Going to a new gym is almost like your first day of school. You are there to work, but you still want to look fab! That’s why I like to always feel confident in the outfits I wear to the gym. And let’s be real — I’m picky. My gym clothes must be comfortable, versatile, moisture-wicking, stylish and make a statement. It’s a tall order, I know. That’s one of the reason I love Betsey Johnson’s performance line — it checks off all my “gym musts” boxes. Let’s take a look at one of these fun looks.
There are so many cool fitness leggings and crops this season that it’s hard to choose which pairs I’ll be making room for in my athletic clothing drawer. I like to keep my colors neutral so I can mix and match with tops, so mostly black, gray and prints featuring these colors. These neutral floral leggings are a great choice with just the right amount of style and pop — and a slightly higher waist, which I love. I paired them with a fun black and metallic gold skull tee that perfectly contrasts yet compliments the floral leggings. I love to play with silver and gold, and this is a funky way to do that for the gym. For days with a chill, I like to toss on a simple vest, like this Calvin Klein Performance option. These vests are always a staple in my closet because you can toss them on over a light gym outfit, like the Betsey Johnson look here, or over a sweatshirt as a layering piece for hiking. So versatile, so comfy!
A good athletic shoe is a must for me, and I love this gray pair from New Balance. It’s a neutral color yet a bit unexpected in a sea of black sneakers. Plus, the vintage styling means I can toss these on with jeans or a day dress for a street chic look. To maximize the street cred of this look, I added a fun studded crossbody handbag by Nine West. It’s the perfect size to hold your gym card, phone, a few blotting papers, lip gloss and keys — all my gym essentials! A little jewelry — a few cute beaded Jessica Simpson bracelets — add a little arm candy to the look, without getting in the way of your workout.
If you’re ready to hit a new gym in style, remember a few simple things: choose a neutral legging in a fun print or with sporty details like cutouts or mesh; opt for a tee or tank that makes a statement; and find the perfect athletic shoes to meet your needs and match your wardrobe. Whether you opt for Betsey Johnson Performance, Calvin Klein Performance, Under Armour, Puma or any other cool fitness brand, get ready to work it out while you’re workin’ a fab fitness look!
