Just because you are wearing sportswear doesn’t mean that you can’t be stylish as well. But it also doesn’t mean that you have to spend hours and hours in front of a mirror making sure that you get your outfit just right. With this in mind, let’s look at a few simple ways in which you can make your sporty outfit that little bit more stylish by following a couple of easy life rules.

Zippered Warm Up Jackets

Zippered warm up jackets are perfect for wearing before and after working out, and they are obviously great while you are warming up as well. However, you don’t really want to coordinate this directly with your bottom half as it looks way too much like you are wearing a shell suit. If you want to wear this item when you are not actually going to be working out anytime soon, you could try coordinating it with a patterned t-shirt and some jeans.

Yoga Pants

One of the most talked-about fashion items of the last few years, yoga pants seem to be one of those ‘love ‘em or hate ‘em’ items. However, they are available in a wide range of colours and styles and there is no doubt that they are very comfortable. For a casual look, you could try combining them with a fitted wrap top and sneakers.


Once again, these are all about the comfort but that doesn’t mean that your sneakers can’t look great too. Try some brightly coloured ones for day to day wear. If you aren’t sure what to pair them up with, go for an on-trend dress, ideally in a shirt style or off-the-shoulder. You could even go a little more retro with some classic Adidas ones available from Instead of having to worry about your feet in heels, a good pair of sneakers will keep your feet feeling great all day long.

Neutral Makeup

If you are going off to the gym, you don’t want your makeup to be too heavy as this can quickly become very frustrating. Instead, go for something neutral that leaves your skin looking tanned and fresh with neutral or brownish tones. Added to this, you could go for some bright lip gloss to provide the finishing touches.

Branded T-shirts

It is funny how fashion changes to drastically over the years. It wasn’t all that long ago when you would never have been caught dead in a nt-shirt from a company like Nike or Adidas. But now, you can match one up with a smart blazer and you are good to go. However, if you are wearing sportswear in your daily life, you don’t want to overdo it.

Sportswear in fashion looks like it is something that is here to stay, and if you are planning to incorporate it into your regular outfits, you want to make sure that you get it right. You can use these five points as a starting point and then work from here.
