5 Workout Wardrobe Essentials You Need in 2020

Improving physical health and fitness is always a popular new year’s resolution.

Sure, we hear what you’re saying: it’s difficult to find the motivation to work out in these cold, wintry temperatures.

But what if we could help you lose the pounds and feel fabulous through 2020 and beyond?

Okay, so we might struggle with the former but we can definitely help you with the latter.

Spoiler alert: the secret lies in owning the following 5 workout wardrobe essentials that are functional yet fashionable. 

And if you buy them second-hand from Re-Fashion? You get to donate to charity while being kinder to the environment. Win-win.

1. The Comfy Leggings

Firstly, you’re going to struggle to get going if you’re not wearing some of the comfiest leggings known to mankind.

Are yours made of cotton, polyester, nylon, spandex or a beautiful spandex-nylon blend? Good news - you’re totally doing it right. Soft and stretchy fabrics are the holy grail of workout wardrobe-essentials.

You might want to invest in a plain pair in a hue that will match practically any colour palette, like these Forever 21 Blue Sports Leggings.

Alternatively, you might want to opt for something with a stylish print or trim, such as these Pretty Little Thing Contrast Sports Leggings.

Either way, nail your leggings first and foremost and the rest of your workout outfit will naturally fall into place.

2. The Breathable Vest

A bougie yet breathable vest is another handy addition in any modern woman’s workout wardrobe, especially if it corresponds with your leggings.

Want to brighten up an otherwise dull January morning? Instantly boost your mood and motivation levels with a colourful workout top. 

And if it also has a pretty print, like this Marc Cain Floral Sports Vest, you can earn extra style points.

3. The Sports Bra

Don’t forget to put on a sports bra before you start doing exercise.

After all, a good sports bra in a moisture-wicking fabric will make sure your chest is comfortable and sweat-free during prolonged activity.

Sure, it’s got to fit and do its job well, but it also helps if it looks cute at the same time - right?

That’s why we love this SPORTFX Leaf Print Sports Bra. It’s the epitome of a win-win.

4. The Snugly Sweatshirt

Is it a feeling a bit nippy out? Not to worry - you can grab a snugly sweatshirt that will keep you feeling cosy before and after your workout.

We’re crushing on the kind with a slogan that you can use to add a touch of sass to your activewear. 

For a versatile neutral version, check out this H&M Detailed Jumper. On the other hand, you might prefer to rock this Louise Gray Cropped Jumper when the weather starts to get warmer. Swoon.

5. The Throw-On Zip-Up

Finally, if a sweatshirt feels like too much hard work, consider having a zip-up jacket as one of your key workout wardrobe essentials that you can just throw-on in a hurry.

For instance, this Boohoo Crop Hooded Sports Jacket has a stripe trim that nods to a traditional American baseball jacket. 

This will put the cool factor on the rest of your outfit to help you look and feel your best during your workout.

Workout Wardrobe Essentials: The Finishing Touch

Whether you wear one of these workout wardrobe essentials every time you exercise or a combination, let’s not forget the finishing touch: comfy trainers that won’t rub your feet.

Then (and only then) will you be truly ready to boss your workout. 

Here’s to a happy and healthy 2020!
