ACTIVE FASHION COMFORTS: LEARN HOW TO WEAR YOUR FAVORITE ACTIVEWEAR IN AND OUT THE GYM. FOLLOW STAIY’S TIPS TO BE CHIC AND VERSATILE WHILE WEARING YOUR SNEAKERS AS IF THEY WERE YOUR SIX INCHES HEELS.

Words By Alessandra Di Perna

Activewear is not only about comfort. Wearing athleisure can also make you feel empowered, determined and convey just how motivated you are to make changes in your life. Women who feel confident in sportswear can indicate a semblance of balance in their life; they care and are invested in their health, while standing up for body-positivity.

During quarantine, sportswear became many of our best friends, as we laid around to feel more relaxed, as we began exercising at home and while we wore sweatpants for video calls. Slowly returning back to (once) normal life, activewear is now no longer only reserved for workouts and has safely secured a spot in our wardrobes.

So why not give a chance to your gym fits, step out of the gym, onto the streets and make your outfit unique? Here are few tips on how to rock your comfiest looks from work, to hang-outs with friends and afternoon dates:

Color is Confidence

For an empowering look in a gym environment, prefer patterned leggings and vivid colors to embrace your moves. When opting for everyday outfits, go for more refined, neutral colors or black. These are perfect to give an effortless chic and minimalist vibe, without requiring any major attention to detail, as you can pair them with almost everything.

Layer It Up

A co-ord set or a matching jumper can often be an easy option when you want to fly a bit under the radar. Step up your athleisure game and add dimension by combining different textures, colors and pieces. Adding a bright sports bra under a white crop top, or fancy socks over black leggings can allow you to style the same pieces in different ways, by only changing a few details.

Mix & Match

While exercising you need to feel comfortable and supported, but when going out we often want to feel ‘cool’. One of the trendiest ways this season is to mix different styles and textures, avoiding a 90s lycra vibe. Yoga leggings paired with an edgy denim jacket and statement sneakers will give your metropolitan outfit a sportive touch.

Want to get the latest influencer look? Just pair an oversized blazer with literally everything: whether you choose grey sweatpants or trendy cycling shorts, show off some skin with a sport bra and a pair of big boss woman sunnies. Then just pose and you are ready for the gram!

Quality Is Key

There is often the tendency to pick older, tatty clothing to workout in without worry of ruining it. What we do not consider is how those holed t-shirts or faded prints contribute to our motivation for exercise. If we are not feeling good in ourselves already, surely wearing these pieces will only make it worse?

To address this without having to completely revolutionise your wardrobe, pick just a few essential, yet high-quality pieces that embrace your curves gently. Plain colours usually go with everything, we can wear them everywhere to get good use out of them and will help you feel that motivation far more.

Moving your body generates endorphins and with this guide, you will now help keep them in continuous production to get motivated each and every day.
