Referring to sports fashion, people will inevitably think of concepts such as Sportswear/Activewear – costumes that are only intended for sports activities.
Not only that, sports clothing today is welcomed by the public in many different aspects of life, be it street style, casual fashion, or travel sets… because it is easy to wear, comfortable. But let’s also explore the historical milestones of sports fashion so far.
1. The 1930s
During the 1930s, though interested in physical activities, most people rarely went to the gym (except athletes). The selected clothes are often based on the criteria of suitability and dynamism, the familiar items of this period are sort satin pants, white cotton shoes, or leather shoes.
2. The 1940s
If you want to “show up” in the gym, dress like the men of the 1940s, dressed up in a tight-fitting suit. However, you will need more flexibility than you think to be able to complete a full workout in this outfit.
3. The 1950s
By the 1950s, sportswear was still very popular. But now, because the practice activities of men and women have been different, most of the outfits will be made separately. But sort satin pants and a pair of Chuck Taylor All-Stars high-collars are a must for men.
4. The Mid-1950s
By the late 1950s, machines like this had become popular in gyms to cater to people from all walks of life. Then the design of sports fashion (activewear) for women is also more interesting.
We can see that the interference between satin pajamas and gym clothes in this set, both suitable for training and enhancing the beauty of the practitioner, is a characteristic of the sportswear. this paragraph.
5. The Late 1950s
In the late 1950s, with the appearances of Charles Atlas and Steve Reeves on the covers of magazines and screens, the beauty associated with muscles began to become more prevalent. Most gyms are in tune with the trend, and strengthening the machines and developing men’s fitness exercises is key.
6. The 1960s
In the early 1960s, the idea of gyms that cater to everyone, with a variety of needs, began to take shape (the gym was no longer a place for bodybuilders, boxers or athletes).
In all genders, all ages enjoy more than building together exercise habits over a long time. So sports fashion was also expanded to more target groups than in the previous period.
