Sportive vs chic
Are you obsessed with one of your sport camisoles, but feel like you can only wear it to the gym? Think again. Here is a guide to transform your sports gear into the perfect work outfit. Not only have profited from your purchase because you can wear it to work out and to work, but you are also able to be comfortable and feeling fully supported in your next meeting.
Layer it up
The idea is not to cover up your sport gear, but rather to enhance it! By adding some layers you change the whole outfit and make it more interesting. The first step is to find a good basic, that is fitted. You have that with the Camilla Top. Then you can add a cardigan, go on to a jacket and finish it off with a scarf.
Pair it with your current work clothing
Don’t be scared to mix and match your gym clothes with traditional office attire. Pick an item that has a nice rich or neutral color and dress it up! Putting a blazer over a workout cami can be the key to sophistication and comfort. Don’t forget that adding jewellery to your look will make it more elaborate.
We already know that layering is the key in this equation, but another important element to layering is the mix of textures because that’s how you are going to create an interesting composure. With gym clothes, it’s already super easy because you already have a fun fabric to work with. Never forget to layer thin to thick and light to heavy. Contrasting different fabrics will help create dimension.
Play with the clothes
There are certain ways to make your gym wear look like casual clothes. Try to take a different approach than when you’re wearing them to the gym. That way, at the first glance, you seem like you’re wearing a totally casual outfit. You can tuck it in your jeans, tie a small part in a knot or loosen a sleeve. Be creative!
It’s no secret that sportswear is the trend of the decade. You can see sports brands everywhere, at every occasion. It pretty much started with sneakers. They would be seen paired with dresses or skirts for every occasion. Then the athletic influence became more subtle and active wear became a luxury appeal. Dressing like you just got out of the gym is now a normal thing, lucky us! So keep doing what you’re doing, add some sports gear into your everyday wardrobe and be the coolest, most comfortable employee ever.
