Refreshing your fitness wardrobe is a fabulous way to begin the year.
So here we are in a new year, with an opportunity to use the phrase “new year, new you.” It’s no great surprise that most of us see a new year as a time to start fresh with the changes we want to make.
Historically, the most common New Year commitment we tend to make is to improve our physical health by eating better and working out more. We know that healthier living and self-care routines ultimately make us happier and help to improve our confidence. As a result, we enthusiastically resolve to take on a new healthcare regime—while crossing our fingers that we stick to it past February!
Do what it takes to find motivation!
If you are like me, you are more inclined to work out if you have something cute and fun to wear. We all feel more confident when we like what we have on and how we look. That is always a winner! And as we tend to live in our workout clothes these days, the adorable and sporty pieces I’ve shopped for this post will also be great for much of our casual daily dressing.
One more thing to note is that I have included some cozy cashmere in with the more sporty pieces. It is winter, after all, and sporty dressing aside, cashmere is always a wonderful option. I mean, who doesn’t love the luxurious, cozy, soft feel of cashmere as you cruise through your day? It’s seriously yummy.
You will note that I have tapped a rarely used source for Be Iconic Style. I’m talking about—hold onto your hats—Amazon! Now don’t judge; what we’ve found is seriously adorable!
Having said that, let’s go for it.
TOPS & TEES
The tops and/or t-shirts we wear are essential to the completion of your look. I have found some truly adorable, simple, and functional tees and tops that are good year-round, layered, or worn on their own. You will love the sweatshirts and hoodies you see, which will definitely pop your look! They can also often serve as a third piece, so keep that in mind as you check out these treasures.
JACKETS & CARDIGANS
Regarding the ever-necessary “third piece” (as a fashion statement or necessity), jackets and cardigans are essential for both comfort and finishing your look. These yummy jackets and cardigans fall into both categories. I particularly love that some of them can be worn in the mountains for après ski and in the city with jeans or your workout bottoms.
You will love the versatility of what you see, and the chic is perfect!
While some pieces I’ve shopped are actually intended for workouts, most of them serve a dual purpose in that you can live in them as well. They look great with your jeans and as layering pieces.
The bottoms I’ve found that range from joggers (the ultimate comfort pant for life) to crop leggings to bootcut yoga pants—some with pockets! On a side note, how many times have you been desperate for a pocket in your leggings and yoga pants?? If you haven’t already, I think you will absolutely fall in love with this concept.
This very fun section includes a variety of treasures, from boots to onesies, leg warmers, and more. I’ve found some fabulous finds that will add an edge to and pop your look, whether you’re in town or the mountains.
The duffle bag is just plain handy, the crossbody bag small and useful, and the swimsuit a timeless acquisition.
SUMMING IT ALL UP…
How fabulous is having a fitness wardrobe that inspires us to work out because we look so good wearing it? What’s better is that we also know that much of that same wardrobe will serve double duty as we will incorporate these chic pieces into our day-to-day dressing. Many of us have been doing this for years. So, while you may be in the market for new fitness wear, you may also simply be in the market for a few new adorable daily looks.
The pieces I’ve shopped are extremely versatile, which makes them practical for everyday use. Each will be a hit for sure and help with easy dressing. And for a workout? Perfect!
Happy hunting! Here’s to a glorious fresh start to the new year and the success of your “new you!”
