You know all those adorable athletic clothes you got in preparation for your New Year's resolution? The ones that have been sitting in your drawer since you got them? Well, not to worry, because we've figured out the perfect way to finally help you get some use out of them! Check out these three totally different and utterly amazing ways to incorporate activewear into your daily outfit so you can rock the sporty look this season... without having to step foot in a gym!
1. Pop of neon
If you happened to receive a pair of fabulous neon sneakers this holiday, like these Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 ($89.99 at 6pm.com), don't wait until you finally head to the gym to rock them! Since the shoes are so bright, keep the rest of your outfit neutral with a black Womens Ultra Light Down Hooded Coat ($59.90 at UNIQLO). To balance out the fullness of the coat, pair your sneaks with another athleticwear staple: Under Armour Authentic Leggings ($39.99 at bare necessities). Wear your leggings with an easy Loose Solid-Tone & Single-Pocket Tank ($15.99 at BlackFive) for a sporty yet comfy vibe. Finish off the look with a knit beanie to add a bit of texture and to stay warm!
2. Cute and comfy
Even the least athletic collegiette owns a sweatshirt, and we're obsessed with this North Face Women's Half Dome Hoodie ($45 at The North Face). Throw it on over the college girl staple of High Waist Ponte Treggings ($45 at Topshop) and Blank Ankle Boots ($59.95 at Yoins) in black to create a streamlined silhouette. Stay warm and add some interest by layering this Miss Kissy Detachable Fleece Lined Hooded Parka ($81.81 at YesStyle.com) over your outfit. Add one last sporty touch with a black athletic watch, like this Reebok Women's Warm Up Camo Black Strap Watch ($49.95 at Macy's). It gives you a bit of toughness and keeps you from being late to class!
3. Urban trendy
For the urbanite, this sporty outfit with metallic accents is perfect. Pair your on-trend workout sweats, like these Aerie Skinny Jogger in Silver Shadow ($34.95 at American Eagle), with a pastel sport top, like this Victoria's Secret Sport Crop Top ($32.50 at Victoria's Secret). Accent the crop top by tying a denim or chambray shirt, like this MANGO Denim Shirt ($39.99 at MANGO), around your waist, channeling your inner Kardashian! Add some gilded accents with these Keds Women's Champion Metallic Oxford Sneakers ($50 at Macy's) and turn up the tunes with the LMNT Adjustable Headphones ($32 at Lord & Taylor). Not only will you look impossibly trendy, but maybe the right playlist will even inspire you to hit the gym!
Even if your new activewear never sees the inside of a gym, you can still get your money's worth from your sporty new wardrobe. Happy styling, collegiettes!
