Working Out In Style

In Events, Fashion, Trends, Updates on July 6, 2016 at 8:24 am

If you are health conscious like some of us, you (sometimes) love to work out!

Looking good makes you feel good. When you feel good while working out, you are more likely to be motivated to push yourself and accomplish fitness goals.

Exercise is also known to boost your confidence and overall self-esteem. So why not give yourself an extra boost, by working out in style? Nothing beats wearing an outfit that looks better every time you sweat in it. If you aren’t sure how to do that, don’t worry, we have some tips for you below.

The first article of clothing you’ll need is a pair of leggings!

They are very comfortable and can be worn for almost every physical activity. The very first pair of leggings you buy should be black. Sweat stains will be nonexistent and black is everyone’s color.

DON’T wear makeup when working out. I know it seems like a given but some makeup products are marketed as sweat-proof, giving women a false sense of protection. Sweat mixed with makeup of any kind leads to clogged pores and acne.

So be the best you, the fresh-face you, when you are ready to go out and sweat!

Tops with built-in sports bras are perfect for creating the ultimate support. Make sure the shirt fits snug to your body to avoid any extra fabric slowing you down.

If you are a runner, cyclist, do yoga or like to lift weights the old fashioned way, yoga shorts are for you.

Built-in sports bras are fitted to your body and allow for maximum body movement. For cool nights or gyms that blast the air conditioning, get a windbreaker. Look for “wick away” pieces because they pull moisture away from the body so it can evaporate easier.

For our bold readers, may we recommend a throwback to the 80s: leotards and unitards!

We absolutely love them! You can mix and match them with yoga shorts, leggings, baggy sweats or just wear them as they are. With these, the possibilities are truly endless.

Putting your hair up in a high knot, messy bun, a pony tail, or a couple of corn rows will have you looking super girly and cute as you get your glow on.

All aforementioned styles are super easy to achieve and give you a casual look that can be worn in and out the gym. For those of us who like to get up and go, visors are your best friend.

Once you have the basics, the world is your oyster. Buy some of the aforementioned pieces in different colors, mix and match and make sure to have fun (and share your pics with us on Facebook and Instagram)!

Until next time, ciao!
