Spring Athleisure Style: 1 pair of workout leggings, 4 unique street fashion outfits
From Gigi to Kendall to Beyonce, the chicest of the chic are rocking moto and mesh leggings at the gym, on the streets and even out at night - it’s true! We’ll show you how below.
Your favorite workout pieces are not just for downward dogs or snatches! We sent three of our favorite fashionistas a pair of Sadhana Leggings and a unique, stylish Sports Bra, all from WODSuperStore.com and asked them to put together an “athleisure” look – we put together a look too!
From your toughest WOD (that's "workout of the day" for you non-CrossFitters) to a lazy brunch, or even a long day of running errands and shuttling kids around town, *this* is how we rock our comfy athletic gear outside the gym…
Glam on the Go
Just try feeling down after scrolling through Ashley Dunn’s Instagram page – we dare you! The way she uses bright color and inspires an "I-never-thought-of-that-outfit" moment will keep you smiling.
“The bold bright color and one shoulder style is perfect for layering.”
And layer she did, proving this Glam on the Go athleisure look can take you from across-town errands to a date with the gym, where this Stylist and TV Fashion Expert switches out her flowy palm tree pants and long robe for the Sadhana Moto and Mesh Leggings in Black with complimentary ruching and cool mesh panels.
Even after her workout, Ashley admits she didn't want to take the leggings off!
"OMG!!! The Leggings Fit Amazing; I Love The High Waist and Functionality."
Brunches and Crunches
Her friends call her "V" but she calls herself obsessed with skincare, working out and fashion. And when we sent Vanessa Cantu these “REALLY comfy” Sadhana Amelia Leggings and open back Serena Sports Bra in Pink (also in Teal), she couldn't help but put together more than one look!
Whether she’s headed straight to the gym, or planning to lounge just a little bit longer at brunch before ultimately deciding to skip the gym and have another mimosa (we won’t tell!) Vanessa is ready for anything in this sporty look.
“(The bra is) one size fits all, which I normally steer clear of because of how busty I am," she said. "This (sports bra) not only fit, it ... gave the right amount of coverage and support.”
We love the way she paired her open back sports bra with the racer back vest, showing just a sliver of skin on her shoulder blades – how sexy and unexpected is that?
Speaking of sexy, Vanessa writes in her blog that she loves the way the mesh cut outs in her Sadhana Amelia Leggings (also in Neon) wrap from the front of her legs to the sides, drawing the eye to all the right places.
“(The leggings) fit like a glove and the wide waistband keeps everything nicely tucked in… I would definitely try some of their other styles solely based on the quality of the fabric.”
Workout to Night Out
When Courtney Perna is not running digital marketing campaigns or hosting a Television show, she’s running to happy hours and fashion events across town.From her WOD in Sadhana Amelia Leggings (also in Neon) with on trend mesh cut-outs and flowy black tank, Courtney throws on a classic blazer, bold necklace and killer heels (of course!) before heading out to meet the girls.
Right away, Courtney was impressed by the four-way stretch material in the leggings.
"From my downward dog to just bending down to pick up my keys, there was no 'over exposure' on the backside," she laughs. "If you know what I mean!"
Her monochromatic look, with a pop of color in the clutch, is effortlessly cool and a little mysterious, but adding a leather jacket over the sexy Born Primitive strappy Sports Bra in Black Splash and scoop back tank easily ups the edge ante.
"The strappy back bra adds a sexy surprise, but honestly, I love it because it's so comfy and comes in so many colors!"
Muscle Ups to Batter Up
We can't let the fashionistas have all the fun, so we asked CrossFitter and full-time working Mom Stacy Osborn to model one more athleisure look; one that is sure to help little Hunter spot his mama sending him Home as he runs the bases!
In these Neon and Black Amelia Leggings with perfectly angled mesh panels, Stacy goes from the "box" she works out in to the baseball diamond and all over town in her four-way stretch and mesh leggings (also in all Black), mixing "fashion and function."
She says she loves loves the flow of the contrasting colors, especially the "sweetheart" stitching on the backside.
“It looks like I have a booty!” Stacy squeals.
To top off the look, this ex-gymnast is rocking a half-tucked, easy muscle t-shirt, with a peekabo back to show off her strappy, yet supportive Rhapsody Sports Bra.
“I LOVE this bra," Stacy gushes. "I have trouble finding enough support and after trying Victoria's Secret, Under Armour and countless others, this one keeps ‘the girls’ in place through my entire workout, which includes handstand push-ups, rope climbs, weight-lifting you name it.”
And if we know Stacy, she probably hit the jungle gym at the park to get in some chin-ups and toes-to-bar while her little slugger was in the dugout.
