Street to Gym Activewear

Activewear

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.

Street to Gym Activewear

 

//OUT Incorporated
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
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
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.

Latest Trends in Men’s Fashion – OROGOLD Reviews

When it comes to menswear, fall/winter 2015-2016 is set to be an extremely stylish season. From draped outerwear to bold prints and patterns, menswear is once again ignoring conventions in order to provide men with a much greater variety of trendy fashion options. ORO GOLD offers insights into the latest trends in men’s fashion.

Woollen Coats
The trend for the majority of menswear garments seemed to focus on looser cuts, and this was especially so in the outerwear that was shown at all of the major fashion weeks. The most popular coats for the season were cut and draped from wool, featuring soft shoulders that enhanced the over-sized and slouchy vibe.

Super-Sized Pockets
The super-sized pockets trend will be welcomed by all those men who hate to carry bags around with them. This season, pockets are going to be bigger than ever, and will most likely be the focus of many outerwear pieces. The pockets, iPad Mini sized at the minimum, will be cut from contrasting fabrics and attached onto the garment in prominent positions, offering style and functionality at the same time.

Bold Patterns and Textures
Bold patterns and textures that stand out were seen on looks by many designers, and were applied to a variety of garments, from classic suits to full outfits. The more fashion forward styles were the ones that featured unconventional prints and patterns, although there were also plenty of plaid looks that were seen, which are great for men who aren’t as keen on taking risks with big patterns. If you are looking for other toned down designs, there were plenty of square patterns and patches seen on the runways, used in both big blocks of color, but also used more subtly on jeans and coats.

Layered Knits
Once again, knitwear has made its mark on menswear. Sweaters were seen on many runways, often paired with tailored trousers for a casual yet classy look. Different textures were mixed together in one outfit, emphasized by the ways in which different knitted garments were layered over each other. As was seen on the Pringle and Margaret Howell runways, an easy way to layer knitwear is to purchase a thin rollneck, made from merino wool, that can be worn under thicker knits. Rollnecks were seen peeking out from other knits, such as handspun cardigans and cashmere pullovers, at many shows, and white rollnecks, as seen at Balenciaga and Sandro, seemed to be a new trend all on their own.

Green and Gray
In terms of color, grays dominated many runways, in a whole variety of shades and textures. Although gray is a common color in menswear, the way that it was styled and used in both tailored garments as well as tracksuit bottoms, has turned the color into a big trend for this season. The second most popular color was green, again in a huge variety of shades, from forest green to mint green to military green. These two colors were present on all of the major runways, including London, Milan and Paris, so you can expect to see more of them this season.

One of the best things about keeping track of menswear trends is learning how to later incorporate them into your own personal look. From layered knitwear to super-sized pockets, these garments are likely to dominate men’s clothing stores this season, so it is a good idea to decide in advance which would work best for your own style.
