If you thought there wasn’t a place for fashion and style in the gym, we may have some news for you. The gym attire you choose to wear while working out could drastically improve the way you reach your goals and hit your sets. Wearing athletic attire that you love is critical because when you look good, you feel good, and gyms are notorious for being a place where insecurities thrive.
And with the rise of the plus size athleisure trend, your gym attire can be worn on the daily for almost any occasion. If you’re not familiar with athleisure, it’s a style that typically prioritizes athletic wear or gym attire in everyday street style looks. While sporting the plus size athleisure trend could mean simply wearing your gym clothes out, more sophisticated outfits include articles of everyday clothing. So this means now is the perfect time to fill your closet with gym gear that makes you feel supported, confident and beautiful from Chic Soul’s plus size boutique.
Whether your go-to workout look is an all-black outfit or a bright neon set, here are some athletic wear trends we are loving for the gym right now, as well as some tips on how to maximize the looks for the athleisure trend.
