2015 Running Gear Guide: Women’s Tops

We put an assortment of women's running tops to the test.

$80, brooksrunning.com

Highlight: Functionally warm without the bulk.
This hoodie’s ultra-soft, cozy and relaxed fit cinches ever so slightly at the waist. The stretchy material leaves enough room for a tank underneath, but it’s warm enough to wear alone during a sudden bout of spring showers. Ruching along the back of the hood and between the shoulder blades secures the hood in place while running. Bonus points for snug thumbholes!

$50, athleta.com

Highlight: Breathable comfort.
Lightweight fabric and a playful cutout racerback detail provide ventilated coverage perfect for a brisk morning run. The crew top’s seamless stitching adds to the silky, barely-there texture while executing a sleek, form-fitting style that’s cut for speed. Sweat-wicking properties in the fabric keep unpleasant odors at bay for multiple wears.

$35, underarmour.com

Highlight: Easy, loose throw-on for a hot run.
To tackle sweat and oppressive heat, the Fly Fast Tank is constructed of sheer and large-holed mesh fabric that encourages a comfy breeze. Loose fitting like a basketball jersey, its simple color-blocking print and racerback cut makes it an ideal light tank top to throw over a sturdy and cute running bra that won’t cling to the body or add extra weight.

$70, sugoi.com

Highlight: A basic, no-frills tee for race day.
Sugoi’s run-specific technical tee will make you look and feel like a pro (if only it guaranteed running as fast as one too). Its streamlined contour contributes to a tighter fit, but the fabric’s polyester and spandex blend allows for fast flexibility. Despite its form-fitting cut, the material doesn’t ride up or stick to the body after a heavy sweat session. Tip: For a roomier fit, go up a size.

$40, oiselle.com

Highlight: Flattering in all the right places.
As usual, Oiselle achieves feminine functionality with their spring-inspired Flowy Tank. The subtle geometric stitching doubles as both a stylish aesthetic and as cooling vents. The back drapes nicely over the rear, providing ample coverage when worn with running tights. With a boxy yet flattering shape, this top can be worn with a pair of jeans or leggings as you transition from run to brunch.
