Fashion 101: How to Rock Cute Workout Gear

I love working out. Love it. It makes me feel good, look good, relieves stress and puts me in an awesome mood. Why is it, then, that I exercise only about once a month on average? Well, it could be because I am lazy. Or that I am too busy with work. Or that I would rather spend my evenings sucking down pints of Blue Moon instead of waiting in line for a free elliptical machine. I’m sure many of you are in the same boat. But I think I found a solution for chronic exercise avoidance: New clothes, duh!

A new sports wardrobe may be just the thing to kickstart a new workout regime. When you get a new party dress, you can’t wait to wear it out. Perhaps the same is true with workout gear? Let’s hope. Or else it’s gonna take James Franco guest teaching coed naked spinning to get me motivated again!

I have culled a selection of the cutest workout clothes out there, tailored to your individual sporting need. I in fact, have never played some of these sports, but being suitably intrigued by the options for gear, I may take some of them up.

    but what about those of us who are morbidly obese…and going to the gym to lose the weight and feel healthier? they just don’t make cute workout clothes for us…

    This is a cool post and all but where can I buy these? Esp the shorts and the retro top?

    To Meri, I agree, it is probably more difficult for you to find cool work out gear but that should not stop you. I am/ was in the same boat. How about sweats, a t-shirt and a funky head band? Cool socks? Sneakers that show off your personality? Take things step by step and focus on the things you do have influence over. FASHION/ Ready made clothing is sooo overated!

    Maybe it makes me vain, but I love that I get to wear my fold-over yoga pants with the black camisole when I go jogging. Simple, yes, but I love seeing the difference in my body plain as day.
