Personal Style 101: From Barre to Brunch


Admittedly, I’m not much of a brunch-er but I’ve definitely had to run straight from a workout out into the world. It’s important to look more than halfway decent when wearing your workout clothing in public.

I’ve got a few tips to help you do it …

Start Cute. Finish Cute

My personal motto is to always dress your best. Yes, always. You never know whom you’ll meet or whom you’ll run into. Whether I am grocery shopping or at Pilates – I dress in a way the represents me in the best light. So wear something cute (from head to toe) for goodness sake! Speaking of toes … can we talk about my Boost 2.0 shoes? These are my new best friend – comfortable and the black not only goes with everything it hides the dirt from my Cali hikes.

Bring Along Some Layers

If you are working out in a stylish top and leggings, bring along an extra layer for an added element of style. A fashion-forward (but still sporty) hoodie or track jacket will do the trick. I am obsessed with this floral track jacket from adidas – it’s a twist on an original.

Accessorize But Don’t Overdo It

Listen, you just got finished working out so no need to overdo it. Simply take your existing workout clothes and add a few simple accessories. A leather baseball cap, a hip pair of shades, a couple of bracelets … the point is we aren’t trying to pretend that you didn’t work up a sweat, we are just trying infuse a little extra style so you don’t stick out like a (sweaty) sore thumb.

Wear a Decent Bra

If you know you are going out after your workout, wear a decent bra. I’m not talking La Perla, I am talking a great sports bra that will give you the best shape and support. Adidas has different support levels for their bras ranging from light support to maximum support. The maximum support Energy Cup size bra even comes in cup sizes, so you know you will be getting the best fit possible. I can’t live without my Techfit bra, it’s comfortable and offers me the right amount of support.
