Staying Fit, Warm, and Active Tips for Women
Running is one the greatest ways to both lose weight and feel great. For most women, though, maintaining their fashion sense while out on a jog is important. They want to look good while feeling good. Here’s a list of tips provided by SweatVac Performace Wear that will help you assemble a trendy running wardrobe. 


Finding a pair of running shoes that fit right and are comfortable is one of the most important elements in any woman’s running kits. Instead of saving a few dollars shopping online, pay the in-store premium by visiting a specialty running shoes shop. These stores have great specialists on staff that will assist you in finding a pair of shoes that fit your running style, offer a cushiony ride, and fall within your budget.


The perfect running hat for the fashionable woman is one that has an adjustable (one size fits all) loop or snap back-strap, so the hat can easily be maneuvered around a ponytail or bun. Make sure, too, that the hat is made of high visibility fabric, and has hits of 3M scotchlite fabric that will reflect off of car headlights. Many companies manufacture hats that have trendy colors – neon pink, neon green, and bright yellow are the most popular.

Comfort Tanks

The key to a good comfort tank is in the fabric. specifically, find a tank that is made of a lightweight, loose-fitting fabric like polyester interspersed with heavy swatches of mesh and vent panels to keep moisture from soaking your shirt. Another necessity in a comfortable tank top is an internal bra that will keep things modest, encapsulated, and sweat-free during your run. Choose a tank with 3M reflective panels to give your outfit a sleeker, safer, and aggressive look.

Running Tees

Finding the perfect fashionable running tee is a lot like looking for the ideal tank top. Look for light, moisture-wicking fabrics, preferably made of polyester and mesh. Another important characteristic of a comfortable tee are flat seams, which will eliminate rubiing and chaffing. 

Many top-of-the-line tees on the market today have an internal loop system that allows you to tuck your headphone cords inside your shirt so that they do not get accidentally caught up in your jogging motion. Nearly every woman’s activewear brand also includes reflective strips on their shirts. Seek these out because they will give you a bit of safety with your style.

Running in the Winter

Depending on your region, finding trendy, comfortable, and warm clothes for wintertime running is imperative. Winter running, with its below freezing temperatures, brisk winds, and snow-covered running paths, is a completely different experience than running on a sun-soaked August afternoon.

Essential wintery clothing items for any trendy lady include a pair of skin-tight, moisture-wicking leggings that will keep you warm and the sweat level low at the same time. Find a pair that fits snugly and does not ride up your ankles or down your waist. If you can, purchase a pair that is made of thermal fabric. thermal fabric will give you some added warmth on those super-cold February mornings. 

You should also consider investing in a winter hat (or a pair of athletic earmuffs). Running in winter is all about maintaining a comfortable level of warmth, and you lose more heat from your head while exercising than any other part of your body. A hat that is properly insulated goes a long way in keeping you warm.
