The Ultimate Fitness Capsule Wardrobe

You know how they say "When you look good, you feel good"?  It's true! I always feel better about getting into the gym and working out when I'm wearing a cute sports bra or new pair of running shoes. My fitness routine is a weekly rotation between pilates on the Megaformer, spin, and outdoor running so I'm in workout clothes a lot. I'm always on the lookout for trendy emerging brands and workout-to-daywear appropriate pieces so that my look always reflects my personal style no matter what I'm doing. 

A few of my favorite brands lately are Varley, Outdoor Voices and Strut-This for their statement-making sports bras and surprisingly Forever 21 for their super affordable (and durable) line of activewear.  

My typical workout look would be a pair of full length leggings, a crop top sports bra and either Toesox to pilates or a pair of running shoes if I'm going out for a jog. After my workout I'll throw on a bomber jacket or tie it around my waist for a more complete look and go grab a smoothie or run some errands before I head home. 

With the new year and a long list of resolutions and goals geared toward health and fitness, it is only right to kickstart your routine with an updated workout wardrobe. Sure, your brand new sports bra or cut-out leggings might not make you faster or stronger, but looking the part is half the battle!

Here, all my fitness favorites that will have you looking chic and on trend for any workout and beyond.
