20 Best Workout Unitards For Women That Are Stylish, Too

Perhaps one of the more surprising things to occur in recent fashion: the unitard has become the it-form-meets-function item ascending into popularity. But it makes sense.

Over the past year and a half, clothes once relegated to lounging at home or workouts have become wardrobe linchpins. Fitness-centric pieces, more specifically, have meteorically risen as the world carefully dances between staying home and re-emerging. To wit, garments that employ equal parts form and function are now fundamental considerations in assembling a wardrobe.  And unitards are among the list of popular items like leggings, yoga pants, and glamorous sweatsuit sets.

Part-cycling shorts and part-bodysuit, brands like Pucci, Marine Serre, No. 21, and Everlane have each released their version of a unitard in recent collections meant for both fitness and everyday wear. Matek, a brand known for its technical base layers for skiing,, introduced a unitard to its repertoire this summer, too. “Unitards stay classic even when reimagined,” says Matek founder Abigail Stern. The unitard Stern dreamed up for Matek is aptly named the “All-In-One-Z” and is meant for everyday wear, workouts, and even swimming. “I feel like the word unitard has a bad rep, but it truly is a part of fashion history… when I started to have the itch to design a style for summer, I wanted it to be for land but also water if you wanted,” Stern continues.

Styling a unitard is actually more simple than you may think. Throw a crisp, oversized button-up over a black unitard and pair with calf-height socks and sneakers or loafers. Going to a workout or for a swim later? Throw a pair of loose trousers over the unitard to wear it as a bodysuit. Alternatively, tie your favorite sweater around your shoulders or at your unitard-sheathed waist for a fashion-forward take on the look.

Here, shop the 20 best unitards on the market, so you’re ready for wherever the day (or night!) takes you.
