Minimalist SportsWear Capsule
The items in your minimalist sportswear capsule wardrobe should be all about comfort and ease of movement. You want to be stylish in the gym, bicycling, playing tennis or any type of sport that may be your passion. Even if you don’t yet have a sports passion, you want to look like you do.
The minimalist sportswear capsule wardrobe makes it easy for you to hit the gym and afterward, sit with a friend in a café and enjoy an espresso. I love to run and I’m either running the indoor track in the gym or outdoors when weather permits.
I found that when you’re a beginner to working out or engaging in a sport, it’s even more important to feel like you look good in what you’re wearing rather than putting on any old pair of shorts and a wrinkled shirt.
Today, there are all types and textures of clothing for the minimalist sportswear capsule wardrobe that can make you feel good, look the part and make you want to work out rather than dreading the exercise.
Here’s an example of a serviceable minimalist sportswear capsule wardrobe:
The right outfit for your workout or sports activity can be inspiring and motivating. The fit is also paramount in your quest to get a good workout. I also love yoga, and have different outfits for that activity than I do when I run. The support is different and should be focused where I need it most.
Again, quality of your sportswear can’t be stressed enough. The pieces should be durable and won’t wear out when it’s laundered over and over again. You might pay a bit extra in the beginning for the durability, but it will be worth it in the long run.
I purchase everything for comfort and style, but comfort must be stressed for exercise and sports activities. Some sportswear today is made for quick drying when you sweat and even support various areas of the body. For example, the leggings I wear are sweat-wicking and muscle-compressing. They’re great for any workout.
While we’re talking about leggings, take a look at these leggings – a bright red that sets off all the basic and neutral colors of your minimalist sportswear capsule wardrobe and can’t help but cheer you up on dreary exercise days:
It’s okay to add bright swathes of color to your wardrobe, and this color will go with most neutral tops you might have. Pair the leggings with a running bra that is labeled high-intensity and you’ll be set for a fun and comfortable run.
Minimalists tend to also be environmentalists – and there are brands of workout clothes that can help. Clothing companies such as Live the Process manufactures workout clothing in an ethical manner that reduces the environmental impact to the earth.
These companies use recycled packaging and a carbon-neutral style of shipping, so you’ll feel good about the purchase. You’ll also feel good in the workout clothing items that are manufactured with quality and fit in mind.
