Technically all fashion serves a purpose. If it were not for clothing we’d be walking around naked, and unless you’re living in a nudist colony, that probably won’t go over very well. However, there are newer types of fashion, and some old, that serve more of a purpose than just clothing you.
If you are interested in clothing that does more than just clothes you, here are some fashion items that actually serve a purpose, whether it’s for Better Health, less pain, or to keep track of how healthy you are being, these things can all do great things in your wardrobe.
In the past, compression clothing was mainly thought of as something fitness people wore for people that are suffering from obesity or weight gain. The fact is that gradient compression clothing can help out all sorts of people from pregnant mothers to people who work out a lot and are trying to avoid sprains, strains, and other pains.
Even if you simply work standing up all day, you may find benefits in using gradient compression socks, which can help your tired and sore feet not be so tired and sore.
The new popular type of wearable fashion out there are fitness wearables. From clip-on items to wearables that look like bracelets, you can find fitness gadgets that help track your steps, your heart rate, and so much more. You don’t just have to pick a plain color like blue or pink, they come in Swarovski Crystals as well.
Companies like Fitbit, have been working hard to make their fitness wearables look more fashionable so that you’ll want to wear them more often.
In the past life alert bracelets generally looked like something bulky that most people wouldn’t want to wear, but did because, well, it could mean their life. These days you can get nice silver, real silver, medical alert bracelets in different, fashionable styles, so that you can feel more confident wearing something that might save your life.
If you have a life-threatening allergy or something similar, like seizures, having a bracelet that lets people know about these issues could be the one thing that keeps you alive in case of an emergency.
Now and in the near future, you can get online and various strange ways, like through the Apple Watch, which is something that’s already here. You’ve probably seen things in the news about virtual glasses that you can wear anywhere, that you can get online with. These too are an interesting fashion statement, but less likely to be seen on the street.
Would you be willing to wear a pair of glasses that look like they’re far too big for your face just because you can get on the internet with them and they are in style? Some people would, because it’s all about functional fashion.
