Staying healthy and looking good are two reasons people focus on their fitness. But during high-intensity workouts, you can’t help but look haggard and disheveled. With achieving a beautiful figure as one of the motivations for working out, looking sapped shouldn’t be part of the process. To maintain a stylish look even during intense cardio sessions, try revamping your workout wardrobe using the tips below.

Sweat Suit

When talking about sweatsuits, the first thing that comes to mind is the ones made of rubber material. Sure, rubber sweat suits can make you sweat a ton, but they will not make a stylish addition to your wardrobe. The kind of sweatsuit that will, however, is made of cotton or polyester fabric. Rocking sweatsuits can be a bit tricky, but the best kind is the slightly baggy ones that give you room to move and keep you comfortable during routines.

To make it fashionable, you can stock up on neon highlights for a pop of color or mute and neutral tones for a chic and luxurious vibe. To complete the look, you can put your hair up in a neat bun or into braids and finish it off with a pair of stylish running shoes.

Tank Tops

Freedom of movement is important when working out. Since you don’t want to be weighed down by heavy and bulky clothing, wearing a tank top will provide you with lightweight and comfortable training gear that allows for optimum movement. Tank tops become stylish depending on what you wear for your bottom piece. It can be easily partnered with any activewear, but you can also pair it with a tennis skirt, which will surely bring out its inherent style and make you look like a professional player. Who knows, you might even consider having a tennis or pickleball court constructed.

Bike Shorts

Bike shorts can go with almost anything. Celebrities like Gigi Hadid have even worn them with an oversized button-up shirt for an official event. With its flexibility, this activewear can be paired with a sports bra, a fitted or loose tank top, and even hoodies.

For added style, you can go ahead and get yourself a pair of bike shorts and a sports bra in matching print. Wearing this to the gym with the addition of a clean-cut blazer will turn you into an absolute head turner when heading home or stopping by a shop for some post-workout drink. Bike shorts also work well with tank tops and hoodies in single or two-toned colors.

Track Pants

Track pants are made of lightweight material and have a slightly fitted design that is loose around the ankles to keep wearers comfortable during workouts. Because of its comfortable design, it’s a common choice for individuals who love to work out. But as common as it is, it can still add a stylish touch to your wardrobe.

By pairing it with a tank top, a sports bra, or a fitted shirt, you can maintain a chic and stylish look even after various rounds of full-body cardio. You can even wear it for your casual engagements by tucking in a simple shirt and using a dainty sling bag to carry your essentials. To amp up your style, cap off your look with a sports cap and a pair of trainers.

Tracksuits

Tracksuits are composed of a jacket and trousers and can be ideal for your training or casual appointments. If you adore vibrant and loud colors, you can supplement your activewear collection with pairs of tracksuits in bright shades. Besides the colorful variants, you can also choose the ones with cropped hoodies or the pairs with animal or geometrical patterns. Its practical and comfy design makes it ideal for different sports, allowing you to partner it with running shoes, trainers, and basketball sneakers.

Joggers

Joggers are fashionable enough to not only be used for working out; it is also a permanent part of people’s casual wear. Depending on the type of engagement you’re heading to, this sports garment can be worn with sneakers, loafers, and even slides. Form-fitting hoodies, cropped tops, shirts, and tank tops would make a great partner for joggers. For accessories, you can use fanny packs and go as far as using your branded bags to add a luxurious touch.

Leggings

Another workout staple, leggings, is most people’s go-to activewear whenever short on time or lacking the energy to develop a stylish getup. But leggings are stylish, especially when coordinated with other fashionable pieces. Leggings accentuate your legs and give you a beautiful figure that makes your limbs look slender no matter the upper garment used. Leggings look great with shirts, sports bras, tank tops, and windbreakers. Just like joggers, leggings can also be partnered with different sneakers, depending on the kind of sport you’re going to do.

Be confident in your fitness journey by using the above-mentioned stylish pieces as motivation during your training sessions.
