Your Workout Wardrobe Starter Kit | Clozette


While we discourage buying fancy exercise equipment that you may not need as a beginner, we do think that you should shop for a good workout wardrobe. It's tempting to show up to your yoga or pilates class in just a shirt and tights but doing so will prevent you from properly executing poses. For example, you may feel uncomfortable doing that downward dog pose when your loose shirt is exposing your intimates. With that said, you don't need to do a sports clothing haul. Buying some basic pieces is all you need to get started. Ahead, the essentials that you should add to your shopping list.


Sports bra


Lorna Jane's Double Trouble Sports Bra in Ice Blue, SGD103.39/~USD77.84


A sports bra will always be an essential part of not just your workout wardrobe but also your personal clothing collection as a whole. When buying one, go for the more expensive ones because you'll want to invest in a quality sports bra. Look for those that offer high-impact support with breathable fabric. 


Fitted tank top


Uniqlo Women’s SPRZ NY AIRism Racer Back Bra Sleeveless Top, SGD29/~USD21.83


If you're not comfortable with wearing just a sports bra, a fitted tank top is your best option. It provides coverage and won't restrict movement while you're exercising. Find one that comes with breast support for comfort and ease. 


Functional leggings


Uniqlo Women’s SPRZ NY AIRism Leggings, SGD29.90/~USD22.51


Have fun with playful prints or stick to the basic blacks — any design will do — but when it comes to the structure, you have to choose functional leggings. By that, we mean those that are durable enough to withstand all those intense cardio and splits. The last thing you want is to rip your pants while you're in the middle of a routine. 


After-workout hoodie


Frame's Oversized Printed Cotton-jersey Hooded Top (net-a-porter.com), USD230 


After a workout, we're sure that you'd want a hot, nice shower. However, it may not always be comfortable to take one in the gym especially if the shower area tends to be crowded almost all the time. That's where a hoodie comes in handy, wipe off your sweat and wear a comfy hoodie, and you're all set to go home and take a shower in peace.




Quality fitness shoes


New Balance 574 Classic Pastel


To ensure that you'll do your best performance, invest in a pair of good shoes that are specially made for fitness activities. Getting quality shoes will also help prevent sports-related injuries by giving you good balance and control. Look for pieces that have heel support and offer flexibility. When you're in the store, advise the personnel about what sport you're doing so they can suggest the best pair for you.

A girl boss is someone who takes charge of her life no matter the situation or circumstance. She’s confident and attention-grabbing. She is always ready for what life brings her because she is resilient… but also because she’s not afraid to plan ahead and count on things that help her achieve what she needs to — in style. Ahead, the handbag essentials of a girl boss.

A laptop that does it all




A girl boss is always on the go, and that means the hustling never stops. A handy laptop that can do it all is a must, and the HP Spectre x360 in special colour edition Pale Rose Gold is the perfect one to get. You’ll find it so sleek and so lightweight that you can easily slip into your handbag and take with you no matter your destination. It features the latest 8th Generation Intel Core processors and long battery life (up to 16 hours) to ensure that you get all your work done with ease.



The sleek design of the HP Spectre x360 Pale Rose Gold is also a perfect way to embody a girl boss’s outstanding features — elegant, versatile and attention-grabbing. Its special edition Pale Rose Gold colour captures this seamlessly, while its ability to be folded so it doubles up as a tablet matches your penchant for multitasking.




Don’t forget to complement it with the intuitive HP Active Pen, which you can use to easily navigate and jot down important notes and ideas.






It’s not just work you can do with the Spectre x360 Pale Rose Gold; it’s also incredible for play. With brilliant touch display of FHD resolution, you’ll find it enjoyable to watch your favourite series and movies on the Spectre x360. You’ll also find editing your vlogs and listening to your favourite songs a treat with its in-built Bang & Olufsen speakers.


As a girl boss, you work on important matters and security is on top of your priority list. Guard those ideas and outputs with the help of top-notch safety features, including a fingerprint reader and HP TrueVision FHD IR Camera for logging in using facial recognition.






A pair of sleek sunglasses


With the many meetings and errands you have to run, you’ll find yourself out and about under the sun. Make sure that you protect your eyes — they are, after all, imperative not just for daily life but for looking ahead. A pair of sleek sunglasses would do just the trick.

A scented hair mist


A girl boss’s day can run quite long; sometimes, it even extends to the wee hours of the night. But a girl boss never looks or smells unfresh. A couple of spritzes and a little rustling is all you need to refresh your hair. Plus, the whiff of a refreshing scent can also give you a jolt of energy to push on for the rest of the day.



A chic name card holder


Each day is an opportunity for a girl boss to meet someone new to learn about and connect with. So having your name card ready is a good way to make sure the initial connection is sustained.

A red lipstick


Nothing says bold and powerful better than bold red lips. The colour commands attention, plus it also helps that a swipe of a rich colour on your lips can lift your mood instantly. So make sure you have a tube — or two — in your handbag at all times.
