Isn’t it awesome when you have an extra hour in the morning to contemplate your outfit for the day?
If you’re thinking, “What extra hour?!”—we’re with you. When you’re scrambling to make your 6 a.m. spin class (or just trying to take your dog out for a run), the last thing you want to think about is putting together two separate looks in one day.
As the brains and brawn behind the personal training and lifestyle brand Way of Gray, Sophie Gray is constantly switching between workouts and business, so when it comes to planning out her daily wardrobe, she’s a pro.
The good news? You don’t have to lug a ton of clothes to the gym or office to keep your look fresh and stylish from morning to night. The key, Gray says, is making your most-used activewear pieces work for multiple scenarios.
“I love wearing my black leggings with Chucks sneakers, a colorful sports bra, and a flowy top. This way, I can quickly throw a fancier jacket on and no one will know I was just working out,” she says.
Inspired by Gray’s take on sweat-to-street styling, we took four of her favorite workout staples—GapFit’s Interlace Back Tank Top, Breathe Roll Sleeve Tee, Studio Zip Joggers, and Technology Barre gFast High Rise Leggings—and styled them to transition from workouts to real life with just a few additional pieces.
Here’s how to use these “hero” pieces to kill your style game all day long.
Start the day with: Yoga
Pair the tee with these capri leggings to give your Sun Salutations a chic jolt of striped style.
Transition to: Office
With some white skinny jeans, a moto jacket, and majorly cute espadrilles, this look is pure Cali cool, no matter where you live—especially perfect if you work in tech or in a creative industry, where you want to look super-polished, but not like you’re trying too hard.
Studio Zip Joggers in Chic Plum, $49.95
Start the day with: HIIT
Add a strappy tank to these slouchy-cool joggers for an upgraded boot camp uniform. And looking great makes that zillionth push-up a bit easier, right?
Transition to: Brunch
And now, the best part of a challenging workout: the refueling! Add a denim shirt and camo ballet flats for some stylish swagger while you dig in to your smoothie bowl.
Start the day with: A jog in the park
A striped racerback tank, paired with these super-flattering leggings, is a classic and chic combo that looks pulled together—no matter how many miles you log.
Transition to: Running errands
Styled with a men’s white shirt and statement boot sneakers, the look transforms from classic to downright cool.
