Unless you’ve been living under a digital rock, you have already seen the #justdoit video with Nike and Deepika Padukone. The tribe of fitness junkies is hearteningly on the rise. To celebrate the rising consciousness of women’s participation in sports and fitness, we put together our picks of stylish fitness gear for women. From quirky tank tops to ultra-comfy yoga tights, our style guide for active-wear doesn’t compromise fashion for function. Nobody said you couldn’t sweat it out in style.
A daily session for an avid yogi consists of ample stretching and meditation. Avoid old tights that have stretched to the point of transparency; invest in quality ankle-length yoga pants and a formfitting tank-top for ease of movement. Add a pair of non-slip socks to complete your gear.

Get. Set. Run!
Morning runs can be daunting without the right pair of shoes. If a pair of groovy trainers available in an array of styles doesn’t boost your mood, we wonder what will! A sports bra with ample support is a must have. Layer with a cropped sweatshirt, tank top, or T-shirts with motivating quotes. They’re all rage this season! Pick leggings or joggers in quirky and bold prints to jazz up the look.

Give your athleisure look edginess with colour blocked or striped leggings. Lend a cool twist to your neutral leggings with neon coloured tank tops that flatter your body type. A good sports bra infused with CoolMax (a polyester fabric that controls swear) makes your everyday Pilates and cardio sessions more stylish.

When heading out after a rigorous workout, cover up with an oversized jacket, a trendy tote, and a bandana or a baseball cap.
Despite the growing popularity of activewear, the dread of a sweaty workout leaves many a fashionista clad in sweatpants and slouchy T-shirts. A chic workout gear offers enough beginners’ motivation to keep you tied down to your New Year resolution of hitting the gym. Give it a few months and those chiselled muscles will keep you wooed to a full-fledged active lifestyle.
