What To Wear To The Gym? Your Guide to Getting Started

So you’ve signed up, got your very first gym membership and you’re ready to head out the door to pump some iron and become and Instagram influencer within the week. There’s only one problem, you don’t have any gym kit.

The age-old question of what to wear to the gym can be a bit of a tricky one if you’ve not frequented one before. Everyone says that ‘no-one’s even looking at you anyway’ – but if you turn up in jeans and a polo shirt – then I’ve got some news for you, you will be the centre of attention and not in a good way.

So what should you wear to the gym if you’re just getting started?

His Guide To Gym Clothing

If you’re a guy and looking to get in shape – you’re going to want to focus on four or five main components to your gym clothing uk.

1. A GOOD PAIR OF JOGGERS

We’re starting off our recommendations with a good pair of joggers. Not only good for the gym but perfect for lounging around in and rocking with a casual tee when there’s no need to dress up. We’re saying that you should stick to the darker colours if you want to avoid suspicious outlines and you’ll be able to use them with way more outfits too.

2. PERFORMANCE T-SHIRTS

Ever worked out in a regular t-shirt and realised just how sweaty you get? Performance t-shirts stop that by allowing a bit of breathable material, so you’re not constantly absolutely soaked through for the whole workout – which is handy. A selection of performance t-shirts (3-4) is perfect to get you started, so you’ve always got something to rock on your upper half while the others in the wash.

3. SOFT TOUCH PULLOVER

If you’re working out in joggers, the chances are that you’re gonna want something else to go on your upper half – for when you’re cold – bless. There’s nothing better than a pullover hoodie to get your gym street cred up through the roof. Extra points if you keep it on during heavy cardio sessions and make yourself into ‘that guy’.

4. STRINGER VEST

Get super hot when you’re working out – or just want to show off your shoulders and arms in the gym? There’s nothing better than a stringer to invest in. With a light material, you’ll no longer have that sweaty t-shirt feeling, in its place you’ll see freedom and mobility with style and practicality. Wear to the gym or around the home but make sure you exude confidence. Self-conscious in a stringer is a no-go.

5. A VERSATILE PAIR OF SHORTS

Last but not least we’ve got shorts on our list. Now don’t go and invest in what is basically a man-thong – but instead a basketball style short that’s versatile and inoffensive to the rest of the gym. These can be worn for leg days, cardio or just around the house on a lazy day. Perfect.

Her Guide To Gym Clothing

We’ve covered the guys – so now it’s time to cover the girls, and once again we’re trying to stick to five main essentials that you’ll need if you’re starting in the gym.

1. HIGH WAISTED LEGGINGS

High-waisted leggings are all the rage and with a range of different style and colours available – they can even be a reflection of your personality (lol so random 😍 ). For your first pair of workout leggings, we’d recommend grabbing a dark colour with versatility in mind. You can pair black with just about anything – but a Star Wars print is pretty one-dimensional.

2. A GOOD PAIR OF JOGGERS

As with the guys, a good pair of joggers will do you well and are an excellent substitute for those days you’re just not feeling yourself in a pair of leggings. Once again you can get high-waisted joggers – if that tickles your fancy – and loads of different fits too. We’re all about the cuffed fit and with a super comfy pair – you really can’t go wrong.

3. VESTS

Vests, vests, vests.  Whether it’s a crop top or racerback – you can’t go wrong and pair with a pair high-waisted leggings, you’ve got a look that’ll style you in the gym and even out of it too for the post-gym smoothie. Choose from vibrant colours to stand out, show your style and bring life to your outfit, especially if you invest in dark-coloured leggings.

4. PERFORMANCE JACKET

A performance jacket is the last on our list for our four must-haves for what to wear to the gym for her and for good reasons. Whether you’re out running, training in the cold or even just on the way to the gym – a good jacket can really set the tone of your outfit. Picking a good solid breathable jacket is all you need to make a statement – we can’t recommend enough!

5. THE SPORTS BRA

Gone are the days when a sports bra is a dull, drab way to strap down on your assets. Sports bra design has come on in leaps and bounds, and now you can find one in every style, shape for every impact, From soft support for yoga to the high-impact bra for intense cardio, this is an item of clothing that is worth spending on for your comfort and confidence.

First Baby

This Summer I’m going to become a Nan for the first time and I can’t wait. My oldest daughter Helena will be having her first baby around Mr. C’s birthday. Double celebration?  Who knows! Whatever though, I’m already on the case looking at all the adorable baby girl and baby boy clothes and scratching my head over the bamboo bowls on offer!

