From The Studio To The Street: How To Style Your Fitness Fashion Beyond The Gym
Words cannot express how much in love I am with fitness fashion. We have come a long way from windbreakers, matchy matchy velour and Reebok classics (no disrespect Reebok…yall are fitness fashionistas for sure). So since I can’t help rocking my workout gear in the streets I had to share this styling piece with you. Get ready to take your fit gear from the studio to the street ladies!
Look #1: From Your Bike To The Boardroom (lululemon)
Riding your bike to work is RAD, but having to lug a professional change of clothes on your two wheeler is not so RAD – which is why you are gonna love this look from lululemon. The Here To There Pant is the perfect fusion of professional and comfortable. Tailored to the T and adorable with either sneakers (such as the Glyde Lite Engineered Mesh Women’s Sneakers from Puma) or with heels. And, the Peplum Tank is totally a must have this spring. It is flattering on just about any body type and the criss cross back is not only fierce but functional – hello support. Top things off with the breathable New School Jacket and you are ready to pedal your way to the office si. Oh, and don’t forget your helmet girl – the Intersect helmet from Bell makes safety look so classy. You are gonna love the matte finish and how comfortable this helmet feels on your pretty little head girls.
Okay, so now that you’ve made it to work, take your coral tote from Vince Camuto out of your bike basket and get ready to clock in. The Leila Tote has a removable lining, so get ready to kiss filthy makeup encrusted bag bottoms goodbye for good with this one. Just pop out as needed, wash, and get on with your business. Inside you’ll find another Vince Camuto goodie – the Carston pump. I love how edgy, sleek and comfortable this heel is, so hurry up and get a pair. Then for the color and fun – swap out your New School Jacket for this nude Skinny Tailored Blazer from Topshop. Appropriately named, this blazer is quite dazzling for such an affordable price ($96). And lastly, have fun with your accessories by drawing focus to your face with a bold statement necklace (also from Topshop).

Look #2: From The Bar To The Barre (Athleta)
When it comes to taking your fitness fashion from the studio to the street, Athleta totally gets it. I am so in love with barre classes right now and when I tendu in the evening it is tough to not stop by a happy hour with my girls on the way home. So when I discovered this look from Athleta I instantly felt the need to buy a round. The Aspire Ankle Pant is made of a Recycled Featherweight Stretch™ (Polyester/Spandex) material and the sleek, silky recycled Featherweight Stretch™ wicks, breathes and packs down small. But my favorite part is the sizing – unlike traditional workout pants, this capri comes in number sizes, which ensures the perfect fit. Pair this with the chevron light weight printed Illuminate Tank and show off your well sculpted arms with this RAD top.
Now on to happy hour! All you have to do to transform your barre look to the bar is top things off with the Betona Denim Jacket, a cute bag – like the BBelter from Steve Madden – this fanny pack can also double as a shoulder bag so win win here. And then for your shoes girls – you must rock the TDubai wedged heel form Steve Madden’s “The Blonde Salad” line. This peeped toe pair is such a head turner so definitely show up to happy hour in these.

Look #3: From Hot Yoga To A Hot Date (The Upside)
Catsuits are hard to pull of yall, but my FitGirls “down under” in Australia at The Upside have perfected the catsuit. The Ink Blue Dance Catsuit is beautifully designed. The strategic placement of the seams and the thick waistband make this get up incredibly flattering. I love the blue black combo, and the splash of orange is everything.
So when it came time to take my new favorite catsuit off the mat I was all excited to rock it with the Slim Curve Blazer in black from Topshop and the the Carston pump from Vince Camuto. I let my hair loose and threw on some silver jewelry and headed out to what I was sure was going to be a hot date.

Look #4: From Your Run To Running Errands
The only time I usually have to go on a long run (my favorite type of run) are the weekends. And this highly anticipated two day stretch is also the only time I usually have to run my errands too, so when I discovered the fashionable yet functional Heidi Klum for New Balance line I had to get my hands on it. Fierce meets fit in this girly yet gorgeous line. The HKNB 890V4 running shoes in black and mint are such a fresh way to clock miles, and the HKNB Hottie Bra is hands down my favorite running bra to date. Not only is it pretty, but the thick band below your chest makes for one supportive sports bra. Speaking of supportive, the HKNB Perfect Pant is such a keeper. I appreciate how the thick and slightly scalloped waistband held my stomach in during my run, and the mesh lining in the back allows for some incredible breathability. Oh and the metallic detail around the ankles totally ups the cute factor even more. However the real show stopper was the HKNB Run Jacket in the mint green floral print. Even though I warmed up pretty fast during my last run I didn’t want to take it off. However if I had it wouldn’t have been a pain to carry. This jacket is super lightweight and the back is almost completely mesh. Hello more breathability.
So now off to run my errands. All I did was top things off with one of H&M’s super affordable basic and lightweight jersey tanks, I traded my running shoes for the more casual mesh sneaker from Puma again, and girly-ed things up even more with the Sydney Top Zip Chain Crossbody in mint from Fossil.

Look #5: From Your Workout To Rock Out
Bring on the outdoor summer concerts. The moment I came across Fox’s new body wear collection Hello! I was like “hello…I am so wearing this during my workout AND the next time I rock out. This affordable collection has definitely added some edge to my fitness fashion selection. I love how the Fox Hello! Capri in black instantly jazzed up my “all black leggings always” fetish. The mesh cut out not only allowed from some RAD ventilation during burpees, it also surprisingly sexy-ed up my sculpted thighs. And since I am truly trying to break away from black I totally appreciated the Fox Hello! Bralet in Atomic Punch. It comes in so many colors girls and because it is a little bit longer than a traditional sports bra it is perfect for all yall “bare all newbies.”
Then, when it came time to pump my fists in the clouds all I did was layer things up with some distressed denim pieces from H&M. Cut off shorts and a cut off vest help rock things up and this basic neon hoodie (also from H&M) totally sealed my rockstar deal. Threw on some RAD jewelry, my favorite ecletic sunglasses from VonZipper (the Spaceglaze Collection), my mesh Pumas once more and I am all set for an outdoor concert.
