When choosing running apparel, firstly I think about what I will use it for. For example, if I want the clothes for a OCR (obstacle course race) I use short leggings and a sports bra because I know its easier to pass obstacles on bare skin than with too much textile which could make you slip. When it comes to trail running, I really try to feel as comfortable as possible wearing breathable t-shirts and leggings that dry quickly and stay in place for the whole run - I also use a cap because it protects me from the sun shining in my eyes.
