If you've found yourself caught in the activewear whirlwind, you're far from alone. In recent months, Instagram has been teeming with one vibrant, spandex-y, monochromatic look after the next, all of which look cozy-chic enough to jump right into — but not so fast. Right now, experts in the field will tell you one thing: The activewear market is over saturated. While the temptation to tap the latest on-trend set can be overwhelming, there are a few things to consider when buying activewear that you'll want to take into account. This way, you'll get the very most from your investment, ensuring that the set you opt for is tailor-made for you and all the things you'll want to do in them.
"I think we can all agree that as much as we love fashion, when it comes to activewear, we need our bras to be supportive and our pants to stay up," shares Lindsey Carter.
The same is true for Ann Tann"You might like the look of an outfit, but if it's not supporting you during your workouts, then you might need to reconsider. You want to make sure you are able to focus on your workout and not have to constantly be readjusting or fussing about your outfit."
With summer just around the corner, it's important to take texture and breathability into account. For designers, creating the right fabric can take months, or even years, the STRAPPY BACK SPORTS BRA and TRAINING MESH LEGGINGS from WISKII Active will let you enjoy your summer activities.
Color is a crucial thing to consider, for more reasons than one — if there's a color that you find you tend to sweat in more, be sure to check the details section of the product description for sweat-wicking properties. Once that's out of the way, feel free to play with bold hues.
"A few years ago, a woman may have been feeling self-conscious and not want to wear a pink legging because she feared her imperfections would show up more, or that they were asking for too much attention," shares Alejandra Hernandez. "Now, we are feeling more empowered to wear whatever we want." There's also a sort of snowball-effect that happens with color — wearing bright hues intrinsically makes you feel good. "If you feel good and supported in the product you wear, it will naturally radiate even more. We love to play with color blocking and color pops — all of which add to how you feel and look, which will ultimately impact your confidence."
Whenever making a $100-plus investment, it's important to consider the cost-per-wear, which is inherently lower for pieces that you can wear outside of workout class. WISKII is putting out pieces that seamlessly integrate with your greater wardrobe, WISKII PLEATED SKIRTS is a unique piece, because not only is the silhouette super flattering, but you can also do anything in it.
Don't let trends distract you from quality. Happy shopping!
