It is early in the morning, and you are just back from your exhilarating morning run. While enjoying your coffee in a roadside café afterward would you be okay if you decide to go meet a friend without changing?
Or what if you are late for a casual dinner and drinks with friends after work and you still had to hit the gym? Will you drop the workout altogether because you know there will be no time to change into casual wear after gym?
These scenarios mess up your workout routine and leave you with the hardest decision of all, dropping the gym! Thankfully, you don’t have to do that anymore because wearing workout clothes to a casual party has recently become more normalized.
But wait! Don’t just enter a party with your sweats or joggers on without making some teeny tiny tweaks first! Let us introduce you to the athleisure trend!
With the catchiest (and probably the most comforting) slogan, “leggings are the new denim,” the CEO of Nike had changed horizon of athletic wear forever. It took time, but the concept sunk in deep into street fashion around the world.
A smart leather bag
Always keep a smart leather handbag, be it a crossbody handbag or a simple one in your gym backpack because you never know where life can take you. This simple piece is an essential element that turns your workout gear into stylish and chic in seconds. Now, you won’t ever have to waste time to go home and change into your party clothes.
Trendy crop top
Crop tops always come to the rescue. It is more like when in doubt, wear a block colored crop and you are good to go. Grab your favorite crop top and stuff it in your gym backpack so that whenever you want to go places right after the gym, you do not have to worry about going home and changing.
A crop top also brings out the slim, toned figure that you work out extensively for. So, why not show off how working out has been paying you off! Pull a crop top over your sweatpants and rock the athleisure fashion. Added bonus: you’d walk out of the gym looking just like Kim K!
A good quality real leather jacket is just what every woman needs in her wardrobe. A leather jacket can turn any outfit of yours into a classy, but edgy one. So, go on and grab that leather jacket and throw it over your sweats. With stylish sports joggers and a classy set of shades, you are good to go to a party with friends or casual dining out.
Denim-front buttoned shirt
This essential piece is the simplest thing that you can add to your gym or workout outfit. Just remember to take a simple denim front open shirt with your gym things, and voila; you’ve got that edgy look everyone is craving for these days.
Loose front-open shirts go fabulously with slim fitted sweatshirts and pants. The shirt enhances and accentuates your figure and flaunts your toned body. Throw in a pair of Tom’s or some flats, and your look is complete.
This might be one of the hardest to pull off as leather boots and sweatpants are quite unheard of. Yet, if you’ve got a beloved pair of sexy leather boots, and you are a hard party kind of a person, don’t forget to pack your leather boots to the gym.
Brown or black suede leather boots go almost perfectly with grey or black sweatpants. Just remember to add in two or more of the above essentials to complete your transformation to a casual outfit. Throw in the stylish yet practical leather bag and combine it with a leather jacket or a denim shirt.
Hope these essentials make you the most stylish one at the party or dine out even after a hard day at the gym. As there cannot be anything definitive in fashion, feel free to add in any other essential item that you think should be on the list. Do let us know what else can be added in the comments.
