When it comes to Zumba, my little reminder is DON’T underestimate it!
That said, make sure you bring a big water bottle for the first class!
Featuring Latin American dancing styles and upbeat music, Zumba is the addictive wild high-energy party that can make you want to join every single week.
At first, you may just want to go casual with a basic white tee and leggings look.
But sooner or later, you just can’t help but want to glam up the look with Zumba-ready outfits and that’s like falling down the rabbit hole.
Don’t be guilty girl, we’ve all been there! In the article, I’ve combined 10 Zumba outfits from casual to festive style if you wonder what to wear to Zumba class.
No worries, I’m pretty sure they are as comfy as it looks aesthetic.
1. SUPPORTIVE SPORTS BRA & LEGGINGS FOR ZUMBA CLASS
As Zumba dance in general involved high-impact movements like intense jumping and bouncing, you will always need a supportive sports bra and flexible leggings to stay comfy.
If you just getting your feet wet in the Zumba department, I’ll always suggest you wear your existing gym set first before going crazy with all the fancy Zumba wear.
But if few lessons down the road and you really feel like Zumba is your thing (as most of us do), you are ready to rock all the outfits below!
2. WEAR TANK TOPS TO SPICE UP THE LOOK
If you want extra coverage on top of your sports bra, throw on a flowy tank top is always the winning option.
Instead of choosing a plain one, I will always go for the tops that feature interesting designs.
If you ask me to choose between a spaghetti strap backless top and the heart shape crochet top, I will take both as I just love how they allow me to show a peek of my colorful sports bra.
But wait a minute ladies! That doesn’t mean you can ditch your plain tank tops now, do a cute front knot with it and they are good to go!
For the girls who want to get ready for Zumba with minimal effort, go for the tank top with a built-in sports bra!
If you want an affordable choice, this is the high-quality one from Amazon
Yup, they existed. According to my mum, it’s a life-changer.
3. GO FOR COMFY CARGO PANTS FOR ZUMBA
Another Zumba “must-have” is, you guessed it, the classic cargo pants that make you feel cozy and easy for all kinds of moves.
Featuring the elastic waistband and drawstring design, they are just perfect for the fierce Latin dances.
The charm of cargo pants is it just goes well with everything. Whether you pair it with a coordinated top or sports bra, it just looks effortlessly in style.
Finish off the outfit with a cropped windbreaker jacket and a high ponytail, this is how you upgrade this activewear look into the high street ensemble.
4. STAY CHIC IN BIKER SHORTS
Biker shorts are all the rage these days and you can definitely incorporate them into your Zumba attire for a modern mix.
While black biker shorts is forgiving, I’ll urge you to level up your game with the all-over neon one as it just screams “The hype is real!”.
Teaming it with a simple graphic tee together and bright pink biker shorts as a statement piece, it’s just an instant mood booster!
5. TIE THE SHIRT AROUND THE WAIST
If you want to get a taste of hip-hop vibes, tie your flannel shirt around the waist can never go wrong.
To finish off the look, throw on a baseball cap just looks full of attitude.
Not only is this perfect for a cool girl photoshoot, but the shirt can actually help accentuate the dance movement when dancing along.
As a long torso girl, I LOVE this Zumba combo and it visually elongates my legs.
6. GO FOR A STYLISH BOLERO HOODIE ZUMBA LOOK
Fashion comes and goes but the bolero hoodie is here to stay.
With its one-of-a-kind design, it’s such a chic layering piece for the Zumba Dance.
And you know what, the bolero hoodie can draw attention to the chest area and make you look bustier visually. (Not gonna lie, this is why I bought one)
To look put together in a bolero hoodie, make sure your sports bra features a big V-neck design so you can show a stripe of skin out.
Together with slouchy windbreaker pants, this is how you look like a cool baddie in the Zumba class.
Be mentally prepared as this outfit is sure to turn heads.
7. ADD A DASH OF SPICINESS WITH SEQUIN ZUMBA ENSEMBLE
I get it, sequin outfits may not for everyone.
But for the teenage girls out there, perhaps it’s time to try out an eye-catching glitter top to freshen up the look.
If you are having a Zumba group dance with your girls, go for a pink gold bomber jacket just looks impeccable as a team.
If you want to go subtle, a black sequin joggers looks ravishingly cool as well!
8. GO FOR FLOWY TOPS FOR PLUS SIZE LADIES
Is that just me but I do feel frustrated when I search Zumba outfits on Pinterest and all the pins are featuring those toned fitness girls.
I mean, where are the clothes that cater to the chubby girls?
When I get extra on a few pounds with my food baby, I do want to stay comfy with a relaxed cut top.
If you think a round-neck tee is way too boring, go for a refreshing white shawl top to keep you nice, flowy, and sophisticated. A cold shoulder tee is a lovely choice too!
9. ALWAYS WEAR BRIGHT HUE SHOES
To look fun and flirty with Zumba dance, a pair of bright hue shoes are the no-brainier to give the look a tint of sassiness.
If you are worrying putting few bright tones as a set will look tacky.
I will suggest you wear black leggings to balance out the boldness.
As for the top and shoes, echo them with a similar hue just make you look united in figure and thus, appear to be taller visually.
So ladies, bright hues can definitely be flattering if you know how to mix and match! It take times to match and match but don’t ever give up!
10. EXPERIMENT WITH ALL KINDS OF HAIRSTYLES
What to know what is missing from your final Zumba look? A new hairstyle!
Just admit it, we are just too comfy (lazy) by lying all our hair down 24/7.
If you are the type of girl who loves Zumba parties, your hair should deserve more attention!
So let’s try out all the fun hairstyles that you’ve been inspired to do for a long.
Whether that’s a pigtail, french braids or simply tie your hair with neon elastic bands, a little difference just freshen up your mood!
But as a reminder, don’t do an updo.
I know that’s fancy but from my personal experience, that can really hurt your head and look really clumsy when you dance along.
But still, I know that depends on people so you can test it out yourself!
So ladies, here are the 10 Zumba outfit ideas if you wonder what to wear to Zumba class.
I hope you will find these tips useful. To me, Zumba is too fun that I even forget it’s a high-intensity workout!
