If 2017 is the year for being mindful and fit at the same time – all with the increasing focus on physical and mental strengthening yoga – then it is also definitely the year to up your active-wear game.
What you wear has a significant impact on how you view yourself and how confident you appear. As such, every gym-goer needs a kick-ass wardrobe to smash that workout. A few must have items to keep with the latest activewear trends in 2017 include:
Sweat Friendly Bomber Jackets
Bomber jackets are a fashion statement that never gets old. It’s the perfect addition to any wardrobe for that slightly edgier, fabulous look without overdoing it. It’s only right that the article of clothing that is so popular in trendy fashion make its way into the activewear trends this year. The silk bomber jackets and oversized parkas are the statement pieces that are now available in the market, outfitted with modified fabrics that allow you to wear them to and from your next workout without worrying about sweat stains.
Performance Friendly Bralettes
Sports bras have almost always been purely functional rather than fashionable. However, 2017 is switching things up in that direction. The latest trend involves fancy but high performance friendly bralettes that provide the best support and look absolutely fantastic donned on. What more could you possibly want?
With the shift in focus towards mindful yoga as well as other fusion workouts, the need for the perfect outfit to manage all manner of maneuvers has been realized. As such, the unitards are taking center stage in the activewear industry. Form fitting, comfortable and uniquely feminine, the unitards are must to keep you moving beautifully and gracefully through your workout, without any wardrobe mishaps in the process.
The Loose Shorts
Another trend that’s making waves this year is the loose high-cut boxer style shorts worn with form fitted sports bras. The shorts go a long way in keeping you comfortable during your workouts without feeling like you’re being suffocated like some yoga pants/shorts can make you feel.
Criss-Cross, Cut-Outs and Open Back Tanks
Last but not the least, the tank trend is one that every woman that focuses on her workout will enjoy. The criss-crossed straps, with strategic asymmetric cut-outs and open back tank tops are a popular choice this season in activewear. This is a trend that has made its way into athletic-wear straight from the red carpets. Not only is this trend extremely pretty, it is equally functional for the fitness enthusiast. With these tanks, breathability is no longer a concern when choosing workout gear.
