With the rise of the ‘health conscious generations’, more and more people are taking the opportunity to hit the gym. Whilst the main focus of hitting the gym is to work hard and gain results, here at Standout, we know how important it is to look and feel good whilst doing it. Putting in hard work whilst you’re working up a sweat in the gym can make it difficult to look your best. But, here at Standout, we’ve put together our favourite gym wear staples in a helpful style guide to ensure you always remain looking and feeling on top whilst you work out.
Wearing the right footwear in the gym is essential. Having a reliable pair of trainers that provide support for your feet at the gym is the first point you should consider when it comes to investing in gym sneakers. Here at Standout, our customers can find plenty of comfortable, agile sneakers that provide comfort and support for gym activities, as well as remaining stylish and 100% on-trend.
The New Balance Black 574 suede trainers have a cushioned collar and tongue with a comfy foam insole to provide maximum comfort whilst training in the gym. Complete with vivid yellow trim accents, these breathable New Balance trainers are a great addition to any gym kit.
Diadora’s latest Mosaic N9000 trainers prove that Diadora are still the reigning champions of footwear. The Mosaic N9000’s are made from bold contrasting colours, with vibrant accents and patterns guaranteed to make an impact whilst you train. Not only are they effortlessly stylish, the footwear is also designed with comfort in mind, as they feature a supportive sole built purposely for those tough cardio sessions at the gym. The latest sneaker addition from Diadora is one to grab whilst you can – as they currently feature in our Standout summer sale, saving customers a massive 29% off RRP.
Channel the timeless style of the ’90s with New Balance’s White X-90 Mesh Trainers. These 90s-influenced trainers feature innovative REVlite midsole support, that offers gym goers premium responsiveness and durability whilst training. The New Balance trainers are made from a durable mesh fabric, making these trainers lightweight and breathable – a great choice for the gym – but also an ideal addition to your summer wardrobe.
Get the guns out
What better way to show off your gym progress than with a crew neck muscle tank top? These stylish tank top additions from Calvin Klein offer gym-goers maximum manoeuvrability – so you’re free to comfortably train as you please. The Calvin Klein range of tank tops feature bold, block colourways in both black or navy – with contrasting logo details. Remain stylish in the gym whilst you train in the Calvin Klein tank tops, or simply add these tank tops to your summer wardrobe and pair with a pair of shorts, or long joggers to remain on trend.
Sik Silk head to toe
Sik Silk rarely fails to deliver when it comes to providing gym wear for the style-conscious and their latest head to toe black tracksuits with gold accents do not disappoint.

Keep it Ellesse
Ellesse remains on top of their reputation when it comes to sportswear and their latest collection is no exception. Ellesse’s dark green joggers and hoodie set is one that will turn heads in the gym. This lightweight set also comes in pink, blue and green, offering a variety of colour preferences to best reflect your personal style. No matter what colourway you opt for, a classic pair of white trainers and a white tee will have you looking on-point for your training sessions.
Monochrome is a timeless, staple look that will never grow out of style – especially at the gym. Black and white outfits are a safe bet that will keep you looking effortlessly stylish whilst working out. One of our favourite monochrome outfits here at Standout consists of some well known brands that hit a home run when it comes to sports gear. EA7, Tommy Hilfiger, Ellesse and Ed Hardy keeping you on-trend for every sporting occasion. These lightweight clothes are great for working out in allowing for your body to breathe when you’re killing it in the gym, teamed with an on-trend pair of chunky trainers for an effortless look.
Here at Standout, looking good and feeling good in the gym is one priority – but feeling stylish when heading back and forth to the gym is also important. That’s why we thought we’d include a few of our favourite lightweight jackets and zip-up hoodies, that will compliment your gym wear as you travel. Such as our black zip-up hoodie from Religion, that showcases their brand logo front and centre for a contrasting look. Team with matching Religion joggers to truly make an impact in the gym.
Another staple jacket that offers up a retro feel, is Nicce’s reflective, lightweight jacket. The iridescent jacket is an assortment of green and purple shades that will shift colour as you walk – guaranteed to make you stand out. The last recommendation from Standout, is a jacket suitable for gym-goers who prefer a more minimal approach to their athleisure wear. Ellesse, the king of sportswear, keep things simple with their black turtleneck jacket – featuring a yellow contrasting zip to add a small amount of detail.
From water bottles, towels, extra socks and headphones – whatever items you simply can’t leave for the gym without – be sure to keep your accessories secure in a stylish gym bag from Standout.
