‘Hot Girl’ summer earlier meant working towards a certain type of body. But thanks to the changing narrative of beauty, today, it’s all about becoming a stronger, better and healthier version of oneself.

If you’re on a path of self-improvisation, working towards bettering your physical health is a part of it. There is no common goalpost when it comes to a ‘fit’ body. Healthy looks different on different body types. Keeping that in mind, your only competition is your older self.

Focus on building strength, stamina and skill. Indulge in activities that don’t feel like a chore. Working out doesn’t necessarily mean being confined to an iron bar. Learn a new sport, or pick up a physical activity that sparks joy.

Today, the fitness industry is all about approaching health with a holistic wellness approach. While emphasising your physical health, you’re also benefiting your mental health. Ever wondered why a good workout puts you in a good mood? That’s because when you work out, your body releases chemicals such as dopamine and endorphins in your brain that make you feel happy.

But to align your mindset and kick off lethargy on a daily basis, you need a pre-workout incentive that boosts the feel-good vibe. The answer is simple: put on a cute workout fit and half the battle is won.

Gone are the days of oversized gym attires and mismatched workout ensembles. Your workout closet is now slowly transitioning into your loungewear because it is so easy to relax in it, plus who doesn’t like looking chic at all times? We thought as much.

If you’re looking to build a capsule wardrobe for your workouts to approach the ‘Hot Girl’ summer, we’ve picked the best option for you already. From tennis skirts and playsuits to jersey shorts and skorts — we’ve got it all and more.


All above mentioned products can be shopped from Net-A-porter
