Lets face it, we all wear workout clothes because they’re comfortable, stylish, and cool. Nike CEO Mark Parker has said “leggings are the new denim” and I think his statement is 100% true. Nowadays you can go from a pilates workout to run errands and you look trendy, especially if you are fully decked out in some brands like Lululemon, Net-A Sporter, Trina Turk, Cynthia Rowley, Mara Hoffman, Stella McCartney x Adidas, and Miami based brand- Peony.
When I was pregnant I lived in the cotton Roll Up legging from Lululemon because it was high wasted and the fit was perfect. It didn’t pinch my huge tummy and I was able to breathe. The best thing about wearing my Lululemon gear is that I am able to go from a workout class to run errands to a lunch with friends and still feel stylish.
For me, since becoming a mother I actually find myself wearing athleisure on a daily basis. I often don’t have time to change during the day and thanks to stylish workout gear I can still feel and look fashionable. The key to shopping for the perfect athleisure pieces is to find items that compliment other items into your wardrobe. Nonexistent even two years ago, the concept of athleisure means that it is now acceptable to run around in workout gear all day long. For a fashonista like me, I still feel fashionable wearing this comfortable clothing.
After your workout- if you add accessories like a hat (fedora or baseball), a pair of Birkenstocks or Teekes, a denim or leather jacket, and a great bag you will look stylish and ready to take on the day.
If Chanel is selling tennis shoes then I think wearing workout clothes all day everyday is totally acceptable☺
