Have you ever looked at pics of workout clothes and thought, “No one looks like that when they’re working out?” Seriously, their makeup is perfect, their clothes are on point, and they aren’t even making the weird faces we all make when we get into a workout (you know the ones).
But just because your workout doesn’t look like a stock photo of a model doesn’t mean you can’t look fly while you’re getting those gains. Our fresh tips for looking good while working out are the answer.
Focus On Fit
When people feel like they look bad in their workout clothes, it’s because they’re wearing clothes that bury them.
We get it; you want to make sure you can move. But working out is the time to show off that body. Look for clothes that give you room to move, but make sure they show the world what your workout’s doing for you.
Turn Up the Color
Workout clothes are practical above everything else. So, most of them don’t focus much on color. But that just means you’ll turn heads all the more when you show up decked out in your most vibrant colors.
And hey, if looking dope AF while you’re working out isn’t enough, bold colors like red naturally kick off our fight-or-flight instinct, making us more motivated to get moving. Our Bavin 2.0 and Gage short sets from our men’s streetwear shorts collection are just the things you need to see red during your workout.
Kick up Your Kicks
The right pair of shoes is essential for a successful workout. They give you the balance you need, whether you’re tearing up the track or the treadmill. And they’re also what’s going to complete your look.
Obviously, this doesn’t mean you have to pull out your Mid Triple White Air Jordans and stress out about scuffing them all day. But pick a pair of sneakers that will give you support and coordinate with your threads.
So you can’t exactly pull out your gold chain or your big hoops when you’re about to work out, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have options. A snapback or a sweatband is right at home at the gym, and they’ll help keep the sweat off your face.
A good workout doesn’t always look like a photo shoot, but you can still create gym looks that will make your post-workout Insta-pics look like an advertisement while getting swole. And Rockstar Original’s got your back with shorts, shirts, and hats that will elevate your workout style.
