A new year equals a new daily schedule, and that means Barre is back and here to stay! It’s the perfect blend of yoga, Pilates, and ballet, all wrapped up into one pretty package and a personal favorite, given my former dance background. These micro-movements might be considered low-impact but are sure to work up a sweat! Today, I’m covering must-have, essential Barre wear pieces that will keep you comfortable as you power through a tough class, while looking effortlessly stylish with my What to Where Wear: Barre in the Winter look! 

If you missed the last W2WW, I covered this polished What to Wear Where: Work from Home look, blending both comfortable and chic, so you can look perfectly put together!

What to Where Wear: Barre in the Winter

What to Wear Where: Barre in the Winter

Activewear is taking its place in the fashion spotlight as we put in as much effort when getting dressed for a workout class as we do when getting dressed for everything else in life. BUT the question of what to wear to work out is being answered with an endless selection of stylish options.

When it comes to Barre, your standard go-to look should include a pair of high-waisted leggings, a tank, and a light sweatshirt that can easily be taken on and off as needed. During the warmer months, you can simply grab a stylish hat, tote, casual slides, or fashion-forward sneakers and head out the door. Winter, however, with its dose of frosty temps, calls for a few extra layers to ensure you stay extra warm!

Enter the perfectly polished puffer coat to keep you warm this winter season. This hooded jacket is my go-to layering staple, whether throwing over tees, sweaters, or sweatshirts. Its casual longline length and classic design make it a wardrobe essential you’ll go back to year after year. For size reference, I’m wearing an xs, and it fits true to size. The New Day Puffer Jacket from Target is currently out of stock but keep checking back for re-stocks! In the meantime, I’ve rounded up several other options that are equally styleworthy.

Next up on our quest to look and feel the part of best in Barre includes equal parts lightweight, stretchy, and soft. While a good Barre workout will get the job done, the perfect workout set, is sure to help get you through those pliés because feeling nothing when it comes to fabric is everything!

If you’re looking for barely there buttery soft material, lululemon has you covered! The Align Tank Top offers a trendy cropped length with its cut above the waist—perfect with high-rise pants. Pair with the Align High-Rise Pants if you’re looking for the perfect legging, that’s flawless from top to bottom. With the best fit, best feel, and best quality, you’ll be reaching for these pieces time and time again. I love their lightweight and ultra-soft feel, which offers all-day wearability. For reference, I’m wearing a size 2 in the tank and 2 in the 25″ length (normally an xs in both) pants.