As a parenting writer, Mum of 3, Step-Mum to 2, Aunt and former Editor of TheBabyWebsite, I can’t help but notice the various differences and obvious similarities between having a first baby now and back in the late 80s and early 90s.

Obviously babies are babies whenever they’re born and the same fundamentals apply. They all need to be fed, changed, cuddled and loved and they need to be kept warm and safe. However so many of the little ‘rules’ and ‘recommendations’ have changed over the years.

With my babies, it was a question of how long should  I swaddle my baby. Mums-to-be today are wondering whether or not to buy a bamboo swaddle or some other kind of baby swaddle blanket!  We were told to bath our babies every day but now the new baby skincare advice suggests otherwise. Babies are weaned later now too, at around 6 months.  And the baby car seat rules seem to change every two years. All brilliant when it comes to a new baby’s welfare but the ever-changing rules are grist to the mill when it comes to a new mother’s worrying!  And oh do we Mums like to worry!

Is Baby too hot?  Too cold? Hungry?  Wet? Teething? Comfortable? Tired? Shall I buy organic baby clothes? Do I need to buy baby vests if I have a Summer baby? What’s the difference between baby sleepsuit and babygrows? If I don’t buy organic cotton baby clothes, will my baby get eczema?  We worry about everything you possibly can and then if we’re not worrying, we wonder if we should be!

Helena’s journey hasn’t been an easy one.She’s 26+ weeks pregnant now and fingers crossed all’s going well. However she lost her first baby and you can read about the whole horrendous experience over on Helena’s Blog. I went through multiple earlyish miscarriages myself and know how awful the whole thing is and so it’s been lovely seeing how happy she  is now. She’s been reading all manner of baby and pregnancy books and readily admits to being paranoid she’s going to do something wrong. But then that’s Mums and Mums-to-Be all over.

A mother’s instinct is pretty much spot on most of the time. Forget about the books and other people’s advice, just go with the flow! Inform yourself, by all means. But don’t stress over little things. Love your new baby and everything else will slot into place.

Dresses For Baby Girls

Find A Quick Way To Dresses For Baby Girls

When we are shopping for our day-to-day wear, jeans or even formal attire in boutiques or department stores, we are usually influenced by three factors: comfort, style and reasonable prices. Of course we want to be seen in clothes that are stylish and yet comfortable, and it is even better if we can get all this without paying a fortune.

Everyone likes to look good without having to completely drain their pockets. These factors are also taken into consideration when choosing Dresses for baby girls. We want our baby girls to be happy, stylish and comfortable this Christmas season, but we also want our wallets to still be in a healthy state after purchasing the perfect Dresses for baby girls for our baby.

dresses for baby girls

And why are we talking about dresses in the plural? Well, it is always wise to have a spare dress in case of emergency or mishap. You don’t want to buy a beautiful baby dress and then end up not having it feature in your Christmas album just because the chocolate cake decided to leave its mark on your baby’s pretty dress.

So what are the points that we’ve got to consider when choosing the perfect baby Dresses for baby girls in order to achieve comfort, style and affordability? Let’s first talk about comfort. In order for your baby girl to feel comfortable, we have to think about the fabric used in making the baby dress. Velvets always look very good and this is always a classic material, but if you live in a part of the world that is fairly warm at Christmas time, this might not be a wise material to choose. It will certainly look divine on your princess but she will most likely feel too warm in the dress and be wriggling around in discomfort. However if it is cold at Christmas in your part of the world a velvet designer baby dresses is perfect.

Another consideration about the dress is that it should also be not too tight or not too loose. Your baby must be able to move about comfortably while looking good. Also make sure that neither the fabric nor the lace is itchy – we don’t want to end up with rashes at Christmas, do we? The next thing to think about is the style of the dress. It is a must that the baby Dresses for baby girls is feminine and cute. Baby dresses with themes can look really great, such as a snowman inspired baby Dresses for baby girls or a Santa Claus and elves themed number. It is also worth bearing in mind your baby’s complexion and eye color when choosing a dress. We want a dress that will match her eyes and show them off beautifully. The color of the dress should also go well with her skin tone. Obviously the price of the dress will also be a consideration. Of course we want the best things in life for our little princesses, but we must bear in mind that the dresses we are buying today will most likely only be worn once or twice.

Our little baby will not be able to wear the baby girl dress again next year because by that time she will be definitely too big for them. So it is probably better to look at the ranges that are not so expensive when you are in the department store. You might even consider visiting a consignment store and you might be surprised to find one or two really good items for your baby. Believe me when I say that department stores and consignment stores are gold mines in terms of the lovely bargains that you can find.
