Atlanta native Stephanie Oaks is used to the spotlight. She has graced the pages of countless magazines, newspapers and made numerous appearances on television.

She has her lithe little finger on the pulse of the latest in fitness gear trends, and despite the chilly weather outside, the heat of summer is fast approaching quicker than a brunette goes blonde in this town.

That means scores of female creatures in the rough are hitting the gym hard, to eventually burst out of their cocoons in the buff.

And from what Oaks tell us, bright butterfly colors are on trend for spring. Here’s a break down of some of the latest trends in fit gear and where you can buy them.

After all, sometimes a cute new outfit is all a gal needs to get motivated for her next sweat session. Now don't forget to hydrate, perhaps by using a Equinox sport bottle that comes equipped with a water purifier. Fancy, right?
