How to: Work up a sweat in style

When it comes to working out, a little motivation goes a long way! There’s no reason why you can’t look good while you work up a sweat. Ahead, we give you a few tips on how to banish boring gym-wear.

Colour yourself happy!


You don’t need neon flashes to stand out in your gym-wear – colour block with cool pastels and strike envy among your gym buddies!




Mix and match with a solid hue top and a pair of cool printed joggers. Working out has as much to with your brain as it does with your body – if you don’t think you can, you probably can’t! Trading in your boring gym neutrals for some colours and prints will help those endorphins get flowing.

Make like a rebel


Fitness may be in trend, but some of us just hate the thought of entering a gym. Why not channel that into the way you dress and turn up looking like a carefree rebel?




There’s something really cool about wearing a muscle tee with a printed sports bra peeking from the sides. Pair them with capri’s that have mesh inserts – it’s the only time you should be seen sporting a ‘capri’!

Spruce up this gymwear-with-an-attitude ensemble with a pair of sneakers in a colour that pop and a top knot that says you mean business.

Pumped-up accessories


Turn up the volume with a cool pair of headphones that help you set the pace for your workout and make that high pontail look uber chic!



Reach for a printed mat that might just motivate you for the next series of surya namaskars at your next yoga class.

Calorie counters and activity trackers are all the rage right now, while a sporty Apple watch would be ideal for this purpose, reach out for slightly more affordable options out there that help you feel motivated constantly.
