So Fashion Week has moved from New York to Milan… and next week the runways will be all over Paris. February has us feeling fashion all month long… therefore it’s trending in our blog posts. ?
There’s no question: we are all more motivated in the gym when we are rocking new digs! It’s exactly like that age-old saying: “when you look good, you feel good,” so why not look your best in your workouts… since you are putting in the work to feel your best?! (Shopping for new workout gear can be so easily justified, can’t it?!)
This week we’re breaking it down: The Top 5 Hottest Fashion Trends in Fitness. Consider it your shopping list…
Stripes on Stripes on Stripes
Bold stripes will be all over for Spring 2017, and P.E. Nation took that trend to the studio with their newest collection. The Longest Yard Leggings by P.E Nation features a high-wasited, 7/8 length that finishes above the ankle. With a diagonal print design to enhance your natural shape, the super lightweight four-way stretch fabric moves with your body, giving you infinite mobility. Purchase these hot pants here.
The classic of all stripe classics, Adidas has made the three stripes their signature look from the beginning. Check out this new variation, though… still all Adidas, still all stripes, still always a must-have. Another big trend you’ll see for Spring 2017 is logos. Logos, logos, logos. On handbags, on t-shirts, on anything you can slap a logo on… and Adidas is doing it right. Gotta have ’em? Check them out here.
Look Back At It
lululemon is always a real crowd pleaser. We love them so much, we have Sip & Shop events with them at the studio on the reg! This top is the perfect slouchy fit with an open back, to help keep you cool when you are sweating it out on the bike. Definitely one of our favs! To add this to your arsenal… click here.
The back detail trend is h-o-t, cross our hearts! Here’s another example, with a little more fashion flair, which makes you feel like you can easily take this top from the mat to grabbing a smoothie after class with your fellow yogis! This strappy number is by Beyond Yoga and is too too cute not to own. Do you hear that? I think I’m hearing “buy me… buy me…” OK, click here.
The Strappier, The Better
And since we’re all rocking open-back tanks… why not show off our super strappy sports bras?!
Reebok teamed up with supermodel Gigi Hadid to literally bring the fashion runway scene to their gym. Whether you require light support, medium support, or full support, there is a strap-happy option out there for you.
Athleta combines the stripe trend with their version, shown here. These trendy sports bras are too cute to be hidden under your t-shirt. Show some skin while you break your sweat, and show off the results of your hard work and earned self-confidence!
Show Some Skin in See-Through Details
Gone are the days of boring black running tights! If bright prints and patterns are too out loud and proud for you, opt for new tights with a different kind of detail. This pair, by Athleta, is working both cut-outs and mesh inserts, and are meant to be worn both in and out of the gym.
Mesh inserts, cut outs, or laser cuts… the more detail and peeks at skin, the better. High waisted, low waisted, full length, capri length, or the new 7/8 length… we’re seeing skin from everyone. This pair, by alo yoga, are far from basic… combining in a perfect mix both fashion and function.
Crop Tops for the Win
Whether it’s seen in your cover-up, taking you to and from class, or your top worn on the gym floor, the higher waistbands have lent themselves to shorter, cropped top trends. This jacket, by alo yoga, is the perfect street to studio piece to throw-on with those laser-cut leggings and that strappy sports bra.
This top, by lululemon, was designed with any bra in mind, with it’s wide straps and a high neck. It also takes the distraction of extra fabric out of your workout, be keeping things fitted with purpose.
So there you have it: the top 5 fashion trends being seen in the fitness world… also known as your workout wardrobe update hit list! Guys, don’t worry… we wouldn’t want you to feel left out, so we’ll be revamping your closet next!
