5 Ways To Look Stylish While Working Out

UK Luxury Fitness and Activewear BloggerLet's get one thing straight, I don't workout with my hair down.  It would take about ten minutes for it to look a hot mess and another ten for it to wrap around my neck on the treadmill.  But, it did get me thinking: having recently joined a new gym (and loving it), what can you do to stay looking stylish while working out?  I've put together a quick-fire list below to provide a little inspiration, though don't forget - what others think of you while exercising is irrelevant, it's all about you and your progress!  So, just consider the following five tips a way to help you recognise yourself as you catch your reflection mid-rep...

Experiment with hairstyles: classic high ponytail, low braided ponytail, messy bun (with extra pins), bubble ponytail, tight fishtail, low double ponytail etc. 

*

Everyone's favourite - investing in new activewear!  At the very least, it reduces how often you need to wash items, and has the added bonus of motivating you to train harder.  Keep an eye out for padded sports bras, patterned leggings, and cropped sports jumpers and/or mesh hooded tops to get you to-and-from the gym

*

Avoid makeup unless you fancy battling with a breakout.  However, there are other fresh-faced and natural-looking options.  Try covering your lips with vaseline or a lip stain before working out, or dabbing a subtle line of kohl in between your upper lashes to help your eyes pop, even after you've broken into a sweat.  Oh, and a quick brush of the ol' brows before leaving the house doesn't hurt!

*

Don't forget your nails.  We tend to think super-casual when it comes to working out, and so they can often be overlooked.  But it can help boost morale to see your nails are on point - especially as a large part of working out is about being in control, right?!     

*

Double-check your accessories.  By this, I'm talking about your gym bag, towel and sports bottle

  1. What a great post, girlie! I love those leggings, the bow ties are so cute! That said, I love wearing cute workout clothes, they really are a great way to encourage and motivate you when you're feeling confident in what you're wearing as you work to attain/maintain your fitness goals. I've never really thought of it, but having well kept nails really does help with boosting confidence, too. I never feel good when they're not done and when you look at your hands in gloves and see a pop of color while working out, it does feel quite good! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!

  3. Gabrielle you are serious body goals! I honestly think that when you feel beautiful, you work out harder! Cute hairstyles are such a great idea that I hadn't considered before. Stylish activewear, like your gorgeous getup, is a must too.

  4. I work out from home, so I don't even have a mirror to look into and only my kids watching me. But still I prefer to make a little effort, dress in cute active wear and, mist importantly, have my hair out of the way.

  12. Only you could make an work out outwear look so stylish and classic. To be honest, I don't really work out but I do find your tips extremely helpful (especially the ones with hair up, no makeup almost not at all if possible) and it is something that I would definitely do if I would work out. Thank you for the tips, beauty :)

  23. I put my hair up in a bun with my invisibobble while doing my yoga work out. I find the invisibobble holds up my hair well. You look really chic in this outfit, Gabrielle!

  37. A very interesting and handful post, dear!
    Really more people think that working out means shabby look, ma that's so wrong! More since nowadays there are a lot of options to look good even when you are broke in sweat! As you said!
    I usually wear ponytail for my daily running or boxer braids at the gym, but in any case no make up (except for spf cream and lipbalm), since I fear that could be bad for the skin...
    Love your work out attire Gabrielle, you look very chic! And those leggins are really super cute!

  44. I love buying new sportswear to help me stay motivated to workout and I recently treated myself to a new gym bag as well which helped. It just gets a bit expensive when I have to buy myself something new every time just to get me to go to the gym haha. x

  45. Your outfit is just too cute Gabrielle! Love the jacket and your leggings. I feel activewear is so important. If you look great, you'll feel great. They're making some cute ones nowadays. Excellent idea about a balm on your lips. Just enough color.

  48. I'm currently really craving some new workout wear (that motivates me to work out more than anything!) but I hadn't really thought about changing up my hairstyles while I workout, I usually just throw my hair up in some discheveled ponytail because I workout from home :p

  49. Having cute and stylish workout clothes and accessories always encourages me to exercise more! Also, I don't exercise with my long hair down either. But at the same time, I hate putting it up, because it only takes a few jumping jacks before my heavy hair falls out of its pony tail. Perhaps you have suggestions?!

    1. Hey Kim, I can totally relate! Try layering one bobble over another, which tends to do the trick. Another suggestion would be to wear your ponytail lower down on your head, or even pin the bobble into place using bobby pins. Hope that helps!

  50. You look so gorgeous in your workout gear Gabrielle and I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying your new Gym!

    As for workout gear I really need to invest in some gorgeous new workout outfits, as I do HIIT as you know using YouTube I haven't stepped foot in a gym before, so my workout gear tends to be a sports bra and workout underwear (not really gym attire hehe)

    Your Seafolly leggings are gorgeous, really think the bows create a feminine look to your overall workout outfit. You look beautiful and clearly working out in style and suits you perfectly!

    Sending love your way beauty!
