Styling Tips and Must-Have Clothes for Athletic or Muscular Women

When it comes to finding the perfect clothes for athletic women, it's essential to strike a balance between comfort, style, and accentuating their strong physique. At Aurea, we are passionate about helping you show off your hard work while still retaining comfort, class and sophistication.

Tip 1: Good fit is essential.

The best clothes for athletic women are simply those that fit well. Clothes that are too tight risk making you look trashy while clothes that are too loose will make you look like the Hulk. Tailored clothing like blazers, pant-suits and pencil skirts are, of course, ideal, but surely it’s not practical to get an entire wardrobe tailor-made. One option is to buy and then alter some items, and another is to buy items with some degree of stretch. Our Swan Pants are knitted dress pants that were designed with this purpose in mind. They are a snug fit at the waist and hugs your hips perfectly.

Tip 2: Highlight your best features

Athletic frames can vary. While some women might have a stronger butt and legs that they’re very proud of, others might have amazing shoulders that they would like to show off. If you have well-defined arms and back muscles, opt for tops with spaghetti straps or one-shouldered tops like our Alice top. High-waisted bottoms are a must to complement your small waist and built glutes. Our versatile Alice skirt was designed to do this, making it very appropriate to transition from meetings to drinks.

Tip 3: Choose simple accessories

When selecting accessories, keep it simple to let your physique shine. Avoid chunky or oversized accessories that might overpower your strong frame. Instead, opt for delicate jewellery such as dainty necklaces, stud earrings, or stackable rings to add a touch of femininity without detracting from your overall look. A classic watch or a sleek belt are also good embellishments. Remember, less is often more when it comes to accessorising.

Here are our top picks for essential wardrobe items:

1. A well-tailored suit: Invest in a quality and timeless suit. A well-tailored suit exudes confidence and professionalism, making it perfect for business meetings, formal occasions, or even as separates for a stylish, casual look.

2. A little black dress: No wardrobe is complete without a little black dress, and this holds true for muscular women as well. Look for dresses that hug your curves in all the right places, enhancing your physique. But steer clear of anything that is too tight or too revealing. A little black dress is, after all, a classic item that you would want for more formal occasions. Consider styles with interesting details like cutouts, strategic draping, or an asymmetrical hemline for added visual interest.

3. Dress pants: A well-fitted pair of dress pants is a must-have for athletic and muscular women. Look for styles with stretch or those designed specifically for athletic builds, as they provide comfort and accommodate your muscular legs and hips. Opt for high-waisted options that flatter your waistline. Dress pants offer versatility, making them suitable for both formal and semi-formal occasions, ensuring you always look effortlessly chic and confident.

We understand how hard it can be to find the right clothes that not only fit, but actually enhance, your athletic frame. That is why we came up with Aurea. Embrace your strength, be proud of your body, and let your fashion choices empower you to conquer the world with style and grace.
