Cute Workout Wear Inspires You To Get in Shape

If one of your New Year’s resolutions was to get more fit this year, then you’re not alone in wanting to hit the gym or the track in style.

Fashion stylist Marycelis Barrios brings us 3 of this year’s Top Trends in Activewear.

Sports Melange - gray and pink ladies workout wear

Activewear is more stylish and sophisticated than ever. Choose fitted pieces like this to show off your hard work.

Trend # 1  – Sports Melange

If you are going to get in shape, you might as well look good doing it. When you look good, you feel good and everything is so much more fun including exercise! This trend (above) is all about the print and the pop of color. Melange or space-dyed prints are those that look like the blurry lines of TV white noise.

We all know that part of dressing slimmer is creating visual illusions, and this print does just that by creating the illusion of movement. Wear it in dark tones of grey with bright pops of color to create a very modern and youthful look.

Loose-fit sweaters and ruched waistband capris are not only on trend but will also guarantee you look and feel comfortable and slimmer on your next workout or walk. Here’s where to buy gray top, sports bra.

Krishna Orange ladies workout wear

Bold colors, especially orange is a hot trend.


Trend # 2 – Krishna Orange

If you want hip workout clothes, bold orange is the way to go. This color trend is forecast to be a huge trend of its own, with many activewear brands already carrying items in this stunning color.

Krishna orange is a strong and bright orange, and although it seems like it is for the young and daring to wear, there’s many ways women after 40 can wear this trend without looking like a highlighter!

The key is to wear it in small amounts, like pops of color on the shoes or in a sports bra. You can also wear it for the top, but keep the bottom, shoes and everything else a dark grey or black, to balance the look. Mesh fabrics go well in this look plus they’re on trend and very fresh.  Nothing says trendy and sporty like this hot combination. Here’s where to buy gray mesh top, orange hoodie, orange bra, gray pants, shoes.

green and purple ladies workout clothes

Great workout clothes motivate you to get to the gym!

Trend # 3 -Tropical Chic

The last but not least hot trend in workout clothing is tropical colors. Colors ranging from lettuce green, light teal, bright turquoise, dark fuchsia and orange.

Don’t be afraid to wear two of those together, for instance mint green and purple make a gorgeous combination when paired with a dark bottom and accented with those same colors.

Skirted leggings and yoga pants are a key silhouette, and the best part is it tucks in the tummy and hips. Tropical colors are bold and summery, and they’re sure to motivate you and keep you energized while looking chic. Here’s where to buy  purple top, green top.
