The “gym-to-street” trend has changed the way we think about fashion: leggings have replaced pants, fleece and down jackets have replaced coats, and sneakers have changed footwear forever. The gym is so central to our lives that many of us walk around all day as if we were on our way or back from the health club. For this reason, designers are creating clothes suitable for the gym and after; brands like Simply Breathe and Princess Vera Wang have stylish post-workout collections worn by celebrities such as Gigi Hadid, Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Ashley Tisdale, Brooke Burke, Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner, Gisele Bundchen and Sofia Vergara.
All you need to recreate their relaxed look is to add a structured statement bag, a big scarf that can be wrapped for stylish effect, and an embellished tee or sleek cardigan from the Vera Wang collections at Kohl’s – all of which retail for under $100. The black Vera Wang top has a solid crossover flyaway that flatters any figure and can easily be adapted for the evening with its sexy front piece. Just add some statement jewelry. The short pant by Simply Vera is versatile too: snug and flattering with sneakers or killer heels.
In the same vibe of relaxed chic, Burnetie Shoes brings a touch of vintage sophistication to their collection of durable high tops. With soft leather and a faded canvas, the classic shoe mixes yesterday’s formal beauty and today’s relaxed comfort at very reasonable prices. All materials used are environmentally responsible.

A great piece of jewelry also adds dimension to a casual “gym to street” look. Keep to minimal, powerful designs like Robert Matthew’s Silver Ashley Bangle, the perfect-day-to-night-piece in silver plated stainless steel with a hinge fastening. Elegant and graphic, it has a winning design that can be mixed with many looks to project understated chic and confidence.
All The Above Clothing offers easy basics in comfortable cotton that you can combine with loose bohemian pants or edgy leggings. Each piece in the shirt collection is inspired by a quote or lyric, which is then turned into an abstract and cryptic design. Facebook fans give the inspiration for the designs and receive credit on the inside print of each design; for example, this long-sleeve T-shirt was inspired by “growing wings.” A full 10 % of every purchase goes to the charity of your choice and towards other programs for worthy causes. How cool is that?
