Don’t confine your sportswear pieces. With some creative styling, you can integrate them into your everyday looks. Every other week, I’ve got you covered with new outfit ideas for the gym and Not Just for the Gym.
Bottom: Puma Logo Leggings
Shoe: Nike Free 3.0
Have you hopped on the patterned leggings trend yet? I just did with these Puma leggings – the print and the color are incredible. If you’re not quite ready to take the plunge on brights, just start with one piece and pair it with neutral colors. These leggings got me pretty hyped walking through the mall after the gym.
I used to wear Elite Socks exclusively for basketball, but now I wear them almost every day (they’re 3 for $30 right now, FYI!). They’re comfortable and have the perfect elasticity – plus they come in several colors for whatever mood you’re in. Chucks are classic, and I’m convinced they look cool with anything – especially when they’re a little dirty. I’m wearing them with faux leather joggers at the coffee shop.
Shoe: Nike Air Force 1 Mid
“And I can’t even go to the grocery store without some 1s that’s clean and a shirt with a team.” – Kanye West. Sorry, couldn’t help myself. Anyway, I grabbed these semi-ridiculous pants for a theme party a while back, and I sneak them into everyday-wear by pairing them with basics. White AF1s are always a good choice in my books. And, of course, I’m wearing Elite Socks underneath.
I wasn’t sold on the sneaker wedge at first, but I got my first pair of Nike Sky His last spring and never looked back. My latest addition to the lineup is the Puma Sky Wedge in Black and Rose Gold, which I wore for a night at the arcade with the bf. Comfort was the key, so I rocked my Pumas with Nike leggings (I’m retiring cotton leggings from my wardrobe), a blouse and my Nike Destroyer jacket.
