You can have both; all you need are a few chic workout wear pieces that you can mix and match to create cute, comfortable and chic gym wear.

Celebrities make a habit of going to the gym is super chic, high fashion sportswear and we think every day fashionistas should get in on the chic workout wear style.

As a base for a good workout wardrobe you’ll need a few key items.  The first are yoga pants in various lengths, some knee length and others full trouser length. Yoga pants are perfect for exercising and they show off your shape while you’re working out. You’ll also need to ditch your old trusty gym t-shirt for a couple cute sportswear tank tops.  Exercise tank tops come in both solid colors and patterns, so look around a find a few that you like. Finally invest in a supportive yet fashionable pair of sneakers, chose a neutral color so they match with any workout outfit you decide to wear.

If you are a fan of skirts then you’re in luck because sportswear skirts are becoming very popular at the gym. These skirts have shorts underneath so you won’t have to worry about any unwanted exposure while exercising.  Another fashionable and very functional workout wear item to look for are insulated shorts or pants. These pants look just like your average workout pants but they are insulated to make you sweat more, thus helping your burn more calories. How great is that!
