When it comes to picking clothes for the gym, you need to ensure that you will be as comfortable, and as flexible, as possible, but this can often mean opting for an outfit that you would not normally want to be seen in. Fortunately, there are a number of activewear brands that have decided to tackle this dilemma, creating practical yet stylish lines that can easily be worn straight from the street to the gym.
While some of the pieces from //OUT Incorporated may look too gorgeous to sweat in, this is exactly what they were designed for, crafted from fabrics that are not only extremely breathable, but also shape-smoothing. From an asymmetrical tank top with ruched detailing at the sides, resulting in a fashion forward look that is so comfortable for the gym, to an asymmetrical layering bra that can be worn in so many different ways, these pieces have all been so thoughtfully designed, resulting in a line that perfectly emulates the concept of high fashion activewear.
Crane & Lion
The activewear pieces from Crane & Lion are extremely functional and look great both on the go as well as at the gym. Their Jogger Pant has quite a masculine quality to it, almost seeming as though you have borrowed them from your boyfriend, but moulds itself to the female form in a beautiful way, while their Capri Tight features back and side seams that are flattering and slimming. While their Long Sleeve Tee may not be suitable for this summer, it is another great piece to invest in for when the weather starts to turn cooler.
KiraGrace is a yoga line, creating pieces using fabrics that feature a four-way stretch, so while these are great for all of your yoga positions, they are also super comfortable to wear on the street. The brand’s Warrior Tough Cut Leggings embrace the cut-out trend that has been seen everywhere recently, bringing some contemporary fashion to your workout session, while the Boot Camp Camo Pocket Tight are tights that feature a stunning print and an earth tone palette, making them easy to style with other pieces.
Move by Alternative Apparel is a line that has included some really useful features into their garments. Their Flex It Tank Top boasts two pockets with zips, meaning that you now have somewhere safe to store your locker key and any other valuables when at the gym. The brand’s Lean Into It Leggings are great for those who feel that traditional yoga pants are just slightly too tight, as these are tight enough to allow your body to properly flow, but not too constricting either.
Staying stylish at the gym can definitely be tough, which is why these activewear brands have really managed to stand out from their competition with these fabulous street to gym pieces. Not only are these pieces fashionable, functional and comfortable, but they are also easy to style with all of the other gym clothes you already have in your wardrobe.
