How to Choose the Most Stylish Gym Bags
Gym bags are essential accessories for men both in terms of practicality and as a way of revealing your style on your way to a gym session. Gym wear doesn’t stop with trainers, shorts and a t-shirt as what you take your kit to the gym in is just as important as what you wear for your work out. Shoving your kit into an old rucksack or battered gym bag is all very well but if you want to exude style then you have to make sure you invest in the latest looks in gym bags so you always look your best at the gym.
The casual clobber and relaxed looks of the late 70s and early 80s is back so expect lots of contrasting colours, retro shapes and plenty of attention to detail. Large gym bags and formal gym bags are also at the fore front of gym fashion.
Below we take a look at the key trends in gym bags so you can be prepared to work out in style.
Oversized gym bags
No matter how good a gym bag looks, if it’s too small you are not going to fit everything you need into it. As well as loads of space, oversized gym bags also have the advantage of proving to your fellow gym goers that you are committed to exercise and are serious about building muscle. Oversized gym bags can also double up as weekend bags so are a superb investment if you travel a lot.
80s influenced gym bags
It seems the 1980s will always have an influence on the fashion of today so you might as well embrace it and try out what are pretty cool gym bags. Just like the other fashion of the 1980s, gym bags should be loud and proud in colour and feature handles which are contrasting in colour to the main body of the bag. Large labels are also a key current trend so look for gym bags with enduring labels such as Dunlop, Lacoste, Nike and UCLA in prominent position on the side of the bag.
Formal gym bags
Formal, briefcase style gym bags make your transition from early morning work outs to the office far easier as you can carry everything you need for the day ahead. Look out for styles which have extra attention to detail on the inside which will make showering, changing and organising your bag far easier such as plenty of compartments and pockets to store all your gym and office gear. The outside of the bag should be masculine and sharp to show everyone at the gym that you take your work out as seriously as your career. Muted shades of black, charcoal grey and brown will work best to complement your work place attire.
High performance gym bags will ensure that you look as good as you feel every time you hit the gym and are a practical way to carry everything you need for a good work out.
