How to Make Your Workout Look an All-Day Look

Like it or not, yoga pants and fashionable athleisure wear seem here to stay. Personally, I'm a fan. Even though I still love to put extra effort in some days (and have to for some occasions), I really appreciate that there are lots of options out there that make it acceptable for me to wear 70% of my workout look to work or when I'm running errands because it increases the odds I"ll go to the gym later that day by about 100%.

Recently, we had the chance to connect a handful of Vocalpoint Bloggers with Dick's Sporting Goods to find out their transition style tips on how to turn a workout look into something you could wear all day. Here's what they had to share!

Tip #1: Choose a larger purse that can double as a gym bag.

Tip #2: Opt for black leggings over a graphic, colored pair. They’re more versatile and easily transition from the gym to beyond.

Tip #3: Throw on a leather jacket over your gym clothes for an effortlessly trendy look.

Tip #4: Or, give yourself a more professional look by adding a bold statement necklace.

Tip #5: Pack ballet flats in your gym bag - they’re lightweight and don’t take up much space. Not to mention, they’re both cute and comfortable when you’re running around town.

Tip #6: Easily transition your makeup by adding a swipe of red lipstick.

Once again, IT'S MUCH MORE DIFFICULT FOR ME, A PLUS SIZED GIRL, to attain this "EASY TRANSITION", IF I WANNA MAXIMIZE ON LOOKING MY "SLIMMEST"!! LEGGINGS (spandex) are NOT FLATTERING ON ME (spandex is a PRIVELEDGE NOT A RIGHT), IN ANY WAY AS I have HUGE THIGHS, WIDE HIPS AND BIG BUTT (not the sexy, hip big butt). I decided to just GO FOR IT at the gym, letting MY FATNESS SHOW in AFORMENTIONED SPANDEX, to stay cool (not sweating like a pig) and comfortable (as comfortable as a sweaty pig can feel). HOWEVER, oh hell no will I be EASY TRANSITIONING to/from WORKING OUT to/from ANYWHERE!!!! Just THROWING ON A TOP (tent) over my workout leggings and adding BALLERINA flats (yeah right), IS NOT AN "AN ALL DAY/EASY TRANSITION" CHOICE FOR ME!! I DON'T HAVE ANY "ALL DAY STYLE TIPS", because I GOTTA CHANGE CLOTHES A ZILLION TIMES BEFORE EACH OUTING!! IT'S DIFFICULT TO FIND STYLISH PLUS SIZED CLOTHING THAT IS SLIMMING (ON ME). AND I SWEAR THAT ALL STORE MIRRORS ARE TAINTED BECAUSE I LOOK COMPLETELY DIFFERENT IN MY MIRROR AT HOME than I looked IN THE CHANGING ROOM MIRROR!!!!

I can't live without my leggings. They are the most comfortable clothing piece ever.

Waterproof eyeliner and mascara! You'll look cute for whatever you're doing, but you won't look like a panda after you finish for the day!

Ohhh the ballet flats all the time are the best if you need and want to walk fast

I dont know how any woman could go without owning black leggings!! After those are on you can layer with tank top for work out then on top continue layering to desired look. Dress it up as much as needed then when you go for workout just remove your layers down to your tank and leggings. Lets not forget the fact of how absolutely comfortable you will be whether you are working or running errands or playing taxi cab for your children!!
