We know shopping for workout gear can get expensive, but if you shop smartly, some of your workout gear can work for class and for cocktails. Check out these multi-functional picks and tell us what you do to transition from class to a night out in the comments.
Scoop Back Sleeve Top
Where to buy it: Onzie, $50
Why we love it: This shirt is perfect for transitioning from yoga to a night out. The plunging back creates for a fun detail and can easily be dressed up or down. Just swap that sports bra for a black lacy one and you’re set.
Crackle Chaturanga Leggings
Where to buy it: Athleta, $89
Why we love it: The extra-shiny embossing on this legging makes transitioning from class to a night out even easier. It almost gives the effect of a leather legging, making it easy to dress up.
Good to Go Skirt
Where to buy it: Lululemon, $98
Why we love it: Just like the description, this skirt makes you good-to-go after the gym. Switch out leggings for tights and pair it with a cute top and you’re set to head out. Also, how cute is that detail?
Active Drop Arm Tank
Where to buy it: Old Navy, $15
Why we love it: This graphic tank with a built-in sports bra is perfect for class and hiding any sweat. Paired with a solid pant and you can still make a statement.
Sunset Hatha Jacket
Where to buy it: Lucy, $90
Why we love it: Pair this sleek jacket with a cute pair of jeans and statement jewelry and you’re cardio-to-cocktail routine just got easier. A long sleeve jacket is also practical, now that the weather is getting cooler.
Where to buy it: Nordstroms, $20
Why we love it: It’s never a fun workout when your hair is in your face – but with these brightly-colored beauties, you won’t have to worry. Once you finish your class, try a fishtail braid or simple bun paired with the headband for your night out.
Fleece Zip Pocket Pant
Where to buy it: Old Navy, $27
Why we love it: Joggers are making their way back on the scene! This pant allows you to stay active at the gym and transition to a night out with ease and simple styling.
Wide Leg Linen Pant
Where to buy it: Nordstrom, $92
Why we love it: A black lounge pant is a solid staple item for your fall. Pair it with a cute tank or top for your next yoga class. Also, because this pair is linen, it keeps you cool in the summer, too.
Relaxed Workout Tank
Where to buy it: Forever 21, $7
Why we love it: There’s nothing better than a comfortable, oversized tank when you’re working out extra hard – and sweating like crazy. Because the material hangs off of you, you won’t feel constricted.
Stripe Racerback Tank
Where to buy it: Nordstrom, $62
Why we love it: We love stripes and we especially love a sexy back. Best of all – it’s comfy enough for class, and paired with a pair of jeans and a jacket, cute enough for Monday night beers, watching the game.
