Ask Shopbop: Workout Wear

Running to the store in post-gym sweats is far from ideal. How can I inject some style into my workout wardrobe?

From time to time we all find ourselves running out of the gym for an afternoon of errands in our sweaty sneakers. Considering that Murphy’s Law always seems to put you face to face with your ex in the grocery isle, I have a few super-easy tricks to transition your workout wear into a casual-chic look.

SUNGLASSES
They lend some instant glamour when you’re outside and work as a headband to corral errant hair when you’re inside.

SCARVES
A scarf can add a pop of color to brighten up a no-makeup moment, and they do double time by covering up the workout tank you have on underneath.

FASHION SNEAKERS
Quickly kicking off your trainers and trading them for a chic sneak that has a little height and sense of humor can help you feel more pulled together.

EASY JACKET
Pulling a sharp jacket over your whole workout look will round things out. It’s like pulling a duvet cover over rumpled sheets for a bed that appears well-made. Make sure the jacket is easy to wash, since you’ll be layering over workout wear. Denim styles or bright nylon anoraks are good options.
