STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Fashionably Fit

Working out is never an easy thing to do. The combination of sweat, pain and tears can sometimes dissuade people in their journey to become strong and fit. However, what most people don’t realize is wearing great clothes can be really helpful in getting the most out of a workout. People always say wearing new workout clothes inspires them to get out there and do what they need to do. It is hard to believe something so superficial can have any impact on your workout, but think about it: when you wear great workout clothes, do you push yourself more? The answer is different for everyone, but it is definitely something to consider.

This Fashionista certainly lives by that theory and is dressed for success! A fun element she has incorporated into her look is neon colors. Neon colors have always been a fun option for workout clothes, especially in the ’80s and in more recent years. There’s something about wearing lively, eye-catching colors that gets people to try harder in their workouts. However, it’s important not to pair neon colors that clash. Wearing contrasting colors is a great tactic, but try choosing ones that complement each other.

If you choose to wear brightly colored clothes, it’s okay to wear more neutral colored shoes. This Fashionista’s black sneakers are perfect for what she’s wearing because it ties the whole look together. If it were another color her outfit could quickly become an eyesore, and if they were more of the same colors she’s wearing the look would seem tacky. Still, the small neon accents on her shoes keep the fun flair in a subtle way.

Lastly, this Fashionista has decided to use her headphones as a practical accessory. Since most people use headphones during their workout anyway, why not find a fun way to add them to your look as it kills two birds with one stone! This Fashionista’s headphones accent her bottoms, and the wireless feature is a great and useful option for her workout.

In the end, who says you can’t look good working out?
