Top 10 Healthiest Fashion Trends


Activewear is hot in the world of fashion. Sales of activewear and athletic shoes reached an astounding $36 billion in August of 2013, causing Fashionista magazine to declare that fitness is having a moment in fashion. It’s great that activewear is finding its way in to so many wardrobes, because that translates to outfits to workout in! Alongside activewear, some timeless fashion staples are beneficial to your health, which is why we’ve listed the top 10 healthiest fashion trends to improve your health.

  • Basketball shoes/trainers Basketball shoes have exploded in popularity and account for a major portion in the uptick of activewear sales. Endorsed by famous NBA players, sporting space-age designs, and in a rainbow of colors, basketball shoes are firmly entrenched in the fashion market. This is good because anyone wearing a pair of athletic trainers has proper arch support for their feet and can participate in a spontaneous game of ball.
  • Yoga Pants Like basketball shoes, this piece of workout clothing has found its way into couture fashion. Their benefits are similar: women wearing yoga pants can stop off at the gym or yoga studio after running errands without needing a wardrobe change. We promote any article of clothing that you can be active and fashionable in.
  • Wrist fitness trackers The time of the watch is over. Fitbit and other wearable activity trackers are appearing on wrists across the world. They are sold in a variety of colors and have a sleek, aesthetically-pleasing appearance, so they can be mixed and matched with outfits in the same way as a watch. Instead of keeping track of time, they track your steps, sleep, and heart rate so you can make sure you meet your exercise levels for the day.
  • Pullovers Fleeces Fleeces by outdoor clothing companies are a casual and stylish way to keep warm. They are also made with materials that wick off sweat and can be used in active outdoor activities in cooler weather.
  • Tank Tops Both men and women enjoy wearing shirts that show off their arms in the summer. These shirts help you cool down on hot days, but because they have your arms exposed they encourage you to keep them toned by hitting the weights at the gym or doing #PushUpsEverywhere. Just makes sure to apply sunscreen.
  • Clutches Small pocketbooks and wallets are a chic way to be gentle to your neck, spine, and shoulders, instead of lugging around that suitcase of a purse.
  • Choose Flats Over Pumps Skipping the stilettos is a great move for the health of your spinal cord and feet. Since most of your weight is being balanced unequally when you wear heels, it can cause some serious health problems. Try grabbing a pair of flats instead!
  • Sun Visors & Hats According to dermatologist Dr. Doris Day, for every extra inch on the brim of your hat or visor, the risk of skin cancer is lowered by 10%. This is because the protection shields your hair, eyes, and skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Of course you need to pair your headpiece with some oversized sunshades, and add sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher!
  • Loose Clothing Skip the risk of infections that are caused by clothing or undergarments that are too tight. If you switch to a wardrobe that has more cotton based, looser clothes than you will give your skin more ability to breathe and sweat. This is healthy because, restrictive clothing keeps moisture ad heat in, which is an ideal environment for a yeast infection.
  • Oversized Sunglasses Protecting harmful UV rays is essential to maintaining eye health. Sunglasses that have 100% UV protection filter both UVA and UVB rays, which are the most harmful. If you choose to rock oversized sunglasses, the extra coverage shields soft tissue around your eyes as well.
