Whether you like to pretend your workout was a music video or just like to add a bit of accessory fashion to your daily workout routine, there is no doubt that you could always use a little stylish boost.
Athleisure fashion has taken the world by storm as it combines comfort with chic, making it a great fit for everyday wear and for your workout session. Stylish athleisure workout gear can give you that boost of confidence you need during your exercising routine. But what about jewelry then? Can you combine your athleisure gear with jewelry? Let’s learn more today.
Can You Wear Jewelry When Working Out?
The answer is yes, you can wear jewelry and accessories during workouts. When paired with your athleisure fit, jewelry can actually be a great way to add a touch of style and spice up your outfit. However it is important for you to choose the right jewelry and right materials. This means no extravagant accessories like fancy dangle earrings, or else they may get in the way or can be too heavy.
When you exercise, it will leave you sweaty and this could cause your jewelry to tarnish easily. Therefore, it is important to choose jewelry that is comfortable, hypoallergenic and sweat-proof. Some of the best options for your workout jewelry include stainless steel, sterling silver and solid gold. These quality jewelry materials can help you avoid any rusting, skin discomfort and skin discoloration.
What Jewelry Can You Wear?
● Dainty Stud Earrings
Earrings are jewelry pieces that almost everyone loves to wear all the time. When it comes to working out, it is better to avoid dangling earrings or large hoop earrings as these types of earrings tend to get in the way when you are exercising. Therefore, you should choose stud earrings as your gym ear jewelry as they are generally smaller in size and lightweight.
● Lightweight Necklaces
If you want to wear necklaces as part of your athleisure fashion, you can choose lightweight pendant necklaces and chain necklaces that are ideally 12-14 inches.
You can still wear longer necklaces if you’d like, but be extra careful with your necklaces as they may potentially get in the way of your face or arms when you use gym equipment.
For pendant necklaces, you should go for a lightweight pendant with a simple yet durable design. Avoid wearing pendant necklaces with sharp edges as it could accidentally injure you. The heavier your necklace pendant is, there is a higher chance of it getting swayed with each movement you do.
● Simple Silver Bracelets
When it comes to finding fashionable bracelets with your athleisure gear, it is safer to go for lightweight chain bracelets or bracelets with simple designs. Avoid wearing chunky bracelets with complex designs or charm bracelets as they could get stuck in the equipment and cause injuries.
If you’re looking to wear fashion bracelets while working out, it is better to stick with dainty sterling chain bracelets like our U Link Bracelet Mix Double Chain Bracelet Silver. This silver bracelet features a charming combination of dainty silver chains and chunky u link chains.
● Avoid Wearing Rings
While you may want to show off your fashion rings when you hit the gym, they can be an unsafe jewelry choice to wear when you're exercising, especially if you plan to workout with equipment with metallic rods. It is not a good idea to wear fashion rings when working with weights, as it could lead to potential injuries that could affect your fingers.
To conclude, while you can wear jewelry to your workout sessions, you should keep the accessories to a minimum. Avoid wearing fashion jewelry with sharp edges and opt for lightweight jewelry pieces such as silver chain necklaces and simple stud earrings.
