Activewear, But Make it Extra Fancy: The New Athleisure

Many people think that when it comes to women’s athleisure, all you have to do is either have a set of white shirts, shorts, and trainers. But the truth is, you can look more attractive even in your workout clothes. All you have to do is follow some of the tips we’ll be talking about in this article. And no, “dressing up like you don’t care” is not a good way to look good.

Without further ado, let’s get on with our daily athleisure routine:

Your clothes should fit you well

It’s a common thing now to wear baggy clothes, or, for some scenes, to wear clothes that look like they are too small. A good rule of thumb is to athleisure clothing items that look like they are just about to hug the shape of your body. You should also leave enough “give” to move your body around without stressing the item of clothing too much.

Less is more

It’s okay to have all the colours of the rainbow in your closet, for all the occasions you may need them. But it’s not okay to wear more than three colours at the same time. Neither is it okay to be so full of bling that people think you’re some kind of rap artist or rock star (unless of course, you do perform onstage…). If you want to have a flashy accent at the gym, keep it classy.  A monochromatic workout garb is always best. You don’t need to accessorise especially when working out.

Keep your look unified

If you’re wearing a white ribbed sports bra, then jogging pants is a big no-no. Or, if you’re wearing a hoodie, don’t pair tattered running shorts with it. Your clothes should tell the same story, so mixing, say, your athleisure clothes with your old workout clothes is a fashion disaster that you shouldn’t find yourself doing. It’s not adventurous, it just looks wrong.

Be cautious with trends and logos

While it’s okay to update your wardrobe to look more modern every now and then, it’s a good idea to keep a central wardrobe core that has a timeless – if conservative – appeal. That way, you won’t be taken in by fashion trends that might fade away in a few months. In the same way, if you will wear an item of clothing with considerable branding, keep it to that item alone. Avoid the downfall of looking like a mannequin all dolled up for a weekend sale.

Kate Galliano’s athleisure line offers all types of workout and leisure clothing items in muted colours. You can’t go wrong with that! And with discrete and minimal branding on the clothes, you can keep up with the clean, modern style that is both on trend and timeless.

Shoes are a part of our wardrobe

Good clothes require a matching pair of workout shoes. A good pair of trainers can be the outstanding detail of your athleisure outfit, or it may be the item that makes your whole outfit look perfect. Invest in running shoes or workout shoes as you would in good clothes, and all the guidelines we’re talking about in this article are true for shoes as well.

Develop a look, and keep on experimenting

One of the most important things to do is to find your own “look” and then refine it, keeping in mind all the rules we’ve been talking about in this article. However, it’s not a bad idea to try new things as well, since adding a new detail here and there might lead to an evolution in your athleisure or activewear look, and who knows, it could be for the better, or it could be as simple as updating your look for what’s currently fashionable.

Make sure you have a friend with a good eye

Fashion isn’t just about self-expression; it’s also about the eye of the beholder. It would be a good idea to have a friend you can go shopping with, so you can get an idea of what looks good on you, as seen by an outsider. This also helps you stay honest, as even if you have a personal preference for something, it simply might not work with how you look, or how you are.
