Best And Worst Use Of Gym Outfits Outside Of The Gym

October 29, 2019

The trend called athleisure has become pretty popular. As comfort is the most important thing, we often see gym wear worn outside of the gym. However, there are some rules when it comes to the clothes you can wear in and outside of the gym. 

Some of the outfits and trends that have no place in the gym are heavy makeup, because it gets messy, plus it is not good for your skin as you are sweating. Regular bras, especially if they are worn-out are not a good idea, because you will not be comfortable. We would also recommend staying away from clothes that are too tight or oversized as they can be uncomfortable to wear, plus they can make it difficult for you to do some exercises. Furthermore, some running footwear may not be suited for use inside the gym. It is best to check out the ten best gym shoes at ShoeAdviser to get you guided.

So, now that we have covered all the do nots, let us move on to what gym clothes you can wear outside of the gym.

Sports shoes

Maybe the biggest trend when it comes to athleisure is wearing sneakers with jeans, skirts, and dresses. Cuffed jeans, even casual trousers, as well as maxi dresses, and miniskirts with ruffles look very trendy when you pair them with a basic t-shirt and sneakers. It is the perfect stylish, street look that is comfortable as well. The popular colors are pastel pink, beige, white, or bolder like black, and dark red.

Gym shorts

We have seen it on Kim Kardashian numerous times. Bike shorts are a part of high-quality woman streetwear fashion that you can style with the most formal pieces and get a stylish, edgy look. High heels, an oversized blazer, and a statement belt make a perfect outfit for even some fancy, more formal occasions. If you like more casual outfits, you can wear a hoodie with the same shorts and some sneakers for a relaxed, sporty look.

Crop tops 

Crop tops have been a huge trend for years now. They are comfortable gym wear because they are light wear, comfortable, and they go great when paired with high-waisted bottoms. However, many crop t-shirts, as well as hoodies, found their way into everyday, street style. High waisted jeans, maxi cotton skirts, shorts, and leggings paired with crop tops  and busty lingerie will emphasize your waist, and show off your figure in a casual look you can wear to a lot of daytime occasions. 


Leggings are probably the favorite and most worn piece of activewear. Aside from being super comfortable, they are easy to style, and they go great with many different outfits and styles. You can create perfect casual looks by wearing them with a denim jacket, or oversized sweater, even a coat. Add a stylish cap, and you will be ready to go. On the other hand, if you want more formal looks with leggings, a tunic, a blouse, and even a shirt can look great. Just make sure you choose the appropriate print, and our suggestion is to go monochromatic and wear all-black in these situations.

Additional advice

Whenever you decide to wear activewear as a part of your daily outfits, you should pay attention to a few details. Picking the right fabrics is crucial because when you mix them it will look more like a stylish outfit rather than a true gym look. Picking the right clothes on different occasions is important, so make sure you make activewear a part of your daily activities that are not as formal. An easy way to make everything look more stylish, and classy is to pick monochrome looks and layer your outfits with jackets, and coats. Add accessories carefully because you don’t want it to be too much. A scarf, cap, or hoop earrings are more than enough to style up any of these outfits.

We agree that every piece of clothing has its place and occasion. However, the beauty of the athleisure trend is that you don’t have to give up your favorite gym clothes, and can incorporate them in stylish outfits. We were hopefully able to recommend a few trendy ways to do it.
