    Whether you’re doing yoga or HIIT, what you wear affects your confidence level, and subsequently, performance.

    A study at California State University found that when people suited up in business clothes, they felt more powerful and did better at big-picture thinking than their casually dressed peers. We think this applies in a fitness setting too: The more well dressed you are, the more pumped up and confident you’ll be. And that is one big step to nailing a tough workout.

    Go on, find yourself some trendy (and power-boosting) togs here.

    The latest eco-friendly activewear brand to hit the market, Outfyt carries sexy yet supportive pieces that are made with ethical manufacturing practices, using sustainably sourced materials such as abandoned fishing nets and fabric scraps. The result is a regenerated nylon fabric that provides a long-lasting fit and high resistance against heat, sunscreen and chlorinated water, so you can wear the pieces from dance to hot yoga to wakeboarding.

    We love that the Sage Leggings come with a specially designed gusset that eliminates the dreaded camel toe, and how they end just above the ankle to make you look leggier.

    If you love floral and dreamy prints, check out this homegrown label, which has a showroom at level 2, 364 Joo Chiat Road. The collections are inspired by Asian culture and oriental designs – think cherry blossoms and kebaya prints. The capris are made from silky smooth four-way stretch fabric with moisture-wicking properties to ensure you stay cool and dry. The antimicrobial finish prevents bacteria build-up, while the anti-piling texture means you won’t have to deal with ugly fuzz on the fabric after multiple washes.
