The Best Summer Sports and Apparel
When the sun comes out, many of us love to head outside and play our favorite sports.
Luckily, many popular sports are perfect activities to pair with summertime weather. You can enjoy lots of outdoor adventures when the sun is out and the weather is at its warmest.
However, if you don’t want to overheat while playing your favorite summer sports, you’ll need the right apparel. That means finding brands that offer the perfect combination of style and functionality.
Let’s take a look at the best summer sports and apparel options for you right now.
Our 5 Favorite Summer Sports
Summer is the season for many sports, including popular major league games like baseball. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite summer sports and outdoor activities and explore what you should wear while engaging in them.
Golf is the quintessential summertime sport. There’s plenty of sunlight, and you have the opportunity to wear stylish golf apparel without getting too hot.
What Should You Wear While Golfing?
Golfing has a pretty well-defined dress code, which makes it easy to wear the right thing if you’re putting together a golfing outfit for the first time. You want to pick up:
- A pair of high-quality soft spike shoes so you can walk across the grass easily
- Some golfing gloves to grip your golf club firmly
- A hat or visor
- A polo T-shirt — T-shirts are usually best since it can get pretty warm out on the golf course
- Some khakis or chinos to pair with your polo
The best clothes, no matter their exact type, are lightweight, breathable, and wick away excess moisture. Consider looking for golfing pants or shorts made of materials like bamboo.
While many people play tennis all year long, it’s particularly fun in the summer. Practically every day will have good enough weather for a tennis match or two, so you need to know what to wear when you show up at the tennis court.
What Should You Wear on the Tennis Court?
Fortunately, tennis activewear is pretty straightforward, thanks to its formulaic dress code. While you don't have to adhere to the stress code if you play in a public court or at the park, official matches require you to wear:
- Tennis shoes without marking soles (i.e., no running shoes)
- Tennis shorts
- Breathable and moisture-wicking shirts
- Skirts or leggings
- A hat or visor to keep the sun out of your face and eyes
The primary thing to keep in mind is to pick up moisture-wicking, breathable clothes made of fabric like cotton and bamboo blends. That's why tasc makes all of our activewear with this blend; it’s how we give you what you need to succeed and do our part for the environment.
Many people look forward to summer for months, waiting for an opportunity to swim. Swimming cools your body down, is an excellent way to be active without heating up, and might be the best form of whole-body cardio you can do.
What Should You Wear While Swimming?
Naturally, you don’t need to wear much while swimming. However, you'll still want to grab a few key articles, like:
- Swim trunks and/or shorts
- A one-piece bathing suit or two-piece suit for women
- A hair cap, which can keep long hair in place and prevent drag from slowing you down
Aside from these, consider getting a new set of fresh, fluffy towels. You’ll appreciate it after a long swimming session when you need to pat yourself dry — or if you want to stretch out under the sun for some tanning.
Many people love to run in the summer, particularly in the morning or evening when the sun isn’t quite as hot. Running in the summer means wearing the bare minimum possible without showing too much skin.
You’ll also want to prep for your runs by drinking plenty of water. It’s easier than you might think to get dehydrated on a summer run, even if you don’t feel thirsty at first.
What’s the Best Running Apparel?
The name of the game when it comes to summer running apparel is breathability and moisture-wicking capability.
That's why you should look for running shorts like dash shorts, leggings, t-shirts, and tank tops made of cool, breathable fabric like a cotton and bamboo viscose blend.
The tasc Performance’s activewear collection is a perfect pick for summer runners. Most of our products are made from a proprietary cotton and bamboo viscose blend. This ensures:
- Your clothing keeps you cool
- Your clothing wicks away extra moisture
- Your clothing allows your sweat to evaporate, keeping your body temperature down as needed
Plus, bamboo viscose and cotton clothes are lightweight, so you don't carry more weight than you need to, even on a long jog.
Remember to choose good joggers or leggings. The best are moisture-wicking but also come with decent pockets. That way, you can enjoy your run without having to carry your phone in your hand or wear an accessory belt.
Yoga & Pilates
Yoga and pilates are fantastic ways to get your body moving in the morning, plus stay active after a workout. Many people enjoy yoga as a way to stretch out their bodies and prevent hamstring injuries before or after exercise.
Pilates, meanwhile, is a solid alternative to traditional weightlifting. Throw some meditation into the mix, and you'll have a whole-body and whole-mind workout ready for the whole summer.
What Should You Wear To Do Yoga?
Of course, you need to wear the right stuff to make the most of your yoga or pilates session. Fitted tops are the way to go for yoga and pilates — T-shirts aren’t the best choice since they flop around and may snag on things during complex poses.
Women should check out low-impact sports bras for extra support. In addition, anyone can benefit from hair ties, stretch leggings or bike shorts, and grip socks. Think of grip socks as special foot protection with extra stability to hold onto a yoga mat or slippery floor a little more.
Always choose yoga clothing that’s breathable, cool, and lightweight. That way, you won’t get sticky or sweaty in the middle of your yoga session and want to cut things short. Plus, cool and lightweight yoga clothes allow you to easily go through the poses without feeling like you’re carrying around unnecessary weight.
