What To Wear Now: Sportswear
Sportswear, active wear and athleisure all represent a new style of dressing where athletic gear meets fierce fashion creating a unique mix of style and function. The trend stems from fashion’s obsession with ‘having an active and healthy lifestyle’. Since you look good as you work out at the gym, why not carry that awesomeness out to the street?
As shared, the result is a unique mix of style and function. Whether you’re living an active lifestyle or not, it’s now stylish to look like you do. So get your gym gear ready, not to go to the gym, but to slay! We’re talking track suits, sporty jumpsuits, sports jerseys, jogging pants, sweat pants and sporty sneakers.
Most of this clothing is designed with unique features exclusively designed to provide functional benefits to people involved in athletic activities. These include innovative knitting that sucks sweat fast. Imagine benefiting from these unique features as you’re out there running errands!
For someone living an active lifestyle, this style helps to strike a balance between showing off your personal style as you work out and still looking the part away from the gym.
Sportswear pieces are becoming style staples as seen on bodies of everyone from Rihanna to Tiwa Savage. Now, there’s every reason to add one or two pieces in your closet as well. See how to style them.
The basics of ‘gym wear’ are; sporty leggings, cropped top and sneakers. Well, this has never so boring. Add personality to your look by wearing leggings with prints. If that’s a stretch, opt for sneakers in a really cool bright colour. This makes the experience more enjoyable, you’ll look forward to every workout session. And, yes your colleagues shall look forward to working out with you as well.
Planning to run an errand before you head to the gym? Or you just want to have a little ‘sporty chic’ going on for you. Wear a sporty bra top, sweatpants and sneakers. Add a bomber jacket to make it more fun. Feel free to wear this on a normal day out and about, well because it is okay!
Because sportswear is now super trendy, achieving your health goals doesn’t mean having an active lifestyle alone. It also means dressing like it. You can achieve this by incorporating sportswear in your personal style. Wear your jumpsuit with sports sneakers. Make wearing a track suit fun by wearing styling it with boots.
