Being a couch potato isn’t all that bad but it’s now all about being low-key obsessed with healthy living and working out. It only takes a few too many cans of soda and a couple of pig-out sessions with all-meat burgers before we start to feel their unhealthy effects on the body. As for sweating it out, we can already recite from memory the plethora of excuses for skipping going to the gym: the traffic, pet errands, the need to sleep, the non-stop rain, etc.
Don’t get us wrong, all these reasons are valid (*wink*). So when work and socials get in the way of physical play, these outfit hacks will come handy in helping you check off “exercise” from your daily to-do list. No more excuses! Check these ensembles out; these might just get you out of the couch while still in style.
The return of the ‘90s continues to be strong in the fashion scene, so dig out those track pants that you’ve thrown into the back of the closet and wear them with your dry-fit athletic tops to your next gym sesh. Afterward, switch from workout-ready to social casual with ease by pairing them with a pop of color up top before heading to your next hangout with the fam.
Wish to sport a just-got-out-of-yoga aura? A cropped hoodie worn with a pair of high-waisted leggings can get you through an early morning walk with your dog. Accessorize with a visor, and confidently greet fellow dog lovers, “Namaste!” Did we also mention this can do double-duty for a perfect #doggosofinstagram and #ootd post?
Riding public transport can be the ultimate hassle, so minimize your stress with an outfit that feels comfortable yet also looks ready for a throwdown at any moment. A comfy vest can give you that post-boxing or MMA workout look, especially when accessorized with a pair of gloves; this getup might just deter pickpockets from targeting you.
