Feeling confident and empowered while working out is the best way to stay motivated. Having a negative mindset while getting exercise will only make it more difficult. So, how can we feel good about ourselves when trying to find the motivation to go for a morning run? By styling and accessorizing our wardrobe.

Sure, we are all sweaty and gross while we put in work, but maybe it is time to ditch those boring black leggings and try new prints and patterns. Instead of the low pony, try a fishtail or french braid, accessorized with a Nike hat. Remember that you are trying new things for yourself, and not for anybody else. 

Need some inspiration? These fashionable workout sets will point you in the right direction.

This stormy night pattern is unlike your typical pick. Neutral colors are easy to pair any running shoe with, and the longer length shorts are built for comfort. For an affordable price, FashionNova can give you this look, plus more!

The Woman in White

Mesh stripes are both breathable and fashionable in this new Animal Instincts set! This all-white attire gives a look that is clean and fresh, providing you the power you need to kick some booty.
