If your New Year’s resolution was all about working out and getting fit, then here’s a simple trick to make that stick. You’re sure to stay motivated while you’re pumping iron or doing the downward dog if you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror looking fab in a new, fresh workout outfit!
Workout fashions are always changing, so here are a few of the latest looks you might want to add to your athletic wardrobe.
1. Layered Tops
A great workout look is all about layering. You can peel one layer off at a time, depending on how hard you are exercising. This long-sleeved split-back top may be just what you need to get you warmed ups, but once you break a sweat, just peel it off to reveal a workout tank. See how cute the back of this top looks and how well it shows off those cute floral leggings?
2. Sports Melange Clothing
One of the most popular styles of workout clothing is based on Melange or space-dyed prints that look like the blurry lines of TV white noise. Melange creates the illusion of movement, which makes you look trim.
This Yoga outfit is an excellent example of how athletic wear has become multifunctional. It works as well for exercise as it does for a coffee date at Starbucks.
3. Form Fitting Fitness Jackets
Sleek, fitted jackets that hug your curves, but are stretchy enough to move with you are a lot hipper than a big old oversized track jacket! Upscale your look when you run a couple of errands on the way home with a fab bag, sporty earrings, and touch of jewelry.
4. Bold Colors
If you want hip workout clothes, bold color like this bright purple is the way to go. A pop of color will make you feel more energetic too.
Not a big fan of brights colors? How do you wear them without looking too loud? Try just a touch of color against all black or gray. Colorful shoes and accessories will liven up your look.
5. Beautiful Bottoms
Shake your booty in some attractive leggings. Colorful print leggings are popular now or choose leggings with cutouts or peek-a-boo mesh in subtle spots.
6. Tropical Chic
Another popular trend is tropical prints in toned down urban shades of gray and purple. Tropical prints inspire relaxation, wellness, and make you feel that you are taking care of yourself by exercising.
7. Extra Long Sleeves
They may look kind of funny to you at first, but they do serve a useful purpose. Tops with extra long sleeves and keyhole openings for your thumbs are trending because they keep hands warm when you’re exercising outside. This cute blue top with the soft drape turtleneck is ideal for chilly days when you are determined to get out jogging.
When was the last time you updated your workout wardrobe?
8. A Twisty Tee
If you are like me then you probably have more than enough black workout leggings. So why not try something new and get yourself a snazzy pair of leggings like this to work out in? These are fun and energetic looking without being rainbow wild.
I love them with this twisty long-sleeved tee that is on the elegant side of fitness wear. Long sleeved workout tees with personality can be hard to find. Pair this look with some cute wrap style sandals and a pretty floral workout bag, and you’ll look cool and classy at the gym.
9. Colorblock Leggings
I’m always on the lookout for a new spin on women’s gym wear, and this cute peplum pullover is something I haven’t seen before. Not only is it a little bit different, but it is practical too because it is made of quick-dry fabric. Paired with these sporty color-blocked leggings and colorful sneakers, this is a fashion-forward look that will take you from the gym, out to coffee this fall.
