A millennial woman who was roasted over her workout clothes has revealed how to look hot and on-trend at the gym after crowdsourcing fashion advice from young people on TikTok.
‘Hot girls on TikTok, why do I look stupid at the gym? Don’t be nice to me. Don’t worry about my feelings. Give it to me straight because I know that I don’t look as hot at the gym as I could,’ she told viewers.
‘Also, I’m a millennial so we both know I need you to bully me into being hotter,’ she joked in the on-screen text.
Hannah Brown, an actor and writer based in Los Angeles, went viral after asking ‘hot girls on TikTok to weigh in on her workout clothes, explaining she wanted to look hot at the gym

Brown acknowledged that there was something off about her look, but admitted she wasn’t sure exactly what it was – questioning everything from her socks and shoes to her hairstyle.
The video has been viewed 7.7 million times and has received more than 20,000 comments since it was posted on November 7.
The next day, Brown returned with a follow-up video listing the most popular advice she had received, saying the hot girls ‘did not disappoint.’
‘They told me everything I need to know to be a well-dressed hot girl at the gym,’ she explained. ‘They told me things I would not even have considered, like how my leggings are too soft and how I need to burn this top immediately.’
Brown’s first note was to pull her socks over her leggings because it looks ‘stupid’ to wear them underneath.
The podcast host said she was also told to buy 7/8 leggings, which are 1/8 shorter than full-length leggings and hit right at the ankle. This will help you avoid having scrunched fabric underneath your socks.
‘The sock color has to match the sneaker color,’ she continued. ‘This is very important. White sneaker, white sock. Black sneaker, black sock.’
‘Black sneakers with a white sole are not it,’ she noted. ‘If you’re going to wear a black sneaker, you have to go black sneaker with a black sole. More people seem to be into white sneakers.’

Brown admitted there was some controversy over no-show socks. Some people recommended them, while others insisted they weren’t in style.
Many comments were about her black top, which she was told to ‘just burn.’
‘It’s so funny because I literally thought this was one of my most flattering, best workout tops, and golly gee I was wrong,’ she said
Brown was told that her breasts were too large for the top, and she needed a proper sports bra to support her chest.
She insisted that she appreciated the criticism because she understood what they were saying about it not being flattering. The style of the top was also an issue.
‘The V-neck is bad,’ she said. ‘It’s like the worst part of millennial fashion, apparently.’
Brown was advised to buy compression tops and longline sports bras that are longer than traditional sports bras. As for style, she was told scoop necks, square necks, and high-neck bras were all on trend.
To her surprise, she also got flack for her basic black leggings, which she admitted that she hadn’t even considered being an issue.

No stone was left unturned on her quest for gym hotness, and many people recommended sleek hair that was slicked back.
