We know what you’re thinking. Lace, for the gym or yoga, really?
Yes, really. Lace is making moves from your top dresser drawer to your gym bag. Think of it as mesh that’s gone to Fashion School. And in most cases, companies are creating lacey looks with trick-of-the-eye prints and breathable fabrics that you can confidently sweat in.
We’ve rounded up the best six lace pieces for your trip to the gym or yoga studio that are both pretty and pretty functional. Because some of us want to feel a little girly sometimes, even if we do happen to be dripping with sweat. — Jamie McKillop and Melisse Gelula

This one-size-fits-most yoga tube top is pretty enough to be lingerie (or to be worn peeking out of a v-neck) but its practical for the hot yoga studio, which most of the Phat Buddha collection is made for.
This intricate lace top has a racerback and elastic waistband to hold it in place during your practice. Wear it over a neon sports bra to make the pattern pop.
These bottoms combine the movement of a legging with the coverage of a skirt so you can swan dive with total comfort and confidence.
This hoodie is a perfect piece for layering. Throw it over a simple, solid-color tank or wear it under a jacket for a pulled together, fancy-girly look in a flash.
Like your wicking workout tanks, this lace-print top will see you through an hour of boot camp or spin class.
These leggings (80% Polyester, 20% Lycra) in all of their print-lace-glory can be worn to get your vinyasa on in very serious style or for a night out with heels.
