The best workout clothes for women working from home

Shelter-in-place season is upon us. Social distancing, of course, means not being able to let off steam at the gym. But shoebox apartment-dwelling New Yorkers are getting creative with their workouts — and their athleisure. Whether you’re running around the block or doing a lap to the kitchen for your 2:30 p.m. quarantini on the rocks (we won’t tell), these cute workout clothes for women have got you covered.
