Finding fashionable yet practical workout clothes is important for any fitness enthusiast. You might work out to keep your body in shape, but you also deserve to look your best the minute that you suit up. Aside from looking great, the right fitness outfits are sure to get you in the mood to work out and keep you motivated to hit the gym regularly.
Recently, fitness wear has become so popular that it carries over as casual wear. Given its ability to keep you comfortable, it is no surprise to see fitness clothing pop up in fashion blogs that report on what celebrities wear to run errands or attend crowded events such as outdoor music festivals. In addition to famous people wearing athletic fashions, a few have developed their own lines of fitness wear.
If you like to hit the gym, play sports or simply wear the latest casual fashions, then the newest fitness items will make a great addition to your wardrobe. Check out a few fitness fashion trends for 2017 that you won’t want to miss.
Comfortable and high-tech leggings
Leggings were popular in the 1980s and are back again for workouts and casual wear due to their comfort. For the latest trends in leggings, you should get your hands on eye-catching patterns and high-tech fabrics.
Mix printed leggings with abstract bright colors, neutral marbled effects or tropical patterns into your workout wardrobe for some fun. The best new leggings offer compression support, anti-odor shields and moisture-wicking properties, which means that they are both comfortable and flattering. Copper fit compression clothing made of copper- and zinc-encapsulated fabric comes in sizing options that range from small to 3XL.

This trend is carrying over into fitness apparel, especially leggings, and the effect can be very slimming. Of all the mid-to-high waistlines in trendy fashion items today, stretchy leggings may be the most comfortable way to show off your figure.
Leotards for flexibility
Leotards are now useful for more than just dance wear. They can be worn under leggings or sweatpants for a look that makes sense if you practice yoga or any workout that involves shifting your weight. Nothing is more satisfying than moving into a forward-bend yoga pose while wearing a leotard so that you don’t have to worry about your shirt falling over your face. For this reason, leotards and full-body unitards have gained popularity as fitness fashion trends.
Fitness crop tops go well with the current trend of mid- to high-waist pants. Fitted crop tops often include built-in support, which can be as secure as any sports bra while allowing you to sweat it out in comfort and style. Just make sure to check your gym’s dress code since some might have rules against showing your midriff.
