Reasonable workout clothes: Stella McCartney for Adidas.
It’s summertime, and that can only mean one thing for between-school adolescents and soccer moms alike: extended pool time and fewer square inches of body covered. This can be a harrowing realization upon thinking back to the turkey stuffing, eggnog, and Bûches de Noël from the holidays. However, if you’re like me and that sometimes isn’t enough motivation to get yourself in gear, check out the luxury workout wear being produced by athletic companies. While not altogether reasonable, what better way to get yourself moving than to be the best dressed in the gym?
For exercises like yoga and pilates, try Lululemon, a high-end athletic design company that specializes in basics for these disciplines. While we don’t have a Lululemon here in Nashville, you can find one in the Morningside Show Room of Atlanta. Alternatively, order from the comfort of your own home at lululemon.com. I love this store because it offers stylish workout gear for both men and women, making it a one-stop shop for the fit, fashionable couple.
If you’re looking to glam up your workout, try knee-high softball socks that are equal parts fashionable and functional. Though not ideally designed for high-impact workouts, these little numbers a great way to add retro flair to your exercise wardrobe.
You can also personalize your workout clothes to add more panache to your routine. Check out nike.com and play around with the NIKEiD program, which allows you to customize your running shoes with your name, team colors, or anything else that will get you on a treadmill. Just don’t trip over yourself while you’re admiring your stylish kicks.
