Gym Clothes to All Day Style

This week on #CommunityClosetChallenge I chatted with Tatiana, a 20-something corrective exercise specialist from NYC about how to rock her gym look as an all day outfit. With a few simple wardrobe additions you too can wear your sweaty yoga pants from the gym to errands to lunch and beyond. Athleisure chic is not only a trend, it is a way of life!

 

“HOW DO I RESTYLE MY WORK CLOTHES FOR CASUAL LIFE?”

Think outside the box! We are so quick to categorize things in our closets. This top is for work. These pants are for vacation. Why? When you open your mind and stop pigeon-holing items you realize your wardrobe has a LOT of potential. Take a step back, look at your “work clothing” and think about where you are currently going. Would it fit into your “new lifestyle”? How can you restyle it? Play around, you just might put together something fabulous.

WHAT IS THE PERFECT LAYERING PIECE FOR GYM TO REAL LIFE?”

A waist length light-weight bomber jacket . Yup, it’s as simple as that. This piece will take any gym look to real life in an instant. Your sweaty post-work out look becomes a chic and sporty outfit. Have you always dreamed or wearing your yoga pants all day without the world wondering why you never got dressed? Throw on a bomber jacket and no one will ever wonder again. The dream is real.

“CAN I WEAR THIS GYM OUTFIT AS AN ALL DAY LOOK?”

Hell yes. I mean, you aren’t going to a fancy function in it, but it certainly works for errands or lunch with friends. By pairing your gym outfit with a fun pullover and cool sneakers, you are instantly upgrading your workout wear. Lucky for you, athleisure is a trend now so being ever so sassy in your comfy gym outfit is an actual thing. If you are going to spend $100 on yoga pants shouldn’t you actually be able to wear them outside the gym, don’t you think???
