Are your new year’s resolutions about to go out the window? If you’ve all but quit the gym and stopped attending those yoga classes you’d swore you’d go to, you’re clearly in need of a little inspiration. Personally, I find that all my best inspo comes from fashion, and yours can too. If you’re struggling to stick to that resolution, to work out every day, you don’t need an exercise buddy, you need new workout gear. If you’ve got some stylish pieces to flaunt at the gym, you’ll be ten times more likely to make time to workout.
Want to make 2016 the year that you finally get in shape? Then have a read of how you can ensure your workout gear’s on trend.
Get Pinspired (Pinterest inspired)
The best way to get an idea of what workout look would suit you is by getting a little inspiration. For workout style, Pinterest is the perfect place - there are so many different looks to choose from. From yoga pants to sports bras, you’ll find plenty of on-trend inspo on here. Have a browse, get some ideas, and pin any pictures that you love. (You can return to these, later on, to help you choose the perfect pieces for your gym bag.)
Add color to your look
The gym is the one place where bright, bold colors can look amazing. The great thing about workout clothing is that almost anything goes, as long as it fits you well and looks good, that’s all that matters. While some of us choose to exercise in monochrome outfits, adding a splash of color is the perfect way to liven up your look.
Neon colors - pink, yellow and orange, are ideal for brightening up your workout attire. Be it a brightly colored sports bra of pair of trainers, it doesn’t matter, just find a way to add a little color to your look. According to the upcoming Kate Spade yoga clothes collection, red is the in color for workout wear this coming season. So, if you see anything red, grab it before it’s gone.
Pick up a cute quote t-shirt
Add a little excitement to your workout wear by investing in a few cute quote or phrases on. When it comes to keeping your workout regime up, a motivational t-shirt could be just what you need. Team it with a pair of plain yoga pants or running leggings, and you’re set for your workouts. As well as short sleeved tops, why not add a couple of long sleeved ones to your sports collection?
Don’t be afraid to add pattern
When it comes to sportswear, many of us avoid adding pattern. However, there’s no reason to do that as patterned sportswear can look amazing. It’s best to opt for dark pieces, however, as these tend to be the most slimming, and also, are less likely to show sweat.
Sportswear doesn’t have to be boring. There are so many ways that you can make what you wear to the gym more interesting. It shouldn’t just be a case of throwing on an old t-shirt and leggings, you should take pride in your workout wear.
