From the Barre to the Bar– How to Wear Your Activewear Outside the Studio

From the Barre to the Bar– How to Wear Your Activewear Outside the Studio

When you click on some of the links in this post, I make a small commission on the purchase you make.  Thank you so much for supporting this blog! 

I have a confession to make.  I love my leggings.  Like love love love my leggings.  I own more leggings than jeans (one pair of jeans that looks good-done).  There are just so many cute options and if I had the option, I would totally wear leggings all the time.

These days sportswear companies actually want you to wear your leggings all the time, but most of us think–I just can’t.  But I’m here, a regular person, to tell you, yes you can!  You don’t have to be a avant garde fashionista or a runway model to wear your leggings out to dinner, running errands, running to brunch or to just about anything.

I pulled out three of my favorite leggings that I really do wear in barre and pilates classes and paired them with real pieces from my closet.  You can totally rock these looks.  Check ’em out.

Look 1

Run from the studio to the street with this edgy outfit.  Perfect for Saturday errands or playtime with the kids.  Wear the legging with a plain black tank or your favorite sports bra for class.  Then switch to street by adding a hoodie vest.

Look 2

These textured leggings!  Love, love, love!  They feel more like pants than workout clothes.  Plus, I promise they will make your butt look good!  Wear the leggings with a muscle tank for class.  Then head to your date, girls night out or whatever is on the books.

Look 3

These shiny black leggings give off a faux leather look.  If you ever wanted to pull-off leather pants, this is the way to do it!  Wear it to class with a muscle tank, midi sports bra or any tank really.  Then head out to dinner at a trendy restaurant or go on a hot date with the booties and silk blouse.

    You look gorgeous and I love these outfits! My problem is I sweat WAY too much and definitely need a complete change…and a shower. My one question is why do you have “similar” looks and not the actual clothes you’re wearing in the last black and white outfit? I love those shoes and I must have them!! 🙂

      Thanks Allie! You could always just wear your leggings out without going to the gym first. I know I will take any excuse to wear leggings instead of pants!

      I put similar looks up because I bought most of these items over a period of a few years. The shoes are actually from Ann Taylor and I don’t see them available any more. Sad. But I do have to say that DSW usually has a good selection. Sorry! I wish I could say that I knew where they were still available.

    Love your first look! I’m with you, I’m all about leggings! I only own a bunch of pairs of jeans and usually when I wear them, I think that they’re uncomfortable compared to leggings. I’m also all about dresses and skirts. Comfy & cute is where it’s at for me!
