There are no excuses for you not to hit the gym, even with your busy work schedule. We know just how you can get away with wearing your gym clothes to the office, so you don’t have to worry about fitting the gym into your professional life. Here’s how to go from the gym to work without sacrificing your style.
Apparently, you’re more likely to be motivated to go to the gym, if you have cute workout clothes. Whether you’re lacking motivation or not, stocking on up some stylish leggings, sneakers or hoodies can’t hurt, especially if you’re planning on transitioning to your daily life or the office.
Luckily, athleisure is still a big trend and Louis Vuitton is still strutting it down the runway. Most casual work settings will accept stylish sports wear in the office. However, we can take your regular yoga outfit to the next style level and find pieces that transition between your barre class and boardroom meeting.
Celebrities such as, Karlie Kloss, really know how to leave the gym looking chic and ready for the next meeting. Stick to simple color palettes and upgrade your look with accessories like a luxe duffel bag, statement coat or try going all the way by wearing a matching workout set.
A classic black yoga pant will always do the trick, because it matches with every single thing. You can pair it with a black top and boots for a monochromatic look. It’s worth investing in high quality workout gear, especially leggings, because the last thing you want is to bend over and have your undies showing because you didn’t invest in a good opaque leggings.
A stylish sweatshirt is a post-gym must have and can be thrown over for a casual look. Again you might want to go to neutral colors and simple pattern for a sharper look or opt for a trendy one if you work in a more relaxed setting. You can even add a nice pair of jeans or a blazer for a more professional approach.
A polished sneaker can easily transition from a Pilates class to the conference room - and if you style them right, to after-work drinks too. Look for shoes in a neutral tone (white is the best) and now you’re comfortable and appropriate for the office. You’ve got hundreds of brands, shapes and fits to choose from, so you’re bound to find one that balances the gym and the office simultaneously.
If you’re really worried and just not comfortable wearing the full on sporty look, add a sophisticated outerwear piece, whether it be a classic coat or some kind of blazer. The more fun you have with your work out clothes, the more you will embrace it. When in doubt, stick with the classic black on black yoga look.
