In the midst of what feels like a never-ending cold spell, it can become nearly impossible to muster the desire to lace up your sneakers and hit the gym. But as all Fashionistas know, getting dressed and looking cute can be the ultimate motivator for any challenge, be it an hour-long exam or an hour-long cardio session. This Fashionista shows us exactly how to keep that fitness motivation alive by dressing to play the part while traveling to the gym from her off-campus apartment on one of the coldest days of the semester. Now that’s dedication.
She rocks Lululemon from head-to-toe— running leggings, top, hoodie and all. She chose a top with a bright pink base with striped accenting on the chest panel. The fun detailing and bold color choice create instant endorphins and are certain to help you still feel cute while you’re nice and sweaty. A brightly colored top with fun accenting exudes a friendly vibe to your fellow gym-goers, while also putting you in the excited mindset to manifest all of your energy in to your work out.
The fitted black hoodie that this Fashionista pairs over her tank top keeps her looking chic and flatters her figure, while also providing her with warmth and an extra layer so that she’s able to stay covered while traveling to and from the gym. The combination of the black on her hoodie with her black leggings, and a pop of pink separating the two through the tank top, creates a streamlined look. Instead of throwing on an oversized sweatshirt or nylon jacket, try a fitted long sleeve pullover or hoodie in a basic or neutral color. It will keep your silhouette looking especially fit, and you’ll be surprised at how flattering a tight fitting athletic top can be.
This Fashionista also decided to accessorize with a classic pair of Ray-Ban glasses and an infinity scarf, which allows her to keep her ensemble wearable for a post-gym coffee date or even for a quick catch-up with friends before she gets inside the gym. Completing your ensemble with a few accessories that are easy to put on and off ensures that from the second you enter the gym to when you leave it, you’ll be looking nothing less than put together.
One Simple Change: For a post-gym trip to the coffee shop or the dining hall, pull an oversized sweater on over your running leggings and switch out of your sneakers for a pair of moccasins, which are easy to pack in your gym bag and easy on your hard-worked feet.
