How Fashion and Fitness Have Basically Become the Same Thing

Fashion determines more than just our look-it defines our lifestyle, fashion sense and how we appear to the world around us. Hence, with the passage of time it is to no surprise that the lines that differentiated between fashion and fitness have, steadily and gradually, become a blur.

A lot of people don’t notice it as much because the trend is so common now but if you observe the clothing of people around you, majority of them have their sportswear on even outside of their gym places.

Within our modern culture, fitness and fashion are two ideas that most people are now more likely considering as the same thing. A major reason for that is the fashion boom of Athleisure’- clothing meant for workout became a trend to be worn in settings outside of gym and more in places such as school, workplace or any casual and social events. For decades, fashion companies have dedicated to developing large amounts of spandex into clothes that would fit within your normal everyday attire.

Enclothed Cognition

Does it really matter what clothes we wear? Does our getup affect our mentality? Does fashion sense go beyond more than just what we want people to see? The answer to that has actually been proven to be a big yes. Enclothed Cognition is an expression that explains how our clothing affects and reflects our psychological processes. Most people aren’t aware of the major role your attire plays in influencing your mood and lifestyle. Put on a pair of gym clothes and it is most likely that you will start feeling some confidence backing up your self-esteem. Hence, we can determine that, just from putting on a specific set of clothing, you will be inclined to feel whatever it is that your clothes are reflecting.

You are what you wear

Basically, ‘You are what you wear’ is the perfect statement to define this phenomenon. You are far more likely to feel the difference in the type of clothing you wear- for example, wear a doctor’s coat and you feel more responsible and similarly, wearing sports clothing makes you feel fit. Furthermore, there are high chances where you even feel inclined to turn the feelings you get from your getup into a reality- put on your workout clothes that make you feel confident and fit and in turn you will notice that you really feel like working out and staying fit at that point.

What we wear affects how we feel. Dressing up automatically turns you into the character that determines what role you must play in that getup. And not only that-people who look at you in a specific attire also determine the type of person you are according to what you wear. Notice that when you see a person in sportswear, chances are that you think that they are active and have gotten their lifestyle together despite not knowing what the actuality of their personality is.

Desiring to feel confident and fit 24/7, people end up wearing active wear more often thus converging the concept of fashion and fitness as one.
