Women’s activewear features numerous opportunities to create a unique outfit that reflects your style and personality. Most women get some reward, however big or small, from knowing that they look good. This does not stop at the edge of the sports field, the tennis court or the swimming pool. In fact, in competition of any kind the consolation of a cool logo or a neat cuff can be a powerful thing — especially in the face of defeat or even just if you’ve been playing below your game.
Some would even prefer to lose but maintain their looks, rather than win and end up beet faced, sweat stained and unattractive! And this not just for the benefit of other people watching — it can be just for yourself, too. For centuries, women and men have believed in the importance of looking good at all times and in all situations.
Don’t Miss Out On The Chance to Accessorize
In sport nowadays, the opportunities for you to add accessories to your sports apparel is limitless. Whether it’s colored golf balls to match your mood or your outfit, tennis socks that have different color stripes or running shoes with a unique pattern, there is no excuse for looking dull or just like everyone else.
This is a wonderful thing at Christmas, when the opportunity to purchase small gifts or stocking stuffers with a sporting theme is so popular. For example:
different balls, tees and clothing items for golf
all sorts of ski garments designed to draw the eye as well as keep out the sunburn or cold, from sunglasses and professional goggles to mittens and scarves
affordable, brightly colored athletics tanks and wrist bands, stop watches to record your time and sports bags to contain all the paraphernalia you need to take to the gym or the indoor track.
It’s also possible quite easily to obtain items that can be personalized with a name, logo or even a sporting sentiment. As well as the familiar t-shirts, baseball caps, jackets, wrist bands and golf balls can carry words to inspire or console the wearer. These words also identify the property to their owner, making it harder to lose your favorite items in public places.
It is generally recommended to have a selection of your favorite sporting accessories and these can be varied to suit the season, the mood or the success of the owner. While a golf ball that says ‘winner’ may not guarantee an improved handicap, it will certainly bring a smile to the face as the owner tees off. And if victory is the result, the ball can either become a lucky talisman or at the very least a great memento of a good game. Some of these accessories have even become treasured family heirlooms and have been passed down from generation to generation.
Without accessories, sport would be a much duller process with everyone looking the same. While it may be the performance that distinguishes the true athlete, attention will also inevitably be paid to how they look, what they wear and what accessories they flourish. In sport, as in life, it is almost impossible to separate function from form and many would argue we are all the better for that.
