Every January the most popular resolution is to start working out and stay on a healthy path, but somehow, we end up losing the sight of our goal rather than the weight we wanted. We strongly believe in the mantra of “looking good, and feeling good” hence we have selected some of our favorite workout looks and activewear for you to help you stay on track and achieve your goals while looking fabulous. The cuter your gym clothes, the more motivation you’ll have at the gym!
THE BEST LEGGINGS
The search for the perfect pair of workout leggings can be daunting. You want to make sure you look for leggings that keep everything in, without digging in. Do a little dance, squat and a couple of jumps in the fitting room when you’re trying them on to make sure they’re the perfect fit.
Here are our fave leggings for working out:

YOUR PERFECT SPORTS BRA
When shopping for a sports bra remember that there are 3 main types: racerback, crisscross and tank top.
Racerback: Provide good support for medium- to high-impact activities, but they’re usually not adjustable so it’s important to find a correct size.
Crisscross: Provide good support for low-to medium-impact activities, and the straps are often adjustable so you can fine-tune your perfect fit.
Tank top: If you’re new to working out, this style is perfect for you as this strap is most similar to your everyday bra. Bras with tank top straps usually have a back clasp, which offers additional adjustment and support.
Regardless of the style you choose, keep in mind that wider straps provide more support than thin straps but thin straps are easier to conceal under your shirt.
