Workout Clothes You Can Wear During and After Exercise

We’re multitasking creatures so why can’t our gym clothes be the same way? When you’re going to work out and then meet your BFF for lunch after, you don’t want to show up wearing something that screams “gym clothes.” The good news? You don’t have to give up fashion for function.

These workout clothes will take you from your favorite sweat session to lunch or just running errands in your ‘hood without looking like schlub. A little spritz of dry shampoo or a top knot and you’ll be good to go.
