With summer (otherwise known as bikini season) in full swing, people are finally realizing that they haven’t kept up with their New Year’s resolutions. While some people love to keep up with their workouts, most of us would rather clean our room five times than head to the gym. On the days that we manage to drag ourselves out of bed and onto the elliptical, our outfits tend to reflect how we feel: old T-shirt from our elementary school’s annual field day, old pair of gym shorts to complement the shirt and the first pair of running shoes we can find. While that’s an undeniably easy and comfortable outfit, we’re not likely to feel our best and most motivated in less-than-our-best clothes. That’s why when I spotted this Fashionista, I knew she was the perfect example of a girl who somehow looks put together at 7:00 a.m., even though her ensemble can be recreated with only three simple pieces.
Decked out in a colorblocked neon theme, this Fashionista shows that you can still look good even while working up a sweat. She decided to pair her neon yellow sports bra with a cool blue racer-back tank from Nike, balancing out the two contrasting colors. A classic cut, her straight-fit workout top is flattering on every body type (and will show off those great arms and back after a intense workout)! Along with her simple tank top, she sticks to a classic lululemon capri legging to remain modest yet comfortable during her workout, and the black color helps to offset the neon as well. Both her top and leggings are made with dry-fit materials that are meant to push sweat away from the body, keeping her cool during the workout. To finish out the look, she ties in the neon of her adorable sports bra with brightly colored, lightweight Nike gym shoes. This Fashionista is not only going to get a productive workout in, but will look amazing and feel cooled off during and after it!
One Simple Change: Still have a million other things to do even though you’ve just finished a hard workout? Grab a towel to wipe your face, apply some more deodorant and perfume and throw on a cute, athletic hoodie and cross-body bag for a comfortable outfit to run errands in.
