Show off sexy calves and your toned back and shoulders with cropped leggings and a snug racer-back top. Pair a brightly colored or striped top with black leggings for a sleek, modern gym look . This workout outfit is great for a yoga class or for an hour of intense cardio kickboxing.

Pull your hair up in the back and keep any loose strands out of your face while doing the downward dog with a pretty fabric headband . Finish your look with a fitted jacket, ankle socks, and a pair of sneakers and you are ready to look stylish going to and from the gym.

Sweats can look sexy! For a casual chic gym style , put on a pair of comfortable sweat pants. Layer a sexy tank or sports bra with a shoulder-baring sweatshirt. Pull off your overshirt and roll up your pants when you start to break a sweat on the elliptical machine or while lifting free weights. Throw some facial cleansing pads (to keep up your skin care routine!) and a bottle of water in an oversized bag, put on a pair of sunglasses, and head out for your workout in style.

Whether running on a treadmill or outdoors, why not look your best? Women’s athletic apparel is made to help you look great and to support your workout . Slip on a pair of short running shorts made with breathable, lightweight material to show off sexy legs and for a comfortable run, or wear a running skirt for a more feminine look. Layer a cotton tank with a waist-length hoodie in the spring; wear a sports bra in the summer. Match a long-sleeve top with a running vest and a pair of black leggings in the fall and winter.

Don’t forget to complete your gym style with great hair . Add a dab of thickening cream to wet hair before styling to add body and to prevent that flat gym hair look . Pin back your bangs if you have them and then tie back your hair into a ponytail, a bun, or a quick braid for a convenient and attractive finish. If only your actual workout were as easy as looking gorgeous at the gym!
