touch of sex appeal to your normal workout wear.
3. Cute Cutouts
Now, this is beautiful piece! This Mantra long sleeve top in soft gray is a happy combination of fashion and function. The fitted silhouette and convenient thumbholes will stay put through your toughest workouts, while slashed cutouts in the front and back add a little edge.
4. Color Is Motivating
If you want to feel inspired, there’s nothing like colorful workout clothes to make you feel like getting up and off the couch. This stunning blue top from Adidas ,in a very modern feminine silhouette, will revive you and give you the energy you need to kick your workout up a notch.
Three- quarter length sleeves are hard to find so when you see a top like this, grab it. That 3/4 length sleeve is slimming and youthful!
5. Comfy and Cozy
Here’s a pretty, long sleeved top from Roxy that looks like a gorgeous sunrise or sunset. Crafted from a warm, breathable technical fabric, this ombre peach, and gray melange top is mesmerizing and will make you feel relaxed and focused when working out.
6. Fun and Fitted
Think fitted, but not tight when it comes to your workout wear. This prAna Luca Tee conforms to your curves without being too form-fitting. It features an energetic print makes your workout wear come alive and will make you feel the same way too!
A print like this with the print across the bust and tummy fools the eye and makes your waist look smaller and your bust bigger.
7. Form and Function
Nothing will get in the way of your game or workout when you’re wearing the New Balance 3/4 Sleeve Top. The shortened length and soft tipped elastic cuffs help ensure they sit flat, out of the way. Stretch mesh panels at the side keep you cool when your workout heats up.
8. Brighten Up!
If you are heavier on the bottom, save black for below the waist and wear a bright top on your upper half. Wearing a bold color, such as this golden yellow dry performance t-shirt from Champion, will pump you up and give you the motivation you need to power through even the toughest workout.
