Shopping for... Barre to Brunch (No, But Actually)

 

I’ve always thought that the concept of style that goes from “studio to street” was one of those editorial ideas that’s cute in theory but doesn’t actually apply to real life. (Who wants to sit at brunch in sweaty clothes, regardless of how stylish they are?)

These Gap leggings are an insanely adorable dupe for pricier pairs you may have seen all over IG. Paired with slip on kicks (to show off the amazing ankle detailing), an oversized sweatshirt (to help bring some legitimacy to your “leggings as pants” situation) and a crossbody bag with just enough room for a cosmetic case and a few mini toiletries, and you’ve got an outfit worth lingering in long after class is done. Opt for a carryall with clean lines and a little structure to add extra polish to your post-workout look.

Oh, and I present this marble print sports bra from Forever 21 as proof that on-trend workout gear doesn’t have to be expensive.
