How to Style Your Workout Clothes In & Out of the Gym



Workout clothing doesn’t just have to be reserved for the gym. In fact, the athleisure trend has been sweeping the globe in recent years, with everyone from A-list celebs to the woman next door rocking gym leggings for all occasions.

But is it really acceptable to wear yoga pants all day? What are the do’s and don’ts of wearing workout clothes outside of the gym? Keep reading as we discuss how you can style your new workout gear in and out of the gym…

1. Stay on trend

Until recently, fitness wear didn’t have trends. Gym clothing was all black, functional items with little thought for fashion. Fortunately, that’s all changed, and workout clothes have seasons, just like the rest of the fashion world.

If you’re going to be styling your gym gear outside of the gym, its important that its on trend so you don’t stick out like a sore thumb.

2. Accessorise

Whether its some statement specs, killer heels or a structured jacket, it only takes one item to transform your athleisure look from gym to glam. But make sure your accessories are in keeping with the sporty, sleek look to avoid looking mis-matched.

3. Play it safe

If you’re unsure on how to style athleisure or you’re not comfortable heading to the supermarket in bright blue leggings, sticking to neutral shades is best. Opt for a monochrome look or add a little vibrancy with a geometric print or slogan tee to ease your way into the style.

The most important fashion rule to follow is to make sure you’re comfortable in whatever you’re wearing, so choose something that will make you feel confident both in and out of the gym.

4. Dress for the occasion

Of course, the athleisure style isn’t suitable for every occasion. You wouldn’t want to turn up to a work meeting in a sports bra and leggings, just like you wouldn’t head to the gym in heels and a blouse.

The key to pulling off the athleisure style is knowing when to choose which pieces. Heading to the supermarket, picking the kids up, running errands, lunching with the girls… yoga pants are the perfect option for comfortable style.

Your personal style

In or out of the gym, workout clothes are a comfortable, stylish wardrobe staple for every modern woman. Whether you’re heading to a new class or off on the school run, do it in style with luxurious gym clothing from Njorun Active.
