WORK­OUT WEAR

As with the dig­i­tal world, the medium has be­come the mes­sage.

The Peak (Singapore) - - The Look Of Style 2018 -

Once upon a time, peo­ple worked out to look good in their out­side clothes. To­day, half the bat­tle – maybe more – is won if they look good while fl in­g­ing their ket­tle­bells about in the gym or dash­ing about do­ing shut­tle sprints. In fact, with well­ness be­ing the tril­lion- dol­lar in­dus­try it is, fit­ness gear th­ese days is of­ten stylish and com­fort­able enough to take its wearer be­yond the gym ( hope­fully not di­rectly af­ter a heavy sweat-in­duc­ing work­out). Here’s what to look for in multi-task­ing gym gear:

TECH­NI­CAL QUAL­I­TIES

If you’re ex­pect­ing to per­spire in an out­fit and then sit around in it for a while longer there­after, it should be made to com­bat the bou­quet that ac­com­pa­nies sweat. The Dry­sense mesh of the top on the model is de­signed to wick sweat, be quick-dry­ing, and in fit­ness-gear re­tailer Lu­l­ule­mon’s own words – “anti-stink”. Good to know.

STYLISH AC­CENTS

Now that gym clothes can also dou­ble as go­ing- out pieces, it’s time to round out form and func­tion with some fash­ion. Mix those se­ri­ous pieces with small flashy ac­cents (not too much, you are at the gym to ex­er­cise, af­ter all) – think the camo print on th­ese Nike Air Huarache Drift Pre­mium sneak­ers, for in­stance, or a right-now brand logo down the length of your work­out tights.
