In the past couple of years, athleisure has moved from just being gym wear to comfortable everyday wear. Sportswear for women today is designed to be so versatile that you can wear it for a weight training session and later go grab coffee in. With fashion forecasts for the year predicting the continued popularity of multi-functional activewear, we have rounded 10 outfits you can wear to look your best in the gym and elsewhere.
1. Red and ready:
Activewear generally tends to be in neutral colours. You can play up the look by opting for separates in bright colours. For instance, this pair of red Ginger Textured Drawstring Waist Track Pants can be worn with a black or grey top for a spot of colour while walking on the treadmill. The textured polyester track pants come with a drawstring closure and two pockets. Outside the gym, pair it with a spaghetti-strapped top and sneakers and look casually chic.
2. The detail in the print:
If your fashion aesthetic falls in the ‘Less is More’ category, choose sportswear that is monochromatic or has subtle touches. The grey Kappa Printed Elasticated Sports Tights is on point with the 2023 prediction of muted gym wear for women continuing to rule. The polyester blend opaque tights are designed with printed detailing that is barely discernible. The muted shade and the elasticated band make these tights a versatile option. Pair with a crop top and lace-up shoes, and be ready for a workout or a drive around town.
3. Stay comfortable for longer:
A good sports bra offers its wearer several benefits, including comfort, better chest support, and full coverage. While shopping for a quality sports bra, fit, fabric, impact support, and style are factors you need to consider. The Kappa Solid Non-Padded Non-Wired Sports Bra in black is a good sportswear choice for women. Equipped with a non-padded, non-wired structure with back straps, the bra is designed for comfort and can be worn optimally for long hours. You can also pair it with a short skirt, skort, or shorts for a day out with your girlfriends.
4. Kick it in pink:
Women’s activewear in bright hues like pink, yellow, and orange are a welcome fashion statement for the cheer they add to the adrenaline-high vibes of a gym or a Pilates studio. Get ready to kick it in your next Zumba class in these pink KAPPA Women Solid Drawstring Sports Joggers. These ankle-length joggers are low-key and stylish, designed with a solid surface, elastic waistline, and a drawstring closure. Team them with a sports bra or a cropped sweatshirt for a run to the neighbourhood smoothie bar.
5. Shorts for all seasons:
The 90s fashion staple of cycling shorts is making a comeback and has been sported by Indian and international women celebrities for its high comfort quotient. Give your activewear an upgrade with the KAPPA Solid Elasticated Athletic Shorts. The elasticated shorts have an elasticated closure made for breathability. Coordinate the shorts with a pink or white jersey top and go cycling.
6. Keep it simple & sleeveless:
A sleeveless top with inspirational words or phrases is a classic in the sportswear for women category. This green KAPPA Printed Sleeveless Top with a round neck and prints is a breezy option that will make you look good anywhere you wear it. The top is multi-functional because it can be worn with workout pants or shorts for any kind of exercise. It can also be worn with jeans as casual day wear.
7. Cropped right:
The most popular style of tops today, especially among gen Z, crop tops are versatile wear that can be worn for a workout, a coffee date, or a music concert. This sporty V-neck Crop Top from Puma with a typographic printed surface and that arresting waistline is as trendy as when you are talking about sportswear for women. Team it with a pair of joggers and chunky sneakers to look with it.
8. Look fit and fresh:
Today, the options available for sportswear for women are so exhaustive that a sensible and sustainable hack to follow when shopping for your workout clothes would be to buy them according to your activity of interest. Pick yoga pants and tops if you are into yoga or functional tops and sports bras if HIIT is your workout of choice. This Solid Sleeveless T-shirt from PUMA in bubble-gum pink is an instant eye-catcher. Its scooped neckline ensures comfort and breathability when you wear it for a bout of TRX or a dance fitness workout. Pair it with a denim skirt, distressed jeans, and lace-up shoes for a casual lunch outing.
9. Go active in grey:
If you don’t want to scream your presence in a busy gym or dance studio, shop for activewear in toned-down colours like peach, pale pink, or grey. Look for tops with subtle prints or bold cuts, like this Kappa Printed Round Neck Sports Crop Top if you don’t want to compromise on style. While it is muted grey, the subtle patterning, sleek waistline, and cutaway at the back add sass to the overall look. Pair with the Kappa Printed Elasticated Sports Tights for a coordinated look. Switch up with a short white skirt for Sunday brunch.
10. Stay classic with black:
A pair of quality black leggings is one of the most popular women’s outfits that can double as casual and active wear. Have you been regular with your workout this entire month? Treat yourself to this pair of Solid Elasticated Leggings from KAPPA. It’s high on comfort and breathability and is wallet-friendly too. Pair with a sleeveless black crop top and white sneakers to look like a fitness ninja.
