Where to Shop for the Best Matching Running Sets for Women in 2022


The coordinated sportswear trend isn’t going anywhere, and if you thought it wasn’t fit for a more high-intensity sport, such as running, it’s time to reconsider and check out our Best Matching Running Sets for Women in 2022. 


One thing many women learnt during lockdown was how big an influence what we wear has on our moods. Some of us ditched the styles we found stiff and never looked back, prioritising comfort; others decided to add some flair when dressing for our daily walks just to inject some optimism into a dreary situation.


The same fashion psychology can be applied to your running. A study in the Journal of Experimental Psychology coined a term for how clothing impacts people’s mood and performance ‘Enclothed Cognition’. The research suggested that what you wear subconsciously changes how you act, providing scientific backing to the old adage ‘dress for success. Experts agree it follows that when you wear activewear you feel confident in, you perform better. 


So if the ‘That Girl’ trend and a perfectly curated outfit sparks joy for you, read on to find out where to buy workout sets that are fit for running, for that added confidence boost towards your next personal best.


Gymshark has built up a cult following for its flattering workout sets that actually hold up against intensive workouts.
