I’m finally coming around to the athleisure trend, partly because the designs are getting so good that I can no longer resist. Until now I stubbornly, strictly wore only black leggings for exercise. Inviting extra attention to my lower half seemed unnecessary and ill-advised. But recently I found myself ordering some galaxy-inspired multi colored workout tights and realized I had once again succumbed to a trend even though in my (apparently fictional) opinion of myself I am resistant to trends.
But the purchase got me giddy about the thought of going to the gym, dance class and yoga, so I’m going with it.
Plus, I have to work out pretty much every day for the next few months if I’m ever going to fit into any of my jeans again, so I might as well wear something interesting.
For tops I’m still insisting on loose cotton t-shirts and Champion jog bras from Target. But here are some very exciting leggings I’d like to add to my workout wardrobe. I hope they’ll also inspire you to run, dance, lift, stretch or whatever the stuff is you like to do to stay fit.
