These 10 easy throw-ons will take your outfit from gym to brunch quicker than you can say '10 squats'
Time to glam up
It’s a tough world out there for us, ladies.
On a regular weekend, we’re already up by 7am (which, by the way, should be totally illegal) to whip up some granola berry mix for breakfast. That’s before we trudge our way to the gym for an intensive hour-long session of panting, sweating and sometimes even – crying. To sum it up? Tortuous. And we haven’t even mentioned the fact that we’re somehow expected to doll ourselves up in time for brunch with the girls once the gym is done draining the life out of us. Side note to personal trainer – if you’re reading this, we love you.
Through the years, you best believe we’ve found the perfect sartorial cheat sheet to beat the system – with fashion trainers and chic dresses to throw over. And owing to the unbudgeable sports luxe trend, we’re guaranteed to look stylish head-to-toe with these 10 sporty-chic pieces no matter where we’re at.
Wear a maxi over your workout tights and sports bra to seamlessly transform into a beach goddess who’s ready to seize the weekend for some much-needed relaxing.

Sleek, cool and minimalist – what’s there not to love about these stylish kicks? These laced up sneakers makes for the perfect transitional piece to take you from ‘fitness frantic’ to ‘prim and polished’ in mere seconds.
This modish receptacle is perfect for lugging all your must-have workout essentials to the gym. We’re a big fan of the preppy stripe designs as it’s sure to add a bit of quirk to our outfits. It’s also big enough to haul a change of clothes without the usual grotesque bump showing up.
This taupe coloured bucket bag, with it’s contemporary geometric silhouette, offers a luxe upgrade to our usual gaudy neon duffel bags. You’ll be looking chic and stylish in this unconventionally fashion-forward tote bag.
If your hair’s in a mess after a heavy workout session, here’s an easy solution: wrap it up in a headscarf. Ride off the turban trend by rocking one yourself.
