It’s the start of the new year and one resolution that’s tried and true is getting back in the gym. But so many lose motivation throughout the year. Updating your workout wardrobe is one way to keep the momentum going. Here are a few tips that will help you keep your gym attendance in check!
It’s easy to come up with reasons why you shouldn’t go to the gym but who could resist such a cute tote bag at the front of the door? Invest in something that can help you get gym ready on the go and look good while doing it!
INVEST IN A GOOD BRA
A good sports bra should make you feel confident and keep your “girls” out the way, so you can focus on working out. Take pride in your sports bra because sooner that later you’ll be at a point where you can show it off with no hesitation. “A brighter bra draws attention to the top half of your body in a flirty, subtle way,” says trainer Tracy Anderson, whose clients include Gwyneth Paltrow.
ELIMINATE THE PANTY-LINES
Everything shouldn’t be so visible and panty lines are at the top of the list! There is nothing worst than getting the WRONG type of attention. Invest in Low Rise Thongs that are comfortable and most importantly INVISIBLE.
FAKE IT ‘TILL YOU MAKE IT
A stretch-knit athletic tank featuring a ladder-cutout back, a round neckline, and wide armholes will hide the places that you’re working on until they are ready for public view. “It will downplay any area that you’re self-conscious about, such as love handles, saddlebags, or a saggy butt,” says Anderson.
ACCENT YOUR LEGS
As every women knows, black is always slimming and especially when it comes to the legs. A pair of athletic leggings crafted from moisture management is perfect for getting the job done and looking cute while doing it. A pair of stretch knit leggings with a hidden key pocket and mesh inserts on the front of each leg is perfect for looking good on the step master!
MATCH THE LEGGINGS WITH THE SHOES
Tight black leggings are good but you must complete the look. Everyone knows that it is a cardinal sin to wear white socks with black shoes (unless you’re imitating Michael Jackson for the night) and vice versa but what else? To minimize your feet an all black form fitting shoe is best and if you already have small feet, jazz it up with neon colors.
PRESERVE YOUR HAIR WITH THE PERFECT HEADBAND
To sop up sweat, tame flyaways, and give a nod to one of fashion’s hottest trends, layer two cotton headbands around your hairline so the elastic won’t create a deep ridge in your hair and your blowout won’t get wrecked. Choosing the proper hue can also perk up your skin. Cool shades (blue, green, and purple) complement fair complexions; warmer tones (red, yellow, and orange) are best for olive or dark skin.
