Cute Activewear Pieces You Could Totally Wear On a Date
Adidas by Stella McCartney Blue Essential Sweatpants
Good news: Activewear is completely acceptable date attire. Online dating site and app Zoosk surveyed over 7,000 of their members and found out that wearing workout clothes on a date is the opposite of a faux pas: 69 percent of people said that they found workout clothes attractive and that they wouldn't judge a potential mate for wearing them on a date. Men especially like the athleisure trend, with 75 percent saying it was fine to wear activewear on a date, compared to 59 percent of women.
As far as specific items people were into, yoga pants won big. After that came anything spandex, tank tops, running shorts, sweatpants, basketball shorts (yup), and muscle tanks.
Long story short, these super-cute sweatpants paired with a striped tee and denim jacket are just as good as that bodycon dress in the back of your closet, so pick whatever you're more comfortable in. Our bet's on activewear. ($90; stellamccartney.com)
