GET THE LOOK: Celebrity-inspired athleisure

Working out is good, but wearing workout clothes when not in the gym can be a bit of a mixed bag. We suss out the celebs who make athleisure (the trending fashion trend of wearing workout clothes outside of the gym) look good, and those who really ought to ditch the sweatpants before venturing out.

Only this cool hunk can meld a man bun, a Hoverboard and cropped workout capris into a cohesive (and utterly sexy) look.

It might look a little tweeny, but Jean Danker proves that the classic pairing of cropped top and teensy cheerleader skirt can never go too far wrong.

Who needs sneakers when you’ve nailed the glamorous track jacket and shorts look? Jeanette opts for casual Castaner espadrille wedges instead to keep the look feminine yet sporty.

Celebrities who wore it well: Taemin & Minho

Maybe it is their lean, lanky bodies, edgy hair colours or even the Instagram-worthy brick wall behind them, but the SHINee group mates Taemin and Minho elevates the cool factor of these Puma tracksuits by a thousand-fold.

We would be worried about baring this much leg in a mozzie-ridden jungle, but all that skin is what makes this pairing of an oversized Adidas Originals top and snazzy Nike sneakers so covetable.

The K-Pop girl group performed their hit single Dumb Dumb at an NBA KCC All-Star match earlier this year, and the audience was presumably struck dumb by their sexy get-up of thigh-grazing sporty outfits and high socks in varying pastel shades.

MediaCorp artiste Carrie Wong may not look like the sportiest of women, but she sure does know how to work a pair of sneakers with running tights. Oh, and if you’re wondering, the chic kicks are from the Puma x Bape collection.

Ok, so this #gymfie proves that May Phua actually does work out in her workout get-up but even so, there’s no excuse for neon-green shorts. None whatsoever.

While we love how darn approachable Becks looks in her sports gear for the recent Mediacorp Celebrity Sports Day (all for a charitable cause, naturally), not even the usually stylish actress could pull off what looks like your basic Junior College PE kit.
