2015 Workout Chic

Mimi and Mademoiselle are like everyone else, they always resolve to eat less and exercise more. We suggest a good way to get started, instill confidence and persevere toward our goals is by dressing the part! Great gear is a great motivator.

Mimi’s noted the trend of fitness clothes that go from workout to coffee, errands, class or a casual lunch. There are excellent choices on the market from old standards like Nike, Under Armour, Athleta and Gap to newer brands like Fabletics. Fabletics allows you to create a personal profile with a VIP membership and then each month you will receive personalized outfit ideas based upon your profile. However, Mimi believes that no one does workout clothes better than Lululemon Athletica, especially if you are looking for clothes to go from the gym to the street or rather, yoga to coffee or even the grocery store. Warm or cold, Lululemon has the gear for any age group and any exercise. Mimi’s latest cold weather favorite is the Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Shirt, Base Runner Pant and the Wrap it Up sweater. The wash ability and wear ability of the brand is proven, and despite a setback with last year’s too sheer tights, they seem to be leading the game. To be fair, there are other new brands like Dona Jo Fitwear, Koral Activewear (especially the faux leather legging and bra- to oohlala for Mimi) and this spring a line from Track & Bliss that could also give Lulu some competition. I’ll keep my eyes open and let you know!  

Mademoiselle loves the classic Wunder Under Pant, in all shades, but especially black. On the top, she usually pairs them with a college t-shirt for the day time, but when running around town or off to a yoga class, she sports the Power Y Tank with either a Lulu sweater or Daily Practice Long Sleeve. Even if Mademoiselle doesn’t make it to the gym or yoga class that day, she at least looked stylish wherever she went! Looking the part is everything, is it not?
