Most women have ditched work out shirts all together for the higher neckline sports bras. It makes the piece of clothing have more coverage, making it more appropriate to wear a shirt. It is balanced well with leggings or sweats. Men, on the other hand, have been seen wearing pullovers. Pullovers are lightweight and breathable sweaters that can be used as a shirt. Perfect for on the go.
Many celebrities and fashionistas have been seen sporting a matching set. This is where the top clothes are identical to the bottom clothes. What we love most about this is that it gives people the opportunity to play around with fun prints and colors. Matching sets can be seen in a pair of crop tops and leggings or even sweatpants with a matching sweatshirt. Both are typically paired with sneakers meant to make a statement.
