Are you tired of changing into gym clothes after a long day at the office? Do you want to go from work to work-out without sacrificing your style? We got you sis! In this article, we'll be sharing our favourite tips from us at Perks Liftwear on how to take your outfit from the office to the gym with ease.
1. Invest in versatile clothing
Look for pieces that can easily transition from the office to the gym, such as leggings or biker shorts that can be paired with a blouse or blazer for work. We recommend our high-rise bike shorts to take you from meetings to mid-day workouts. Our high-rise anchoring waistband will keep your tummy comfortably covered at the office and then snatched and supported when you’re at the gym.
2. Layer your workout clothes underneath your office clothes
If you're wearing a dress or skirt to the office, you can layer a pair of leggings or tights underneath. You can wear a sports bra instead of a bra underneath your work clothes so you can just pull off your shirt when you get to your yoga class. It’s also a good idea to swap out your heels for sneakers at the office before you run to the gym.
3. Choose neutral-coloured workout pieces
Earth-toned colours like black, grey, brown, and beige clothing are generally considered better for the office just because it gives off a more professional and polished look compared to bright or bold colours. They are more subtle and minimalistic so that you can fly more under the radar with that sports tank under your cardigan (shh.. nobody will know!). Perks bike shorts have the most beautiful selection of earth-toned bike shorts which include black, burgundy, beige, and grey that will be the perfect addition to any office look.
4. Opt for multi-functional accessories
Accessories like a backpack or crossbody bag can be used to carry your work essentials during the day and your workout gear after hours. You can also wear a smartwatch or fitness tracker to track your workouts and stay connected throughout the day.
5. Choose the right sneakers
If you're planning to work out after work, make sure to wear comfortable shoes that can handle the intensity of your workout. Luckily these days, sneakers are more acceptable at the office. Running shoes and cross trainers have become such a huge part of the everyday fashion scene so opting for a stylish pair of sneakers that can double as both work and workout is the goal!
