Nicole Ritchie knows daggy, oversized tees are no way to motivate a gym goer. Getting to the gym takes determination and energy – so why not dress for success? Now that Autumn is looming, and early morning gyms visits seem even less appealing, amp up your motivation, and stick to those resolutions by donning some super chic sweats.
The good news is active-wear has come a long way in the fashion race, now you can find mesh, faux leather with soft cottons. But remember, chic gym wear is a delicate balance between spandex and fashion. Choose one style piece to inject fashionista flair into your workout wardrobe, but avoid the all-over fash attack. Why? Practicality. Stylish workout wear is great, but remember, you’re at the gym to sweat.
Try Organic brand Green Apple’s leggings or bra tops to add that super stretchy sleek look. Pair with a soft tee boldly emblazoned with text or a number for an athletic edge. No matter your preference, slim lined of soft fit, there is a stylish gym top out there for you.
Choosing stylish shorts or legging can be tricky. If you’ve chosen a fashion inspired tee, try standard workout leggings to keep it sporty. If you’ve chosen a super sleek gym singlet, pair it with this season’s athletic look shorts. The best part about these thigh grazers is they easily translate into day wear when paired with breezy sandals and a soft, silk top.
Cold days can ruin an all over sporty look. Winter pea coat over tiny shorts? Not a classy look. So! Rock the super cute sweaters inspired by the grey sweat pant suits of the 80s. Add a cute print and voila! You’re less Danny from Grease, more high street blogger... on her way to the gym.
Chic workout wear will not only keep you looking super stylish, you’ll be dying to hit the gym! Keep it fresh, mix it up and integrate one fashion heavy gym piece with every workout. Happy running!
