I live in Southern California, which is the mecca of the workout world. It is very common to see all kinds of women running around in their workout clothing, whether they have been to the gym or not. As a matter of fact, I know people with “good gym clothing” which they only wear while running errands. They don’t ever wear it to work out! I try to ascribe to the way Miss Dita wears her pilates uniform, which is underneath a coat with a pair of sunglasses and a swipe of red lipstick. But as I was perusing the internet, I noticed a plethora of really pretty workout clothing. So I thought I would put together a round-up of the exercise gear I thought was glamorous; almost glamorous enough to be worn while out in public!
Aren’t these pastel covered leggings quite lovely? I think so. (Here)
I have never seen a shirt draped like this one and thought it almost looked like something a greek goddess would wear. I think this top would look perfect with the leggings seen above. (Here)
I am a sucker for a little ruffle, which I think is such a pretty and feminine touch to these black leggings. (Here)
This cowl necked lounge top has a beautiful lace and small ruffle detail which elevates this top from something that can only be worn at the gym to being worthy of being worn while in public. (Here)
I love the slight flair on these exercise capris. (Here)
Though this polka dotted top looks like a retro top, it is actually designed to be worn while exercising! (Here)
Did you know Trina Turk has a new line of exercise clothing? Her style tends to be more late 1960s-1970s inspired, but I thought these leggings were cute. Check out the collection here.
Here is another pair of floral leggings. I would feel very glamorous while wearing these at the gym. (Here)
For those of you who insist on only wearing tee shirts and/or sweatshirts while working out, might I suggest an upgrade with this delightful Pride & Prejudice top? (Here)
Though I don’t advocate wearing exercise clothing instead of “normal” clothes, I understand how real life works. We don’t always have time to exercise and then take a shower, put on a full face, get dressed in a different outfit, and then get on with our day. So if you need to run errands either right before or right after the gym, at the very least remember to change your sneakers for a pair of ballet flats. They really do upgrade an otherwise too casual ensemble. (Here)
