Starting the summer wishing you could sport your airiest gym tank and most breathable crop leggings to the office? Well, good news – you totally can -- and it’s easier than you probably think. Okay, so while wearing your favourite sports bra and sneakers from nine to five is probably a faux pas, mixing and matching well-tailored active wear with more professional pieces can appropriately take you from your desk job to Zumba class in a flash. Not sure where to begin? Start by experimenting with the following pieces for completely stylish and (partially) gym-ready looks:
Titika Backpack: Oh, how convenient. You ‘forgot’ your gym bag at home-- again. Well, consider said excuse no longer valid. Not only has Titika designed the cutest gym bag known to man, it’s so practical you’ll bring it along everywhere. The bag features a removable zippered pouch and water resistant lining making it a cute, yet functional bag that’s perfect for storing everything from your runners, to your latest report, to your lunch. Win.
Lucky Legging: Instead of wearing everyday translucent tights under your dress or tunic, sport a pair of exercise leggings that’ll allow you to pop into the yoga studio post-meeting with ease. Titika’s universally flattering Lucky Legging offers an office appropriate matte finish, plus their moisture-wicking material will keep you dry and comfortable through a tough workout. During office hours, pair the tights with a cute tunic dress, light scarf and tall boots.
Jadon Crop: You’ve waited all week for casual Friday so why not indulge in Titika’s comfortable, yet super-fun Jadon pant? The key to wearing these stylish harem pants from 9 to 5 is to define your waist by sporting a fitted garment on your top half. Try a slim-fit shirt or chiffon blouse to balance out the structure of the look. We recommend rocking the Jadon pant with some killer heels, especially if you’re on the shorter side (though girly flats will work, too). Post-work day simply swap your top for a basic tank and voila; an on-trend, sporty vibe perfect for any sweat sesh.
Alexia Tank: There’s dressing for success. There’s dressing for the gym. And then there’s the Alexia tank. This gorgeous lace tank is loose fitting, airy and can take you from the office to spin class in an instant. Sport the racer back tank with an elongated blazer, cropped dress pants and delicate jewelry en route to the office, then change into any Titika legging for a chic, gym-friendly look.
When you’re a busy professional, fitting a workout into your already hectic schedule can be a serious challenge. But by getting a little creative and incorporating a few versatile pieces into your wardrobe, you can help make heading from that important meeting to yoga class completely stress free. Namaste!
