Stylish Athleisure Pieces for a Seamless Transition from Gym to Brunch
By TOI Team August 3, 2023 Update on : August 3, 2023
We’ve all been there: You struggle to get out of bed on Sunday for an early workout class (even after hitting the snooze button too many times). After the class, you check your phone and realize your friends are making last-minute plans for brunch. Panic sets in because you feel sweaty and icky, and your outfit is unsuitable for a nice restaurant. While you can quickly shower and do some makeup in the locker room, finding a cute outfit seems impossible if you don’t have time to go home.
But fear not! We have the solution. Here are some of our favorite handy athleisure pieces that you can rely on when those spontaneous brunch plans come up:
1. Walker Classic
Whether it’s arm, leg, or cardio day, a cool sneaker gives you the support and stability for the gym and more. Vionic’s cushioned orthotic, approved by podiatrists, feels super comfy even when jogging on the track. Get inspired by Bella Hadid, who rocks athleisure style, and complete the look with a large sweatshirt, long biker shorts, and some bold sunglasses from Bvlgari’s latest eyewear.
2. Must-Have Diamond Necklace
People used to avoid wearing jewelry to the gym because they didn’t want to ruin their favorite pieces, but that changed when they got a sweat-proof solid gold necklace. A delicate necklace won’t bother you while lifting weights or doing pilates. The classic round diamond accent goes perfectly with your activewear and entire wardrobe for many years.
3. Airlift Long Sleeve Ballet Dream Bra
Believe me when I say I’ve never seen athleisure look so stylish. Sweat it out in the strappy sports bra, and then add the sheer mesh overlay in the locker room for an instant street-style upgrade. Complete the look with an Airlift leggings for a trendy monochrome outfit.
4. The Exercise Dress
A workout dress combines comfort and style perfectly. Choose one that has shorts liner with sticky grippers on the hem, so you won’t have to do that awkward shimmy to adjust them. Add a crossbody fanny pack and a baseball cap for that trendy it-girl look.
5. Court Rival High-Rise Skirt
A skirt is perfect for all running fans, tennis players, and pickleball lovers. Glide effortlessly across the track or court in a light and comfortable skirt. Choose a skirt with a fabric that wicks away sweat and dries quickly, keeping you cool while you work out. And the best part is it has a pocket perfectly sized for your phone, so you can stay connected on the move.
6. Flocked Rhythm Scrunchie
Swap your regular hair tie for a stylish mesh scrunchie. The minimalist pattern gives it a designer-like look, and the small knot bow adds a touch of Parisian chic to any gym outfit.
7. Squareneck Slim Tank
A crop tank top is stylish and works as a supportive sports bra – a perfect combo! It feels smooth and flattering without any pinching or restrictions during workouts. Choose a square neckline that allows space for a delicate necklace or statement earrings, so you can dress it up effortlessly after leaving the gym.Read more: Stylish Athleisure Pieces for a Seamless Transition from Gym to Brunch
