Full disclosure: I am not a fitness expert, far from it. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that working out is more of a chore than a hobby – at least when it comes to weight training and cardio. Yoga and barre are way more enjoyable but a healthy lifestyle requires a little bit of every workout. Enter workout clothes. It’s no secret that cute workout clothes provide the ultimate #workoutmotivation for lazy fashion people. After all, who feels motivated to go to the gym in worn out sweatpants and a college t-shirt? A stylish workout outfit gets me one step closer to working out.
For example, yesterday I tried a pair of comfy reversible yoga pants courtesy of British brand Sweaty Betty and immediately felt energized to workout. Maybe it was the high-waisted fit that provides the perfect coverup for excess belly fat, making you feel an inch closer to your goals. Or the cool asymmetrical mesh panels that juxtaposed the soft pastel design. Either way, I felt like the best dressed person at the gym despite not being anywhere near perfect shape. Plus, the pants are so cozy I didn’t want to take them off. The pants are thicker and more opaque than my usual yoga pants but that means less worry about embarrassing sweat marks and more sweat absorption.
With pretty outfits like these, working out three times a week doesn’t seem so bad. Shop my favorite picks for spring below:
