5 Activewear Design Trends for A/W 2022/23

2022 starts with activewear trends that will keep you motivated all year! 

As 2022 is off to a running start, we look towards setting new goals to accomplish. Focusing on our health has become a top goal for many people. Creating activewear trends that will motivate consumers to stick to their new routines is essential. Athleisure, activewear, and loungewear have become the most popular apparel categories. Not only is it affordable, stylish, versatile, and comfortable, but it can be worn at the gym, on the couch, and even in the office. 

PCF has been following a sustainable macro trend closely in the fashion industry to incorporate more sustainable practices across the board for all apparel designers. PCF is proud to carry a wide selection of recycled fabrics made from plastic bottles and pre-consumer waste. 2021 presented more research and developments towards new fibers. Fashion United shared that scientists are now looking toward bananas and fish scales for eco-materials.

Whether you’re working out at home or in the gym, these fresh Activewear Trends will give you the confidence you need to reach your goal. Take a look below at these Activewear Trends we see taking over 2022 and beyond.


Active Dress

Time to get chic, comfortable, and sporty with an active dress! The active dress is emerging as a new look for every workout. The design is typically made with built-in shorts and a slight flare. Add a flattering active dress to your following collection for a fresh new look.


Dance-inspired Leotards

How do we say we love to dance without saying we love to dance? Dance-inspired looks from leg warmers to wrap-around bodysuits surface as a trend. We are also starting to see simple knits paired with textured styles. 


Novelty Neckline

Cami’s and Tank Tops set the trend as more fashion-forward options than a sports bra. These styles bring comfort to the scene, from working out at home to getting back in the gym after hibernation; you can’t say no to a sweetheart or a ruched scoop neck design. 


Flared Leggings


Flared yoga pants are back, and it’s a style many generations are getting behind. This early 2000s active trend is popping up all over social media, from Gen Z influencers to Millennials; this design is back to make a statement paired with oversized sweaters or platform shoes. 


Layered Look

As layering has never left, it returns with a twist this year. The S/S 2022 runway presented a lot of styles with cutouts, which draws the eye towards a unique new design. Layer your active garments with off the shoulders wraps and cutout active tops.
