Sportswear has become streetwear. Rather than tweed jackets, penny loafers, and khakis, young people [and even middle-aged people] turn to sports brands for their day-to-day wear. Because of this, people looking to invest in sports clothes for their intended purpose, sports, can buy clothes that are chic and fashionable – clothes that’ll draw attention when they jog past. Looking fashionable and chic while exercising can give you a much-needed confidence boost – especially if you are prone to self-doubt and anxiety. A nice, fashionable, chic tracksuit could make your exercise sessions ten times better.
In this article, we are going to tell you how you can make your sports wardrobe look fashionable and chic. With that said, you should not feel obligated to conform to fashion because that’s what everybody else is doing. You are a free agent and not a slave to brands – remember that. Confidence can be obtained from within and does not need to rely on clothing brands and the acceptance of others. If you feel that you are not very confident and think the first thing you need to do is to draw for a designer item of clothing you need to think again.
Anyway, moving back to our titular question: how to make your sports wardrobe look fashionable and chic; let’s find out how shall we?
What You’re Wearing
First and foremost, your clothes themselves need to be fashionable and chic. The way in which you can do this is to carefully browse catalogues, look at books, and pages to find out what’s hot right now. Fashion trends change like the weather, so keep up to date through the methods just mentioned. You can also try to stay one step ahead of the trend and invest in brands that are up-and-coming and will soon be fashionable – this will garner you the label of ‘trendsetter’ which is certainly, as far as fashion society goes, the greatest label one can attain.
Be sure to browse in outlet stores and retail centres for brands that are clearly very fashionable but that have not yet gained attention from the consumer masses. Sooner or later you’ll strike gold. An example of this is the brand Palm Angels. Not that long ago it was virtually unknown outside of Italy, but after several American and British musicians began wearing it, it blew up, and all of the people who wore it in its infancy were considered to be ahead of their time.
How You Wear It
It doesn’t just come down to what you wear, but how you wear it. We’ve all seen people wear the most expensive, luxurious clothes, yet look like complete fools. Yes, it’s about how you wear it. With that said, we’re not advocating you try to make everything you wear overly edgy, but rather, wear your clothes the right way and with your own personal flair added to them. Make combinations of clothes that other people are not doing. You will quickly find that, over time, people will begin to look to you as a style icon – even if it’s just at the gym.
Make sure you always wear clothes that fit you, for starters. Many people, at the gym and on the street, wear clothes that clearly do not fit or suit them, and because of this, wind up looking terribly unaware of their own style and fashion. Wear your clothes appropriately and according to the situation, too. If you’re going on the treadmill, wearing knee high riding boots isn’t going to cut it, is it? To summarise: dress appropriate, to your size, and add your own flair into your outfits.
Is It Practical?
To continue from one of the last points mentioned in our last paragraph, your clothes must be practical. There’s little sense in wearing something impractical, especially if it’s sportswear and you’re exercising. For exercise, your clothes need to be practical above all, lest you injure yourself or make yourself look incredibly foolish. Practicality is of utmost importance when it comes to sportswear, you can’t go around, as just mentioned, in a pair of riding boots at the gym, can you? Nor can you go to riding school in a pair of sneakers.
Thankfully, however, equestrian clothing, and gym clothing, are easily sourced so as to achieve practicality. Yes, according to the riding experts from Ayr Equestrian, riding clothes are competitively and economically priced so you can source the best of the best when you need it. Practicality should be at the forefront of your mind. You must always ensure that you dress according to the situation and that your clothes are suited to the activity. Exercising in inappropriate clothing can actually cause injuries to occur in the act of exercising. Dress accordingly, appropriately, and well at all times.
Wear Your Clothes!
When you’re buying sportswear, be sure to wear them. Many people hoard and collect expensive, designer sportswear, yet never wear them. Sportswear goes out of fashion very quickly, so holding onto sportswear and never wearing it, in our opinion, is a waste. What’s the point in buying an item of clothing that you’re never going to enjoy? Wear your clothes and enjoy them. A whole wardrobe of expensive tracksuits that never get touched will very quickly become worthless and you won’t look very fashionable or chic walking around in a two-year-old tracksuit now, will you? People do pay attention to things like that, you know.
Enjoy your clothes, even if they are expensive. Hey, if you can afford to offset large sums of money on expensive designer items of clothing, then go ahead, but be sure to wear it. If you’re spending above your budget and buying items of clothing that are of no use to you [because you do not intend on wearing them], we assure you you’re wasting time and money. Wear your items of clothing and enjoy them – what else are they for? You can’t be chic if nobody see your clothes.
