Choosing Flattering Fitness Wear
When you wear clothes that work with your body instead of against it, you're already well on your way to finding a more flattering look. Flaunt what you love and downplay what you're working on!
When shopping for work-out clothes that flatter your body, use the same rules that you would for your everyday wear. Choose colors and patterns that are slimming and that work with your body, which will help you look more fashion-forward while you're hitting the gym.
What Colors Are Best For Workout Clothes?
- Black - Long known to be the most slimming of all colors, you really can't go wrong by getting an all-black work-out ensemble. You'll look stylish and slim, from head to toe.
- Bright colors - Use bright colors judiciously as they will draw attention to whatever part of your body they're on. If you're insecure about your butt, don't go with the bright orange yoga pants, for instance. At the same time, it's fun to inject some color into your workout wardrobe, such as a bright stripe down the leg of your shorts, or neon purple shoelaces in your running shoes.
- Light colors - White or pale colors should be avoided when choosing flattering work-out clothes, as they do nothing to hide figure flaws and may instead draw attention to any problem areas.
