Gone are the days where most women turned up at the gym in saggy tights and an old t-shirt they stole from their boyfriend. These days, what you choose to wear as you hit a work out, does more than just give you a bit of an aesthetic boost. From making a statement, through to defining your attitude and personal flair – your activewear should give you more grunt in your gym session.
If you’re staring at your workout wardrobe and feel it needs a bit of a kick-start in the right direction, there are easy ways you can opt for a simple revamp. Enter athleisure wear – clothing that takes you from the gym to the street, all with a stylistic edge that gives you more than just a functional fit. And this year, it’s all about these vibes.
Sleek gym gear meets a street-orientated attitude
Exploring the field of athleisure means you’re given a chance to delve into the world of on-trend, well-made gym clothing that’s designed to look a little sexy. One of our notable favourites is Brick City Villin’s range of women’s gym clothing, which features apparel that will have you hitting your personal bests, all the while able to head straight out to brunch afterwards.
In 2019, we’re also expecting to see plenty of unisex clothing labels rising to popularity; think oversized t-shirts and track jackets. But while unisex apparel offers a comfortable fit and versatility across the board, you may find a need to search for options that give you a suitable look for your personal tastes. If the unisex appeal isn’t for you and you prefer a more feminine touch, a hooded crop paired with some sleek booty shorts will do the trick.
Tights aren’t going anywhere
The number one staple when it comes to women’s gym clothing, however, still has a set of killer tights top at the priority list, with this go-to piece remaining the dominator for 2019.
Current styles include higher waist-lines, mesh cut-outs that show just the right amount of skin, and NFL-inspired lace-up fronts. Don’t forget the matching sports bra to complete your gym look and an open jacket, and you’re ready to hit the streets.
Enter the jumpsuit
If you really want to up your look and some attention, (the right kind), mix things up by adding a jumpsuit to your gym wear repertoire. The Brick City Villin ‘Premium’ jumpsuit high on our must-haves, with an eye-catching open back and zippered front.
Finally, don’t underestimate the importance of accessories for the ultimate active look. Easy ways to incorporate these include an option for a snazzy cap to complete the outfit (and to keep hair out of your face), as well as sweatbands to help you mop up as you go. When your gym wardrobe is on-point, you’ll find your performance is to, so be ready for what your workout has to throw at you.
