Two bright looks from a pair of top run brands: Nike and Mizuno. 

Nike Dri-FIT Miler Sleeveless Shirt
$32, Nike.com

You’ll be hard to miss while running in the chrome yellow version of this incredibly lightweight shirt, which comes in six colors. Long-run-friendly features include side mesh panels and flat-seam stitching (no chafing!).

Nike Race Day 5” Shorts
$52, Nike.com

Also made of the company’s well-known Dri-Fit fabric, these mid-length shorts are silky-soft to the touch and feather-light. In addition to their superior sweat-wicking capability, perforations on the sides promote air flow. Built-in briefs provide extra support, and a zip pocket at the back waistline is useful for stowing your gels or key.

Mizuno Nirvana Sleeveless Tee 
$38, Mizuno.com

Available in bold, festive colors like sangria (pictured) and lemon (yep, bright yellow), this airy V-neck run top features mesh inserts on the sides and back for enhanced ventilation during hot summer runs.

Mizuno Exodus 3/4 Tight
$48, Mizuno.com

The subtle accent of color down the sides offers a stylish complement to the Nirvana tee without being overtly matchy-matchy. The polyester-spandex blend material is moisture-wicking, and the tights also have mesh inserts for better breathability. Bonus: The easily sunburned will appreciate the tight’s UPF 40+ rating.
