We’ve made our New Year’s resolutions. We know that spring is just around the corner, meaning mini skirts and tanning on the quad. Therefore, I anticipate a very busy gym at school. Although when dressing for the gym you need to be practical and comfortable so you can power it out on the elliptical, this does not mean you need to shy away from style.
This Fashionista knows how to work it out and sweat in style. Stores like lululemon are great for finding flattering shapes with the most adorable patterns and color schemes. If the expensive price tags are making you stress sweat instead of endurance sweat, check out the selection at Target. They have an expansive activewear section with very attractive prices. I especially love buying sports bras there because they have a huge array of colors, like neons and prints.
For those of you who are trying to save your money for spring break, there are a few simple changes you can make to your current workout wardrobe. Crewneck T-shirts are a basic for the gym and we all have about a million of them. When choosing from your own personal selection, make sure you are wearing a shirt that is your size instead of one that you could swim inside of because it is so huge. Save those for bedtime and instead opt for one that is more fitted. Create a flattering neckline by cutting a “V” in the center to instantly transform a shirt from a harsh, constricting crewneck to a feminine V-neck. Also, adding a pair of earring studs and a cute hair tie to your ensemble converts your look from gym clothes to a workout outfit.
One Simple Change: If you are going from the gym to a coffee date with your girlfriends, simply add an adorable sweater over your T-shirt. Top that with a puffy winter vest and a scarf and you’ll be all ready to sip chai lattes and gossip!
