Slay your athleisure looks on the court or off. Refresh your activewear wardrobe with these fashion essentials.
1. Joggers & track pants
Track pants and joggers matched with a t-shirt is effortless fashion to keep pace. Comfort is key here so breathable fabrics such as cotton blends are your best bet. Easy fits with elastic waists or drawstrings do well.
Perfect for when you’re out with your friends, shorts can be your go-to activewear during the day. They do well for a quick dash to the market, to run errands or even to lounge about in the house. For activewear that has a relaxed feel about it – there’s nothing like shorts.
3. Crew neck & polo tees
Nothing lets you complete your workout better than a comfy t-shirt that you can throw on. Try out crew neck, polo or full-sleeve t-shirts to see what works best for you and have a good variety in your closet.
4. Sports shoes
Black sports shoes are universal but there’s nothing like a pair of coloured sneakers for extra appeal. A few pairs of shoes for different purposes – one for running, one for weightlifting and a pair for your casual outings would do nicely.
5. Hoodies & sweats
If you’re not a morning person and prefer to get your fitness dose in the evening, it may be a good idea to carry along a hoodie or wear a cotton sweatshirt which provides just the right amount of cover for early winter evenings.
- Sportswear or activewear need not always be extremely casual. Take a leaf out of quirky fashion diaries and pair those sports shoes with ethnic fashion and make heads turn.
- Mix, match and have fun. Banish boring by switching t-shirts with different lowers and vice versa. Add a fun sporty perfume to enhance the mood.
- Turn up for a lunch-time outdoor date in activewear – charm her with your easy confidence.
