There’s a reason T-shirts are a workout essential. It’s because they’re not fussy, just functional. We love the little details that make this t-shirt look good on us. First, it’s got some spandex to give a nice fit wash after wash. Then the v-neck, the most universally attractive cut, looks good on just about everyone. Also, the moisture-wicking fabric keeps you cool on your tri-training run, during your yoga session, or while you spin your way across the country.

If you’re looking for an updated workout shirt, this is it. It’s racerback and has a back cut-out. This workout top looks as great as you do while you salute the sun, plank, or race that person next to you. The backless design doesn’t reveal too much and has a scoop neck in the front. You’ll want to make sure you’ve got a matching or coordinating bra on because it will be revealed in the cut out in the back.

Not only does this look nice, it really helps keep you cool and keep air moving across this area usually covered by the fabric.
