Q. With leggings and skinny jeans in fashion, does that mean leggings and skinny tapered sweats are the “in” thing to wear to the gym? Are flared sweat pants out? Are leggings and huge t-shirts “in” for the gym, like they were in the 80s?
A. Please skip the huge t-shirts. It wasn’t flattering then and it certainly isn’t “in” now. Stick to what flatters your body most when you hit the gym. You want to be motivated, not disappointed. Wear tops that give you the right support when you’re moving, jumping, etc. and pants that have a bit of Lycra. Consider sticking with boot cut style which are usually flattering on most body types. Remember, just because it’s a trend, doesn’t mean it’s right for every body.
