Dress up after your workout, how to wear your leggings out.
Posted on 10 March 2015
For most of us, going to the gym is not the main event of our day. Whether it's running errands, attending classes, or going to work, we need to transition quickly after a gym session. Maybe going to the gym is the last thing on your to do list on a super busy day and you just don’t want to soil your clean clothes after you’ve been sweating puddles. So, whether you’re running to the gym between errands or just want to relax and dress comfortably, there are so many ways you can look stylish in your workout leggings.

The first option is to dress your feet. With a nice pair of shoes, every outfit will look like it was put together with thought. If you're going for a nice night out you may want to dress up your leggings with a pair of pumps. This touch will definitely make your outfit look like it has been put together with thought. If you’re not the high heel type of girl, then some nice boots or a cute pair of flats would be just as flattering. If you don’t like dressy shoes or just want to stay tastefully casual, some cool, luxe looking monochromatic flats will do fine!
Another way to make your leggings look cooler is to change into a nicer, dressier top. You can keep your workout shirt on and just throw on a chunky knit sweater or a gorgeous jacket like the one pictured above. If you want to get out of your workout top completely then put on a loose knit shirt for that effortlessly cute sporty-casual look. For example, our “JB For Keeps V-Neck” fitted sleeve top looks amazing with leggings. It is a little oversized so you can hang it off your shoulder for that carelessly lounge look (see picture). On colder days, a faux leather jacket will definitely make you stand out and give your outfit the edge it needs after a workout. To step up your outfit game, try wearing some graphic leggings to give your style some dimension. Our “NUX Tie Dye” leggings would be the perfect edge. (see picture) If you do wear graphic leggings, you may want to keep the rest of your outfit simple, so that you don’t look too cluttered. If you’re not into graphic leggings and just want to keep it basic, then try our “Beyond Yoga Slim Leg Pant”. Not only are they super comfortable, but they will keep your legs looking slim and sexy!
For those of you that don’t want to change too much and just take it easy, try on an athletic jacket. Whether it’s with graphics or just a solid print, you can give yourself that sporty street style without changing out of your leggings. Just make sure to color coordinate!
To complete your sporty look, add a pair of sunglasses on your head or simply wear them: nothing says sexy more than a confident woman in her stunner shades.
Last but not least, a little makeup goes a long way when it comes to making your outfit look like it was put together with time and thought. To tie your gym outfit together, a fresh face is always welcome! Wash the sweat off of your face and put on a little bit of eyeliner and mascara to give yourself an extra oomph. For final touches, tie your hair up in a cute up do such as a messy bun or braided pony tail... or just style it quickly by running a straightener through to get rid of any frizz. Leggings and workout pants are a huge trend in the fashion world right now, so don’t be afraid to casually wear them out!
