Choose a workout top in a sweat-wicking fabric to avoid wearing a soggy shirt for the rest of the day. If you are going to a less sweaty activity like yoga, try a comfortable, loose sweatshirt or top that will look casually stylish all day long.
The easiest way to transition a workout top to the streets is to layer a cardigan, blazer, or jacket on top. You will instantly look fashionable and more professional in seconds!
Workout pants come in all kinds of crazy colors and patterns these days. Those are great for the gym, but may be a bit much to wear elsewhere. Stick to neutral colors and you will look much more put-together.
Try a pair of leggings that feature metallic or leather details. These look chic and can be worn everywhere from work to a night on the town. If leggings aren’t your style, go for a stylish pair of track pants. They are super trendy right now and are a great alternative to jeans. As comfortable as they are fashionable, you can wear your track pants right from the gym to a coffee date with a friend.
Shoes And Accessories
Orthopedic and corrective running shoes now come in tons of fun styles, so choose a colorful pair you are proud to wear while running errands. Now places like Footsteps Orthotics even offer Fit Flop shoes that are a sandal that actually provide support — perfect for an after-swim session. When paired with black workout staples like yoga pants and a tank top, brightly colored shoes make a real statement wherever you go!
Swapping out your sneakers for boots or flats, though, will transform your outfit with minimal effort. You can also add a statement necklace, a chic watch, or dangly earrings to take your look from “squats” to “shots.”
Busy girls on the go often don’t have time to change between the gym and the rest of their day. With the easy tips above, now you can take your workout clothes to the streets in just a few easy steps. Between choosing your workout gear wisely to dressing it up with layers and accessories, you will never have to pack a gym bag again!
