I’ve been struggling with trying to combine my fashion and fitness expertise into one “brand”. I love both so very much and when I’m in the midst of either am so happy. I love the joy of putting together a killer outfit and the feeling a great workout and eating healthy bring to me. I struggle with how I can share these with the world in a streamlined, sensible way.
Nowadays the two go had in hand. Fashion and fitness are so intertwined for a few reasons. First, the emergence of Athleisure has made it not only fashionable but practical to dress in fitness apparel. That is if you’re doing it right of course! If you follow me on Instagram (@ugobabyfitness) you’ll know I work as a stylist at Saks Fifth Avenue in Boston, so I get to see all the latest styles come in. From Public School, Opening Ceremony, to even higher end designer brands like Fendi and Vehements, athletic is the latest aesthetic.
If you struggle with how you can sport this style here are some ideas I pulled from some Street Style sites.
Midriff baring tops are back big time. If you are comfortable enough rock the hell out of those sports bras wherever you go.
This i certainly a more bold look, red heels are a must in anyone’s wardrobe. They go with everything!
I love how Gigi pairs her gym outfit with an elegant coat.
This is your most basic athleisure look, I love it though. Simple and so on trend. The motorcycle jacket is everything right now.
I love how these heels pair with the striped pants.
You can wear sneakers with anything.
Some of these styles are a bit more bold than others, but they can help inspire you to get more fashionable, funky and even glamorous with your workout clothes. What’s your favorite athleisure look?
My favorite thing to wear when the weather gets nice enough is a dress. They’re so easy, comfortable and feminine. Here are my favorite dress trends for spring/ summer 2017. What are yours??
- Blue and white stripes and off the shoulder.
2. Blush and bell sleeves.
3) The boho-maxi.
4) Tropical prints.
5) Tie dye.
I was watching the Today Show this morning, and no I don’t normally have time to watch TV but I was feeding my 4 month old so really had no choice. But… I saw these great jeans on one of their segments. Levi’s Curve ID. I always have a problem finding jeans that fit right as I think most of us do. They tend to fit just right on my waist but are too tight on my bum. The idea behind these jeans alleviates that problem by asking you a few questions to find out your body type and what you’re dealing with in the booty department. I haven’t tried them yet so cannot testify to their accuracy in fit.
Please email me and let me know if you have and let me know what your thoughts are, did they fit like you expected and would you recommend these to your friends?
