What you wear while working out is obviously not the most important thing in the world, however wearing the right outfit to the gym or even at home can boost your confidence and enhance your workout. I’ve never been the type to spend hundreds of $$$ at a Nike Outlet Store or any fitness store for that matter, but if I see something cute and it’s on sale then I’ll grab it!
If you read this blog post, about why I started working out, then you’ll know that I exercise at home and don’t have a gym membership. The outfits that I wear while working out are for me, and me only. It’s not about trying to impress anyone (there’s no one to impress if I’m at home anyway) but rather feeling good. When you look good, you feel good.
Here are some tips for creating your perfect workout wardrobe!
Buy matching sets.
Matching sets are so satisfying and super easy to pair when you’re about to workout.
Aim for neutral colours.
Don’t get me wrong, bright colours are poppin and can also boost your energy, but neutrals will be so much easier to make outfits with! Go for black, white, olive green, tan, navy, and grey!
Invest in the better quality items.
There is a big price difference if you’re choosing between cotton or spandex and dry-fit, but in the long run you’ll want to invest that little bit more into pieces that will last. Skip the cotton leggings, they won’t last long!
Design and texture is everything.
Sports bras in specific have so many different designs and straps, so why choose the boring ones?! Buy the ones with a little mesh or multiple straps. They make you feel good and they’re especially cute when you take progress pics 😉 The same goes for leggings too! Try mesh stripes or a mesh strip up the side of your leg.
Check Marshalls, Winners, and Ross.
It doesn’t hurt to look for cheaper designer options right? Check your local discounted stores for popular brands like Nike and Adidas.
