What to Wear

A good summer work out is all the rage right now. Who doesn’t love going to the gym, on a run or taking a dance class? Just because you’re working out doesn’t mean you can’t look stylish!

Work out clothes call for a bit of a different style, but you can always enhance them with your own flare. Stores like Nike, lululemon and lucy feature super trendy sportswear.

There are a few staples you need to have in your closet to create a good work out ensemble. First, you need a durable pair of running shoes for those days in the gym or going on a run. Next, you need yoga pants. You can do basically any and every kind of work out in yoga pants! Lastly, get a good sports bra. Nothing is worse than wearing the wrong bra when working out.

When finding the right work out ensemble it’s all about the detail. This Fashionista created a great dance practice look with her patterned yoga pants, a flannel around her waist for flare and a bright racerback tank. On her way to the dance class, this Fashionista was looking extra cute with her heart-shaped sunglasses and oversized Michael Kors bag. She sported some cute animal print dance paws with a pair of basic black flip flops for an easy dance/street transition.

I loved how simple pieces came together and made a comfortable yet fun work out outfit. The flannel on her waist made for a great dance prop as well as a flirty addition to her outfit. This Fashionista was sure to stand out in any dance number she preformed!

One Simple Change: I love this Fashionista’s tank top, but to make this outfit even better for an intense work out, throw on an oversized cropped T-shirt. This will allow more air flow and keep you a bit cooler throughout you exercises. Also, the oversized shirt will add a ’90s persona to your stylish gym clothes!
