Fitness and Fashion are having a moment together amongst the youth at the moment. Today, men are consciously making an effort to be fit while not compromising on their style quotient. Active or idle, everyone loves ‘’athleisure’’. So much so that fitness inspired clothes are among the hottest trends in the market right now.
Everyone wants to look their best even while working out. Some are there working out real hard in the gym, while some are just there to socialize. Whether you belong to the first category or the second, we recommend you a complete guide on what you should and what you shouldn’t be wearing in the gym to look stylish.
The most basic thing you can wear to the gym is a round neck fitted t-shirt. Please do not wear ill-fitted t-shirts as they look very shabby and unattractive. Wear t-shirts according to your fit which makes you look presentable and smart even in the gym. You can see for yourself how a fitted and ill-fitted t-shirt appears.
2. Track Pants
Invest in a good slim fit track pants (mind you, we did not say skin fit). The fit of the track pants should be such that it is comfortable for you to exercise and at the same time should not be too long or loose.
Shoes are one of the most essential accessories in the gym not only from fashion prospective but for fitness too. You cannot wear just any shoes to the gym. Buy a decent pair of running/training shoes which will help you look good and train well. A strict no from our side to all those sneakers, Jordan’s and fleet shoes.

For summers, you obviously want to wear shorts in the gym which look cool and keep you cool as well. So, shorts need to be knee length at least, need to be airy and not too tight either. Please never wear your boxers to the gym, let them stay at home. Also, wear skin fit shorts only while cycling and not in the gym. Capris or three quarters as you might call them should be thrown away; these were never in fashion.

5. Tank Top
Need to show off your athletic body while you work out or you want to wear the least in the gym? Tank tops are the thing for you to wear and look trendy. You can experiment wearing interesting/funny text on your tanks which maintain your style quotient. Generally, tank tops are meant to be loose fitting clothing but if you are not that bulky, you can wear fitted ones as well.
6. Gym Duffle Bag
Carry this good looking duffle bag if you have things to take to the gym. The bag looks trendy and is most appropriate for a place like gym. We recommend carrying slippers, deodorant and an extra t-shirt to change post your work out. This way you can avoid smelling bad after that exhausting gym session.
7. Phone Arm Band
Arm bands for phones look very cool in the gym and act as a protective gear for your phone. While working out or running, you do not have to worry about your phone falling out of your pocket. Plus, this piece of accessory steps up your style quotient too.
