Having finished my dissertation, I'm finally back to a proper workout schedule - and boy does it feel good. As a growing fashion addict, my eyes were caught by the sportswear worn by women: how on earth did I miss out on the fact that a workout happens in style these days? The sporty trend seems to take over, as sports tights are increasingly worn in day to day life and 'number tees' are found everywhere. I hence figured that it'd be time for some searching on the essentials - you can see the results below. 

1. The shoes

Shoes, perhaps most important? I won't talk about my love for Nike Dunk Sky High's for once (although they do fall into the sports category) - instead, I looked for what else is there in terms of workout shoes. New Balance is apparently doing a fine job lately, but somehow their shoes don't do it for me - rather I'd work these Nike Free 5.0 V4, available at & Other Stories here. What can I say, I'm a fan of the blue ..

But in all cases, make sure that the shoes fit your exercises - it probably can't be said enough how the wrong shoes can mess up your workout and your body.

2. The number tee

Cannot be missed in one's basic/ workout wardrobe anymore, simple as that. Works well with basically all 'simple' items in your closet (think (skinny) jeans, shorts, skirts, etc). I came across this grey one from Twintip, and gotta admit I'd love to put it down and send it straight into my closet - but for those of you not looking for grey; they are available in multiple other colors as well, as for example this blue one right here

3. The shorts

Because summer has finally hit us and the tights are just too much to handle - especially during a workout. Again, a wide choice of lenghts and patrons and colors is available, but as most workouts require some interesting body positions (see the Nike Training Club app if you don't know what I'm talking about), you might wanna think twice about those shorts that reveal 50% of your behind. My current favourite is this one from Adidas by Stelly McCartney - love the colors! Available here.

4. The tights

They come in all colors and patrons one can think of - the fun never ends! My favourite is this one from Nike, the Nike Pro Tattoo Tech, available in the Nike shop here. It can be combined with a wide variety of (oversized) tops as the colors are quite subtile (in contrast to the print..) - I'd definitely go for a combo with white or olive green! And yes, I caught myself thinking that I would wear this one on a night out as well .. what do you think? 

5. The top

This is where my personal taste probably differentiates from the more common opinion. Despite the fact that I can appreciate the amazing stylish workout tops by for example Adidas (Stella McCartney!), basketballwear always has an advantage with me as it is extremely comfortable. During workouts I still like to wear basketball jerseys, as they don't carry sleeves and allow you to move freely. I hence picked this white Nike jersey from the men's basketball collection - and even though it carries the 'men' label, I'd say it fits quite well with those Nike's or that Stella McCartney shorts.
