If you're anything like us, your workout gear is anything but chic. We tend to wear our not-so-hot clothing to get our sweat on. Running shorts, sweats, baggy T-shirts with our college Alma mater splashed across the front, have become the basics. For whatever reason, we don't shell out the extra bucks, but now, with gym gear getting revamped to resemble stylish street wear, thanks to labels like Stella McCartney for Adidas and Lululemon, we find ourselves wanting to trade in those ratty sweats and tent sized tees for a pair of slim, bum flattering yoga pants and a sexy sports bra. Why should exercising be any less fashionable than a day at work or a night on the town? We all know, the better we look, the better we feel, and the better we feel, the more time we might actually spend running and not walking on the treadmill....AND we'll look good while doing it. Here are a few of our favorite and fashionable workout pieces.
Stella McCartney for Adidas' Procera Ballerina Shoes are perfect post work out footwear. Modeled after the classic ballet flat, the sporty shoes made of nylon and mesh allow your feet to breathe while an added Agion anti-microbial treatment prevents bacteria from growing. Plus for the days you're not in the gym, pair em' with your favorite jeans for a comfy and chic look.
Lululemon Chasse Tights are made from Lululemon's signature fabric and boast moisture wicking so you're not left drenched in sweat. Their snug fit ruched waistband make them flattering on any figure. To top it off, the sewn in gusset allows for greater freedom of movement and keeps fabric from bunching in uncomfortable areas. (Ahem..good-bye Camel-toe!)
Body Rock Imani Bra is both savvy and supportive. Made from nylon, lycra and spandex the cheetah print bra is studded with Swarovski crystals around the neckline and comes equipped with a waterproof iPod pocket as well as additional pockets for credit cards, cash and keys.
Women's moisture wicking hoodies, by Old Navy are affordable and adorable! Soak up the sweat while shedding those extra calories in one of these brightly colored workout essentials.
