One of my closest friends insists, “I can only work out if I have cute athletic clothes to wear to the gym,” and as silly as this statement seems, I believe it holds some truth. We all love new clothes, and what could motivate us more to get our butts up and moving than a new pair of running sneakers or patterned sports bra.
When it comes to athletic apparel, there are endless options and it’s important to determine what feels most comfortable. This Fashionista prefers a loose tank top and breathable athletic shorts while others may prefer leggings and a V-neck. Once you determine what you feel best suits your workout, you can begin to explore the hundreds of brands of workout wear that match your taste and budget. I am a huge fan of lululemon leggings, but if you’re not thrilled with the steep price, you can find very similar pairs by TNA at Aritzia or even Forever 21.
A key part of any sportswear ensemble is what you put on your feet. I have always chosen Nike sneakers, and this Fashionista agrees with her neon orange pair. Whatever style or brand you choose, be bold with bright colors because the gym is one of the few places you don’t have to worry about matching your shoes!
One Simple Change: If you don’t have time to change your outfit before class, throw on the VS Knockout Jacket to look more pulled together.
