We wish we could take a leisurely shower, blow dry our hair, and change into a fabulous new outfit after every workout, but the truth of the matter is, we rarely have the time. The good news? We’ve found new ways to pair our favorite workout staples (leggings, tops and running shoes, to start) with fall’s best cozy layers and eye-catching accessories that can take us from the yoga studio to happy hour in no time flat. By starting with some workout basics in fun colors, transitioning from your workouts to the rest of your life doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are some easy ways to still look polished and put together this fall after even the most intense workout:
From Barre to Bar
Delicate ballet flats feel right at home next to get-down-to-business black leggings. Pair with a sweat-wicking workout top for an outfit that will help you tackle tricky barre moves with confidence. Throw on a silky oversized blazer and tote to transition into happy hour with friends.
From Spinning To Shopping
A sweat-inducing spin class calls for wicking fabrics and a solid pair of shoes, but after you’re done, pair your spin leggings with a cozy gray sweater and cross-body bag (with fringe!) to go wherever you please post-workout and still look chic.
From Yoga to Your Office
Get your savasana on with stretchy graphic leggings and a plain white workout T. Pair with a flowy black poncho and moccasins for a relaxed look that’s perfect for casual Fridays (or meeting up with friends after hours). A burgundy bag adds a pop of color and a touch of autumn.
From Running Laps To Running Errands
You want body-hugging clothes that stay in place while you run, but that doesn’t mean your outfit has to suffer. Invest in some bright colored running shoes to make any run a little happier, and add a cozy plaid scarf to complete the look.
From Trail To Travel
We get it: we want to get our workouts in too before we travel by plane, train or automobile. After all, traveling often requires sitting for hours on end. But, before you sit your butt down, hit the trail for a quick workout in these fabulous printed leggings and a plain black tee. When you’re finished, throw on a cozy sweater and some comfy moccasins and you’re ready to hit the runway (see what we did there?).
