I’m pretty sure leggings have been the low-key hero of 2020. And if you’re anything like me, your legging drawer has been working overtime. For this reason I firmly believe there is no better time to re-stock than right now (and I’m pretty sure your gym-obsessed bestie would back me up on that).

It’s not just leggings that have gotten me this far—other comfy, stylish activewear pieces deserve the credit, too. Sports bras (for working out and lounging around sans-underwire) get an honorable mention, as do matched hoodie-and-jogger sets. But if you’re looking for a wardrobe refresh or want to find the perfect gift for your gym-obsessed bestie, Nike has you covered. The activewear brand is a mainstay for athletes, street style stars and those of us who always intend to hit the pavement or press play on a virtual workout after a long day of WFH.

This holiday season, the house of Swoosh has outdone itself. I’m living for the luxe leggings in gorgeous metallic rose gold or with a subtle monochromatic velour trim and I can’t wait relive the 90s with a micro-backpack and hip pack. Keep reading for 15 pairs of leggings and other activewear from Nike they (or you) won’t be able to stop wearing.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.

Yoga Luxe Plus-Size Crop Tank

A crop tank is a workout must-have. The gently compressive fabric of this Yoga Luxe tank is breathable while Dri-FIT technology keeps the sweat away from your skin, so you stay cool as a cucumber—even during a HIIT workout.

React Infinity Run Flyknit Running Shoes

The team at Nike knows a thing or two about creating a sleek AF running shoe. This one boasts lightweight foam and for a cushioned feel and the superior comfort of their signature Flyknit material.

We love a street-style sneaker that can make just about any outfit cooler. From the Millennial blue-and-white upper to the playful, speckled outsole, this sneaker is sure to be a fast favorite for our next set of Reels.

Heritage Hip Pack

I personally file the “hip pack” in the same category as the scrunchie—more trends from the 90s I didn’t know I wanted to make a comeback. But of course, now I can’t live without either.
