Seattleites’ love for dark clothing is also a top pet peeve in our increasingly crowded city, according to a recent story in this paper (and probably your own experience).

So, this summer, why not try on something a little lighter and brighter? Here are five ways to inject a big boost of highly visible color into your workout wardrobe.

Brooks LSD Running Jacket ($100 at Brooks Trailhead, Wallingford). Start a morning run in cool temps with this windproof, water-resistant, locally designed jacket that packs down small once the sun comes out.

L. Erickson Ponytail Holders ($10 for eight at Nordstrom). These cute elastics will hold a ponytail tight, while bright colors and an added bead add fun to the style.

Adidas EQT Support RF PK Frozen ($160 at Likelihood, Capitol Hill). Mix fashion and comfort with these cool kicks in a ’90s-inspired color combo. They feature a knit upper with high ankle-collar ribbing and a cushioning sole.

Athleta Sunlover UPF Tank ($49 at athleta.com). This bold fuchsia top has UPF 50+ sun protection and a ventilated back to get you through your sunny outdoor workouts. It’s also part of Athleta’s line that uses recycled nylon to increase sustainability and create a lightweight, breathable fabric.

Nike Power Epic Lux Solstice Running Tights ($135 at nike.com). Need a boost of energy? Don these sweat-wicking compression tights in a psychedelic botanical print with reflective details. No one can complain about your visibility now.
