Summer must-haves from Nike: Our top picks and why we love them

Discover the Nike Well Collective’s top summer styles.

We’ve still got plenty of summer left, and now is the perfect time to upgrade your old biker shorts or trade in that worn out sports bra for something a little — or a lot — more stylish.

Luckily, the Nike Well Collective is here to support every aspect of wellness, including movement, mindfulness, nutrition, rest, and connection. With this commitment comes a range of workout gear designed specifically for women, featuring leggings you won’t want to take off and stylish tanks with built-in bras.

If you need some new summer athleisure digs that can go from the gym to a day out with friends, Nike is where to find them. We can’t get enough of the bright colorways and trendy styles found in this collection.

Here’s are our favorite summer must-haves from Nike:

Universa Leggings

A good pair of leggings has to compress without being too tight and stretch without failing the squat test. Luckily, the Nike Universa Leggings ($110) tick all the boxes, while also being breathable and buttery smooth.

From summery colors like lavender, mint, and olive green to classic black, these leggings will likely transcend the warmer season and become a go-to for indoor workouts and lounging in the winter as well.

Zenvy Tie-Dye

When it’s too hot for leggings, biker shorts are a great option for running errands or heading to yoga. The Nike Zenvy Tie-Dye ($70) offer a soft, lightweight material that’s not see-through, and a unique tie-dye pattern that’ll make you instantly more stylish, whether wearing them with a sports bra or oversized tee.

Although they’re very fitted, there’s a convenient hidden pocket in the back of the shorts that’s even big enough to fit a phone. For getting gains at the gym or heading to casual drinks with friends, the tailoring and pattern of these biker shorts will make them a standout accessory.

Zenvy Sports Bra

Gone are the days of suffocatingly stiff, tight sports bras with Nike’s Zenvy Sports Bra ($65). The bra offers sewn-in padding that won’t shift around, medium support and coverage with a simple design, accompanied by an edgy cutout and dual straps in the back.

This sports bra is stylish enough to take you from yoga in the park to the farmer’s market or any other summer activity. Plus, Nike’s Dri-FIT tech will keep you dry and comfortable as you go about your day in the summer heat.

Motiva

Whether heading to brunch or a hot girl walk, these are the sneakers we want to be doing it in. From the eye-catching colorways to the textured upper, these shoes are just fun. And the thick, wavy tread will give you the traction and bounce you need to get moving this summer.

For those who need extra cushioning, these shoes will keep your feet comfortable while making each step more smooth. Whether you’re matching them with a colorful workout set or adding a pop of color to your black leggings and plain tee, the Nike Motiva ($110) will add looks and comfort to your fit.

Versair

During the warmer months, you want a shoe that can take you from jogging to outdoor workouts to maybe a Pickleball game or two. These versatile workout shoes are flexible and stabilizing, thanks to a low profile and horseshoe shape.

With bright colors and a soft chenille upper, the Nike Versair ($140) bridges the gap between serious workout shoes and stylish athleisure — and they’re so comfortable you probably won’t want to take them off.

Alate Sports Bra Tank Top

With a style reminiscent of Lululemon’s popular Align Tank but with slightly thicker straps and a flattering, feminine sweetheart-like neckline, the Nike Alate ($65) can be matched with any leggings to instantly elevate your workout set.

With a sewn-in bra, you’ll get the support of a sports bra with the coverage of a tank top. And the straps come to a V shape in the back for added security while running, lifting, and more. Choose from seven colors, and you can mix and match to instantly elevate your other workout clothes.

Sportswear Chill Knit

Cropped tanks are in, just in time to stock up on Nike’s new ribbed tank top, the Sportswear Chill Knit ($45). If you truly want a shirt that can go from an early morning fitness class out to brunch, then this is it.

Available in 11 colors, this stretchy tank has a high neckline mirrored by its draping hem, which will make it perfect for pairing with leggings or jeans. While you can find similar styles elsewhere, this Nike tank is sure to outlast any similar piece from a big box store that degrades with every wash.

Sportswear Phoenix Fleece

Even in summer, you’re bound to get cold, and this sweatshirt ($75) is the perfect piece to pop on while working from home or post-workout. With a trendy crop and a unique V-neck, this fleece is much more elevated than your old college hoodie. And with eight colors to choose from, it easily pairs with other Nike bottoms and tops for a fully coordinated set.

The wide neck will make it easy to pull on over your sweaty gym clothes, and the crop will keep you from overheating. Play with layers or wear it off the shoulder, and you’ve got a versatile fleece that can take your from summer to fall.
