It’s more than easy to get trapped in the sweatpants-and-shirt routine when heading to the gym, especially in the dreary last days of winter, but this week’s Fashionista shows us that keeping it chic on the way to the treadmill can be as worry-free as it looks.
With a subtle hint at the baggy look that has made notable appearances on the runway since 2008, this week’s monochrome outfit is a mashup of expert layering and silhouette contrasts. To get the inverted triangle silhouette this week’s Fashionista is rocking, try a slouchy sweatshirt over a tank and figure-slimming yoga pants. Wear a V-neck sweatshirt and these Calvin Klein pants for options to recreate this look.
With the added bonus of sky-high sneakers, you can get the carefree athletic style while elongating your lines. The black wedge sneakers this week’s Fashionista is rocking are the perfect extension for her slim pants, but if you’re looking for something to break up the black, go for a brightly colored pair. The mint-toned pair from Marc by Marc Jacobs with geometric cutouts are sure to add a small dose of shock factor to your outfit. For even more color, try the pastel print wedge sneaker by NASTY GAL, which will wow with a Monet-meets-Dali style.
Working out doesn’t need to meet the dressing to impress standard to be successful, but this simple outfit will win you points at the water fountain for it’s casual chic feel, especially if you’ve got the sweat stains to prove it.
One Simple Change: Hitting the club scene post-workout and don’t have much time to get changed or extra space in your gym bag? Switch out those yoga pants for a sequin skirt. It’ll go perfect with your scrunched gym socks and slouchy sweater, while packing an unexpected punch. And with wedge sneakers, you’ll really dance the night away because they add the height without the pain of stilettos.
