While the OG OV version is rightfully iconic, it's not the only exercise dress out there. Girlfriend Collective just released its version, and other brands like Columbia and Nike have stepped up their exercise dress game.
From V-necks to cross-backs, exercise dresses come in tons of different styles. Below, you'll find nine exercise dresses in different cuts and price points to help you find the best fit for you and your wallet.
14 best exercise dresses for every budget
Inspired by its Athena Crop, Outdoor Voices just dropped its second exercise dress. It’s unlined, allowing you to wear it as-is or layered. In some ways, with a higher neckline, it feels a bit more formal than its predecessor—still sporty while passing for something you’d wear whether you’re planning to exercise or not. It also comes in navy, gray, and black.
This lightweight dress is made with sweat-wicking fabric, advanced cooling technology, and UPF 30 sun protection that helps block UVA and UVB rays. It does not come with shorts, allowing you to wear it alone or layer it over shorts of your choosing.
Complete with a scoop neckline and reinforced back straps, this Girlfriend Collective’s Lola Dress is perfect for any casual event. It features built-in shorts with a mesh pocket and has an inside elastic support band at the bust. It’s made from 90 percent recycled plastic bottles and can be returned for recycling at the end of its “life.”
Marimekko, the Finnish design house famed for its punchy flower prints, does a sweet tone-on-tone for this Adidas tennis dress. But why leave it for the court alone? Its racerback styling works just as well for other mid-impact activities.
An investment piece for your workout wardrobe, this statement-making dress is souped up with top-tier fabric (sweat-wicking with four-way stretch!) and a body-skimming fit. Add a discreet back pocket for your cards and keys, plus the built-in shorts, and your gym bag has a new style MVP.
And of course, we couldn’t end without the dress that changed the game, The Exercise Dress from Outdoor Voices. It’s complete with a built-in shorts liner so you can move freely. The shorts also have a phone pocket. It’s also available in black, white, navy, snow leopard, red, and pink.
